Alex McKenzie is back, a promising young hockey player with hopes of making the Quebec City junior team. Though he still prefers fishing and roaming bush roads on his quad, he has to train hard under his demanding coach Larry in his hometown on the Lower North Shore of the St. Lawrence. His buddy Tommy is also vying to make the Quebec City juniors. Once in Quebec City, things are different. Tommy becomes sullen and obnoxious. He is hanging out with a bunch of dubious types and he appears to be getting more muscular. He and Alex are growing apart. In this sequel to the Jessie on my Mind, young people deal with powerful peer pressures, budding love, and tragedy. Their friendships are sorely tested, their values are challenged, and they begin to learn what is important in life.
