        Also known as Rowan Pohi by Ralph Fletcher was an amazing unique book. This book was about a boy named Bobby Steele who lives with his Dad and little 5-year-old brother; when him and some friends meet at their usual hang out, the international house of pancakes, a.k.a IHOP they decide to make up a guy and send in an application for one of the best schools in his state, Whitestone. Surprisingly he gets accepted and while Marcus and Bid Poobs go on like  nothing happend Bobby has other ideas. A year ago when Bobby's mom left him she started a landslide of good things going down hill. His Dad and him losing a close relationship, money, girls, and most importantly his cruddy high school. Why shouldn't Bobby accept the application and pretend like he is the made-up Rowan Pohi to start new? This book was a good easy read and had light humor. I would say that this book was a 9 out of 10.

        This book is about Bobby Steele, the book starts off with him and his friends sitting qt IHOP and they decide to make a fake person named Rowan Pohi. They submit an application to one of the best schools in their state and he gets accepted so Bobby  pretends to be Rowan to get into the school. I thought this was a really good quick read but it wasn't the best book I've ever read.
