The four stories in this short (75 p.) hi-lo book are loosely linked (or chained, thus the title), by a book which moves from one story to the next. Although the protagonists are teens, their actions would be more likely seen in pre-teens or younger. One boy steals a book from his favorite teacher as his admittance into the inner circle of a bully, one boy gambles, one has two girlfriends, and a girl reads to her dying father. The stories themselves didn't hold my interes and I was a bit put off by a few sentences in the story about the cheating boy--one chapter ends, "They didn't do much more than kiss, but he did manage to get her bra off." Really? A secondary purchase at best if you are in dire need of hi-low books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
