Ricky Perez has always dreamed of being accepted into one of the top art and design schools in New York. He has a passion for drawing, and he desperately wants to become a comic book artist. Yet, despite his passion, his mother has other ideas. She doesn’t want her son to be wasting time on his scribbles; she wants him to focus on his academia so that he will be accepted into what she considers to be a ‘proper’ school.

Super Story

Tomo Saves the Day is a fun read. You'll find yourself rooting for Ricky throughout all the obstacles standing in the way of his dream. Some are quite comical, yet all are realistic trials of teens.
I was drawn in starting with the first paragraph where mother is called to the principal's office.
This author gets into the head of teenage Ricky. This a a story you and your teen will enjoy. I can see this opening a family discussion around the dinner table.

Fun story!

A short but sweet story with a lot of heart. I’m looking forward to more work from this new and talented author.

Good! Ricky Perez is a 14 year-old artist who dreams of going to Art and Design High School. A sudden loss leaves him frustrated. But could a chance encounter change it all? A good short story with a bit of teenage angst related to the pursuit of one's dream.

Ricky reflects: "...he was sick of academics and really wanted to go to art school" (kindle p. 3).
