Junior Review: Surf Riders Club: Ava's Big Move

I loved this story about a city girl called Ava who moves to a beach town. At the beginning she is lonely because she has left her best friend in the city, but she makes new friends through surfing. Ava starts off learning to surf in the beginners' group with some other girls. They all work together to get better. 

This story has a lot of suspense and action and even some blood. I wanted to keep turning the pages and reading after Mum told me to turn off my light. I read the whole book in two days because it was so good and exciting.  I have now read it three times!!! I love it so much! I really want to get all the stories in the Surf Riders Club!

I related to the story because I live in a beach town and love surfing.  Ava gets to learn to surf through lessons at school. I'm really lucky because I get to do this too.

I think this story would be enjoyed by girls who like surfing. But I also think if you have never tried surfing then after reading this book you would want to give it a try. This story has a message about friendships and helping friends. Also, if you put your mind to anything, you can do it with lots of practise, just like Ava does.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes action packed books that are exciting to read.
