Breakaway (Sports Stories) (Paperback)
Ice hockey or soccer? Adam has to make the hard choice between being on a team in his new school and his Dad’s aspirations for him. (8-12)
— From Sports - Fiction
Adam loves hockey, and he's good at it. So when his family moves to Vancouver, he's sure he'll impress in the elite hockey league his father signs him up for. The only problem is that he'll have to wait three weeks to find out, and it's tougher than Adam thought to make friends in the big city. But then he meets Rodrigo, a soccer nut whose family is from Uruguay, and finds that his hockey skills can work on the soccer field as well as the rink. He learns to love the new sport, but his close-minded father disapproves.
