Becoming Phoebe by J. Michael Neal - Book Review

Book Description:

Eighteen-year-old Phoebe Rose spent her childhood in one foster household after another, never having a place she could feel safe or group of friends she belonged to. What kept her going was hockey. The rink was the only place she felt at home.
Now what she wants more than anything is to play on her college hockey team—to leave her past behind and start building a new life. But she knows things are never that simple. Becoming Phoebe is about painful secrets, unexpected friendships, and joining a team so you can become your true self.

Book Review by Carmen:

I knew that I was going to give this book a 5 star rating when I started reading it. I enjoyed reading about Phoebe's Ice Hockey career, but at the same time also found the story heartbreaking at places. It also would have been nice if Phoebe had met her parents (if they'd been alive). I also learnt about a new condition that I previously hadn't known about, and it was interesting to read about it. I got a copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.
