Hi. This is jmartinlibrary’s 10 year old kid.
So this review isn’t done by some looney forty year old. Not my mother, of course, you weirdo. My mom isn’t anywhere near 40, and she isn’t looney, either.
I loved THE FOURTH STALL by Chris Rylander. It’s great for kids (Ha! Take that, children!) ages 10-14. It’s 314 pages of awesomeness. So… 4 ½ stars. It was really cool, one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time.
Wait…(shuffles through papers) I forgot. The book is about a guy named Mac, “Mom, I’m not doing another book report.” who solves problems. Then he gets into this Hullabaloo (I quote,) with this guy named Staples. And then Staples has a fight with Office Max. But not really. So it’s kind of a “mob” war between Staples and Mac’s groups. It rocks my socks. Read it.
Oh. Wait.I didn’t tell you where the story happens. See, Mac and Staples and all those people aren’t grownups or boring high school kids, either. They are 7th graders. See, Mac takes care of business in the east wing bathroom at his school. And by “takes care of business,” I don’t mean he is making a stink in there. He’s running a totally solid business empire from the 4th Stall.
My mom mostly made me add that last paragraph, FYI. She thought I wasn’t telling you enough about the story. She still doesn’t. Sheesh. Anyway, you should read THE FOURTH STALL, but not in the bathroom because well, that’s just nasty.
Anyway, I’ll make you an offer you can’t resist. Read this book and I’ll promise you’ll love it.
