Community Description In the United States, about 30 million children and teens participate in some form of organized sports (Stanford University Medical Center). "Sports Illustrated for Kids" magazines has 6.3 million readers ages 8-15. Yet there is no currently popular sports fiction for tweens from a Christian publisher (STATS). Author Stephen D. Smith developed this series for kids like his own son, now 15, who has experienced most of the highs and lows of school and club athletics."
When troubled thirteen-year-old Luke's dream of becoming a professional surfer seems threatened by some real competition from a girl he barely knows at junior high school, he reacts with angry outbursts that drive his friends away.

Couldnt put this book down Aug 10, 2005
Luke McCoy thinks he is the best surfer but when he is in a competition, he finds out that one of the girls that goes to his school is competing against him. After the competiton, they are both chosen to represent their school. After the competition ends sooner then expected for one of them, the other one realizes that he was really mean to the other one.
I thought it was a good book that showed that you REALLY should think before you fight back to get even. We can really be mean and hurtful to others without even thinking about what could happen. We should talk to God.
