Overview

When you skate in New York, it’s all about getting creative, and fourteen-year-old Dylan Crow considers himself a street artist. You won’t catch him tagging alley walls. Instead, he paints the streets with his board. He wants to be seen grinding rails in Brooklyn, doing ollies at the Chelsea Piers, and launching kickflips in Manhattan. But when Dylan starts running with the wrong crowd, his future quickly becomes a lot less certain . . . until he discovers a new destiny.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Jennifer Miskec
Dylan (aka Slider) is a bit of a slacker and a troublemaker who would rather be skateboarding than sitting in school. The only people who seem to understand his passion are his friend Juliet and his foster brother, Mikey. When Mikey gives him a mysterious package and then goes missing, Slider finds himself mixed up with a gang of boarders who will stop at nothing to get at the package. For the sake of Mikey's safety, Slider would be glad to hand over the package, but its magical contents seem to be intended for Slider. What follows, told in both prose and graphic novel styles, is a skateboarding adventure on the streets of NYC that pulls Slider into a different kind of family. With Tony Hawk's endorsement splashed across the cover and the accurate skateboarding imagery and lingo, this book is clearly directed at a skateboarding-appreciative audience. Still, its style is clear enough that the non-skateboarder will not be confused or bored. A quick read and a popular fantasy—that a misunderstood nobody is actually destined for greatness—this story will have wider appeal than just boarders and boys. It is also important to note that Slider's story is one of four companion narratives to be released this fall that tell the whole story of how the Revolution, a group of boarders saving the world, gets together; Impulse is the second volume.
