Read from February 28 to March 02, 2012

I enjoyed this quick story about a boy who lies all the time and has convinced himself that everyone does it and it is harmless. Of course he discovers later in the story that his lies have consequences and he has to face the music. I thought Paulsen handled the subject with great flair, keeping Kevin as the same kid throughout, before and after he learned his lesson. He still was a jokester and took a lighthearted approach to things, but he stopped taking the easy way out and lying and manipulating people for personal gain. It was also nice hearing from the author at the beginning of the book and finding out how much fun he had writing the character and how Kevin pretty much wrote himself.
