OVERVIEW

The third 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 rescue a rook left for dead, Kenny is determined to keep it alive. Nicky doubts the scruffy bird will make it, but then Nicky has plenty else to worry about. This time, it’s not his dad or Kenny who needs help – his dad’s sorting his life out and Kenny’s busy making plans with his new best friend. Now it’s Nicky’s turn to struggle—with a school bully, his first love, and the fact that everything is about to go very, very wrong.

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.
