sarina's Nightmare and Tandem Skateboarding

Can you REALLY have two people on one skateboard?

In Sarina’s Nightmare, there is one scene where two people (OK, kids!) ride a skateboard together.

One rather enterprising reader challenged this scenario; and scoffed at the idea that this was even physically possible.

Well it is, and I have proof.

Video proof! 😀

It even has an official name: Tandem Skateboarding.

Take a look at the videos below – doesn’t that look like amazing fun?!*

*No, the scene in the book is nothing like either of these. It is a fun getaway scene though! You’ll have to read it to find out won’t you!

Praise for Sarina’s Nightmare:

A fast-paced action fantasy with glorious characters, some nail-biting moments and a very satisfying ending…plus a hint that there will be more Dreamer Chronicles to come in the future. And that’s a very good thing! My 10-year-old daughter, an avid and discerning reader, likened this to the Percy Jackson series.

For adults who are reading this book out loud to their kids (and you’ll want to!) it is worth spending a few minutes on the mythical names that you’ll have to get your tongue around – lots of consonants and not quite enough vowels – but that’s standard procedure with this genre and all part of the fun. Highly recommended for boys and girls aged 10 and over.
