Description-

  • Eleven-year-old Sibby Henry liked her old life. Now she's living in a new town with her nan and pops, and is mad at her dad for messing everything up. On her first day of school, she sees a dope skateboard park. But she can't use it because her precious board is gone forever. To make things worse, Freddie, a super skater and a super jerk, dominates the park. Sibby tries to stay cool, but when Freddie gets in the face of Sibby's friend Charlie Parker Drysdale, things get too hot for chill. Never one to back down, Sibby accepts when Freddie challenges her to a skateboarding competition. She won't let anything stop her from proving herself.

    Sibby, a talented skateboarder, must move after her father loses his job.Moving would be hard enough, but she's broken her skateboard, and without one, she's bereft and seething with frustration and anger at the unwanted changes in her life. Shortly after she arrives in her new home, a bullying skateboarder, Freddie, mocks Sibby and her new almost-friends then challenges her to a skateboarding duel, mostly to embarrass her. If she loses--and she's unwilling to not accept his challenge--she has to give him her cool skateboarding shoes that she won in a competition. After his grandfather dies, the other kids sagely realize that his long illness may account for Freddie's increasingly bad behavior. When the skateboarding challenge finally occurs, Sibby has, predictably, gained some insight into her own feelings and those of the others in her group, enabling her both to skate well and to reach out to Freddie. Rich with skateboarding language, it's the insider view of that culture that sets this effort apart from other tales dealing with bullies. Although Sibby is somewhat three dimensional, other characters lack sufficient development to breathe life into them. Set in Nova Scotia, the book adheres to the white default. Childishly cute cover art makes this appear to be a story for a much younger audience.An average tale that catches some air thanks to a strong, even "super dope," skateboarding theme. (Fiction. 10-12)
