Description

Leigh Aberdeen is determined to win the hockey championship with a new, all girls team, the Chinooks. So when the coach adds a know-it-all boy to the mix, Leigh is furious.
To make matters worse, the team goalie -- Leigh's best friend -- starts mysteriously dropping out from practices just as the Chinooks show they can win.
With humour, action, and suspense, Jacqueline Guest weaves these threads together to their surprising conclusion.
