I am usually pretty skeptical about reading male authors but this was a very welcome exception to that fear.
Zander Zink had me fuming from page one. His ability to bring life to his words is amazing. I took a joyous ride from hatred to disgust, making a short stop in empathetic pain before turning towards hope and a happy dance. This is a short story that has some pretty hilarious and crass humor melted around a sweet little romance.

The Absence of Harry is a quick and entertaining read perfect I am usually pretty skeptical about reading male authors but this was a very welcome exception to that fear. The Absence of Harry is a quick and entertaining read perfect for a beach day or just some alone time with a good book. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a quality quick read This is a story that can be read in a couple of hours which is fortunate because even as a woman I was crossing my legs and wincing in sympathy with Kevin, the main character, for most of it. On the plus side this story is an amusing romantic comedy with a nice pair of lead characters that will make you smile.
On the negative side; the story is silly, far-fetched and completely over the top but for some reason it is still an enjoyable read! View 1 comment. It's nothing amazing, but it's a cute fun read. Dec 08, Camila Restrepo rated it really liked it. Light, romantic, fabtastical The basic story is cute, worthy of Hallmark. However, there are so many superlatives used as adjectives that it does become fantastical after a while. Still, the underlying humor keeps up character engagement and the momentum going.
The ending is a cherry on top of the mound of weightless whipped cream that this story is. Go ahead, have a chuckle, or maybe even a laugh! Jul 03, Judy McDougall rated it it was amazing. Everything a good read needs Humor, challenges, love, regret, a hero, sex, friendship, and best of all overcoming what one might consider an insurmountable handicap.
The book is a short read but oh so refreshing.
Keep your family well read

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Here are a few to try:. Adapted for YA readers, this version allows boys fascinated by war stories, heroism, sports, survival, and just an amazing true adventure story the chance to relish the details in both words and, in this edition, illustrations. My own sons loved the movie version of the original edition of this book. I was thinking of getting it for them to pick up, until I heard it was filled with pages of technical explanations that even somewhat-science-geeky teens might get bored or lost by.
‘Harry Potter’ Book Plots Left Out of the Movies – Variety
This is the fantastic story of fictional astronaut Mark Watney, who is left behind on a mission to Mars and has to figure out how to survive until his crew can return for him. A book about a kid who has been raised by ghosts in a graveyard — that is a premise that has near-perfect, young-teen-boy appeal. The worlds of the living and the dead collide as the boy, Bod — actually, Nobody Owens — tries to avoid the man Jack, who killed his family in the first place.
And of course, other than his upbringing, home, and ability to Fade as in, disappear , Bod is just your average kid. Mmm hmmm…. Author Scieszka, who also compiled Guys Read , pulls together a compelling anthology of writing about boyhood from a range of male authors, some of whom are familiar from the middle grade and YA shelves.
Plus, the anthology format means reluctant or easily distracted teens can dip in and out without track. I can safely say my teen son loved this book, but I have to honestly add that I read it aloud to him it all counts! What I thought might be a chore for me turned into quite a bit of fun for us both.

Or is he? My son has been a Boy Scout for a few years now, and has a dog-eared copy of the official Boy Scout Handbook. Recently, I came across the first edition of the same manual, published in Just 15 years old, Jack Raab finds his way into the Army Air Force with romantic ideas about war and heroism, and comes face to face with its horrible reality — not least when he ends up in a German POW camp.
