Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jennifer M. Miskec
In book 5, the first of the newest four books in Tony Hawk's 900 Revolution series, the youngest members of the Revolution crew are working together without direct supervision. Things are going well at first: Dylan and Amy are scoping out a skate park in Minneapolis, and Joey and Omar are checking out some local caves in St. Paul, both teams hot on the heels of the magical skateboard fragment they have traced to the region. Both teams soon run into trouble, though, when members of the Collective, their evil counterparts, find the teens and attempt to claim the fragment for themselves. Of course the Revolution team obtains the fragment and gets away safely, with just a little help from their elders, but as soon as the team completes one mission, they head right to another: Venice in book 6, Mexico in book 7, and Hawaii in book 8. In each volume, new characters are introduced and old characters resurface, sometimes helping the Revolution crew and sometimes exposing their vulnerabilities. After reading books 5—8, this series seems like NCIS for ?tween boys. With the silver-haired and unflinching director, Eldrick, followed by his loyal, talented, and street-smart team of agents, each book plays out like a new episode: a different villain, a new location, a special agent's skill set highlighted, maybe even a little flirtation between the cast. The series is gratifying for the same reasons the favorite TV drama is gratifying: because it is familiar, part changing story and part single overarching narrative (to get all of the magic fragments of Tony Hawk's busted skateboard). The shift to graphic novel style at the climax in each book also adds to the visual quality of the series. The premise is a bit silly, but the series is still good fun.

Children's Literature - Naomi Milliner
Volume Seven in "Tony Hawk's 900 Revolution" series finds teenagers Dylan Crow, Amy Kestrel, Joey Rail and Omar Grebe enjoying some rare R&R in the Swiss Alps. An especially splendid time is had by Amy and Dylan, aka "Slider," as they verge on romance. Alas, the good times are soon put on hold as the team travels from cold mountains to hot Aztec ruins in Mexico, in search of a Fragment rumored to be there. After braving insufferable heat and torrential rain, they finally reach their destination, only to encounter a bomb, as well as an ambush. Though they all survive the dual attacks, it seems the enemy was tipped off! Accusations fly and suspicion falls on one of the heroes, who is then exiled. As the story ends, the remaining three are placed in lockdown, and left in uncertainty. Despite the annoying, and unlikely, claim that two characters are in possession of "piercing blue eyes" (and a third with just "piercing"), this is basically a well-written and entertaining page-turner. The locales are colorful and exotic, and there is enough action, suspense, danger—and even a hint of romance!—to please fans of the series. Extras include biographies of Eldrick Otus and Tony Hawk, an author Q&A, a climactic chapter in the style of a graphic novel, and a preview of Volume Eight. Reviewer: Naomi Milliner
