Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Miranda McClain
Josh and Kenzie are excited to start honing their beach sports skills this summer at Playa Victoria and the excitement is amplified when they learn their school, Victory School for sports all stars, will be competing a with students from the Champions School in a tournament for the Playa Victoria Cup. However, their enthusiasm is dampened when they learn they must compete in a sport they have never tried before. They both decide to try wakeboarding and after Kenzie takes her turn at what turns out to be much more difficult than anticipated it's time for Josh to try. Josh turns out to be a natural wakeboarder but not nearly as good as Hannah, the competition from Champions School. Hannah's skill seems too much to believe she's never tried the sport until the pair finds out she's used to snowboarding. After a close competition Josh pulls off a difficult move to win the cup for his team. The plot is predictable but fun. The fast pace, short chapters, and colorful Manga style illustrations in the Victory School Superstars books by Sports Illustrated Kids will attract reluctant readers and the glossary in the back helps with vocabulary. There is even information on the sport of wakeboarding at the back for readers who would like to learn more. Reviewer: Miranda McClain
