Even more amazing is the fact that the very first time you use that stick, you score a hat trick! Well, this is what happens to the girl in this story. She becomes the star of her hockey team, but then she reads that Wayne is having problems with his game. He is in the worst slump of his career. Could it be that he is missing his hockey stick? Will she give up her most treasured possession to help him? Read the book to find the answer.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
