From the Back Cover

A new school mandate has all the Avonlea kids out of the schoolhouse door and onto the ice—including Sara Stanley. However, the townsfolk’s love of hockey is quickly surpassed by a variety of feuds and spats between just about everyone, all of which will be settled in one exciting game.

Adapted from the award-winning, internationally acclaimed television series, the magical adventures of “The Story Girl” continue—in the spirit and tradition of Lucy Maud Montgomery—for a new generation of young readers.
