Gabe's lucky number
The Highest Number in the World

Gabe (who hates being called Gabriella) is a new player on The Spirit hockey team. She's always worn number 22, the number of her favorite player Hayley Wickenheiser. Unfortunately, the jersey numbers only go to twenty. Gabe is stuck with number 9. Devastated, Gabe buries her jersey at the bottom of her closet. But a visit from Grandma makes her realize that the number 9 is very special.
A sweet story that warms the heart.
