Summary
  • "From the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry, and Britt-Marie Was Here, comes a poignant, charming novel about a forgotten town fractured by scandal, and the amateur hockey team that might just change everything."--
  • Winning a junior ice hockey championship means everything to the residents of Beartown, a struggling community slowly being eaten alive by unemployment and an steadily encroaching wilderness. Victory could attract government funding and an influx of talented athletes who would choose Beartown over the big nearby cities. Victory would mean everything to outcast Amat, to golden boy and star player Kevin, and to dedicated general manager Peter, whose own professional hockey career ended too early. When scandal erupts following a drunken celebration after a key win, no resident is unaffected. With so much riding on the success of the team, the line between loyalty and betrayal becomes difficult to discern.--
