My son loved it, as he could relate to the father issues. Plus he has a good Nana. There were parts that weren't relatable, but for the most part, he said it was right on as far as his dad goes. Sad, but true. I am his mom, so obviously he has me ... Thank God!!!! But he has it rough and I am so happy when he finds a book to relate to. I wish he had friends that he could talk to, but maybe he is still just too young to open up to his peers like that yet. Anyway ... for my son to like a book ... it has to be good, as he's a total video game kid, so thanks for this book!!!!

The Chicken Boy was about a boy named Tobin McCauley who didn¿t like school and he was a trouble maker. Tobin¿s Granny dropped hem off at school one day and she was arrested right in front of the school. Tobin was very embarrassed that she was driving drunk. Tobin was mad that it was the first day of school. In the second week of school Tobin got in a fight with a boy in gym class because he making fun of him for not dressing. Tobin didn¿t really care until Cody told him he was a waist of space, and then Tobin was mad. He was suspended for a week. When Cody got out of the Principles office he told Tobin he could come over and mess around with the chickens. Tobin told him he had chickens. Tobin¿s dad was not very happy with him and told him he can not leave the house to go to Granny¿s house again. Tobin didn¿t listen and Tobin told his grandma what had happened at school. He also told her what Cody told him and granny told him to go to his house. I liked the Chicken boy because there were fights and some action in it. It was not a boring book and it kept my attention. I would recommend this book to anyone. It¿s not the hardest book to read and you can read it fast. This book is not part of a series so you can read when ever you want.

This book is amazing! It shows the hardships of life without a mom and how you can deal with it. Tobin learns, however, that he has to give his dad a second chance. I think this book is a must read!

I read the book Chicken boy by: Frances O¿ Roark Dowell. This is about a boy whose name is Tobin McCauley, he gets into a lot of fights and then he gets beat up. He is from a family who has a bad name, his family is all troublemakers. His grandma got into trouble on his 7th grade year of junior high. She drives her car on the sidewalk like a maniac and has her radio blaring. That day Tobin gets into a fight with Cody Peters and in the middle of the fight this boy jumps in and helps Tobin out. Tobin got suspended for one week, the other boy whose name is Henry Otis got a detention, Cody Peters he got a detention too. Henry offered Tobin to come to his house so Tobin would have something to do but Tobin said he had plans which he didn¿t. Tobin went home and did nothing except stay on the couch for one week. I liked this book somewhat I would give this a 4 because I was interested somewhat, and some parts I didn¿t understand.

Like all of Dowell's books, I couldn't put this one down. It was suspenseful and bitersweet (like all of her books)which in my eyes, is a good thing. Tobin is one of those characters I wish was real.

This book was good overall. i had a few issues with it, but i like it alot. I'm in the Newbery Club at school where we try to figure out which book each year will win the newbery award. For example: The Witch's Boy, Wizard Test, Each Little Bird That Sings, Elsewhere, Drift House, etc were all published in 2005. Then we pick from those. Try implimenting the club at your school. Anyway it's a good read and a possible Newbery Contender.
