My review for
Off The Ice
5 out of 5 stars!
This book is awesome. I love it.
It is told from two point of views Tate and Claire.
Clair has everything going for her, she’s getting ready to go to college and looking forward to auditioning for school plays and such.
But on the night before she leaves she she’s her best friend’s younger brother trying to help his dad into the car. But cause his dad had to many to drink doesn’t want to let his son drive him. They argue and he grabs Tate so hard he breaks his arm. Claire rushes to help to Tate and take him to the hospital. Things forever change that night for the both of them.
A year later and Claire has come home to help take care of her dad and their restaurant with her mother.
Claire feels guilty for being away at college and for wanting to go back.
Tate who now doesn’t seem so little anymore to her walks in and on the varsity hockey team.
Tate sees Claire and starts to realize he truly likes her. But can he get past his own demons with his father and the team counting on him to be the best goalie. To realize he needs to confront his father about everything he is doing to him and his team mates.
Claire thinking she shouldn’t be feeling happy or deserve it, since her father’s surgery doesn’t want to admit she really likes Tate.
These two characters frustrated me a little bit. I felt for them both and could see both sides to their family issues.
