Wow, have I got a book for you today! It’s called The Fourth Stall, written by Chris Rylander. It’s full of action and friendship and really crazy characters. One of the things I liked about the story was how the main character, a sixth-grader named Mac, was nearly as smart as yours truly. I mean, this guy actually manages to outsmart a legendary high school crime boss with the help of the nine most dangerous bullies in his school.
Of course poor Mac nearly gets killed in the process. I’m sure I wouldn’t have such a hard time. I’m so smart and sneaky I could handle closing down a gambling ring with my tail tied behind my back.
Spike: Are you sure about that? I seem to remember you having a little trouble with Lucy while I was out on surveillance.
Don’t be ridiculous! I’m a secret agent just like Tiger Steele. I could easily handle one little high school crime boss!
Hmph. Now, as I was saying. The Fourth Stall is a really good book. This is what it says inside the flap:
Do you need something? Mac can get it for you. It’s what he does—he and his best friend and business manager, Vince. Their methods might sometimes run afoul of the law, or at least the school code of conduct, but if you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can pay him, Mac is on your side. His office is located in the East Wing boys’ bathroom, fourth stall from the high window. And business is booming.
. . . that’s just the beginning. Mac and Vince soon realize that the trouble with solving everyone else’s problems is that there’s no one left to solve yours.
Oooooh! Told you it was awesome. And guess what? The Fourth Stall, Part II is coming out in February 2012, only one month from now! I can’t wait! And I’m telling you, if you read the first book, you won’t be able to wait, either!
