Call it a Day!

Marie Oskarsson, Ida Björnstad

Bill Åström, son of the legendary NHL player Mackan “Big Mac” Åström, spends all his time at the local sports centre in Beartown.

But something is happening within the team.

More and more players stop showing up to practices.

And although Bill tries to encourage his teammates to carry on with the sport, even more talk about leaving.

Soon Bill realizes that something is going on off the ice, something that is having a negative effect on the entire team.

One of the town’s biggest corporations is planning to move and lots of jobs are at risk.

Sorting out difficult situations on the pitch is something Bill is used to but can such a huge problem as this be solved with the same strategy and fighting instinct used on the ice?

Call it a Day! is a fast-moving book about how difficult it can be keeping a team together.

A book centered on ice hockey that also touches on themes of friendship and rivalry.
