Skating Over Thin Ice

We rated this book:


This is a powerful story about two talented teenagers facing new challenges and changes as they grow up. Imogen St Pierre is a talented pianist, and Nathan McCormick is a star hockey player. They are finishing high school, unsure of what the future holds for them. As they face their next steps, they must confront their fears and follow their uncertain paths to growing up. Imogen is learning to break out of her musical comfort zone by playing with her family trio. Nathan is unsure if he will be able to play hockey after an incident at the championships last season. This story embraces the struggles of change for two young adults talented beyond measure and shows how they grow to embrace those changes. The characters are breathtaking, beautiful, strong, vulnerable, and complex. The plot weaves these two lives together exquisitely, like a spider’s web. The writing is accessible and elegant. The dialogue flows smoothly and draws the reader into the conversations. This is such a positive coming-of-age story about accepting change. I highly recommend this book to anyone 13 and up. It will draw you in, uplift you, move you, and maybe even change your outlook.
