Middle Grade Monday – This Guy
I’m on my way up north to spend my annual week hanging out with this guy:
Ghosts in the Fog is my ace in the hole, I think, but we’ll see. And if we get a chance to try any or the Irresponsible Science Experiments, I will try to document it here on the blog. As for the others, I think the Vietnam angle may hook him into Everybody Sees the Ants, and he’s not the most empathetic kid, so I’m hoping it will help him recognize bullying when he sees it and intervene. The copy of American Born Chinese is pristine, and I found it at a used bookstore for $1.99! I just want him to have it.
For myself, for the week, I’m taking several reading choices, but I’m mainly hoping to get to The Great Greene Heist and Mouseheart. Also, a certain someone managed to score an ARC of The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare for me at ALA, so I have that to look forward to when I get back.
What are you reading this summer?
