Book Excerpt

Zack consacre toutes ses heures libres au hockey. Il a d’ailleurs décidé de rejoindre l’équipe locale, les Requins de Rocketville. Parce qu’il est bon, on lui a attribué la position de joueur de centre et le titre de capitaine. Sa renommée le précède souvent, si bien que ses adversaires le craignent. Tout cela le pousse à envisager de faire carrière dans ce sport, mais pour l’instant, il souhaite avant tout s’amuser ! Le soir venu, quand la fatigue se fait sentir, le garçon s’endort fréquemment blotti contre son père, Marc, en regardant un match de ses idoles à la télévision. Il en a pris l’habitude depuis son plus jeune âge. Ce temps passé ensemble reste un moment d’étroite complicité entre le père et le fils.
