Publisher Summary

Young Kate Kazmaier discovers her own skills and family legacy while at an elite girl’s summer hockey campBest. Summer. Ever. That’s what Kate Kazmaier thinks when she receives an invitation to an elite girl’s summer hockey camp. Some of the best 9 - 12 year old hockey players, from around the world, will be there and Kate who lives hockey 24-7, can’t wait to go. Everything would be perfect except for one thing, she has to stay with her grandmother who she barely knows. Little does she know that her grandmother, Abby, was a female hockey pioneer. Forced to cut her hair and say that her name was Abe because there were no girls teams when she was young, she schooled the boys back then and became one of the best goalies in Canada. That is until her true identity was found out.She never let any hurdle stop her and Kate learns from Abby that there is more to playing hockey than simply being the best player on the ice, it’s about being the best person off the ice. Kate teaches Abby a thing or two as well. Mainly how ones relationship with the past ultimately shapes their future. Together they form an unlikely yet strong bond that gets tested in ways they never could have imagined.
