Reviews

"Janet Berend crushes it yet again with True Vert. A must read for any skate rat in the classroom! She keeps me turning pages with an action-packed book that I can relate to my own life in a lot of ways. Preparing for contests, overcoming fears, big ramps, and girls. I might have to read it again . . . for the fourth time. THANK YOU FOR THE RAD BOOK." --Mitchie Brusco

"Tug your helmet strap tight and focus on the drop, because Janet Eoff Berend's True Vert leaves the coping at breakneck speed, scoops the tail, then just soars. Rising star Josh Lowman has to figure out what, if anything, is more important to him than skating--and what, if anything, is more terrifying than an eight-story mega-ramp. There's a girl (of course), and plenty of fast food and even faster drops. True Vert is--well, it's vert. And it's true."
--Arthur Salm, author of Anyway

"Janet Eoff Berend's second novel, True Vert, is a story that offers an intimate view of the skateboarding world. True Vert's fast-paced, action-packed narrative will engage both avid and reluctant readers, and especially teens interested in skateboarding. It would be an excellent addition to school and classroom libraries."
--Paul Greci, author of Surviving Bear Island
