Lawn Boy received a gift like no other for his birthday. His grandmother gave him his grandfather's old riding lawnmower. Since he needed anew inner tube for his bicycle he decided to mow a couple of lawns to earn the money. Little did he know when he traded out lawn mowing with a stock broker that his life would change. Here he was only twelve years old and had more money than he knew what to do with and was the sponsor of a boxer. He had accomplished all of this without his parents knowledge. What would happen when they found out?
This was a really fun and quick read. I can't wait for my students to get their hands on it next year.
