Aboriginal snowboarder Jax has it made. He's in his last year at Podium Sports Academy and he's got a sponsorship from a big snowboarding company in the bag. But then his older brother, always the troublemaker in the family, shows up in Calgary unexpectedly. Suddenly Jax's sponsorship is threatened when the police come asking questions about a break-in at the house where he lives. He wants to help his brother, but will it cost him his future as a professional boarder?

Awards

Commended - One of the Year's Best for 2013 - Resource Links - 2013

"The series is designed to connect with teens by dramatically leading them through the possibilities their choices create and offering wholesome suggestions for successful outcomes. Author Lorna Schultz Nicholson achieves this without ever appearing to be preaching to the reader. Big Air is highly recommended for any teens, and the series should be available in all middle years school libraries." Highly Recommended

- Sherry Faller CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"What gives this story its depth is the abiding hatred the prejudiced policeman holds for Jax. Jax sees just how easy it is for dangerous stereotypes to rule the day." Rated E: excellent, enduring, everyone should read it!
