I’m old enough for that to be romantic and adorable before reading Kelly Anne Blount’s and Lynn Rush’s In The Penalty Box.
After a horrendous injury, Willow Covington is home nursing her wounds. She’s doing what she can to work her way back to the Olympic Figure Skating Team she was on before getting hurt. It just isn’t going well. Going to open ice time at the local ice rinks is giving her practice and keeping her sane.
Brodie Windom is the wealthy and athletic ‘It-Guy.’ Girls want to know him, and guys want to be like him. What does he want? He wants someone who doesn’t fall for the Windom name and doesn’t care about the legacy with which it comes. The girl who just checked him where the sun doesn’t shine looks like his next new mistake. She’s beautiful. And he learned last year beautiful ruins hockey. But when she makes an unlikely save from the stands that put their goalie to shame, he starts thinking of her in a new light.
In The Penalty Box is a cute love story with a lot of baggage. I was halfway in thinking that this was all sweet and precious when the poop hit the fan. There is some brutal reality in In The Penalty Box that many kids will, unfortunately, be able to relate to, and that is a shame.
I recommend this book to fans of Sara Ney’s Kissing in Cars.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.
