The Fourth Stall

in Essential Reads

Author: Chris Rylander
Review by Essentialmom
An interesting twist on the topic of bullying — you cheer for Mac and Vince who are a modern day mafia — but one that takes care of people’s problems.  They exact a fee, and sometimes run afoul of the school rules, but their hearts are in the right place when it comes to protecting kids, doing people favors, and trying to run their school from a kids’ point of view.  Questions of allegiance, bending the rules, and friendship all come to play as well as life choices, gray areas, and interesting interpersonal consequences and challenges…all while making the reader laugh along with the snarky author’s voice.  A great Midde School read.
Rating 3 out of 5
