Hero | Mike Lupica
post image

Ever since a friend told me finding books for boys 13-17 was difficult I‘ve kept my eyes open for them. Most of author Mike Lupica‘s books center around sports, which is great, but this one has a superhero theme.
The action starts right away and pulls you into the story. There‘s intrigue and adventure. Dodgy characters and flawed heroes. It‘s a fun read and I think it will appeal to boys who like adventure stories. #boysread

MeganAnn This looks great! I‘ll have to keep an eye out for a copy for my son. 📚 Your friend is right, finding books for older boys is tough. My son is almost 11, but reading at a much higher grade level and finding things for him to challenge him is getting harder. 1mo
LazyLimaLife @MeganAnn Adult books that have a younger protagonist might be the way to go as he gets older, but that tween interest level is hard to capture. 3w

We had a very busy and fun day. We woke up early (early compared to our normal during the weekends) and we went to the library for the Summer Reading Kickoff Party. After that we went out for brunch. Then we headed out to the fair where we met up with some friends. We all had a good time. On our way home @KennethTolesJr had to go to #BnN, because he just had to buy some books. When we got home we had #familyreadingtime and called it a day.

TheBookAddict I had a very small #bookhaul this time. Checkout Kenny‘s haul on his page. It‘s funny how Sy and Kenny both slouch the same way on the couch when they read. 😆 #familyfun #funatthefaur #litsyloveslibraries #TolesBoysRead #boysread #BarnesnNobleHaul #summerreadingchallenge (edited) 6mo

When Ben learned to read and fell in love with it, I warned everyone around me that I did not want to ever hear anyone say to him, "Boys don't read." This year, he's read 184 books so far and is writing his own book blog. ? #litsykids #boysread

I gave my nephew The Lightning Thief from my personal library, and now I think he's The Chosen One.
