Skate Park Challenge by Anastasia Suen (writing as Jake Maddox). A skateboarding novel. After Nick is injured skateboarding, he is forced to take a break from his daily visits to the skate park. He is determined to heal in time for the big competition, especially because he wants to beat Brandon, the bully responsible for his injury. With a little practice, Nick hopes he’ll be able to skate killer half-pipes and thin rails just like the pros. If he can pull off every move, he’s sure to end up at the top of the scoreboard.

Library Media Connection - Sandy Scroggs

At the time of review, six chapter books comprised the sports character education collection written under the pen name of Jake Maddox for male reluctant readers. As I read the stories, I could hear the fourth grade students assign a score for the writing style as two out of four. The range of reading levels in the series is 1.1 to 2.8. Each book in the series contains a glossary, further information, discussion questions, writing prompts, and Internet sites. Each story involves a boy who eventually succeeds at his given sport of hockey, basketball, BMX, football, baseball, or skateboarding. Additional Selection
