KLIATTOrca Soundings books are published for the reluctant YA reader. This one, about a group of teens obsessed with skateboarding, packs a lot of plot into 100 pages. The narrator, Phil, with his best friend Wally, and his ex-girlfriend Lisa, figures out a way to make money by creating a Web site featuring their skateboarding action—they get paid based on the number of hits on the site because they have a corporate sponsor. This means they make more money if their stunts are more daring. This risk-taking ends in disaster for Wally, because he attempts stunts he isn't ready to make. The three also don't wear safety equipment, such as helmets to protect their heads and pads on their knees and elbow. Great cover art. KLIATT Codes: JS—Recommended for junior and senior high school students. 2004, Orca Soundings, 100p., Ages 12 to 18.
