Surf Mules by G. Neri

Logan Tom’s life is falling apart.  Just before the end of high school, one of his best friends, Fin, is killed in a surfing accident.  Then, he finds out that his deadbeat dad’s money troubles have put his college fund in jeopardy.  The last straw is when Logan breaks his ankle — because he hits an opossum while driving his scooter at night.  It seems like nothing will ever work out again, and Logan is desperate to get his life back into some semblance of order so that he can find a way to still go to college in the fall.  When Logan and Z-boy are offered a “quick and easy” job, though, Logan is not so sure it’s worth the risk.  The job, after all, is smuggling drugs across the country — and getting caught could put his entire future at risk.  But, since Z-boy is so insistant that HE has no other options in his life, and since Logan is too worried about keeping his friend happy, he ends up going along for the ride.  I won’t ruin the ending by telling you what happens, but I will say that the horrible way things turn out more than makes up for the glorification of drug use and the simplicity with which drug trafficking is originally treated.

Happy Reading!

  1. I loved this author’s Chess Rumble, and this looks good, too. Thanks for the review; the title isn’t the greatest and I might have missed this otherwise.
