About this title


Eric is tired of being a nobody and becomes one of "Marty's Boys," but when Marty's pranks become more and more hostile, it takes a homeless man to help Eric find the courage to break free from the pack.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10-- Sophomore Eric Atwater grapples with peer pressure and his conscience in this realistic first novel. When Marty Benbow enters Emerson High, his swagger and antiestablishment demeanor attract a group of undistinguished boys, including Eric. To maintain his notoriety and leadership, Marty orchestrates escapades that disrupt the school, and he and the boys offer bogus friendship to homeless Ole. However, when Eric makes some independent decisions, he is ostracized by Marty and the other boys. In a climactic moment of coercion, he realizes that Marty's ``disappearing band instrument'' prank is truly a crime. Believable characters, realistic dialogue, and smooth plot foreshadowing render a thought-provoking story of a teenage perpetrator and his accomplices. Readers will recognize Marty as a fellow classmate with an unknown background and a peculiar negative charisma. Eric, however, will be more familiar--unsure, eager to be accepted, and torn between right and wrong. Although the school principal and band director are portrayed as pompous and unsympathetic, the adult wisdom of Eric's frustrated father and tortured Ole prompt Eric to reassess the meaning of friendship and integrity. --Gerry Larson, Chewning Junior High School, Durham, NC
