From the author of The Last Thing You Said, a YA romance about a girl on a boys hockey team who happens to fall for the team captain.

Holland Delviss wants to be known for her talent as a hockey player, not a hockey player who happens to be a girl. So, to keep her spot on the boys’ varsity team, she has rules:

  1. Practice harder than anyone else, even if that means 5 A.M. training sessions.
  2. Keep a low profile, even if that means ignoring trolls calling her a distraction, a gimmick, or worse.

But when her team is selected for HockeyFest, a televised statewide event, Holland becomes the lead story (Goodbye, rule #2!). Not everyone is thrilled with Holland’s new fame, but there’s one person who fiercely supports her, and it’s the last person she expects: her bossy team co-captain, Wes.

And Wes begins surprising her. He shares her passion for ’80s glam metal, and his touch feels strangely electric. With the cameras set to roll, Holland is dangerously close to breaking yet another rule: No dating teammates, ever.

A deeply romantic and empowering novel about shutting out the noise from the crowd, so you can listen to your heart.

A Junior Library Guild Selection

“A fun romp of a teen romance via an exciting hockey season, this book has all the right ingredients—a spunky, multifaceted main character, a love interest who turns out to be a decent individual, and plenty of internal and external conflict. . . . A teenage love story steamy enough to melt the ice in the rink.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A fun read that simultaneously puts the reader into the hockey world as an insider and an outsider. . . . It’s a last-act gut punch that really puts a spotlight on what female athletes have to deal with. A must-read for anyone who has had to defy expectations.” ?Booklist
