Review: The Fourth Stall Part II by Chris Rylander

The Fourth Stall Part II by Chris Rylander is set in a school’s boys’ bathroom, which is the office of the main character, Mac. Mac earns money running a business from his office which is so far away that no one uses it, except for the people who come with problems. In the first book (The Fourth Stall) someone stole all the money that their business had made and I thought it might have been a normal breaking and entering, but it was a story of betrayal.

This book like the first is a middle school mystery. These types of books always draw me in and if I’m reading in the morning, I can’t get out of bed until I know what is going to happen next. It is really exciting with lots of action. 

There are lots of little side stories but one of the main ones is about the new Principal closing in on closing Mac's deserted bathroom. My heart jumped every time the principal was near Mac. I read on nervously. At first I thought that the principal was good because everyone expects all principals to be good, but as I read on, he wasn't what I thought he was.

Chris Rylander’s book ideas come from songs, movie scenes, and stories people have told him. Chris’ favourite books are Sideways Stories from Wayside School and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Like the Fourth Stall series, these books are set in middle school and the main characters are similar - they are funny and not very popular.
