If you only read ONE Coming of Age book, let this be the one! You'll close the book and find Florida beach sand in your shoes!
Nancy Commander whose last name is spelled wrong by Facebook. It is Commander. Nancy wrote at Amazon;
Excellent read! One of the two best reads of the summer for me. If you believe in miracles this is a must read. If you don't believe in miracles you will after reading Whale's book.
My second best read is The Yellow Bus Boys also by Ronnie Shaw...when Linda and I went to Atlanta to visit old friends I had to ask...what is Whale's real name? Yes, it is Ronnie Shaw. The Yellow Bus Boys is the best coming of age, stand up to bullies, funniest book that I have read!

I just finished Yellow Bus Boys yesterday . What a great read! From page one I was laughing and crying until the end. In my teen years I went on at least 6 of those yellow bus trips. They are part of who I am today. So many memorable experiences. I would suggest everyone read this book. I am a Yellow Bus Boy!

I just finished The Yellow Bus Boys a couple of nights ago and have to say that I have never laughed so much while reading a book. And that's saying something since I was there for every event, prank and mile of the trip.
As I read and would get to a part in the book that was hilarious, I would crack up even though I knew what was coming. It really brought back a very great time in my life. Who would have thought at the time that Ronnie would be this talented??? I would have taken it easy on him if I knew he would come back and expose all of our pranks! Good Job Baby Whale!
From the Author
This book was a complete joy to write from the first letter of the first word to the last period. During its creation, there were many hours of laughter while writing alone as well as reliving many of the stories within the book with a few, select friends who are actually in it.

“Rampaging across Florida in a yellow bus, 33 boys do what boys do well,” pranking, gas bagging, goof balling, hoodwinking, teasing, tormenting, bullying, seeking revenge, mobilizing attacks — while being outstanding boys that is expected of them by their minder, TJ.
Diesel is the loveable fart pants. One chapter is dedicated to the Ring of Fire. Flatulence could be another creative chapter title. Billy, an introverted kid, becomes the brains of the trip and acts as spy against the three elder boys who are supervisors. Ronnie Shaw wears in his new nickname, Baby Whale.
Ronnie Shaw’s love for fast food and his reviews of the first fish burger that came off the Mc Donald’s range in 64 is first rate. Ronnie has a photographic memory for conversations and tourist attractions. He’s a sensitive boy and still a junior. The sequel to this book, The Yellow Bus Boys Go Blue Canada Bound, shows Ronnie as a high schooler. Maybe testosterone, and not candy rush, will fuel this road trip that will be out soon.
“Ronnie Shaw, a 6th-grader from the inner-city projects of Atlanta, climbed aboard the big, yellow bus with thirty-three other boys for the vacation of a lifetime..” Ten days later, he walked off the bus a changed boy. He was now a man.
There were many pranks played on this bus and you will love how the younger, smaller kids win a couple of battles against the older, bigger kids.
So hop on the bus with Ron and the gang and take a ride from Atlanta, Georgia, to Daytona Beach, Florida. Feel the sand in your shorts, the sea breeze in your face and the thrill of jumping in the ocean for the first time. See what some of these boys saw for the very first times in their lives. I know, when I read this book, Ron Shaw's words took me back to 1959 when I was twelve and my first visit to the beach at Atlantic City, New Jersey.
I could go on and on, but the only way you can enjoy this book is to get a copy. I think you will be glad you did.
