Book Review/Giveaway: Hockey Agony. Ends October 5th


Hockey Agony

Hockey Agony written by Donna McDine. Illustrated by Julie Hammond

 

About the Book: Peer Pressure and Honesty many times go hand-in-hand.  What is Larry to do when his teammate asks him to cheat when he is given the responsibility to run the clock during the big hockey game?  Outwardly, it may seem he will follow suit, but his conscious tells him otherwise at the moment of truth. http://www.donnamcdine.com/donnasbooks.html

My Review: Larry is a Hockey player for his school team. Unfortunately, he is unable to play due to a broken leg. Now he has to sit and watch his team play against Peal River without him, he wasn’t happy at all. But his coach decided to give him the responsibility of being in the score box to run the clock. Larry wasn’t pleased and by the tone in his voice his coach wasn’t pleased with his attitude and lack of respect, but he saw potential in Larry. So Larry decided to run the clock during the game bad enough he couldn’t play now he has to sit with the opposite team player to run the clock.

When Larry’s teammate Peter heard that Larry will be the clock runner for Friday’s game he tries to convince Larry to shave a few seconds off the clock if they get a penalty to ensure a win for their team, Larry felt that was cheating. But will he shave off a few seconds to save his team?

This book addresses attitude, respect, peer pressure, discipline, cheating and honesty. I highly recommend this book.
