Grounded for Good by Dawn Daria, Christopher Bordenca

Sleeping late. Hanging with friends. Freedom.

Ah, Summer...

Derek Dawson couldn't wait to finish middle school. Unfortunately, a heroic attempt to impress his classmates on the last bus ride home sends him right back to the principal's office. He's been in trouble before, but nothing like this.

Working for free. Musty books. Grounded.
Summer Ruined!

Derek's summer leaves him stuck at home, working at the family store, and "volunteering" at a library. Torture, until he meets a colorful crew of kids in the next town that help him uncover his hidden talents. Will Derek finally be able to prove to his parents that he's more than just a trouble-maker?

I've never fit in before. Football's not my thing, video games aren't my thing.
But I've found my thing.

This is a good read for tweens to adults. A lot of small messages about the value of family, friendship, responsibility and taking chances. Great summer read for kids as well.

Many tweens and teens will identify with the emotions and problems of the young hero. It's all about growing up and finding your dream. Great Reead!
