FROM A KINNELON LIBRARY TEEN REVIEWER:
Nick is an all-star hockey player and one of the most respected players and students on his high school hockey team. However, he never looks up when he handles the puck. This creates a problem when the other team decides to check him. The first time he gets a grade one concussion, the second time he gets a grade two, and the third time he gets a grade three and is completely knocked out. Nick is in the hospital getting analyzed and has trouble remembering things. He is told to hold off on hockey, stay home from school, and rest. When the doctor calls him back for another visit, things are not looking so great, and Nick’s life might have to change forever.
"Open Ice" is an awesome novel, a must-read, and very realistic.
