Body Check


by Matt Christopher

A hockey novel about playing fair and good sportsmanship.

Thirteen-year-old Brent Mullen isn’t sure he’s seeing what he thinks he’s seeing. Did his best friend and teammate just pull a dirty trick on the ice-all for the sake of winning? And if so, where did he learn the move? It soon becomes clear to Brent that some of his teammates are more interested in winning than playing fair, and that the new assistant coach is more than willing to teach them illegal moves to help them reach their goal. But just how far will those players go-and will Brent be able to stop them before someone gets seriously hurt?
