Breaking the Ice (A Young Adult Novel)
Anne LeBold Douglas

High school seniors Carly and Samantha are teammates on their school hockey team, but they're opposites in almost every way. The only thing strong, independent Carly cares about is getting a college hockey scholarship that will put her on the road to the Olympics. Samantha’s life revolves around her handsome, basketball-star boyfriend and her faith.

As their friendship grows, they influence each other in unexpected ways. Sam draws out a more vulnerable side of Carly and through the friendship, Carly gets to know the first boy who seems to be interested in more than her hockey skills. Through Carly, Sam learns to approach the world around her with more character and courage. But neither girl could have imagined how much they would need each other—and God—when their dreams start slipping away.

As Sam and Carly attempt to navigate the stormy waters of betrayal and rejection, both are forced to dig deep inside themselves. And when they come to the end of themselves, they discover what lies on the other side of surrendering to God.
