You know how certain students of yours always loved it when you read Joey Pigza aloud? Well, here’s a great little novel with a similar theme. Clay is a troublemaker, always playing pranks and getting into scrapes with his school mates and his teachers. Clay loves to impress his troublemaker of an older brother, but when his brother gets out of jail, things start to change. Clay, with some serious prodding from his older brother, tries to stay out of trouble, which isn’t as easy as you’d think, especially with the reputation as a troublemaker.
