I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    For Kirsten McKenna, the world is crumbling. Her parents are barely speaking to each other, and her best friend has come under the spell of the school's queen bee, Brianna. Only Kirsten's younger science-geek sister is on her side. Meanwhile, for Walker Jones, the goal is to survive at the new white private school his mom has sent him to because she thinks he's going to screw up like his cousin.

    Amazing how adults can screw up kids lives. Anyway, while I don't believe these characters are 7th graders, I can believe they are teens. And they have certainly been dealt a bad hand in this game. Making the best of things is their way of life and I laughed considerably while they did this. I saw the plot coming long before it happened. If you like this book then you should get the Ariadne Meyers narrated books by
    Sarah Mlynowski. Start with Bras and Broomsticks. Not only will you laugh about being a teen again, but Ariadne Meyers was great.

    I enjoyed Francois Battiste in this book. I'll look for books he has narrated in the future.

    A number of burglaries are happening around town. The access points are small and Friday and Smith think they might be dealing with a juvenile. In each burglary the safe is left alone and the petty cash is taken. A carton of milk is consumed and left at the cash register. The milk carton bandit is driving them all crazy.

    The acquaintances of a few guys out of prison are reporting the robberies and thefts made by ex-con. Claims also include drug use. Not the strongest Dragnet episode but ok. Good sound quality.

    and then the story begins. Frank is hilarious. Sometimes I wonder what happens in police departments as the cases are being worked on. Car stripping is the main story but it follows the escapades of Frank Smith.
