Beartown

Beartown is a novel by Fredrik Backman that was published in 2017. The story is set in a small, financially depressed town in Sweden that is obsessed with hockey. The book examines themes of parental control, the cost of keeping secrets, loyalty, family, and regret. The story follows Kevin Erdahl, the star of the local junior hockey team, and his family, who have groomed him obsessively to be a star since childhood. The town's fortunes are tied to the team's successes and failures, and if it cannot attract sponsors for the team, there is no money for the economy. The book explores the complex relationships between the characters and the events that unfold after a teenage girl is left traumatized by rape. Beartown is not just a book about hockey, but rather a story about the people who live for the sport and those who live in spite of it.
