Again, not a huge YA fan, but I got a kick out of this book. It's about a sophomore boy named Kyle who hates everything, wears a black hoodie and is incredibly intelligent. I have a kid exactly like him in my class this year, so I appreciated a different perspective on this kid who seems to be throwing his life away. It's a quick read, and a good story about a disgruntled teen who feels like the world is against him.

Kim That sounds cool. You're so good to read YA books so you can recommend them to students. Love it.

Jen I'm trying. I feel like they've gotten better actually, so it's not the typical melodrama. My mission this year has been to get students reading choice novels, so I've had to beef up my knowledge of them!
