ALL RISE FOR THE HONORABLE PERRY T. COOK, by Leslie Connor

perry

The story: Perry has lived in the Blue River Correctional Facility his entire life, juggling his routines on the inside with his life at school, and always waiting for the day when his mother will be paroled. Enter DA Thomas VanLeer, who’s completely sure that prison is no place for a kid–so sure that he pulls Perry out and into foster care at his own home. It doesn’t matter that VanLeer is Perry’s best friend Zoey’s stepdad: his house isn’t Perry’s home, and Perry’s determined to get back to his mom, no matter what it takes.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Perry’s family might live in a prison, but that doesn’t make them any less a family.  I really liked this one!
