Tate's younger brother Indy is probably the best skateboarder in Spokane. He's also really smart though he couldn't care less about school. But when Indy clashes with his father one too many times and drops out of school, it's up to Tate to win his brother back from the seedier elements of Spokane. Can Tate convince Indy to come home, finish his high school degree, and return to skating Under the bridge with their crew?

Michael Harmon's fast-paced and highly charged novel captures the enduring bond between brothers and their struggle for survival on the gritty streets of Spokane.

Being a teenager is not always easy and choices are not always black and white. This is a fast paced story of two brothers who just want to hangout and skate. Then the world comes crashing in on them and they have to fight to survive. Tate finds out that it takes more guts to do the right thing while Indy finds out he can reach his full potential without being a sellout.
The voice and style of the writing makes this story exciting, realistic, and captivating. There is strong language and content but it fits the storyline and characters.
