I started a new job this week. Wow, I’ve had about 25 jobs in my life time. Yuck. I don’t do well with stress and that is usually why I leave a position. Recently I found a super low stress job. One problem:
Low stress = low pay.
But I’m ok with that!!
It’s difficult to find books that teen or tween boys will enjoy. I have a suggestion:
Trash by Andy Mulligan
Find it here on Amazon
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 ha ha.

The Lexile Measurement for Trash is: 850L
A great book for a report on cultures, geography, world studies, or just summer reading.
I’m sure all of you have heard of Shirley Jackson. She wrote the book The Haunting of Hill House.
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.
Link to that book on Amazon
Give it it a try.
