The Juvie Three
by Gordon Korman
Summary: Three juvenile delinquents, Terence, Arjay & Gecko, have been selected by social worker Doug for an alternative detention program allowing them to leave jail and move with him to a halfway house in New York City. When Doug has an accident and ends up in the hospital with amnesia, the boys hatch a plan to cover for him until he can regain his memory. This dangerous escapade might work.....or it might land the three boys right back in juvie.
Thoughts: This is a great book! It's a little more intense than some of Korman's other works, but I really enjoyed it. The characters are genuine, and the plot wais creative. I'd recommend this novel to anyone looking for a realistic story with drama and intrigue.
