Rule-breaking, gravity-defying girls who SHRED

Ever wonder what it’s like to fly throughout the air on a BMX bike?

Drop into the world of girls’ freestyle BMX for an action-packed summer road trip adventure.

Karen Avivi was told that a book about girls who ride BMX was “too niche,” but she didn’t listen. SHREDDED is more than a teen girls’ sports book or a BMX biking book; it’s a motivating push-your-limits story for anyone who refuses to be overlooked.


Josie Peters thinks she’ll do anything to qualify for the Ultimate BMX freestyle event the summer before her senior year so she and her friends take off on a summer road trip to hit the qualifying events in the Midwest. Late-night parties, an intimidating mega ramp, and the lure of sponsorships spark friction between the girls. When Josie’s best chance for success depends on her relationship with flashy rider R.T. Torres, she has to decide what she’s trying to win and how much she’ll sacrifice.

Ideal for fans of realistic young adult fiction, SHREDDED features a strong female lead character who goes after what she wants by taking action. Experience the rivalries, rejections, and triumphs of rule-breaking, gravity-defying girls who shred. SHREDDED is now available as an e-book and in paperback from most online booksellers.

San Francisco Book Review gave SHREDDED 5 stars : “…Shredded is the holy grail of young adult fiction. It features a strong female protagonist who openly confronts sexism as a natural part of the story, and her story arc revolves around personal growth. Plus, there’s lots of action and real drama to appeal to everyone. This book is absolutely perfect.”
