I've read Tom Boy and rather liked it. Reminded me a bit of The Amboy Dukes.
Actually it's Irving Shulman who's generally considered to be the father of
JD lit. Amboy Dukes, published in 1947 sold over 2 million copies. But
Ellson is regarded as "one of it's most adept practioners" (I'm quoting
Teenage Confidential, an excellent history of Juvenile Deliquency), having
published over a dozen JD titles.
