Snowboard Maverick by Matt Christopher was a great book that was full of action. The main character is a kid who hated sports entil he saw some people skateboarding. He tries it and loves it. When it gets snowed out he can¿t skateboard. During the winter he goes with his friends snowboarding then gets in love with snowboarding. The point the autor is trying to get to you is to have fun with your friends and be brave. Tis book is my favorite book it is so fun to read and if you like snowboarding this would be a good book. So if you want an action book about bravery go to the library and buy or checkout Snowboard Mavrick.

Snowboard Maverick was a good book. It was a good book because it had many of my interests and good description. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes extreme sports. This book is about a skateboarding kid named Dennis who has no activities to do in the winter. All of his friends snowboard but he doesnt have enough money. At christmas time his friends and parents pool their money to buy him a new snowboard. At first he is not very good but improves greatly over the winter. He has a school bully who challenges him at a harder trail on the mountain then he is ready for and Dennis accepts. He and his friends train every chance they get.When the race begins he is incredibly nervous. At the end................He Wins. He isnt bullied anymore andhas great new friends.This is a great book.
