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!

Description:

Thirteen-year-old Trav has always wondered about his dead-before-he-was-born dad. But when he heads from California to his grandmother’s house in rural Minnesota, hoping to learn about his past, he gets more than he bargained for.

It turns out his dad was involved in a bank robbery right before he mysteriously disappeared, and the loot from the take is still missing. Along with Kenny and Iz, the kids next door, Trav embarks on a search for the cash. But the trio’s adventure quickly turns dangerous when it becomes clear that someone else is looking for the money—someone who won’t give up without a fight!

Find it on Goodreads.
