I've read a good number of mafia themed books, including the original Godfather by Puzo and all the prequels and sequels. When you are from the Bronx, this stuff runs in your blood. I've read some other mafia themed books. Two that were particularly bad were Quitting the Mob and Bound By Honor. Neither were quite as painful as this foul tome I am reviewing. This is the worst book I've ever had the misfortune to read.

I loved the ending. Such a twist ending. Can't wait to read the third one.

The only criticism I included in my review of the first Fourth Stall book was that I wondered why we didn’t get to see Mac, the main character, in his life as a student - attending classes, dealing with teachers, and fitting his business life in around his life as a real kid. To my great surprise and delight, The Fourth Stall Part II focuses on exactly those things. At the start of Part II, Mac is approached by a seventh grade girl who claims a teacher named Mr Kjelson keeps giving her detention ...more

Mac is back, and things are bad at his school. There is a huge problem with animal poop in lockers, and there's lots of work for that. The cafeteria food is now delicious, but horribly unhealthy. A girl approaches Mac for help in getting a teacher who seems to have a vendetta against her fired, and the school has the all-important SMARTS tests coming up. Worst of all, the new principal is closing in on Mac's deserted bathroom, and the business is in danger of being shut down. Can Mac save the sc ...more

This book was amazing. I loved it so much! The message in the story is to always confess your mistakes and don't be scared or embarrassed to do it. Also, don't always think about yourself and what would happen to you-think about other people too. Anyway, I've just started The Fourth Stall Part 3 and I think it's going to be good.

Still worried? Check out my review of the first book instead!

Mac had me at hello

Mac's "voice" is a combination of The Godfather, film noir, and contemporary middle school boy that blends perfectly. Mac is such a likable kid. He makes me laugh and even when he's doing less-than-moral things, I'm still rooting for him to win (plus, his heart is in the right place, so that has to count for

The fourth stall part two is so good. It's even better then the first novel. Not only does it have awesome characters: Kitten, Tyrell, a crazy intriguing unpredictable plot, hilarious school plays, Vince's eccentric granny, it has something better, the only thing that was missing from the first book: A girl! And a cool one too.

The title of the book is The Fourth Stall Part 2 by : Chris Rylander. This book falls into the realistic fiction genre because it is not based on a true story but it could completely happen. This book makes me feel like this could happen to my school. This book is about a kid named Mac and his best friend Vince. They run a business in the fourth stall at school. They solves kids problems like getting the new video game, getting test answers e.t.c. One day a girl by the name Trixie Von Parkway ca ...more

Oh Mac, what have you done. My 6th grade crush gets into some deep trouble when he starts looking into fried fatty foods in the cafeteria and rat droppings in the lockers. And then she walks in the door. Trixie von Parkway. He knew she was trouble the minute she walked in and she sets in motion a whole world of events that leaves Mac and Vince reeling at the end.

I'll start from the beginning. Mac and Vince have their business back and it's busier than ever. Things are running smoothly until weir

Even better than the first!

I hear people say all the time, "There are no 'boy books'!" To them, I say, have your son read THE FOURTH STALL! Then, when your book-loving boy asks for more, give him THE FOURTH STALL, PART II. Doesn't get easier than that.
Chris Rylander pulls out all the stops in THE FOURTH STALL, PART II, the follow up to his debut book about a boy who runs a business of favors out of the fourth stall of the East Wing boys' bathroom.

So first I have to say that this book, and the first book in the series, are two of the funniest books I've ever read. I found myself laughing out loud several times as I read Part II (and getting some very funny looks from the people around me).

This book picks up pretty much where the first book left off, with a girl walking into the fourth stall and sending Mac's world spinning. Who is she really? What exactly does she want? Why do middle school girls have to be so darn confusing!? I'm not go

Have you ever been in a problem so bad you need help to get out of it? It is a mystery-nonfiction Mac is a cool guy and it gets even better he solves problems you cant but if he feels sorry for you he might just do a pro-Bono which means he will do it for free. My over all thoughts for this book were good but then again they have some bad ones like " spoiler alert" There is this girl and she is so sneaky so watch out because she might sound nice but she is evil.

Its funny because this all takes

I don't like or don't like this book. I think it's okay, The reason why is because it doesn't keep me interested like the first did, The author explained things way too much about things I didn't even relate to the story like talking about this kid that I like in the one time the story, another reason why the book is just okay is because the author didn't carry on with the story until the end, what I mean by that Is t

I loved the first book, and so did every one of my 5th grade boys who have been reading my one (falling apart) copy all school year. Could not wait to get to the 2nd book-and was not disappointed at all! Perfect for 5th grade boys-and this one could interest the girls as well!

This middle school "caper" book is fun and just a bit over-the-top, as Vince and Mac experience their first barely-recognizable crush on the same girl, channel the dubious talents of an organized bully squad, work with a sixth grade surveillance expert, and take on not only the cafeteria staff, but also the highest school administrators. They have a lucrative business, which they run to earn money for tickets to the first Chicago Cubs playoff game in over seventy years, whenever that day may com ...more

I liked this book a lot because of the illustrations on the front cover. I think it really looks cool. Along with illustrations I like the font decoration for each chapter. I also like the descriptions in this book. It made me feel like I was in the book. For example, when Mac and his friends are in the lunchroom, I feel like I am right next to them eating my lunch. Another reason why I liked this book was because of the plot of the story. It was very well thought out. I also thought that the ch ...more

Mac solves kids' problems at his school. He is extremely successful with his partners Joe and Vince and their employees. Mac has destroyed high school crime boss "Staples" in the previous book (part 1.) Mac, Joe and Vince have been getting lots of new cases and the "suits" (school administration) are starting to get suspicious, especially now that there is a new vice principal brought in to improve the school. Mac and Vince are also getting ready for middle school baseball tryouts. Mac and Vince ...more

In this second book, Mac and Vince are at it again with the beginning of a new year. The year starts off fairly normal until a new administrator comes on the scene. Dr. George enters the school with the attitude that this school is troubled, students aren't per

Mac and Vince are back conducting their business in the fourth stall. But trouble is on the horizon. A disciplinarian is being brought in to bring the school up to snuff. Dr. George is even bringing the SMARTs, standardized tests which will seal the fate of the school for good or bad. The kids come to Mac and ask him to "fix" their scores. With the help of his intrepid crew of Joe, Fred, super-spy Tyrell, Great White, Kitten, and the other bullies, Mac does just that. Unfortunately his "fix" con ...more
