Description

An inspiring story of hope and resiliency 

On April 6, 2018, sixteen people died and thirteen others were injured after a bus taking the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a transport truck in a rural intersection. The tragedy moved millions of people to leave hockey sticks by their front door to show sympathy and support for the Broncos. People from more than eighty countries pledged millions of dollars to families whose relatives had been directly involved in the accident.

Crossroads is the story of Kaleb Dahlgren, a young man who survived the bus crash and faced life after the tragedy with resiliency and positivity. In this chronicle of his time with the Broncos and the loving community of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Dahlgren takes a hard look at his experience of unprecedented loss, but also revels in the overwhelming response and outpouring of love from across Canada and around the world. But this book also goes much deeper, revealing the adversity Dahlgren faced long before his time in Humboldt and his inspiring journey since the accident. 

From a childhood spent learning to live with type 1 diabetes to his remarkable recovery from severe brain trauma that astounded medical professionals, Dahlgren documents a life of perseverance, gratitude and hope in the wake of enormous obstacles and life-altering tragedy.

Powerful and very meaningful for a mother who lost her son nearly seven years ago.

Very powerful. I especially liked Kaleb’s description of feelings about his new reality, his words and feelings resonated with me. I shared similar feelings and reactions following the loss of our son.

I did not like the narrator, he sounded mechanical, no emotion & mispronounced Saskatchewan city names. I wish I had read the book myself.

Narrator ruined it

This is a great story, but couldn’t get through it due to an absolute awful narrator.

Crossroads review

Good story. Did not like the narrator at all. He couldn’t pronounce the key word..Saskatchewan. Very monotone voice. Would have enjoyed Kaleb’s voice much more. I was planning to recommend having the story presented as a school book. However, as the story progressed Kaleb felt the need to throw out the f bomb several times. They could have buzzed that portion just like they do on tv shows. The swear words would eliminate it being read for educational purposes

Excellent book

Kaleb did an amazing job honouring everyone involved in the tragedy. This is an excellent book, however, the reader was terrible. His voice should be used for a cheesy romance novel. Not appropriate for this story at all.

I really enjoyed this! Highly recommend

I remember when this happened and seeing the hockey sticks on the porch. It was really interesting hearing from the perspective of someone on the bus. I would highly recommend this book.

great story, terrible narrator.

the story was good, but i struggled listening to the narrator. A younger narrator would have been more powerful. The narrator was robot like and had no emotion.

Hockey addicts will like

I found this story recently and was intrigued. It was a build-up until the actual accident. it's a story of his life, and he had more than just a tragedy to tell. He's such a positive person and inspiring. There are some parts that I was less interested in but overall well written.

a touching story of brotherhood

I love it, I love how he shared his weaknesses and acknowledged that it is okay to be vulnerable. Painful life-changing event that we all hope to never ever happen to anyone again. I remember how almost everyone in our neighborhood put out hockey sticks when this tragedy happened; and ti know what his parents reaction and how they navigated through all of Kaleb's struggles a a child with diabetes and as a busy teenager to a young adult struggling from TBI who knows that he can no matter what... it's inspiring and touching.

I wish the narrator was better though, he sounded like a robot in many-many parts of the book.

Inspirational

A Well written, heartfelt, motivational true story of a true Canadian hockey player who overcame so much and truly honoured his hockey family; it brought out so many emotions. I remember when this tragedy happened and having had my own boys and now grandsons in hockey, I understand even more of how very close these boys become to each other; I just know your team members would be very proud of all you’ve overcome and your strength through it all, Humboldt strong ❤️
