Description

Rink Rivals is a fast-paced sports novel by Métis author Jacqueline Guest. When twin brothers Evan and Brynley Selkirk move with their family from the remote Cree community of Whapmagoostui to bustling Calgary, their worlds turn upside-down. In place of the grey, frigid waters of Hudson Bay, they see the downtown canyons of a modern city. Bryn, a musical prodigy, trades piano practice for hockey practice to impress a new girlfriend; Evan, the family hockey hero, starts running with a bad crowd and neglecting the game. As the brothers' lies get them in deeper and deeper trouble with their parents, they have to rely on each other to gain the courage to do what's right. Rink Rivals is an action-packed account of how sport can help young people find the courage to confront sudden and radical changes in their lives. ATOS Reading Level: 5.1; Interest level: 8-13; Reading Level: 4.2.
