I surveyed students in my middle school classes for recommendations of literature that would provide high interest to adolescent young men as well as young ladies. This book title came up, time and time again.
I bought and read it. I am impressed.
My student's have thoroughly enjoyed this text. We completed a mulitgenre project with the book and I've been overjoyed by the creative response I've received from all of my students.
