This is my second book that I’ve read by author Fredrik Backman, Beartown. The other book I read was My grandmother asked me to tell you she’s sorry. Beartown is a small town whose community care about there passion for hockey and their junior ice hockey team. Competing in the national semifinals game has a lot at stake for the town and for it best player Kevin. For Kevin this is an opportunity to leave a small town and go pro. For the town its a chance to be recognize again as the best hockey town and to bring attention to the town.
With so much pressure on the shoulder of one player is to much to bear for a teenager. It a chain reaction that lead up to a violent act on a younger girl. An act that turns the town against the young girl and their only interest is what best for the town and hockey.
