Read full description of the books:
Billy Zeets finds out that his family is losing their house. His dad has been recently hurt and can no longer make the mortgage payments so the bank is foreclosing in 3 months. His older sister tells Billy he needs to do something. I mean don't all older sister's who refuse to get a job to help with anything tell their younger brother's to find a way to keep the house?
I don't much like sister-girls character.
What does dad do? He is depressed so I will give him that. He just starts to want boxes though so he can pack. He comes up with the idea that he can stay at the recovery AA house. WHAT ABOUT THIS 14 YEAR OLD KID!!!!
Thanks be to the gods of young adult books that this kid doesn't let his family being idiots stop him. He actually goes out and does odd jobs. He could have done more but the neighborhood doesn't trust him because, well he has been a bit of a punk.
At the time I was in the seventh grade the second time, like I still gonna be, and I spent most of my time downtown at school and didn't get much news 'bout what happens up our way, 'cause my teachers down there's just a bunch'f nuns and they ain't never had much to tell me, 'cept to say I got stains on my soul.
So he starts working around the neighborhood, and boys start going missing. He starts spying on a weird guy who furnishes drugs for some of the kids and is a bit on the weird side.
Books where the kid takes on the roll of solving crimes usually get on my nerves for the most part. This one actually did a pretty decent job of it. You just knew that no one was going to help Billy.
"Cause he made it plain to me, I'd busted too many windows, stolen too many bikes, soaped too many cars.
Weren't no police for me. I was on my own.
There is lots of cussing and f-bombs in the book too.
Scuse my language.
Even more than I cuss. It got a star added just for that.

Read information about the authorHenry Turner grew up in Baltimore Maryland, in Roland Park, an old neighborhood heralded, on a historical plaque outside its local shopping center, “The oldest planned Garden Suburb in the United States”. He went to public schools. He was always interested in storytelling in one form or another, and as a teenager he started making films with his brother and neighborhood kids.
Henry wound up making five feature films, writing and shooting and cutting them. When his films won awards and attracted some attention he moved to Los Angeles, after getting a call from a movie production company that was looking for scripts. He stayed in L.A. and helped build a fledgling film festival that has since become well-established. He also wrote much freelance entertainment journalism, interviewing well-known filmmakers such as George Lucas, Brian Grazer, Quentin Tarantino, James Cameron, and many others. All along he was writing stories.
During a year spent in Greece he made a total commitment to writing fiction. Returning to Los Angeles, he met his future wife, who encouraged him to study fiction writing with a novelist he admired – John Rechy. Henry stayed in Rechy’s private writing group for a number of years and also studied privately with Hubert Selby. Since that time he and his wife have had a son, Hugo, who is now nine. Henry Turner is now writing a new novel.
