On the half pipe with ¿Tony Hawk. By: Matt Christopher. It¿s about Tony Hawk going out on his half pipe and attempting one of his most difficult spins ever. He is always just getting the 540, he¿s trying for the 900.This books reminds me of the time were I was trying to drop in on a skateboard at the skate park and I attempted just like Tony he keep trying to stick the 900 until he got it. So if you like skateboarding or like Tony Hawk, so I think that you would like to read this book. On the half pipe with Tony Hawk.
