Editorial Reviews

NMRLS Youth Services Book Review
"The descriptions of both the setting and the surf action are first rate."
CM Magazine
"A brief, engaging tale of a 16-year-old boy who challenges himself and comes out a winner. Recommended."

My mouth was open. I know that because when I did the face-plant into the bottom of the wave, I was gargling salt water, thinking that maybe I was about to die. The wave drove me deep into the water. I flapped my arms around, thinking that going back up to the surface was a good idea.

But it wasn't. At least not then.

I surfaced just in time to open my eyes and see my airborne surfboard eclipsing the morning sun. And aimed straight for my head. Wham.
