it was amazing

There was a lot I loved about Boy Bites Bug--that it started with a legal warning about the recipes included. Kids, don’t try making chocolate-covered ants or wax worm cookies without consulting your parents! And there were so many laugh-out-loud moments!

But the book is not just about laughs. There is real heart in the struggles Will has with how to be loyal to old friends and new ones, and as he wrestles with how his mistakes have hurt those around him. The story has a quick pace and characters the seem ready to step off the pages. It’s a great book for middle schools interested in bugs, wrestling, or just dealing with friendships as they and the people around them grow up and change. Highly recommended!

Love young adult and middle grade books? We have loads of reviews on!
