Description

14-year-old Patrick and his mother leave their small town for the city. Out of boredom and frustration, he steals a pair of headphones. When he's caught, the police officer, Constable Jack, is willing to get the charges dropped if Patrick trains with him in parkour for twelve weeks.

While Patrick trains extra hard he develops a crush on Parker and a rivalry with Jayden. When the tension with Jayden reaches new heights, Constable Jack decides they'll settle the score in a competition. But they aren't just fighting for best individual — there's also the prize for best club at stake. That means Patrick and Jayden will have to learn to work together.

Editorial Reviews

"A great book for middle school aged [readers who are looking for a fast pace, action-packed book. Parents will love this book for the positive message the story sends to young readers."

— NetGalley

"This is a fast-paced book with a lot of good action and a positive message ... I found it a fast and entertaining read. My attention never lagged and it was a great length for the age group."

— NetGalley

"As with other books in the Lorimer Sports Stories series, a lot of technical information about parkour is conveyed in this novel . . . Parkour is the perfect training for Patrick, who needs to literally and figuratively find the best way to negotiate his path in life."
