Riley ParkBook - 2009
Seventeen-year-old Corbin plays hockey and is known as a scrapper on and off the ice. Fighting makes him feel strong. Corbin's friend, Darius, is socially adept and popular, and Darius's reckless risk-taking makes Corbin feel alive. With Rubee, a girl both boys like, Darius crosses a line, and after a party at Riley Park, Darius and Corbin are attacked. Darius is killed; Corbin is seriously injured. Corbin fights his clouded memory--he can't identify the assailants. He fights his weakened body--he can no longer play hockey. He fights the loss of his friend. But when he gives up the fight, he finds strength in acceptance.
