Description
Instant New York Times Bestseller! The author of A Man Called Ove returns with &;a lyrical look at how a community heals, how families recover, and how individuals grow&; (The Washington Post). &;Fans of Backman will not be disappointed. His work continues to amaze and captivate, enlighten and thrill.&; &;Shelf Awareness A small community tucked deep in the forest, Beartown is home to tough, hardworking people who don&;t expect life to be easy or fair. No matter how difficult times get, they&;ve always been able to take pride in their local ice hockey team. So it&;s a cruel blow when they hear that their town&;s ice hockey club might soon be disbanded. What makes it worse is the obvious satisfaction that all the former Beartown players, who now play for a rival team in the neighboring town of Hed, take in that fact. But the arrival of a newcomer gives Beartown hockey a chance at a comeback. Soon a team starts to take shape around Amat, the fastest player you&;ll ever see; Benji, the intense lone wolf; always dutiful and eager-to-please Bobo; and Vidar, a born-to-be-bad troublemaker. But bringing this team together proves to be a huge challenge, especially as the town&;s enmity with Hed grows more and more acute as the big game approaches. By the time the last goal is scored, a resident of Beartown will be dead, and the people of both towns will be forced to wonder if, after everything, the game they love can ever return to something as simple and innocent as a field of ice, two nets, and two teams. Us against you. Here is a declaration of love for all the big and small, bright and dark stories that give form and color to our communities. With immense compassion and insight, Fredrik Backman reveals how loyalty, friendship, and kindness can carry a town through its most challenging days.
