Caught Between the Pages by Marlene Carvell
PJ Barnes is, in many ways, a typical high school student. At least the kind who is this close to failing - because he doesn't care. Not a lot of friends and not doing his homework - things start to unwind the day he finds that he has his teacher's journal. Reading it and dealing with life: druggies pressuring him (not to take drugs though), the jerk captain of his soccer team, his mentally not present step-father, and his mother getting in a car crash. What would YOU do? A fun read - reminded me of my brother (reasons for not doing homework). But not TU. Nay.
