It was difficult for our school to get behind the idea of team spirit and to fan the flame of hope when we were crushed in each game season after season, but I remember the anticipation that began to grow amongst the student body those years. This experience is what allowed me to fully succumb to the excitement of the hockey scenes in this story. Halloween IT Pennywise style The Lion King shirt is a large piece of this book and I’d go as far as suggesting that hockey is its own character in the novel, but it wasn’t from an overly technical point of view. I found that the overall plot and the hockey scenes awoke that same feeling I used to have while watching high school baseball and it brought to life a sport I never dreamed I could become entranced by.
This seems to be the central theme surrounding the book. There are many characters in this novel; the ever-changing and growing cast seems to add multidimensional aspects to the story that cause it to leap off the page and bury deep into your mind. There were certain characters and views that I was naturally more drawn.
In an attempt to not spoil anything for future readers, I’ll just state that the content is heavy and much darker than a traditional Halloween IT Pennywise style The Lion King shirt story, but it still holds that magical quality where you seem to be watching the exchanges and thoughts happening from just outside the realm of reason. There is nothing in this tale that hasn’t been written before, but the way in which it is told was especially unique and the subject matter is timely and necessary.
