The Hockey Saint by Howard Shapiro

Oct 1, 2014

The highly anticipated sequel to "The Stereoypical Freaks" and the 2nd book in the "Forever Friends" Trilogy, this is "The Hockey Saint"

Twenty-one year old Jeremiah Jacobson is the world's best hockey player, but he wasn't prepared for the frenzy and scrutiny that came with that title. Tom Leonard is an average college sophomore... just a guy trying to find his place in the world as he sorts through issues that are both very real and seemingly insurmountable. 

Through a chance meeting, these two strike up an unlikely friendship. Their bond is tested when Tom discovers that his idol isn't as perfect up close as he seems from afar. With Jeremiah living a little too much in the moment and with his past catching up to him, will Tom be able to help him before it's too late?

I gave this graphic novel a 


The Hockey Saint was a wonderful read. Whether you are a hockey fan or not, you will enjoy reading about Tom and his experiences. I appreciated how much Tom fights to become a better player and how much he is willing to do to help a new friend.  Tom is an inspiring character, readers will be able to relate to him and the issues he faces. We all have a few  misconceptions about the people we believe to be our heroes, it's not until we get to know them that we see the reality of who and what they are. A must read especially for teen sport fans!

Note:  I enjoyed how Shapiro added music recommendations a the beginning of each chapter.

About the Author
Howard Shapiro
Since I decided to start writing children’s stories my goal has been to create characters that adults and kids would care about and be interested in following their journey. And also to create stories that SAY SOMETHING. There are thousands of kids books out there and in my little corner of the book store, I want and wanted to do something that can stand the test of time, be relevant and vital. Plus, make it entertaining and enjoyable to read each and every time. I hope I am succeeding in that goal. I would love to hear from you, so please send me an email

I thank you for reading this, visiting my website and sharing your valuable time with me.
