Old Children's Book. Liked it as a kid, but haven't read it in years. ( )

I have reread The Outsiders many times since I first discovered it, but I was very disappointed in That Was Then, This Is Now, another book by Ms. Hinton.

However, I am pleased to report that Tex is a worthwhile follow up read, a place to go to for a few hours, a story to sink into, deep.

Tex is 15, and is being raised by his older brother, Mace, in the absence of their father, who prefers the rodeo circuits to being home with his sons.

It's a trying time for the brothers, especially with money being short. Tex and his friend Johnny get into trouble over shenanigans, but Mace has his own demons he is struggling with.

And now Tex is in love.

Good read, entertaining, with some deeper elements that raise it above standard fare. ( )

The author really did a good job of putting the moral in the story. At the beginning, Mason provided emotional support for Tex. This really helped Tex control his anger after his horse was sold. When he got in trouble at school, both his brother and his father showed up to pick him up. Even though they weren't his real brother or father, they still showed love and care for him. ( )

Has some mature content like sex and drugs.
