    Dimmie Zeigler 4 stars
    This is a continuation of the story of Nic Sheff that was started with his father's book, My Beautiful Boy. Nic has had a life-long struggle with drug addiction and these books are hard to read. The fact the he has survived and is truly on the road to recovery is inspiring and gives hopes to the millions of those who share addictions.

  • Guys Write for Guys Read

  • Review: TCL Call #: YA 810.8 Guys

    D-4.8 stars
    Wow. Pretty much every great male author in young adult and children's literature writing directly to boys, about what it's like to be a boy. I'm not a boy and I loved it. Some of the short stories are about these authors' personal experiences as boys or young men. They are real and touching and funny. I'm talking funny. Like stories about crushing on the high-school math teacher, being horrible at sports, getting called a girl. Mostly stories about humiliation, but they're honest and REAL (mostly).

    If you are a boy, you need to check out this book.
    If you don't really love reading, you need to check out this book.
    If you breathe air, you need to check out this book.

  • The Eternity Code (Artemis Fowl, #3)
  • Author: Eoin Colfer
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: TCL CALL #: YA CD BOOK COLFER

    Chris’s Rating: 4 Stars
    Boy…Genius…Villain…I mean Artemis Fowl, has created a super computer using human and fairy technology. When a shady American shows up to a business meeting and learns that Artemis is not planning to sell the “cube” to him, but rather wants him to pay to delay its release, things don’t go according to plan. Barely surviving the confrontation…well not completely surviving…Artemis goes to any extreme necessary to save friends and the fairies from a harsher villain than the boy genius has ever attempted to be.
    I admit that I’ve been reading this series out of order, so even though this is the third book, I have read 3-4 AF books already, and I rather enjoy them. This particular book is full of action, tech, and plots within plots. I’d recommend Artemis Fowl for just about any boy 10-15 years of age.

  • Down the Rabbit Hole (Echo Falls, #1)
  • Author: Peter Abrahams
  • User Rating: 4
  • Review: Teton County Library call #YA Abrahams

    Adam's rating: 4 stars

    I picked this book up because I'm a sucker for Stephen King and he said Down the Rabbit Hole is "My all-time favorite. Astonishing." Peter Abrahams is best known for his mystery books for adults. He is able to take the complexity of plot and depth of character found more commonly in adult fiction and migrate it into a story about a 13 year-old girl. It's a classic mystery formula but told in a fresh and authentic way. Definitely a fun read for kids ages 12 to 100.
