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 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.

You can read the full description and reviews by clicking 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!
