We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Gr 8 Up—When 17-year-old Sherri accepts a student internship at a newspaper in a sleepy Canadian town, she's anxious to hone her hard-hitting journalism talents. Much to her disappointment, though, she's assigned the community section and is stuck reporting on poorly attended church rummage sales and a lackluster farmers' market. As Sherri covers her beat, she discovers that Shopwells, a big-box store, has an unusually strong influence on the town's residents and businesses. As she investigates, she uncovers evidence suggesting that Shopwells is employing mind control to manipulate its customers and employees. Although the plot is interesting, the protagonist doesn't always act or speak like a modern teenager, using words like "slacks" instead of "pants" and "gone to bed with" to refer to sex. The book has a certain naïveté that makes it feel suited to a younger audience, though the main character swears and talks about having sex with her boyfriend, an issue with no real bearing on the plot. These concerns make it difficult to pin down this novel's audience. The story line will keep readers entertained, but they may struggle to identify with the characters.—Lindsay Cesari, Baldwinsville School District, NY
