Tor Books by Brian Lumley. And in the weeks and months that followed I experienced one of those rough spots. Because this was the book that I had been certain would fly, and here it was still on the ground, hadn’t even taken off. I thought it was the jacket; the very garish yellowish jacket with a Letraset title was, to me, a real turn-off. I spoke to Nick; Nick agreed; Grafton would re-release with new jacket artwork by George Underwood.

What happens when a motivated teacher, frustrated with his barely literate inner city students, reaches wit's end? Most would snap or quit or snap or both. Brian Leiken didn't do either. Instead, in his free time, he began to write. Most would write about their frustrations with the uphill daily battle of trying to teach children completely distracted and desensitized by the technological world they were born into. Brian Leiken didn't do that either. Instead he wrote a novel he called Crossed Out. He wrote it for his students. He wrote a story set within a familiar setting -- high school. He wrote a book they could relate to that delivers a memorable lesson. Crossed Out was embraced by Leiken's students -- so much so, they began stealing copies of the book. That's how much they loved it. Upon learning this, Brian Leiken did what anyone with his talent would -- he wrote two more novels, Knocked Down and Messed Up, and placed all three under the umbrella label City Tales Novels. He then created a Teacher's Guide so the novels could easily be taught in classrooms. Leiken did all this in his spare time. Leiken did all this for the students he was frustrated by on a daily basis, students whose well-being and future he had come to care about like all teachers should. But I digress...

Crossed Out, Knocked Down, and Messed Up are wonderfully written and completely entertaining novels. The well-drawn and believable characters leap off each of these page-turners. The dialogue and situations feel real. And each book delivers a satisfying, inspiring, and memorable tale. It's no surprise the students at Leiken's school began stealing copies, because there's nothing else quite like these books on the market. Kudos to Brian Leiken. We need more books like these...and we need more teachers/authors like him.

This book is so great for students who have difficulty reading!I work with high school students who are at low reading levels and it is hard to find books that interest them. Usually the books that they can read are little kid stories, which doesn't capture their attention; thus the dilema. How can they become better readers if they don't practice reading? This book is the answer! AND there are 3 of them!! I started using them in my classroom and they loved them!

I used this book in a reading intervention class a few years ago. My students loved it. They enthusiastically read it and asked for additional titles from the same author. It's very difficult to find truly compelling literature that is short and accessible to all readers and this book is certainly both. The students respnded well to the narrative, which rang true to them, and the author's authentic voice. Highly recommend.
