Format: Paperback
A truck crash, a mystery and six boys growing up along the banks of the Ohio River all add up to a fast flowing and suspenseful tale. In a time of life when all is possible, when the summer is endless yet adolescence is complicating relationships, these boys remain true to each other, to their ideals and their joint purpose. Interesting characters plus a fine sense of place keep the reader engaged as the escapades pile up and the mystery unfolds.

Author Hank Racer knows how to keep suspense in the air, and the pages turning! Young adults--girls as well as boys--will feel like one of the River Rats just by reading their daring adventures! This story, set in a small town, has an authentic voice and lots of action (plenty of trouble for the kids to get into while trying to solve the mystery). The kids' dialogue puts you right in the center of the little group.

To back one up through thick and thin, to help one against insurmountable odds- that's what friends are for. "The River Rats" is the tale of six of these friends and their dog who must deal with the sudden emergence of the biggest mystery to hit there town in an incredibly long time. In order to figure out this enigma, they must make river rescues, join the circus, and other seemingly unrelated acts to get through this tale with themselves and their friendships intact. "The River Rats" is deftly written and a highly recommended story for community library fiction collections.

Format: Paperback
From the opening line of Hank Racer's new middle grade chapter novel, The River Rats, readers are swept along on a mystery that will keep them engaged till the last page.
The story explodes from the first sentence with the screaming tires of a semi truck on a rainy night. Then there is the secret of the ghostly, red eyed specter submerged in the Ohio River. An adventure for the pre-teen friends known as The River Rats, the story takes place in those lazy, waning days of summer just before the start of the new school year.
Drawing on memories of his own childhood, Racer's gentle descriptions of life in a small river town, where everyone knows everyone else, give the story unique authenticity. For those who cherish memories of growing up away from the hustle and bustle of major metropolitan areas, the characters are just like people we all knew.
Best friends, boy meets girl, and for icing on the cake, the circus comes to town.
A good story, told well. You can't ask for more than that.
