a Midwest high school librarian takes on YA and adult books
Monday, December 3, 2012
I laughed my way through this audiobook (and Newbery Medal winner)! Young Jack Gantos suffers from nosebleeds and can never make BOTH his parents happy. He mows his mom's corn to make room for his dad's airfield and gets grounded for the entire summer! Luckily an old woman who writes the town's obituaries befriends him. The plot isn't what makes this book--the storytelling is. You'll laugh--promise!
