Strange accidents are stalking the skaters at Scarborough's Millwood Arena. At first it's just a falling ladder that narrowly misses top skater Paula, but soon the dirty tricks become much worse.

Everyone is on edge, including Angie, Paula's main rival for a medal. Angie knows she's not to blame, but some of the skaters think otherwise. She doesn't like playing detective, but soon realizes that catching the real culprit is the only way to clear her name.

Set against a background of intense figure skating competition, A Stroke of Luck is the story of young athletes who overcome very different obstacles in order to succeed, on the rink and off.

"A Stroke of Luck has a strong story line and fair character development, and most of all it is situated in a Canadian setting with a sports theme. In fact, it is just the book to recommend to reluctant readers. It is a good solid choice for reluctant readers who may have sports on their minds."
