Middle School 8th Grade
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.
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.
The book has a constant level of anticipation and excitement. Welch could have played up the character emotion more.
Yes, it was great for my unsatisfactory and limited knowledge level readers. However, it was not enjoyed by my proficient and advanced level readers.
