Title: Doing Time
Author: Rob Thomas
This collection of ten short stories by acclaimed YA author Rob Thomas details high school students fulfilling one of their requirements for graduation: 200 hours of community services. Returning to the high school setting of his novel “Slave Day”, “Thomas challenges readers to look beneath the surface of these typical teenagers and realize that they are rarely the people they first seem to be. . . . The stories are well-written, interesting, provocative, and humorous, and often have a surprise ending” (“School Library Journal”, starred review). An ALA Best Book for Young Adults.
