"There was this time when everything seemed to have come together. And so obviously it was time to go and screw it all up"

Sam is sixteen and a skater. Just so there are no terrible misunderstandings: skating = skateboarding. There's no ice. Life is ticking along nicely for Sam: his mum's got rid of her rubbish boyfriend, he's thinking about college and he's met someone. Alicia.

Then a little accident happens. One with big consequences for someone just finding his way in life. Sam can't run (let alone skate) away from this one. He's a boy facing a man's problems and the question is - has he got what it takes to confront them?

Endnu engang har jeg haft en rigtig dejlig læseoplevelse med Nick Hornbys bøger. Blev meget grebet og berørt af temaet - også selvom det denne gang er en ungdomsbog.
