Meet six kids a lot like you. Except . . .


. . . Benny, Jenny, Karl, Starlight, DJ and Mo got zapped in an evil plot gone wrong — and they became the super-est team the world has ever seen.


Starlight wakes up in an alternate reality, although she doesn’t realize it right away. She sees kids skating on a secluded pond using ancient equipment. Is she in the past?


The kids are secretly playing hockey because it’s banned for all but the elites. Plebes who might never make the pros are not allowed to play at all. Only select individuals chosen by Dr. Boom — the supreme leader who has taken over Canada — are given the privilege of playing the game.


Starlight must track down the rest of the Super Six so they can defeat Dr. Boom and his horrible minions and restore hockey to its former glory.


This is the eighth action-packed, laugh-a-minute book in the Hockey Super Six series.
