Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
The cover labels this book "Realistic Fiction." The subject, BMX racing, certainly holds appeal for many boys and Maddox deserves credit for trying to deal with the problem of bullying. However, the stilted and repetitive writing is certainly a drawback. The story centers around young teens, Matt Daniels and newcomer Tyler Mason, racing against each other at Evergreen Racetrack. Tyler wins all the races by continually bumping Matt's bike and even physically attacking him. Since Tyler's dad runs the track, nothing is done to right the wrongs being committed. The situation is somewhat remedied when the boys race at Big Pine Racetrack. Mr. Bosch, the owner, disqualifies Tyler and Matt agrees to race for Big Pine. At the end, Matt has won a race, but the issue of future races between the boys as they compete for places at the state championships is left unresolved. Very ordinary black and white illustrations portray action and events. Carelessness in the book's production caused the author biography for the wrong person to be inserted in the back of the book. Unless there is a great need for books for reluctant readers, this is not a recommended purchase.
