Fletcher, Ralph Also Known As Rowan Pohi, 199 pgs. Clarion Books, 2011. Language - PG (21 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - PG-13; Violence - PG; While hanging out with his buddies one day, Bobby fills out an application for the resident prep school as "Rowan Pohi." They all thought it would end there, but a letter soon arrives congratulating "Rowan" on being accepted. On a whim, Bobby becomes Rowan, goes to Whitestone, and actually starts to like it. "But with any fairy tale there's got to be trouble too." Will Bobby/Rowan have to go back to life before?
Fitting in can be hard when you're being yourself, let alone someone else, but I love that even being someone he wasn't Bobby was able to learn things about himself. Bobby worked hard to get what he wanted and when he knew the gig was up he told the truth. That's what I like about Bobby. I also like this book because it's possible and gets you thinking. If you're looking for a fast, captivating read, this is for you.
