    This has to be one of my harder reviews to write in a long time. I want to give the book 3 stars, but that would be a disservice not only to the author, but to the intended audience. I am not the audience this book is for, so I had to sit back, mull it over and after thinking about the teen boys and girls who will be reading this book, I find that the author has really nailed it on the head.This book is considered dystopia, but honestly, it's more about the hardcore teen skaters, their love for the sport, the search for the perfect park and how family is more than blood alone. Yes, there is a catastrophic event, which unfortunately the author builds up but that story itself falls flat. Get over that part and the reader will see the Ollie's, the half-pipes,etc and feel the camaraderie of the skaters.The author places popular songs, movies and other pop culture items in this book and they fit perfectly in their place. Readers years from now will not be lost on references, because the author picked classics that flow over generations and feel just as special with the next. Any reader, no matter if you are in the skate culture or not, will be able to follow along.Back to the dystopia story-line. This is where the book itself is weak. There is no real who, what, where or why covered. There are some areas put in context, but not to the depth that there should be. Also, the fact that these group got from point A to wherever their point B is without much interference from other individuals is a bit of a stretch. The group detailed hardly ever sees other people unless it's at the skate refuges and unless there was a huge nuclear disaster, they would have had to deal with a whole lot more people on the road and in the towns. Also, the end wraps up way to happily for all. Maybe the author didn't want to scare his readers, but there was a lack of believability to the book throughout the entirety of it.I recommend this book to any teen looking for an action-adventure read. They can be skaters themselves or just have an interest in the subject. The book is told from a single POV, but the author provides enough insight to the other characters that it almost feels like multiple POV's at times. This book is for teens of any genre, cultural background and economic background. There's no romance, no sex, nothing that gets in the way of the ultimate theme that friends have each others backs through the good and the bad times.

    Callum and his skater buddies are enjoying their summer vacation in seaside California - skating at old favorite locations and on the lookout for new ones, and looking forward to heading off to skate camp. Their good times are cut short when a close friend dies in a car accident. The boys mourn, then go to skate camp in the foothills of central California. There they have a fantastic time learning new tricks with some pro skaters, meeting new people and solidifying old friendships.And then all hell breaks loose.Bombs explode over many American cities, slowly moving across the country until California is hit, as well. Callum and his friends can't reach their parents or their friends left at home, and so they take it upon themselves to sneak away from the evacuation bus and head out on their own.The boys skate down the foothills and make their way north toward supposed safety. They meet new people, some scary and some helpful, along with way. They even reunite with old friends and family in random cities and refugee camps. Will Callum and his buds find their families in the government refugee camps in Northern Cali? Check out K.V. Flynn's ON THE MOVE, the first book in a post-apocalyptic series, to find out.While the premise was what drew me to this title, the execution is seriously lacking. I was excited to read about a group of teen boys on skateboards riding for their lives in a post-apocalyptic California!Unfortunately, the skater jargon and endless descriptions of skating tricks really threw me off. The boys have exciting adventures, but the likelihood of their using skateboards to do things like ride down mountains, escape government refugee camps, and travel hundreds of miles is just not believable.The boys themselves were diverse and interesting - they ranged from age 10 to 18. Some of the boys came from rich backgrounds, while others were poor, and one even grew up on a Native American reservation with his father and sister. I really liked the interesting cast of characters, but they went through very little development and weren't enough to keep me interested.ON THE MOVE will appeal to a very small subset of teen readers. I would recommend it to boys who are obsessed with skating and looking for a book they can relate to.

    This is a great book for young people who enjoy skating. I bought several copies to use in my classroom, (high school) and my students enjoyed it, for the most part. There were some spots where the action was a bit slow moving. But overall, the story was enjoyable. I think a book that catches a young person's interest and gets him reading, provided that the material is appropriate for young kids (as this is) is something that should be supported. There is only one instance of strong language that I remember, and nothing too shocking for the situation (the s*** word). The story also included some real life places that kids familiar with California would recognize. My students aren't Californians, but they still enjoyed the story. The plot was great, and the protagonist was a strong, admirable character.

    This book was a joy-ride! I knew very little about skate boarding before I read this book, but now feel completely informed as to its mechanics and particular culture! I reveled in the book's teen-speak language, which is hip, on-trend, and quick as lightning. The story hits on the bonds of friendship, teamwork, perseverance, and commitment to family. It is cleverly crafted, and roped me in from page one. I know it'll do the same for teens and pre-teens, as the characters are unique and well developed, and the spot-on references to popular culture lend a trustworthy, authentic air to this wildly creative story that speaks of teens finding their way in a chaotic world.

    Flynn has a great touch for the teen jargon around skateboarding and cyber -talk, too!

    We love this author. This story got my nephew glued to his Mom's iPad for hours. A captive read for your favorite skateboarder.

    Flynn has captured the skate culture in this clever adventure!
