REVIEW
The Hockey Saint is about a kid in college who has just recently lost his parents and is still trying to put his life back together.  A Professional hockey player and himself meet and become good friends.  I found the book to be a bit odd but still a good read.The author wrote interesting characters and the pictures were eye catching.  I'm not much into sports but kept reading until the finish.
 I would suggest reading the first book of the series but book one is a stand alone.  Tom, is the main character and you start to feel for him almost immediately. The author takes the reader into  his life and then you meet Jake, the hockey player. 
Their friendship is based on loss but also on a necessity.  Without there being over the edge emotions, they are there for each other.  Even though the story is about Tom, you find out a lot about Jake's life.  He's as likable as well.  You find that you like both of them. The book contains a lot of really rough things that happen in life, death, loss, alcoholism, promises and secrets.  All of these things can eat away at a person.  The novel took  you through the ups and downs of two people's lives.  Some readers can relate so much to this.


I was given a complimentary copy of THE HOCKEY SAINT from the author, Howard Shapiro for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 HOCKEY STICKS.
