Rating by Katie:4 out of 5 stars

Received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 
 
    Jake is a famous hockey player, but he isn't your typical star. Tom is a regular college student and works hard for his grades and his performance in Hockey. They have a couple things in common and when these two individuals come together, they begin a friendship that will last a life time. This book is not expected to be released until September 2014. The author wanted to do a test run on this novel. I have never really sat and read a graphic novel. When I did open one up, the pictures distracted me and I wasn't able to really pay attention to the actual story.   There are no pictures yet in this story, but I didn't need them. I was very satisfied with it. Adding the pictures will only be a bonus.
     I thought this read was great! It was a fun read for me, and I will definitely buy this graphic novel when it becomes available. The book starts out with two different characters, who have a couple things in common. They both love hockey and are mourning losses. The author did a wonderful job in creating a relationship between Jake and Tom. I love how Jake, a very famous hockey player, humbles himself and serves people in his community. This is the first graphic novel I have read by Howard Shapiro, but it will not be the last! Thank you Mr. Shapiro for allowing me to do this review for you!
