And that ice skating rink is the reason people from Beartown believe tomorrow is going to be better than today. Their junior ice hockey squad has just qualified for the national finals, and they actually have an outside chance of winning. All the hopes and aspirations of this place now rest upon the shoulders of a few teenagers.
“The New York Times bestseller returns with a brilliant new novel about a small town where dreams are made real and the prize required to realize it.”
