    it was alright easy read

    i believe the book had a good plot but could have used something else to help it reach its full potential. the beggining started off good but the ending was awful i wish the author would have done something different with the ending the book couldve really used it. But all around the book was alright.Good for some cheap laughs. All in all i liked the book minus the ending

    I was very excited to read this after i read all the rave reviews but i gotta be honest, it just wasnt that good. I hated the ending too! I hate wasting time and money on books that are just ok at best.

    I felt that this book had its pros and its cons, therefore i rat

    I felt that this book had its pros and its cons, therefore i rated it "good" and gave it 3 stars.

    When I first began reading the novel, I loved it. It started off with some action which always attracts attention, but then the novel got into some good background information of the characters. The plot development seemed very intriguing, and I was looking forward to a major turn of events that would lead the boys into some serious trouble. However, this never really happened. There are about 20-30 pages that deal with some action filled situations, but other than that, the book was very repetitive. I understand that repetition can be used in a positive way, but this was much more than that in my opinion, it got annoying. On the bright side, I loved the dialogue between the characters, I loved the tone that Paul Griffin wrote the novel in, and I loved the relationship Paul Griffin set up between the best friends, Jose and Ray. These aspects of the novel are what helped me keep reading and stay interested. The tone was very modern, which made it very easy for a teenager, like myself, to read.

    When I picked up this book and decided to read it, I was expecting an action packed novel that really looked deep inside the relationship between two best friends. I also knew that the boys might have lived a bit of a different lifestyle than I do. I was expecting some crime and misbehavior that may help me look at life in a different perspective. I was curious to see what different lifestyles there are out there, and how those kids might live their lives. The book satisfied these wants, with the exception of the action, that was scarce.

    All in all, it is a solid book. I recommend it to readers--teens in particular--who are interested in identity, finding yourself, relationships, and maybe want to see what kind of lives other people might be living.

    Live in the Bronx!

    Wow, you're immediately immersed and feeling as though you're hanging with these kids. If you've never been to the Bronx, no worries, Mr Griffin paints a vivid picture, and you live it, feel it, see it! Your emotions get tossed around a bit.... real life can hurt, but what a debut book, can't wait for his next!

    I loved this book

    I've already read Ten Mile River twice -- and I loved it. The characters are authentic and the writing is amazing. As a counselor for teens and as someone who has worked in urban settings with teens who are 'in the system' (as the author has), there were so many times when I just smiled and knew how achingly realistic this book is. There is a world out there that so many people have never known about -- and in that world there is a court system that unfortunately has failed so many of our kids. Ten Mile River not only describes the realities of living on the streets but does so with humanity and hope. I already recommended this book to our town librarian who is always looking for great YA literature.

    My son loved it.

    This is a very realistic picture of life in the city, both painful and tender. I enjoyed it from the first page and so did my teenage son.

    I caught my breath!

    I love your book!  The dialogue takes a little getting used to, but once I entered Ray's and Jose's world, I felt like I could completely relate...reading this book was like watching a movie that you don't want to end.  I caught my breath twice and you leave me wanting to know...where is Ray now!?

    I was really moved

    I bought this book for my younger brother to try to get him into reading for the summer after reading a review about it on the Publisher's Weekly website and I always read the books first to make sure they're okay for him. I was completely blown away. I made him read it and he came to me and thanked me for the first time I can remember. He really related to it and these guys and it provided me with one of the best conversations I've ever had with my brother. So if the author is reading these, thank you.

    Instant Classic!

    A blessings is what I label 'Ten Mile River'. I could not put it down and once I finished I struggled with being selfish and reading it again right away, or sharing the wealth with my younger brother. I have not seen the book since (smiles). Please read, share, discuss, rinse and repeat!

    A great read

    This novel immerses you into the fascinating and crazy world that Jose and Ray inhabit. Ray's character feels so real, you immediately empathize and start rooting for him. I made the mistake of starting it late one night and couldn't wait to finish work the next day to get back to it and find out what happened.

    More than just a summer's read

    A gem of a small book that quickly catapults you into the complicated lives and relationships of two homeless boys, the world they have created for themselves, their hopes, fears,the relationships they seek. Amazing how such a vibrant world is encompassed in such little space. YOu can't put it down and before you know it, it's over.

    Great read for all ages, not just young adult

    From the first chapter, i was fully engaged in who these two boys were. Ray and Jose will make you laugh and cry...their characters are so full of life that you almost forget that they are fictional characters. The writing is simple yet full of emotion and detail. I loved this book...it's a great read not only for young adults but for old adults as well. :) I can see this book getting great word of mouth.
