Everyone from Didsbury High remembers Katie Fisher as the dumpy brainiac from the poor side of town. Everyone from Didsbury High remembers Paul van Dorn as the school hockey star—and heartthrob. But now they’re facing off—and matching up in more ways than one. Katie’s lost the pounds, added some self-confidence, and become a drop-dead gorgeous sociology professor. And since a series of concussions put an end to Paul’s pro-hockey career, his star has dimmed. Now he hits the ice as a youth hockey coach. But he’s still got the hometown crowd behind him as the owner of a bar called the Penalty Box. Paul is reliving his glory days. Katie wishes she could put those years behind her. And the battle of wills that ensues just might knock love right out of the game…

"The Stanley Cup. The oldest sports trophy that is continuously fought for. Where it all begins - and ends. The only one to love." Kyle Callendar, like hundreds of working-class Canadian boys, sees hockey as his one shot at glory. But that elusive glory is not always what it seems. Both a gripping father-son narrative and a harsh and searching look at Canada's national obsession, The Penalty Box tells the story of Kyle, an ex-pro hockey player and official escort to the Stanley Cup. Kyle's father, a World War II veteran, is a remote man who overvalues the manliness of hockey and sees Kyle's talent for the game as his life's work. But in his father's eyes, Kyle can never measure up, never skate fast enough, hit hard enough, bring home girls beautiful enough. As he grows in his skill and his own love for the game, Kyle discovers he's unable to find an identity outside of hockey, even when the game is responsible for a painful secret that he can't bring himself to accept. It is the unravelling of that secret - one that is shared by many hockey players in this taciturn man's world - that drives Kyle to a breaking point and finally forces him to re-evaluate himself, his relationships, and his complex feelings for the sport that consumes him.

“Gillot’s novel about soccer is also a delicate character study of a solitary man slowly rejoining the world” (Publishers Weekly). Vincent once had a shot at becoming a professional soccer player, but a career-ruining injury put an end to his dreams. A tough kid from a poor family, he has become an emotionally cut-off man with frustrated hopes and limited options. He finds himself coaching an under-sixteen soccer club in an attempt to keep alive his only passion. The team he coaches is little more than a roster of hotheaded boys, none of whom understands the on-field chemistry needed to win. Simply put, they aren’t of a championship caliber. Then Vincent’s unemployed sister, a single mother, suddenly dumps her thirteen-year-old son on him. With no clue how to take care of a teenager, Vincent panics. He decides to bring his nephew to practice, and eventually throws him into the scrimmage. It’s then that Vincent notices there’s something strange about Léonard. He has a preternatural ability for anticipating each striker’s intentions, making him a remarkably talented goalkeeper, but he seems detached, absent, lost. It becomes clear that Léonard has undiagnosed Asperger’s syndrome—and also that, with Léonard’s abilities as a goalie, Vincent’s ragtag team has a chance to reach the finals. The team will need to rally behind this strange kid from Paris in order to get there, and for that to happen, Vincent will have to let down his guard and open his heart for the first time ever. “No love of sport is required to feel the genuine emotion pulsing from this story about making connections.” —Shelf Awareness
