Bucking the Sarge by Christopher Paul Curtis.
Wendy Lamb Books/Random Books:NY, 2004.

Hardworking Luther helps his mother run her business network for just the promise of money for college and and the possibility of a future in her businesses to fall back on. He learns some important lessons along the way-including his need to stand up for himself and his beliefs. He is self-reliant and dependable but has a buddy who drags him into troublesome situations.

I like this author's style and humor. I have been waiting for him to come out with something new since reading Bud, Not Buddy and The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963.
