I loved it so much! (it's not surprising that I love it). I wish there was a part lV. But it was a great way to end the series. The story glued your eyes to the pages and blocked out everything else! I recommend this trilogy to anyone.

Mac is back, but he and Vince are laying low after their last escapade. It's hard to stay away from their old life, though-- Staples is back and wants their help contacting his sister who is in foster care, and they are contacted by Jimmy Two-Tone, a new kid who wants to take over their business and give them a cut of the profits. Jimmy's doing a great business, but Mac starts to suspect that Jimmy is creating problems so he can make money solving them. Turns out this is the case, and Jimmy has ...more

This book was a bit better than the previous ones, it built suspense better than the other ones and this one I really felt had similarities from The Godfather with the rival mafias. You would like this book if you enjoy mafia/crime books. A theme in this book is to know when to give up or surrender to fight another day.

I started reading this book because I had decided to read the final book of the Fourth Stall Triology. The book proved to be a very nice read, almost exceeding the past 2 iterations.

What I liked about the book was the honesty and dedication of the characters in the story. For example, when Mac was suffering expulsion due to him being framed by his email address being connected to the attack on the school computers, leaving all of them internally destroyed, his best friend Vince was also accused,

Wonderful book, but the ending felt a bit to real for me. It was almost too real. I get that the book is based off of stuff that truly could've happened, but based on all of the other events, I was expecting a happier ending. In all, it was an amazing book, and the (almost) perfect way to end the series.

The Fourth Stall (Part III) is a fictional book written by Chris Rylander. In the book, Mac thinks he's out of business for good because of what happened last year with the SMARTS. Kids still were coming up to him to ask for help and it was really hard for Mac to say no but he had too. Then one day this guy named Jimmy wants to run Mac's business since the principals were watching Mac 24/7. Mac and Vince both agreed, but little did they know, Jimmy was a trouble maker. Staples was in a Big Broth ...more

Boy, did they end with a good finale.

The Fourth Stall Part III is the final installment of the Fourth Stall, and was is a great way to finish up the series. They completely ditched all the niceties of the second book, it seemed like a different universe from the second book. Unlike its predecessor, this book goes straight to the adventure and action, like the first book. They didn't completely become these folly excuses for detectives like the second book. It went straight to it and did they del

I really liked this series of books, and I'm 72 years young, but I remember some of those years and they weren't pleasant. I was taller than most of the girls, didn't play any sports but loved to read and got heckled a lot. So when Mac opened a business to help with some of the problems, I was in his corner.

This was most definitely the best book out of the whole series. It was funny and it pulled the reader in with suspense. It was a really good book.

I love the drama and the suspense. We can all relate to the book. Chris Rylander really brings out the emotion of you can never be totally out of your business.

First let me say that I currently am having a book three problem. It feels like all my favorite trilogies are all coming to a close at the same time. It's draining. I want to know how they end, but I'm not ready for them to be over! So like a bad blogger I've been avoiding them (it's a coping mechanism, okay?!) All these book threes are stacked up in a nice neat pile, just waiting for me to get up the nerve to open them up. The Fourth Stall sat there for a little while, and of course, when I fi

Middle Grade boys love this series!

I read the synopsis of The Fourth Stall an entire year before the first book came out, and I knew I had to have it. I had a feeling that kids, especially my sons, were going to love it. I was right!

For anyone who is new to this series, allow me to sum it up before heading into my review. Mac and Vince ran a business out of the fourth stall of the boys' bathroom in their elementary school - Mac was the front man, Vince was the numbers guy. They did favors for ki

Mac and Vince have had a successful business since kindergarten, but after getting busted by the school principal last year, they are finished with organized crime. Retired. Out of the game. In fact, they have handed over their business to newcomer Jimmy Two-Tone, who takes care of all the business operations and gives the founders a mere cut of his profits. The only problem is, Staples is back and he needs help getting custody of his little sister, and there is a criminal mastermind at nearby T ...more

I really enjoyed this book, “The Fourth Stall”, by “Chris Rylander”.
This book takes place in your average middle school. This book was about a character named "Christian" his nickname was "Mac". Christian tries to protect his school from danger and other issues. Not only did he care for his school, but also he especially cared for his friends. At the end of the book he was expelled from his school. There was a boy named "Vince", who was Christian's best friend since the 4th grade. They both were

You can read a guest post the author did on my blog here:

Mac and Vince are trying to live a simple, uncomplicated life now that their business is closed. But you know what they say- you can't ever really leave. Being pulled back into business, a new nemesis from another school, and Mac and Vince are in way over their heads. And it's not just them who are in trouble. Their entire school has a target on it and the only way to save everyone is by banding tog

Book three picks up as the founders of the school’s criminal syndicate, Mac and Vince, are entering 7th grade and enjoying retirement (albeit a forced one). Both boys have come to realize that the evil of their ways, though lucrative, was immensely time-consuming and stressful. Mere days into the new shcool year go by before they find themselves embroiled in new and nefarious events: co-opting their defunct business to a new kid at school, dealing with their old nemesis Staples and looking into ...more

This was the best book of the series. The characters were so great, both the old ones and the new ones. Tyrell has gotten better, Vince's grandma is just as funny, if not, better as well, and the new characters are fantastic. Is it just me, or is Jimmy Two-Tone the middle school version of Donald Trump? He's stupid, a terrible businessman, and just plain hilarious. (These are my personal opinions, and they were not meant to offend anyone.) My friend and I love m
