Benny and Babe

Benny and Babe Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Benny Shaw, the sports-mad, carefree lad whose adventures in Tunisia have convinced him that he can take on the world, suffers a severe blow to his pride when he meets Babe Meara. He may be a wise guy, but she is at least three steps ahead of him. And he's on her territory. Benny is visiting his grandfather in the country for the summer holidays and finds his position as a "townie" makes him the object of much teasing by natives. Babe is the village tomboy, given serious respect by the local tough guys. She runs a thriving business, rescuing the lost lures and flies of visiting fishermen and selling them at a tidy profit. Babe just might consider Benny as her business partner. But things become very complicated, and dangerous, when Furty Howlin wants a slice of the action.

Review:

"This book has it all-an absorbing story, vibrant characters with whom readers will surely identify, and an on-target narrative voice." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Benny, a sports-obsessed, carefree kid, is convinced that he can take on the world—until he spends the summer living with his grandfather and meets resident tomboy and all-around tough-girl Babe Meara. Benny may be a wise guy, but Babe is at least three steps ahead of him. And now he's on her territory. A “townie” visiting for the holidays, Benny must accept the challenges of the country ways head-on. The locals play games by their own rules, and teasing the townie is a favorite pastime. When the serious business of earning money arises, Babe just might consider Benny as her partner, and possibly a friend. But things become very complicated, and dangerous, when the troublesome Furty Howlin wants a slice of the action.
