Speaking of summer reading...I am waaaayyyy behind this year. A lot of my summer reading has been procedural, taking care of family medical needs and college preparations for my son. So now I am in a scramble to catch up a bit! My current book is a Bluebonnet Award Nominee:
The Last Kids on Earth is a first person zombie-and-monster apocalyptic narrative by Max Brallier, heavily illustrated by Douglas Holgate. Thirteen-year-old Jack Sullivan, a foster kid used to dealing with trouble, tackles the new threats in his life like he's taking on a video game. Jack's sense of humor and honesty about his failures and teenage insecurities will have you giggling as you read about his adventures with flesh-eating zombies and CVS (yes, the drugstore)-crushing monsters.
It's Monday; what's on your reading pile for this wet week ahead?
