Marc is a goalkeeper who thinks he's pretty good between the pipes, but the team's new coach doesn't agree. Marc is very upset, and his mom and dad are too busy with work and don't take any of this seriously. Then his grandfather, a former goalie himself, starts coaching Marc, using the story of the great Montreal Canadiens goalie Jacques Plante as a motivator. The hockey legend inspires Marc to new confidence, and he learns that older people can make a difference in younger lives, that perseverance pays off, and that it's okay to respectfully challenge authority.

I like this book because it's interesting and because the the boy worked hard until he become a
better goalie it not just for this the true is because the picture was better. Will thank you for putting this book in the Pickering library.
