The Hockey Saint by Howard Shapiro
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?
From the author of the critically acclaimed “The Stereotypical Freaks”, comes its sequel, “The Hockey Saint” a graphic novel about friendship, fame, and what we sacrifice for ambition and success.
But these are great for kids who may not like reading or kids who enjoy real-life comics. Would recommend! Downloaded from Netgalley (auto-approved for this publisher on there). This has been out since 2014 so can purchase now. Yay!
