The Trail Rules earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval

In Melanie Hooyenga’s The Trail Rules, sixteen-year-old Mike (Mikayla) decides to give mountain biking a try, and in the process, she finds a group of people with whom she feels a strong connection.  In this, the second installment of The Rules Series, we see some of the same characters from the first book, but with Mike taking center-stage.  Hooyenga continues to deliver an exciting story with page-turning plots and sub-plots and an underlying theme of genuine female characters who are likeably flawed.  The mountain biking elements in this story helps give this book substance as readers are introduced to the thrilling aspects of the sport.  Mike has a series of personal growth experiences as she works on developing her biking skills while also addressing her own insecurities.  This book will resonate with YA audiences and is recommended for home and school libraries and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
