Summary
Can EllRay master the moves in time to win his friend back?

EllRay Jakes may be the shortest kid in his class, and he may get into trouble from time to time, but he can always count on his best friends Kevin and Corey. But lately, Kevin has been skateboarding with the meanest boy in class. Could EllRay be losing one of his friends?

Not giving up without a fight, EllRay asks his older neighbor to show him a few jaw-dropping skateboard moves--like ollies and kickflips. EllRay must learn as many tricks as he can before the secret boys-only third grade skate-off. But will it be enough?
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "EllRay Jakes is a small third-grader with big problems. When his best pal Kevin starts socializing with other kids, EllRay decides to take up skateboarding to impress his former friend. Meanwhile, amid the excitement of a class project about fables and folktales, EllRay learns some important lessons about being true to one's self. Fast-paced plotting bolsters a narration that feels genuine using the voice of a rare young African American male protagonist, Warner offers the same keen insight into young people's social relationships that readers have come to expect from EllRay and the whole host of relatable side characters.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2010 Booklist"
