The Lovereading4Kids comment
The seventh of 8 great adventures about an ordinary boy with a big heart and a strong desire to work things out even when they’re complicated. Brilliantly constructed with a great moral lightly buried in a genuinely exciting story, here Marvin Redpost faces up to the challenging of cycling down Suicide Hill. In doing so, he learns one of the most important lessons of life: how to face up to things that are scary while at the same time not doing things that are stupid just because others want you to.
Marvin Redpost 7: Super Fast, Out of Control! by Louis Sachar
Suicide Hill is the ultimate test of bravery. Few have conquered the treacherously steep slope without completely wiping out - or so the legend goes. And rumour has it that Marvin will be taking it on. Only Marvin isn't so sure. His new mountain bike is enormous - he can barely climb up on to it. And changing gears is out of the question! But will he have to ride down Suicide Hill in order to prove himself to his classmates? If he succeeds he will be a hero. If he doesn't, then everyone is about to witness the biggest wipeout ever.

'Sideways Stories from Wayside School': 'Thirty clever, fast-moving stories that describe the bizarre events at Wayside School ... each story is refreshingly different'
