Overview

Alex, still learning to ride a skateboard, is disarmingly witty, naughty and sweet natured. He is the type of boy who kisses his mother meaningfully on the cheek before bedtime and enjoys cracking jokes with his mates down at the skate park.

This is a fast-paced school adventure story that perfectly captures the essence of puberty and first love.

Pat Flynn

Pat Flynn grew up running around an old dairy farm in Queensland before moving to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra on a tennis scholarship. After playing and coaching on the professional circuit he became a teacher, where his observations of young people – their interests and stories – led to him writing a series about a teenage skateboarder called Alex Jackson. Pat likes to start the day with a surf and end it walking along the beach with his wife and son. He also enjoys the occasional game of tennis. Pat now writes full time and lives on the Sunshine Coast.
