    2. I've been reading Ray Viillerreal's books because I want to offer my students more variety. So, this one is my favorite.It was an emotional roller coaster. At first I didn't like the hero.

    4. Rawley saves a young woman from drowning and istantly becomes a hero. He has real problems and learns from his mistakes. This is no Henry Huggins, but still a nice juvenile read set in Dallas with likable characters. I enjoyed reading this local author and will look for more of his books for my son.

    6. A great YA realistic fiction story that guys will especially like. It has action, jocks, geeks, algebra, friendship, and family drama.
