SATURDAY SERIES: "Guy Reads" by Jon Scieszka

Guys Read: Thriller

So I have a son that doesn't much like to read anything, however, he does like these books!!!  The secret??? They are short stories geared to boys.  They only take about 30 minutes to read.  They aren't AMAZING LITERATURE, but if they get him to read, okay!!!  I thought after each one was done that he'd say he didn't really like it, but I was wrong.  I guess I just don't think like a 13 year old boy. (Thank goodness.)  Anyway, the really cool thing is that each story is written by a different author. The "Thriller" authors are all of the best mystery writers of the day, like Patrick Carmen, author of the "Skeleton Creek" series, Mary Haddox Peterson, James Patterson, MT Anderson...  and so on.  Give them a try with your son or struggling male student, or anyone else for that matter.  Girls will love them too!
