Publisher's Summary

At 15, Tex is spirited as a wild mustang and good-natured as a pup. He and his 17-year-old brother Mason have been on their own since Pop left for the summer rodeo tour. Come October, the money has run out and still no Pop. None of this bothers Tex much - until Mason sells Tex's horse to pay the bills. After that things turn sour between the brothers. Tex is constantly getting into trouble, but he resents Mace acting like a parent. Friends like Johnny and his gorgeous sister Jamie help Tex forget his problems. But when it all comes to a head one day, the explosion that follows may cost Tex his life.

S.E. Hinton is loved by teenagers everywhere for her ability to get inside their heads and realistically portray their problems. Like her best-selling novels The Outsiders and Rumble Fish, Tex addresses important YA topics like drugs and teenaged parenthood. Jeff Woodman's expressive narration brings the charming Tex and his moving story vividly to life.

forest gumpy

I love this book I've read it over 50 times so when I saw it on here thought it would be a great addition to my library. needless to say the story is great performance wasn't that bad. but the actor has the habit of giving a Forrest Gump inflection at the end of most words and names and it drove me crazy. made the game main character sound Goofy

Bringing back memories

I remember reading this book when I was younger. What a treat to be able listen to it. It's not my favorite title of S.E Hinton, but still one is able identify, in some way or another, with her beautifully portrayed characters.
