Face-Off By Stacy Juba



Blurb-
Head-to-Head, Skate-to-Skate, It's Winner Takes All! What might have been a dream come true has turned into a nightmare. Brad's twin brother T.J. has gotten himself out of the fancy prep school his father picked for him and into the public high school Brad attends. Now T.J., the bright light in his father's eyes, is a shining new star on the hockey team where Brad once held the spotlight. And he's testing his popularity with Brad's friends, eyeing Brad's girl and competing to be captain of the team. The whole school is rooting for a big double-strength win...not knowing that their twin hockey stars are heating up the ice for a winner takes all face-off. Re-issue of the hockey classic, originally written when the author was a teenager. This young adult novel has entertained thousands of young readers and appeared on many reading lists. Among its many honors: - The Hockey Hall of Fame's Junior Education Program included Face-Off on its recommended reading list for the junior and intermediate levels. - Recommended in the sports category of Best Books for Young Teen Readers: Grades 7-10 by John T. Gillespie This new edition contains a bonus excerpt of the sequel: Offsides (Face-Off Book Two) and the young adult paranormal thriller Dark Before Dawn.

Tifferz Take-
I get a charge out of a hockey story as long as it is soundly written. I am please to say Stacy has competence in her storytelling. I appreciate the characters and what they experience. I dig the witty banter among brothers and friends. My heart went out to those boys when at home. Another pleasing story that keeps you thirsting for more. I will be awaiting the arrival of Offsides. It will be fun to see how things play out.
