12 Days - A Countdown of Holiday Ideas #7




On the seventh day of this holiday season, my loved one gave to me...

GEEKS, GIRLS, AND SECRET IDENTITIES - Mike Jung (Arthur A. Levine Books)


An unexpected superhero, a dastardly villain and a giant robot (along with a little romance) and you've got great elements for a boy book. It's not just one difficult thing that Jung accomplishes so masterfully in his debut novel; it's two difficult things. In addition to keeping this adventure fast-paced and engaging throughout, he's also made it funny. For many authors writing for young people, humor seems forced. Here it is so natural.
