Hockey fans will be attracted by the cover and held by the game descriptions, and those who like realistic fiction will appreciate the complexity of the boys' home life, with battling parents, hero-worshipping younger siblings and a father who expects too little of one twin and too much of the other. A good read for both proficient and reluctant readers. Booklist
Lots of action and emotional upheaval ensure that this will be a popular book for boys as well as girls. This reviewer's YA Book Review Group gave it nine points out of a possible ten for 'Good Read' status. VOYA
