Overview

Fourteen-year-old Amy Kestrel is a powder pig. Often hidden beneath five layers of hoodies, this bleach-blonde, CO ski bum is tough to spot on the street. However, get her on the slopes, and she’s hard to miss. Shredding since the age of three, Amy’s well-to-do parents support her ambitions both emotionally and financially. She’s always got the latest and greatest gear — custom boards, top-of-the-line boots, and killer shades. But when a strange group of masked men threaten her favorite mountain, she'll need every ounce of the one thing she lacks . . . confidence.

VOYA - Jennifer M. Miskec
In Tony Hawk's 900 Revolution series, Omar is a beach boy skateboarder from sunny California; Dylan prefers the challenges of city skating in NYC. Amy shreds the mountains of Colorado on her snowboard; Joey rides BMX in the Utah desert. Though these four teenagers are from different locations and walks of life, all four have something in common: They conduct the energy of a magical skateboard. The legend goes that when skateboarder Tony Hawk landed the first ever 900, his dedication and skill imbued his skateboard with a magical energy that caused it to explode into energized bits. When in possession of a fragment, a chosen few can actually channel the energy to take their talents to extreme new levels. Together, the chosen make up a covert group called The Revolution that work to protect the power and keep it away from those who might use the magic to destroy the world. n each of the first volumes of the series, we meet one of the chosen—first Omar in Volume 1, then Dylan in Volume 2, and Amy and Joey in Volumes 3 and 4—along with those who identify and organize the chosen. Each young teen's story is a bit different, with different but equally rich sport and location imagery. The series is clearly directed at an audience who loves fast-paced action stories and extreme sports, but the descriptions are such that non-enthusiasts will not be confused or bored. A quick and action-packed read, this prose and graphic novel hybrid series is a sure thing for reluctant readers. (Tony Hawk's 900 Revolution) Reviewer: Jennifer M. Miskec
