Summary Fourteen-year-old Madeline Snow is the star goalie and captain of her girls rep hockey team in Burnaby, British Columbia. So when her RCMP sergeant father moves the family to his new posting in Fort St. James, a remote town in northern BC, she feels like she is losing a lot. In her new town Maddie is more unhappy than ever. Things begin to turn around when she discovers she has made the town's only Bantam team, a boys team called the Stars, but since they have a skilled goalie in Connor Spencer, Maddie wonders if she will ever get to play. When Connor dies in a car accident, Maddie is overwhelmed with sadness and guilt for having thought that only if Connor were hurt would she get to play. But Maddie has become part of the community, and her friends and the natural surroundings in Fort St. James help her to find the focus she needs to fill the net that Connor's death has left empty.
