Publisher's Summary

Best friends Ray and Jose are not your typical teenagers. They've escaped foster care and juvenile detention centers to live on their own together in an abandoned building in Manhattan's Ten Mile River Park. With no use for school or families, street-smart Jose and bookish, introspective Ray have everything they need in each other.

They are closer than brothers until they meet Trini. She's smart, beautiful, and confident, and they both fall for her immediately. As tension creeps into their relationship, Ray must struggle to find an identity separate from Jose and try to envision a future for himself beyond Jose and Ten Mile River.

This is Paul Griffin's first novel, and his spare moving prose and uncanny ear for authentic dialogue is guaranteed to garner many fans.

    "Almost a GREAT Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ten Mile River to be better than the print version?


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really liked when Jose helped Ray out of the freezing water. It showed just how complex their relationship really is. Nornally, I would be thinking "Get away from that kid, Ray", but when you see both sides of their relationship, it's not that easy of a decision.


    Any additional comments?

    I could have easily given this book 5 stars, but I need an ending to really enjoy a book... and a beginning, now that I'm thinking about it. The book will leave you hanging, so you need to know that before you buy it. Also, we never find out how the 2 main characters ended up in the situation they are in (Homeless in New York City). Other than those 2 minor(?) issues, the book was terrific!
