Eleven-year-old Sibby Henry liked her old life. Now she’s living in a new town with her nan and pops. On her first day of school she sees a dope skateboard park, but she’s lost her precious board. To make things worse, Freddie, a super skater and a super jerk, dominates the park. Sibby tried to stay chill, but when Freddie gets in the face of her only new friend, Charlie Parker Drysdale, things get too hot for chill. Never one to back down, Sibby accepts when Freddie challenges her to a competition on the halfpipe. She won’t let anything stop her from proving herself.

My Review:

This is a super fun and chill middle grade, skater story, about an eleven-year-old named Sybil Henry! She goes by Sibby, Skateboard Sibby.

Sibby loved skating and hanging out with her friends from school, but when her dad loses his job and she breaks her skateboard, Sibby finds herself starting a new school without either.

At her new school she is faced with bullying and trying to fit in. To do that she needs to prove to herself and her new friends that she can outskate the bully at school.

Thanks to NetGalley, Second Story Press and the author, Clare O’Connor for the advanced copy. This book will be published March 18, 2019. All opinions are my own.
