Billy Campbell lives for one thing: hockey. When the pond freezes over at MacLennan’s Grove, the boys take to the ice. Growing up in the fifties and idolizing the Rocket and Gordie Howe, Billy skates faster, works harder, and practices longer than any of his friends, until the game becomes the stuff of dreams. But there is a rude awakening: Will his worried parents let him play competitive hockey? Will he find a coach who recognizes his potential? Will he be big enough, fast enough, and tough enough? And most importantly, will he own his hockey dreams, or will his hockey dreams own him?
