"Biren has created a romance that fans of Jenny Han and Sarah Dessen should love."
— School Library Journal
"A fun romp of a teen romance via an exciting hockey season, this book has all the right ingredients—a spunky, multifaceted main character, a love interest who turns out to be a decent individual, and plenty of internal and external conflict . . . A teenage love story steamy enough to melt the ice in the rink."
— Kirkus Reviews
"A fun read that simultaneously puts the reader into the hockey world as an insider and an outsider . . . It's a last-act gut punch that really puts a spotlight on what female athletes have to deal with. A must-read for anyone who has had to defy expectations."
"Fans of White’s A Season of Daring Greatly will want to move from the baseball diamond to the hockey rink for this smart, charming sports read."
— The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
