Blue IceBook - 2001
Nick Stirling figures his life is over. His dad's been laid off and doesn't seem to care, his family has to move to a crummy house on the wrong side of town, and Nick is transferred to another school. But that's not the half of it. He can't play inline hockey anymore for the team sponsored by his dad's old company. And his new neighbourhood has a team - the Phantoms - made up of a bunch of losers in old roller blades who can't skate backward.
When Nick is asked to join the "losers" in a minor tournament, he discovers that what they lack in skill they make up for in guts. After the Phantoms get a sponsor and a coach, Nick has a chance to make a difference with his new team. And for the first time, he begins to make real friends.
There's no way he'd ever go back to his old team, even if they begged. . . Or would he?
