W.C. Mack
Breakaway (Book 3: Hat Trick series)



Book Cover

JT "Nugget" McDonald has been looking forward to his first Christmas Break Hockey Camp for months. And now that school's finally out, he's ready to spend a solid week learning from a pro — Danny Holbrook of the Vancouver Canucks!

But because Mom was late signing him up, instead of working with his NHL hero, and most of his pals from the Cougars, Nugget will be training on another team. The good news: the coach is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. The bad news: Coach won her medals in women's hockey.

Nugget can't believe that his team, with a female coach, could possibly beat Danny Holbrook's team in the game at the end of the week. But with Coach Katie Gunnar at the helm, Nugget and his friends are headed for a big attitude adjustment.


Praise for W.C. Mack's Hat Trick series:

"A hockey lover's dream book... but do not limit it to only those with a love of sports because of the action, examination of relationships when faced with obstacles, and conflict resulting from the fear of change." —CM Magazine

"Mack has does an outstanding job at showing younger readers some important lessons. From working hard in practice to listening to and respecting your parents and coach, [Mack] has written another excellent story" —Hockey Blog in Canada

"It's a good story with a good message... if you have a young hockey fan who is perhaps a reluctant reader or struggling a bit in school, W. C. Mack's Hat Trick may be the perfect stocking stuffer this Christmas."
