Super Fast, Out of Control!

by Louis Sachar

Part of the Marvin Redpost S. Series

Super Fast, Out of Control! Synopsis

Suicide Hill is the ultimate test of bravery. Few have conquered the treacherously steep slope without completely wiping out - or so the legend goes. And rumour has it that Marvin will be taking it on. Only Marvin isn't so sure. His new mountain bike is enormous - he can barely climb up on to it. And changing gears is out of the question! But will he have to ride down Suicide Hill in order to prove himself to his classmates? If he succeeds he will be a hero. If he doesn't, then everyone is about to witness the biggest wipeout ever.

Super Fast, Out of Control! Press Reviews

'Louis Sachar is one of the few masters of American fiction' Independent on Sunday Praise for Holes: 'Magic and hard realism come crashing together. This is an extraordinary and unconventional novel' Observer Praise for Marvin Redpost: Super Fast, Out of Control!: 'How Marvin psychs himself up, and how his parents try both to support him in taking on the challenge, while discouraging him from feeling the need to do it in the first place, is delicately captured in this gripping and tightly written story' Guardian Praise for Sideways Stories from Wayside School: 'Thirty clever, fast-moving stories that describe the bizarre events at Wayside School ... each story is refreshingly different' Guardian
