    Notes from the Midnight Driver (EBK)

    by Jordan Sonnenblick

    Alex's parents are separated, his father is dating Alex's former third-grade teacher, and being 16 isn't easy, especially when it comes to girls. Alex is mad. Instead of getting even, though, Alex ends up in trouble with the law and is ordered to do community service at a senior center. At the center, he is assigned to Solomon Lewis, a "difficult" senior with a lot of gusto, advice for Alex, and a puzzling and colorful Yiddish vocabulary. Eventually, the two learn to deal with their past and each other in ways that are humorous, entertaining, and life-changing. Funny and touching at the same time, this companion novel to Drums, Girls & Dangerous Pie will have readers cheering for the good-hearted Alex.

About This Book

* "Sonnenblick deftly infiltrates the teenage mind to produce a first-person narrative riddled with enough hapless confusion, mulish equivocation, and beleaguered deadpan humor to have readers nodding with recognition, sighing in sympathy, and gasping with laughter — often on the same page." — Horn Book, starred review

 * "Sonnenblick has created a memorable cast of characters... teens will easily connect with Alex's epiphanies... It all adds up to a funny, bittersweet tour de force." — Booklist, starred review
