Publisher's Summary

Gordon Korman is an award-winning young adult author with over 50 titles to his credit. Told in an electrifying, hard-edged style, The Juvie Three follows a trio of young delinquents who are granted a very special opportunity in New York City. Accessory to robbery, grand theft auto, driving without a license - these boys did it all, and now they're doing hard time in various juvenile detention centers. Then, however, a mysterious stranger visits each of them, offering to pull them out of "jail" immediately. But isn't there always a catch?

Middle School 8th Grade

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I bought this audio to accompany the novel for my 8th grade Language Arts classes. Although I enjoy an audio book, The Juvie Three audio was a bit dry and didn't play up the characters personalities to make the story interesting.


What other book might you compare The Juvie Three to and why?

I would compare this book to The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. It has a lot of similarities. Both deal with boys coming of age, labeled as juvenile delinquents, making tough decisions that can be life changing, and ever changing relationships that many adolescents go through.


What didn’t you like about Christopher Evan Welch’s performance?

The book has a constant level of anticipation and excitement. Welch could have played up the character emotion more.


Was The Juvie Three worth the listening time?

Yes, it was great for my unsatisfactory and limited knowledge level readers. However, it was not enjoyed by my proficient and advanced level readers.

Reading may be better here

The reader had a nice reading voice but not for this book. The kids were suppose to be harden juvies but the voice had them a little sissy-like. Wasn't impressed by story or reader.
