Koja, Kathe._Buddha boy._Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2003
Jim is fine at school, hovering socially somewhere between
several social groups until he is assigned to work on a
project with Jinsen, better known as "Buddha Boy."  Jinsen
is an artistically talented boy who lives alone with his
elderly aunt.   As Jinsen's ability starts to become more
evident, the jocks choose him as a target.. and Jim get in
the middle of the whole thing.  This 117 page book is the
story of a misunderstood young man and an average boy who
are thrown together and become friends.  Of course the
conflict between the jocks and Jinsen reaches a climax at
the end of the story. This would be a good high interest
book since it takes place in a High School.
