    I'm not a hockey fan but I loved this book. This is not just a book about hockey; this is a story celebrating the human spirit. Matt McCoy's style of writing is clever, refreshing and honest. He gets "the kid" just right. From a young boy dreaming of being a hockey star to a frustrated adult, Danny Boy Doyle is - the kid who missed the bus. A clever title in so many ways. Danny's sheer determination will win your heart, even when he makes bonehead decisions, says the wrong things, and behaves ba I'm not a hockey fan but I loved this book.

Danny's sheer determination will win your heart, even when he makes bonehead decisions, says the wrong things, and behaves badly. (And he does behave badly) I laughed out loud a number of times and at the end I cried. Well done Mr. McCoy, you certainly have a way with words. I hope to see more from this writer.

    A fast paced and witty ride through the experiences of a young hockey player. While the authors insights into the bureaucracy of the hockey world are interesting, they pale in comparison to the rich development of characters he meets along way. The book chronicles the winding road of a young boy trying desperately to become a man, let alone a successful hockey player. An enjoyable read. I learned a few new things about hockey and a few new things about life.

    This book is not the greatest my book, I have read reviews and expected great things from a kids author but no. Also I looked him up on twitter and you think a father and child’s author would have some class...he was trashing a tough fellow named Mason Rudolph very bad on his twitter and calling him foul mouthed names and such if you wanna check this is how Twitter, @RealMcCoyzee , anyway the book was no good at all, but just needed to get my point across.

    Great story. A look at the road so many Canadian hockey players start out pursuing the holy grail of hockey- NHL. This story highlights the life lessons and opportunities hockey was able to realize for this player. Enjoyable read

    This was a really great read for me. The story moved well and it was very exciting displaying the passionate emotions a hockey player goes through to play the sport and achieve their dreams. It's not always easy....and Matt has told the story well. This was a really great read for me.
