This e-book version offered through Tumblereadables provides a welcome alternative format to the traditional Orca Soundings chapter books. As an e-book, each chapter is broken up into small section over 5-10 pages, making the task of reading a novel much less daunting and giving the reader the immediate satisfaction of accomplishment. No audio track is provided, but there are many useful features such as a table of contents for easy navigation, bookmarking capability, and additional options to customize the text according to font, size, colour, and spacing. Identified as a high interest / low level vocabulary novel, the story follows a pattern of short dialogues between the characters, with limited narrative - which reads exceptionally well in the e-book format. Students will connect with the skateboard lingo such as grind, fakie, 360s, and descriptions of various skateboarding manoeuvres, but more savvy readers may find some of the scenerios and the conclusion a little bland. Home access available with a public library card or school library subscription. ( )
