From the Publisher
In the days of Roch's childhood, winters in the village of Ste.
Justine were long. Life centered around school, church, and the
hockey rink, and every boy's hero was Montreal Canadiens hockey
legend Maurice Richard. Everyone wore Richard's number 9. They
laced their skates like Richard. They even wore their hair like
Richard. When Roch outgrows his cherished Canadiens sweater, his
mother writes away for a new one. Much to Roch's horror, he is sent
the blue and white sweater of the rival Toronto Maple Leafs,
dreaded and hated foes to his beloved team. How can Roch face the
other kids at the rink?
