Review- The Consequence of Skating

The Consequence of Skating by Steven Gillis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mickey Greene is an actor trying to get his life back together after collapsing onstage due to drugs. He has lost everything- his career, his money, his beautiful actress girlfriend. Forced to take an overnight security job at an amusement park as part of probation, he becomes obsessed with skating on the ice rink.

I loved this book and it kept me turning the page. I came to like Mickey and the people he meets as he tries to rebuild his life. This book is engaging without following any formula, the story unravels in a natural, realistic way. Steven Gillis had me hoping for Mickey to get back with his ex-girlfriend, even though I knew that was not a good idea.
