Charlie Joyce knows he can play hockey — but can he prove it to his new classmates?

Things are not going well for 14-year-old Charlie Joyce. Tragic circumstances have forced his family to move to a new town, and now, as the new kid at Terrence Falls High School, he has a lot to prove. This school and town take their hockey seriously and Charlie wants to be on the team, but the best players in the school have taken a disliking to him and warn him not to bother trying out. Charlie knows he can't back down, and decides to let his game do the talking — no matter how unpopular it will make him.
