A Book for Teen Boys

It’s difficult to find books that teen or tween boys will enjoy. I have a suggestion:

Trash by Andy Mulligan

Find it here:

The storyline is a mystery, fast paced and interesting. It takes place in a fictitious setting, but many feel it is the Smokey Mountains of Manila where people are so poor, they pick through trash for items to sell, eat or use.

I really enjoyed this story. It does have a few intense spots, so may be best for kids over 13 or 14. That is my “mom” rating ┬áha ha.

You can read the full description and reviews to judge for yourself

The Lexile Measurement for Trash is: 850L

A great book for a report on cultures, geography, world studies, or just summer reading.

Enjoy!

A Great Creepy Novel

I’m sure all of you have heard of Shirley Jackson. She wrote the book The Haunting of Hill House. http://amzn.to/2i6cb02 If you haven’t read it, I encourage you to do so. There are no monsters or gore, just freaky goodness.

Speaking if freaky, Shirley Jackson also wrote We Have Always Lived in the Castle. I recently listened to this in audiobook form using the Hoopla app. Oh my goodness such great writing. Such amazing writing of messed up characters.
