Skateboard Shakedown

by Lesley Choyce

Gary and his friends spend most of their free time on skateboards. The greater the challenge, the more they like it.

Gary Sutherland lives for skateboarding.

Gary and his friends spend most of their free time on skateboards.  The greater the challenge, the more they like it.  Then they discover the ultimate challenge - an abandoned pool they call the grave.

But then everything falls apart.  The grave is going to be destroyed and a shopping mall constructed in its place.

Gary and his friend Sheila don't think their community needs another needs another shopping mall - so they put together a plan to stop it!
