About The Hardest Hit
Eleven-year-old Sam Parker is a hockey player entering the first year in which body checking is allowed. His natural fear of getting hit is temporarily overshadowed by finding out his parents are getting divorced.
Determined to keep them together by being a hockey superstar, Sam instead suffers a bone-crunching check from the school bully in his first game of the season. The resulting pain and fear brings out the worst in Sam as one difficulty after another piles on. Even his best friend, Jill, doesn’t always seem to understand what he’s going through. Sam has to learn how to get up after life knocks you down – both on and off the ice.

Frank Scalise has been writing since he was ten years old. He was in the Army and was a police officer. He writes crime fiction under the name Frank Zafiro.
Frank loves to play and watch hockey (he plays forward now but used to be a goalie). His favorite teams are the Spokane Chiefs (WHL) and the Philadelphia Flyers (NHL). He is terrible at the NHL video game, so he plays on semi-pro.
He has a cat named Pasta, and dog named Richie. Pasta got his name because of the bowl where he likes to sleep. Richie is named after a hockey player. His brother, Wiley, is gone now, but he was named after a bull rider.
