Inline Skater


by Matt Christopher

A boy must choose between aggressive inline skating or inline hockey — and friendship

Cris Murphy is into aggressive, or “aggro,” inline skating. He loves flying through the air, doing tricks on the halfpipe, and grinding on the rails. But when he has a chance to try inline hockey, he decides to give it a go — much to the disgust of his friend and fellow aggro skater, Max, who thinks inline hockey is for losers. Cris isn’t so sure. Much as he likes the independence of aggro skating, he finds he likes being part of a team, too. But will Max and Cris’s friendship survive if Cris chooses hockey over the halfpipe?
