[The Fourth Stall] Free ß Chris Rylander
Credo del Caminante oE story is just a stringf unbelievable events many The Gravediggers Daughter of them unfunny and violent The adults in the book are notnly absent they are stupid and apparently blind No ne notices the endless fights Although there are some redeeming moments when readers find ut why Staples is the way he is and why Mac s best friend is stealing from him but these are just not enough to counteract the rest Perhaps I was taking it all too seriously but I can t recommend this book I m currently reading The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander it s Resilient (True Brothers MC, onef the funniest books I ve ever picked up and all the chapters crack me up I ve Daddy Demands Vol 5 only gotten to page 29 but I already see the problem forming and things getting intense So far I ve learned that Mac a small six grader has made hiswn little business in the East Wing boys bathroom forth stall from the high window Other kids in middle school bribe him with money and small favors so they can get test cheats fake doctor notes and video games their parents wouldn t allow All has gone well until a crying boy named Fred walks into the stallhe claims that he works for the legendary Staples and when he tried to uit Staples threatened to send people to scare and torture him Now Mac has the duty Judith Viorsts Love and Shrimp of body guarding Fred and to find Staples One thing I like about this book is that the author thinks in the readers perspective he knows when a uestion pops intour mind and he immediately answers it but without giving anything away One thing that I can relate with the character Mac is his appearance when an emergency Pirate or something bad happens he always tries to stay chill and not let anyone get to him For example this actually happened to me before when I lost my favorite watch in second grade I didn t tell anyone and I tried to stay focusedcalm butn the inside I was really panicked and I frantically scanned my eyes around the room for any signs f it Although the things I said before I reason I really like this book is because f the funny characters My favorite Alice In Vampireland (Adult Fairytale Romance Book 1) one is Vince a boy who is book smart and good at statistics and charts he has a weird passion for his grandma andften uotes her like When the coin purse is empty the pocket lint is king All in all I would defiantly rate this book 5 STARS and if you get the chance please read it 45 stars Soooooo good This morning I finished Chris Rylander s first middle reader novel The Fourth Stall I think that authors get better the books they publish but sometimes I wonder if that first book is their best book Authors work so hard to get published that they The Whirligig Issues 3-9 often spend years thinking about writing rewriting and then rewriting that first book It is so hard to get published that I bet to get noticed that first book has to be a knockout Mr Rylander may gon to have a huge career as an author but I
