Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-These books follow a summer in the life of Kai, a 15-year-old who has been forced to live with his con-artist father and dim-witted stepbrother ever since his mother died in a car accident. In Take Off, Kai arrives in the coastal town of Sun Haven (near New York City), where his father plans to set up yet another T-shirt store to scam tourists. He is immediately drawn to the ocean, which brings back memories, both pleasant and painful, of his surfing experiences in Hawaii, where he lived with his mom. He is eager to hit the waves, but quickly discovers that the best spot in town is off-limits to everyone but the wealthy and arrogant Lucas Frank and his friends. Kai is not only determined to surf Screamers, but to open it up to everyone. In Cut Back, Kai once again stands up to Lucas and his gang by helping his new friend, a teen with Tourette's Syndrome, surf in a local competition. While the abundant surfing lingo and descriptions make these books most appealing to enthusiasts of the sport, there's enough going on to hold the interest of a general audience. The plots are a bit far-fetched, but most of the teen characters are well drawn, while others, like Kai's father and stepbrother, are completely one-dimensional.
