Editorial Reviews

NMRLS Youth Services Book Review
"The descriptions of both the setting and the surf action are first rate."

"A brief, engaging tale of a 16-year-old boy who challenges himself and comes out a winner. Recommended."
Resource Links
"Cancer, death, the elderly, teen life and conflicts are handled very well in this short novel...a sports novel that is neither too technical nor bogged down in terminology and technique."
