Brothers on Ice
by John Danakas
Troy and Trent, who are brothers, both love hockey. When Trent turns out to be a natural in net, Troy finds he has to compete just to get a turn on the ice.
Troy and Trent are brothers who play on the same Winnipeg hockey team, Trent as forward and Troy in goal.
When Trent takes a turn in nets he finds out he's a natural, the best goalie on the team. Troy has to fight for ice time, and the brothers' relationship grows colder and colder.
Brothers on Ice is a poignant story of the struggle to learn what brings families together, and what drives them apart.
