Another book in the Peabody series, but it isn't as good Apr 7, 2003
Scruggs Grady is the side character in the book Derwood Inc., but in this book he's the main character. The reader follows him as he tries to tame himself from his street/bully life and hopefully to become the son of his adopted mother, Mrs. Bennet.
Enter his rich but unknown aunt, who sends for him from her rich estate in California, sight unseen. Scruggs is quite reluctant to leave his newfound home, but he swallows his fear of flying and journeys to her home.
He finds himself wrapped up in a world where money can buy anything...and does. Who is the mysterious face peering through his window? Why is his aunt so mysterious? Who is The Juggler a mysterious note warns him of? Scruggs arrived, figuring on finding a rich aunt...but he finds himself playing A Dangerous Game instead.
This book doesn't deliver as much as the others did. The writing style is rather terse (not that it's BAD), and the character isn't as enjoyable to read about. Scruggs seems to be a little too smart/clever in his dealings with his fighting opponents, and those who are after him. I'm sorry, but I enjoyed reading more about Jack and Penny Derwood's misadventures than I do Scruggs'. Still, it IS admittedly a cool book.
Beware of the Juggler! Apr 17, 2000
Scruggs Grady has changed since he got saved. He hasn't broken anybody's window for a long time, and has stopped bullying little kids. He is about to have his dream come true, a real mother. After years of foster care, Mrs. Bennet is going to adopt him. Then one day he finds a strange sign on his door: "Beware the Juggler" and his social worker comes to visit.
With the discovery of a wealthy aunt, Scruggs is off to California, leaving behind the new life he had begun to build. Even the show of wealth and fun which his aunt could offer seemed meaningless. Why wouldn't she let him go to church? And what had happened to his Bible?
Mystery engulfs Scruggs in his new life. Everything turns into A Dangerous Game.
