In AKA ROWAN POHI, Bobby Steele attends a run-down city high school. One day, on a lark, Bobby and his two best friends invent a boy named Rowan Pohi and manage to get this fictitious student accepted at the finest prep school in the city. Bobby, who feels trapped by his life at home, sees in Rowan Pohi a tempting alter-ego, and the possibility of a better life.
In this intense, funny and touching novel, Ralph captures teen boys' thoughts, dialog and motivation creating an authentic and thought-provoking read.
