About this product
- DescriptionA funny and poignant tale. . . . Fletcher's vel will resonate with fans of Chris Crutcher and Todd Strasser. -VOYAIn this unsettling, entertaining young adult vel, Ralph Fletcher tells the story of Bobby Steele and his pals, three guys waiting for tenth grade to begin. Out of their boredom, the imaginary Rowan Pohi (that's IHOP backwards) is born. Bobby applies to the prestigious private school Whitestone Prep in Rowan's name, and, amazingly, he's accepted. Eager to escape his public school and his unhappiness at home, Bobby becomes Rowan, hoping the two lives he's living will stay separate forever. For a short, exhilarating time, they do.
