Josh, Sam and Peter are together again for their last summer at hockey camp, and this time they're all on the same team. Josh is certain that nothing could be better than playing with his friends and cousin Troy, until he discovers that his card shark cousin is gambling with the team's success. This riveting finale finds Lorna Schultz Nicholson's celebrated characters caught up in more trouble than any of them had bargained for.
