Bucking the Sarge
Luther T. Farrell is the luckiest middle schooler on planet Earth. He's got a driver's license, his own ride, 90 grand in the bank, and more money in his pocket than he can possibly spend. So what's the problem? Well, Luther's mom is a criminal. She's not the mobster type who "rubs out" those who make her angry, she's more of a petty thief, although her actions do hurt others. The trade off for Luther's extra privileges is compromising his morals. How do you stand up for what's right, moral (and legal) when your mom will not allow it? This book is hysterical--more than once I snorted out loud. But, it does delve a tiny bit into the life of a teen male facing puberty which is funny, but sort of gross.
