The whole point behind Guys Read is to get boys reading and to have them enjoying reading. This book will definitely serve that purpose, but at the same time there were a few lackluster stories in here, in my opinion. There were 3 that I really enjoyed: Kid Appeal by David Lubar, Your Question for Author Here by Kate DiCamillo & Jon Scieska, and The Bloody Souvenir by Jack Gantos - the last of those three being the class favorite/most disgusting yet hilarious story.

Overall, I know this book will be passed around my classroom through all the boys and most of the girls and they'll laugh at the stories, talk about the, with one another, and make personal connections with the characters, which is the whole intent of this book.
