From celebrated novelist S. E. Hinton, the classic YA novel TEX, now available as an eBook for the first time.Tex McCormick, fifteen, is happy: happy living in a small town in Oklahoma; happy living with his big brother Mason; and especially happy to live next door to his best friend Johnny, and Johnny's sister Jamie. But with money running out and no sign of Pop for months on end, Mason is getting nervous. He's talking about leaving Oklahoma too, for good. Feeling adrift, Tex goes looking for—and finds—trouble. When happiness is impossible to find, how will Tex keep himself and his family together?From the author of THE OUTSIDERS, S. E. Hinton's classic story explores the true meanings of strength and vulnerability."In Tex, the raw energy for which Hinton has justifiably reaped praise has not been tamed—it's been cultivated, and the result is a fine, solidly constructed, and well-paced story." —School Library JournalAn ALA Best Books for Young AdultsA School Library Journal Best Books of the YearA New York Public Library Books for the Teen-AgeAn American Book Award Nominee

This is one of my favorite books by S.E. Hinton. I don’t know how many times I read this as a teen, but it was more than a handful. There’s plenty of excitement in this story about two teenage brothers trying to live together on their own without any adults around. Did you know that two minor characters in this story are major characters in That Was Then This is Now?

I love this book as much as The Outsiders. S.E. Hinton is an amzing author. It's an exciting and very touching novel about two brothers struggling without much help from their father. Parts of it made me cry while others made me laugh. I love rereading it.

I never realized that this could be read as a followup to That Was Then, This Is Now when I read the books when I was younger.
