D about the severity of is drug addiction I also loved the way that Howard Shapiro wrote the relationships between the characters especially between Tom and Jeremiah as I loved the fact that Jeremiah shows Tom that there is to life than just playing Valentino hockey all the time and Tom cares enough for Jeremiah to go out ofis way to elp out Jeremiah with is drug addiction Maricia Inoue and Andres Mossa s artwork Maricia Inoue and Andres Mossa s artwork is beautifully done as the characters look truly realistic and I loved the way that the characters glow off the pages Now I will admit that there were some facial expressions on the characters that looked a bit odd especially regarding Tom always smiling during some serious moments but other than that the artwork really captures the raw emotions that the characters feel during this serious situation that deals with drug addiction What made me feel uncomfortable about this story The reason why I took off Shunned half a point from this rating was because I felt like the pacing was a bit slow at times especially at the beginning and I sometimes wished that the plot moved at a much faster pace to get to the main point of the story

friendship will truly enjoyReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog 5 stars for The Hockey Saint a graphic novel ARC provided to G the Book Diva blog in exchange for an onest review The author asked me
