Clancy’s friends skate through the quiet Sunday streets, while Clancy feels self-conscious and embarrassed that he’s just a beginner. His board stays tucked under his arm; his feet stay firmly on the ground. 

But his friends aren’t giving up on him and Clancy realises the only way forward is to step on his board and try … even if he might fall.

An inspiring and relatable story about self-doubt, courage and the power of friendship.

‘A story that captures the true essences of camaraderie, courage and self-belief … Sunday Skating encapsulates beauty, nostalgia and playfulness for lovers of skating, and for those willing to try. Just like good friends and the power of courage, this book will pick you up when you fall.’ Books+Publishing
