Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen-year-old Brett Gerson is the kind of kid you love to hate: smug, arrogant, and filthy rich. When his dad is jailed for insider trading, Brett loses the mansion, the Mercedes, and his beloved stereo--and is forced to take a summer job assisting the man who used to clean his family's swimming pool. Told in the first person and set in a fictional California town, Pool Boy marks the debut of a gifted writer for young adults--and an almost equally engaging and infuriating anti-hero.

Synopsis:

A wealthy boy's life changes drastically when his father is jailed for insider trading.
