Hucking Cody - A tale of betrayal, jealousy, brotherly love and freeriding
Life has been pretty average for Cody Harrington lately. First, there’s his job at the bike shop where he’s being blamed for not locking the door and causing a burglary. Then there’s his wild brother Zane who’s promised his parents he’s back on the rails, but is he? As for girls, they only exist in his fantasies, and if only he could get through the week without being egged by a carload of rugby heads.
The only time that Cody feels truly free is when he’s flying down bush-lined tracks and hitting stunts on his bike.
But then he falls in love – with a bike and a girl. Does he have it in him to win either of them or are they out of reach? Can a huckster ever really change? The exhilarating, risky world of mountain biking is the backdrop to this engrossing novel about the awkward lows and palm-sweating highs of adolescence, the constraining binds of complicated family relationships, and how if you want to really become who you are, sometimes you have to let go of everything.
