The Lovereading4Kids comment
Gripping and funny this novel will appeal to all those who have ever picked up a skateboard and even those who haven't. From the author who brought you High Fidelity and Fever Pitch comes a new novel written for the teenage audience.
Slam by Nick Hornby
Sam is sixteen and a skater. Life is ticking along nicely for Sam: his mum's got rid of her rubbish boyfriend, he's thinking about college and he's met someone. Alicia. Then a little accident happens. Sam can't run away from this one. He's a boy facing a man's problems and the question is - has he got what it takes to confront them?
