You know how sometimes it takes a while to get into a book and you’re not sure if it’s going to get better but you figure you might as well stick with it a little longer to see? Well, reading The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander is NOTHING like that!
As soon as I met Mac on the very first page, I was hooked. Mac is no ordinary middle schooler; he’s like the godfather amongst his classmates — a fixer, a businessman who will help you out… for a price. Or a favor. And he runs his operation out of the fourth stall of a school bathroom — hence the book’s title. Are you a fan of online casino slots? then you must check this out! Enjoy!
When you first observe Mac doing his thing, everything is going great for him and his best friend (and business partner), Vince. But soon, Mac is a wanted man rather than being the one in charge — thanks to a little kid who comes to Mac for protection from an older sleazeball named Staples. (Why? I dunno.) Staples runs his own shadier and more violent operation in gambling and debt collection, and this spells a whole world of trouble for Mac and his associates.
How can Mac beat Staples and get back on top? Well, he has a plan, but let’s just say things get a whole lot worse before they get better… To find out how Mac involves the school bullies, sniffs out a rat, gets into a huge fight with Vince, and even entertains the idea of joining Staples’ crew — well, obviously you’ll just have to read the book!
Of course, if you’ve already read the book, leave a comment with your thoughts! I want to hear how you liked it, and your favorite parts!
