~A back-to-school read~

Fourth StallThe Godfather font on the cover of this book made me chuckle and turned out to be a good predictor of the amusing twist this tale takes on the godfather role, as embodied by a good-hearted but capitalistic sixth-grader named Mac. Mac is the school problem-solver, running a booming business with his friend Vince out of the fourth stall in the East Wing bathroom. The trouble is, sometimes problem-solvers have their own problems.

A strong plot, likable hero, and despicable bullies and make this a solid reality-based adventure-and-friendship read for boys, particularly those sick of the vampire/werewolf trend.
