Caleb Franklin and his big brother Bobby Gene have the whole summer for adventures in the woods behind their house in Sutton, Indiana. Caleb dreams of venturing beyond their ordinary small town, but his dad likes the family to stay close to home. Then Caleb and Bobby Gene meet new neighbor Styx Malone. Styx is sixteen and oozes cool. He's been lots of different places. Styx promises Caleb and Bobby Gene that together, they can pull off the Great Escalator Trade--exchanging one small thing for something better until they achieve their wildest dream. But as the trades get bigger, the brothers soon find themselves in over their heads. It becomes clear that Styx has secrets--secrets so big they could ruin everything--and Caleb fears their whole plan might fall apart. In this madcap, heartwarming, one-thing-leads-to-another adventure, friendships are forged, loyalties are tested ... and miracles just might be possible.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Swimming holes, bike rides, figuring out what to do with a bag of fireworks (besides hiding it from mom and dad, of course) -- summer has never been such an adventure until Styx Malone came to town.

I absolutely adored this book.

Caleb and his brother Bobby Gene have been known to get into trouble on occasion, but when 16-year-old Styx comes to town their adventures take on a whole new element. Caleb immediately worships Styx while Bobby Gene is more level-headed. Regardless, they both agree to help out with the Great Escalator Trade. They have no idea what they are getting into!

This was a pretty interesting book how do you say the name though?
"Stikes" vs "Sticks"?

This is one of my favorite books of the year! Funny, touching, and thought-provoking. It feels like that classic summer tale of kids getting into trouble and learning life lessons.
