Hockey is the only game worth playing in the rough-and-tumble prairie town of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. When sixteen-year-old A.J. Brandiosa makes the Triple A team of his dreams, he can hardly believe that his life is finally coming together.

And then it falls apart. A.J. makes an unexpected discovery about his best friend and teammate, Tulsa Brown, and he can't keep his rage and fear from spilling onto the ice. An aggressive defenseman is becoming a violent one. . .

An explosive novel by award-winning author Diana Wieler that looks honestly at teenage sexuality and the world of amateur hockey.

From Our Editors

When 16-year old A.J. Brandiosa makes it onto the Cyclones -- Moose Jaw's Triple A team-- it seems that the dream he has always worked towards is at last in sight. But after he learns that his best friend Tulsa Brown is gay, he brings his rage and confusion onto the ice, soon building a reputation for violence. Bay Boy is a thoughtful and realistic novel about coming of age and budding sexuality, and one that will win over young readers. Winner of the Governor General's Award.
