Overview

Growing up in Utah, fourteen-year-old Joey Rail learned to ride before he could walk. He’s tried every two-wheeled sport imaginable, but he’s always come back to BMX freestyle. The skill, patience, and power required for this daring sport suits his personality. Joey is an outdoor enthusiast and loves taking risks. On days that he’s not competing, he’s skinning his knees on the red stone of Slickrock Trail, cliff jumping off the banks of Lake Powell, or rafting down the Red River. But when he's approached by a mysterious member of the Revolution, Joey must make a decision — follow the same old path or take the road less traveled.

Editorial Reviews

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
