OK, I admit it.  I don't know anything about skateboarding.  But I did learn a lot from this book!  Phil and Wally love skateboarding and they love landing tricks.  When they meet THE Bam Bam, they learn a lot about how things you see on video are different from what happens in real life.  Like the famous shot of Tony Hawk doing the 900.  He worked on that trick for 13 years before he made it!!!  So Phil gets an idea.  How about videotaping Phil, Wally and Lisa and having their own web site?  If they can get sponsors, they can make money.  Will it work?
SUBJECTS:    Skateboarding -- Fiction.
