Bad Boy - Ice Hockey. A Gay Best Friend. And Lots of Questions About Who You Are.

By Diana Wieler

It's senior year of high school, and when A.J. and his best friend Tulsa both make the Triple A Hockey team, everything seems perfect.

Then A.J. discovers something Tulsa wasn't ready to share - that Tulsa is gay.

A.J.'s escalating temper and aggressiveness on the ice make him the "Bad Boy" of the Cyclone hockey team, as he struggles to figure out what Tulsa's being gay means about who he is.

"Bad Boy" won the
Governor General's Award for the best Canadian Children's Literature book of 1989. Add your review of "Bad Boy" in comments!
