Sam lives for skating.  That's skateboarding in case you didn't know.  Sam hates it when people call it that though.  Sam's idol is Tony Hawk.  He's read Hawk's book many times and has it practically memorized.  And he talks to Hawk's poster and gets advice straight from the book.  Now don't get me wrong.  Sam's life is pretty good.  His mom was only 16 when she had Sam and now his parents are divorced.  But things are pretty good.  Until Alicia.  The most beautiful girl he has ever seen.  He is enjoying the feeling of being in love.  How could he possibly know how Alicia will change his life?
