"Kick" is a very interesting experiment. Not only is Myer's writing FOR teens (as he does so well) he was co-authoring WITH a teen. Ross Workman was 13 when the two began to work on this book together. Told in alternating chapters between Sergeant Jerry Brown, a policeman and Kevin Johnson, son of a slain police officer himself, who is in serious trouble. Brown takes Kevin under his wing and ultimately uncovers the entire story--one of a boy trying to help a friend, not a boy gone bad. Though a little rough in spots, it is an inspiring story both between its' covers and in its' authorship.
