About the Book

Eleven-year-old Caley loves hockey—but not goaltending. While enduring boring drill after boring drill, she just wants a chance to play anywhere on the ice but inside a stupid net. Despite her protests, Caley’s coach seems stuck on her being the goalie. While standing inside the net during each practice and game, Caley feels uninterested, depressed, and grumpy. Although she knows her professional hockey player dad is proud of her role as a girl goalie, what would he think if he knew she secretly hated it? As Caley embarks on a journey of self-discovery, she learns what it means to be part of a team, where her place is in a family of hockey players, and more importantly, who she is both on and off the ice. In this young adult tale, a hockey player seemingly destined to be a boring goalie learns valuable lessons about teamwork, grit, and the value of never quitting, no matter what.
