Hockey is life in the small town of Beartown, but what happens when one of the team members is accused of rape? Will they stand by their teammate, or the victim?
I liked this one better than A Man Called Ove (3.5 stars) and it made for a great book club discussion, especially since nearly all of us are “sports” moms. The story moved pretty slowly the first half as characters were fleshed out, but towards the end, there were some really strong scenes, so I’d definitely recommend it.
