Tex McCormick, fifteen, is happy—happy living in a small town in Oklahoma; happy living with his big brother Mason; and especially happy to live next door to his best friend Johnny, and Johnny’s sister Jamie. But with money running out and no sign of Pop for months on end, Mason is getting nervous. He’s talking about leaving Oklahoma too, for good. Feeling adrift, Tex goes looking for—and finds—trouble. When happiness is impossible to find, how will Tex keep himself and his family together?

This classic by the author of The Outsiders and Rumble Fish explores the true meanings of strength and vulnerability.

“In Tex, the raw energy for which Hinton has justifiably reaped praise has not been tamed—it’s been cultivated, and the result is a fine, solidly constructed, and well-paced story.”—School Library Journal

Here’s the set-up:
The Epic of Gabriel and Jibreel is a cautionary tale of the ultimate friendship. It is a heartbreaking story of two boys, a refugee, and a child from a wealthy suburb. Gabriel lives with his father in a large house surrounded by other large houses. One day while exploring the beach, Gabriel meets Jibreel. Jibreel lives with his father in the upside-down boat that brought them across the sea. With similar stories of devastating loss, yet joyful dreams, and a love for flying, the boys form an incredible and indestructible friendship. This is an excruciating story – a children’s picture book with a powerful message that is worth hearing.
