When twin brothers Evan and Brynley Selkirk move with their family from the remote Cree community of Whapmagoostui to bustling Calgary, their worlds turn upside-down. In place of the grey, frigid waters of Hudson Bay, they see the downtown canyons of a modern city.
Bryn, a musical prodigy, trades piano practice for hockey practice to impress a new girlfriend; Evan, the family hockey hero, starts running with a bad crowd and neglecting the game. As the brothers' lies get them in deeper and deeper trouble with their parents, they have to rely on each other to gain the courage to do what's right.
Rink Rivals is an action-packed account of how sport can help young people find the courage to confront sudden and radical changes in their lives. [Fry Reading level - 4.2

Rink Rivals is well-written, addictive, and highly engaging. Guest is particularly adept at creating relatable characters that are compelling in their own development as well as in how they act throughout the narrative. The text is well suited for its audience of youngand also reluctantreaders. While Rink Rivals is much more geared toward a male audience, girls with an interest in sports will also likely get much enjoyment out of this novel which is deserving of its designation as a Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Book.Highly Recommended
