Steven Edwards’ worst nightmare has come true: Playing defence for the B team. How can he shoot to score when he’s stuck behind the blueline?
To make matters worse, his coach is tough and Josh, the coach’s son, is a bully. When Josh sets Steven up to take the blame for some pranks, Steven knows he’s in serious trouble.
Action-packed and high-spirited, Shoot to Score is the story of how an average hockey player finally gets his break.

"Shoot to Score is a light, undemanding read that imbeds aspects of the problem novel in the action of a hockey setting while adding just the slightest touch of early adolescent romance. Boys who are reluctant readers will be drawn to the book's action cover art. Recommended."

- David Jenkinson Canadian Book Review Annual

"It is a story about perserverance and striving in the face of disappointment."

- Pete McMartin Vancouver Sun

" with lots of action."
