Geometry book with deductive approach

My son, 12, has been studying math with a tutor.

He has finished Algebra 1 (using the Larsen text), and will be starting geometry. His tutor is not a teacher, so she is not familiar with high school texts. We would like a geometry textbook that uses a deductive approach. I have older kids who took geometry in high school, and their text, also Larsen, took an applied approach, pretty much presented the theorems as givens, and relegated proofs to a sideshow.

So I'm looking for an intro book that has proofs and constructions front and center, but still has some applied material. Aside from Euclid's Elements, I've identified GEOMETRY by Ray C. Jurgensen and GEOMETRY by Harold Jacobs--the 2nd Edition.

Any opinions about either of these books or suggestions about other resources would be appreciated.
