If you could travel through time, who would you want to meet?

Lucas Finnigan eats, sleeps and breathes hockey. With his friends Edge, Swift and Crunch, Lucas plays on his hometown’s rink, dreaming of the day when he knows he’ll make the NHL. But lately money has been tight at home, and, after a major growth spurt, Lucas is forced to wear hand-me-down gear that doesn’t quite fit. Now he’s not sure he’ll ever make it to the Hall of Fame like his hockey heroes.

And that’s not the only problem. With the community arena’s chiller on the fritz, and replacement parts too tough to come by, it looks like Lucas and his friends may be doomed to a season on a plastic rink—or worse, to no hockey at all!

But with a magical discovery, and some help from one of hockey’s greatest players (who was a kid once, too!), their final skate might turn into their first great adventure . . .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great start to a new hockey series Great start to a new hockey series aimed at readers who are relatively new to chapter books. The Ice Chips is a co-ed hockey team that is loosing their home rink. Though they will be moving to a fancy new rink, they want one last skate on their home ice. Once they arrive at the rink, they see that the ice is in bad shape, it needs re-surfacing. This is when the trouble/challenges/magic starts. Wait, did I say magic. Oh yes, that's what makes this book so special. I love where this magic takes them and what they experience and learn along the way. Not going to tell you a word more since I don't want to spoil any secrets. It's great the way the team members support each other both on and off the ice. They aren't just thinking about their next goal, but of their friends both old and new. Young readers will be able to relate to the members of the team even if they don't play hockey. The story is more about friendship and including new friends. The authors also wrote the Screech Owl series for 9-12 readers. The team will return in the Ice Chips and the Haunted Hurricane. #IndigoEmployee
