Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen-year-old Brett Gerson is a real-life S.R.K. (spoiled rich kid)-the guy you love to hate. Yep, Bretts pretty much got life in the bag-until his dad is jailed for insider trading, and the family money swirls down the drain.

Brett wishes things could go back to the way they were-until some dirty swimming pools change everything.

Review:

"A compelling narrator will keep readers riveted to this first novel, about a former rich kid who must adjust to life literally 'on the wrong side of the tracks' after his father is arrested for insider trading.' Ages 12-up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
