Her dad was a hockey star, and her grandfather made a rink for her as soon as she could stand. But when she leaves her grandmother behind to play for the university team, she can't quite find her own place in the game. From the rowdy hilarity of the Scarlets' dressing room to a quiet reticence toward first loveand with a little beer-bonging and a lot of hockey along the wayIz tries to navigate the ways loss is played out on the ice. Both fast-paced and hesitant,Twenty Milescelebrates women's hockey and offers an uncompromising look at the ways in which the sport haunts the women who play it.
