Thanks to James Lorimer & Company for giving me access to this arc through netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

First i have to explain that i rated this book considering it was written for young teens. It's a very good read for kids 12 and over and there's a lot of valuable life lessons in it. And the fact that it was in the parkour world was a good bonus, added action in the storyline!

There's a lot of kids like Martin, kids who think they are stupid because they can't live up to the expectations of their parent or simply because they can't get good grades and there's a lot of them who are misdiagnosed or no diagnosed at all. Maybe books like this one can help them get helped or at least help them believe in themself. It was a really great story about trying to believe in yourself when you think that you're a failure and also about discovering how far you can push yourself and what you're willing to do to continue doing what you love.
