Captain Skidmark Dances with Destiny

Coming April 4, 2023. Pre-order today!

By: Jennifer A. Irwin

For a while, we were just two cool guys in a cool car out on the town: Alex the Hockey Stud and his sidekick, Captain Skidmark.

Will is a Canadian eighth grader who hates hockey—and he stinks at it, too. Will is bullied at school, doesn’t have any friends, and is generally miserable. His seventeen-year-old hockey-star cousin, Alex, is the cherry on the sundae: when he comes to stay with Will's family, the boys hate each other on sight.

Then, Will stumbles into a local dance school and discovers that for the first time ever, he's good at something—but his dad forbids it. No son of his is going to dance. 

Will takes readers on a journey through noogies, awkward conversations, and epic farts. Filled with humor, nuance, and emotion, this novel asks serious questions about what makes a family and what makes a man.
