Accessibly written and peppered with humour, the essays in this book will charm specialists, sports fans, and everyone in between. When he finds the time, he enjoys watching YouTube videos of Bobby Orr, his favourite player.
He is a diehard fan of the Nordiques and of scientific hockey, even though the person he shares his life with thinks that the Maple Leafs are based in Edmonton and that every hockey player ought to be given his own puck to prevent fighting. He secretly dreams of driving a Zamboni. He sells newspapers and carries bundles from the garment factory.

In the Clear alternates, chapter by chapter, between Pauline's horror-filled year in the hospital five years earlier and her struggles to adapt in the present of and At the end of the book, her triumphs in past and present come together and she is able to move forward with new friendships, a renewed bond with her mother and, most important, a new faith in herself.
