    " Thrill, Suspence, fun, fear, excitement, and many more can be found in Gordon Kormans "The Juvie Three". Gordon Korman is famous for many books that you may be familiar with such as: Schooled, Born to Rock, Son of the Mob, Son of the Mob: Hollywood Hustle, and many more. If you have read any of his books you would know that he is a very good writter. He puts a lot of thought into what goes into his books. When you read "The Juvie Three" you relize that. At the begining of the book it just draws you in and you don't want to close it. It feels like by the time you open up the book and you start reading page one, your already on chapter two. The book is fast and it deals with kids like today. This book can be prepared to today and im pretty sure everyone can see it. When three kids that never knew eachother meet by Douglas Healy they soon become very close. Healy has givin them an offer to get out of juvie and to be out in the real world with all the other kids. Healy has been trying to get approval for an experiment for the juvie kids. Showing that if you take a couple kids and bring them out to the real world with everyone else they might be able to learn to controll themselves. Healy picks three kids, each from a different place, and gives this offer to them. They have to follow all the rules or they will all be sent back to juvie and the experiment is off. Healy picks Gecko, who was put in juvie for being a get away driver, helping with a robbery, and driver underliscenced. Arjay who was convicted of killing a man, and Terence who has trouble with stealing and gang experiance. They all get picked to live in an apartment together and they can not have contact with their family for the first six months. They all agree just wanting to get out of juvie. Terence trys to mess it all up but everytime he trys, Arjay and Gecko try to get him to stop because they dont want to go back to juvie. Healy is the one who takes care of them and lives with them. One day Terence trys to escape to get into this gang and Arjay and Gecko try to get him back inside the room, Healy walks in and starts asking whats going on and Terence pushes him into Arjay and Healy falls over the ramp of the window and falls several stories and hits the trash can. They all run down there and see that his head is bleeding and they think he is dead. Arjay notices that he is just unconcius. Terence hotwires the car and Gecko drives while Arjay trys to keep Terence in the car. They decide to put him in the hospital and leave. They have a plan to go through out their days normal as if Healy was here because if anyone found out he wasnt they would all be sent back and be in even bigger trouble. Healy wakes up but is unconcuis. The kids dont know what to do. They dont want anyone figuring out what happend. Everything goes as planned untill people start asking where Healy is and they tell them that he's running erands or he's sleeping. They're running out of excuses to use. I like this book because it kept me on the edge the whole time, I was waiting and waiting because I just knew that something was going to happen. When I got this book from the library I started reading it and I couldnt stop. I read some of the book to my brother who hates sitting still listening to people read, but he kept telling me to keep going he wants to know what happens. Every page you turn there is something new and exciting in the book that's going on or will. You have got to read this book. I would give it a 5 star rating!!! "

    " I liked listening to this story a lot! I cheered for these boys as they changed and took responsibility for their decisions. Interesting premise, too: what would you do if you were put in a similar situation? Sometimes true freedom comes from unexpected places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eryn | 2/11/2014

    " A decently good book about the choices we make defining who we are as a person. "

    " Ahhhhhhhhh "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 1/14/2014

    " I really like this book. I wish there was an epilogue (I'm never happy without an epilogue), but otherwise it's a great book. (view spoiler)[ At the end, when Mrs. Vaughn kept talking about how she could get them turned in for a broken bowling trophy, and how absolutely NOTHING gets past her, I wanted to laugh out loud. Kind of a combination hysterical, relieved laugh, and ironic, wow is she making an idiot of herself laugh. (hide spoiler)] "

    " Excellent book. Gordon Korman has always been a favorite author of mine, with an ability to make authentic likable characters. He's done it again with "The Juvie Three". A social worker (Healy) chooses three juvenile delinquents from wildly different backgrounds to give them a chance at a new life. But things go wrong really fast when Healy gets hurt and put in a coma, almost ending their chance before it starts. Can Gecko, Arjay and Terence pull together and fool the school, the courts, the neighbors that they are supervised until his return? Full of humor, ingenuity and wit, you won't be able to put this one down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Hochstrasser | 12/29/2013

    " What a great premise for a young adult book! Three kids in juvie are given a second chance, but then their foster dad is unavailable for quite a long time, so they decide to pretend he is still looking out for them, otherwise, they go back to juvie. Three adolescents doing the right thing, even though they had to be forced before this change of events. Well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 12/25/2013

    " This would be a good book for middle school aged kids. Boys I think would be the target group - especially those that find themselves in trouble more often than not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie | 10/12/2013

    " 3 teenager boys in juvie halls given a second chance to prove themselves & all the mishaps & troubles that find them along with way. great book to recommend to our young male readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 5/18/2013

    " Fairly simple book, but a great story. Korman is always entertaining. This shows three kids "doing the right thing" when they didn't have to. "

    " Definite pick for middle school. enjoyed the tension between the three boys and their motivations. Good examination of peer pressure for positive change. "

    " I've been a Gordon Korman fan since I read his short trilogies years ago and this was just as good as them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ezekiel Carsella | 8/3/2011

    " Must I say why this was a good book? I mean for once Mr. Korman gave us a detailed novel made of awesomeness and win. Not to say his other books were bad just short and lacking of details. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 5/23/2011

    " i loved this book. when ever i thought they were going to get caught, i started to get a little sad. but i was always wrong. i didn't want to put that book down. it was an amazing read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jess | 5/19/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 5/14/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dean | 5/12/2011

    " Its sort of blunt as to say they whipped out the caracters and setting pretty ealy on "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff | 5/8/2011

    " An interesting read, I just didn't believe the ending. You can't set up an almost impossible situation and then have everything just work out perfectly. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 4/29/2011

    " I enjoyed the combination of heart, humor and drama this story offered. "

    " I liked this book. It will be an easy read for most 6-8. The content is acceptable for all grades. Most kids can identify with doing something wrong even though if it is for the greater good. "
