The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander

Have you ever wondered about underground life in a middle school? This book portrays the school that boys who love movies like The Godfather or Moneyball fantasize that school was like. Long time friends, a boy who is street smart and a boy who is book smart, team up and together they solve average kid’s problems using a no longer used bathroom as their office. One day they learn that a bad, bad kid is trying to take over their territory/school and they decide to fight back. Nothing happens the way they plan, their trust is shattered and it threatens their close friendship, as well as their safety in their own school. How will they emerge from this chaos? An entertaining book, albeit a bit ridiculous at times.
