Description

Philip lives for skateboarding. School is merely the break between trying to land a difficult jump and outrunning the security guards. When he and his best friend Wally meet a professional skateboarder who videotapes himself for his website, Philip thinks they can do it too—and make money at the same time. When they start getting hits on their website—and making money—they start to feel the pressure to do more and more dangerous stunts.

Also available in Spanish or French.

Editorial Reviews

“A well-structured, briskly paced, realistic novel, with more ‘showing’ than ‘telling’ and no moralizing...Grind is a well-written work of literature that subtly shows that a weakness can also be a strength...Recommended.”

— CM Magazine

"Eric Walters creates characters that are believable and multi-dimensional... Highly recommended."

— Canadian Book Review Annual

"I would recommend this to my juniors without reservation. Walters does a nice job of maintaining interest while using a subtle, low-level vocabulary."

— SouthWestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
