OVERVIEW

The second book in the powerful, authentic young adult book series Everyone Can Be a Reader (Hard Truths), expertly designed to engage reluctant readers and provide an accessible reading experience for all.

When Kenny and Nicky spot a glint of gold in the murky waters of Bacon Pond, they can’t leave it alone. It means money, and money helps patch things up when you haven’t got any. But sometimes it’s better not to look too deep. Not when there are local gangsters involved, and tough questions about your own family’s past. But Nicky can’t help looking back. He knows it’s a bad idea, and it could ruin everything. Can he save himself and his family, or will the secrets of the lake take them all down?

Perfect for anyone seeking gritty, realistic books for teen boys, the Everyone Can Be a Reader (Hard Truths) hi-lo book series presents accessible coming-of-age tales in an easy-to-read style. Union Square & Co.'s EVERYONE CAN BE A READER books utilize dyslexia reading tools like specialized fonts and paper tones, and are carefully formatted to meet readers where they are with engaging stories that encourage reading success across a wide range of age and interest levels.
