Product Description

PARTS & LABOR: The Adventures of Max Dugan
A novel for middle-grade children

Max Dugan, 10, is a fourth-grader battling bullies at school and his emotions at home; his father deployed to Afghanistan and did not return. His mother, Kate, a labor-and-delivery nurse, struggles to maintain the family, which also includes Scarlett, 14, and Maddy, 4. The therapist says they are not coping well. In fact, the Dugan family is a mess—until a strange boy named Norbert moves in next door and changes their lives in more ways than they could ever imagine.

About the authors

Mark Gimenez is the author of six novels: THE COLOR OF LAW, THE ABDUCTION, THE PERK, THE COMMON LAWYER, ACCUSED, and THE GOVERNOR'S WIFE. Cole Gimenez is a seventh-grader. They live in Texas.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inveterate reader 9 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book purely to see if it would be suitable for one of my grandsons to read, as have read all of Mark Gimenez previous books and very much enjoyed most of them and am very pleased to say this book was no exception. Its a really lovely story, though not at all what l expected, but very suitable for intermediate children onwards, (or indeed some adults - l certainly enjoyed it!).

l read this on kindle, but have purchased for my grandson I paperback and hope he enjoys it too. l noticed belatedly that the book is written by Mark AND HIS YOUNG SON, but very good anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Max Dugan, I am a fan 11 Feb 2013
By Margot Comer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed reading several books by M Gimenez. I just grabbed this one and was delighted to see the extraordinary writing applied to a "kid" story. I remained engaged throughout and very happy that I can recommend it to my 11 year old grandson as well. Kudos

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 13 April 2013

I fell in love with Max and my students did too! Fabulous read aloud to use in the classroom! My kiddos begged me to read it. This book opened up great dialogue about bullying. Interestingly enough my boys and girls were equally enthused about the book. Well done Mark and Cole.

I am a grandfather and I will make sure my grandsons read this book when they are old enough. In the meanwhile I will push many adults to read it, they will benefit as well. Looking forward to the sequel

I have a 7 year old grandson. I wanted to read a Dugan book before I gave it to him. I have gotten one for his birthday.

There is a real story there if you read between the lines. Great characters, too. I have read all of Gimenez's books and they always tell a real story we need to acknowledge
