Skateboard Sibby

Skateboard Sibby


By Clare O’Connor


Super skateboarder Sibby Henry won’t let the loss of her board defeat her.

Eleven-year-old Sibby Henry liked her old life. Now she's living in a new town with her Nan and Pops. On her first day of school, she sees a dope skateboard park, but she’s lost her precious board. To make things worse, Freddie, a super skater and a super jerk, dominates the park. Sibby tries to stay chill but when Freddie gets in the face of her only new friend, Charlie Parker Drysdale, things get too hot for chill. Never one to back down, when Freddie challenges Sibby to a competition on the half pipe, Sibby accepts. She won’t let anything stop her from proving herself.
