Honestly, i initial reason of buying this book was because of the title of the novel. It intrigued me, plus secretly i have a thing for skateboarders.
The story was short and sweet. It follows the story of Kelsey, whose parents have gone through a divorce, never mind the fact that they still act like that they are still dating, and her mother up and moves her to California so that she can fulfill her dreams of studying law.
To me the story seemed to be very realistic. Kelsey struggles to find her independence and ward off the rumours that have accumulated due to her scorned ex-boyfriend, who she dumped. Yes, the skater dude. No one dumps a Skater Dude. The Skater Dude dumps you.
Rosemary Graham cooks up a hilarious novel that teaches us how to ignore all the drama and move on with your life by finding something else to do. Kelsey becomes a heroine to all and you just can’t help but want the best for her. Plus she surrounds herself with journalism, something i love too.
