Beartown is a fictional novel that centers around a small town whose citizens live for hockey. The story follows the perspective of different people throughout the town, and their thoughts and actions when a shockingly tragic event strikes their community. I would highly recommend this book, as it carries many different themes and stories within it. It addresses hard topics in an honest and insightful way. It has a bit of a slow start, but ends up completely captivating and gripping you. This is an incredible read, but it does include descriptive depictions of sexual assault, which can be triggering to some.
