Book details:
Stuffed by Eric Walters
When Ian and his classmates watch a documentary about the health concerns of eating fast food, Ian decides to start a boycott and stop everyone he can from eating at Frankie's, a huge fast-food chain with a questionable menu. The boycott takes off and Frankie's gets concerned. The company's lawyers threaten Ian and his friends and try to force them to stop the boycott. Ian must convince others that the boycott is a good idea. Can Ian stand up for what he believes in? Can you take on a corporate behemoth and win?

Back by Norah McClintock
Jojo's back, released from jail, and people are tense and afraid all over again. They wonder if his friends will start showing up again. They wonder if they'll be walking down the street one day and they'll run into Jojo and Jojo will give them attitude or shove them around, just for fun. Jojo's friends have a way of making it hard—really hard—on people who decide to press charges against Jojo. Those people just wish Jojo would go away and never come back. Then there are the people who have hate in their hearts. These people wish something bad would happen to Jojo. Something really bad.

"An egg-shaped device...[the] GoReader fits comfortably in the palm of your hand...[and] it's simple to operate...The reader did a good job of animating the story and evoking the different characters in both Back and Stuffed...GoReader has real potential for supporting certain groups of high school students who are struggling to read: EAL students who can hear the unaccented narrative voice of the story they are reading and reluctant readers who might be more willing to persevere with a book if they have audio assistance (not to mention the "cool" factor of listening on a digital device.)...I highly recommend the GoReader for use by reading clinicians, resource teachers, and teachers of EAL students. Good for Orca for going digital!"
