and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
My pick for this week:
How to Make Friends and Monsters
by Ron Bates
Expected publication: August 7th 2013
Genre: Children’s Fiction
Some Friends Are Just Worth Making For Howard Boward, science genius, making friends in middle school is hard. The other kids have more fun creatively expanding Howard’s name than actually hanging out, as in How-weird or How-Lame. . So, why not actually make a friend? A little wonder putty, some DNA, a few accidentally spilled chemicals and—boom!—instant friend. Monster friend, that is. Franklin ends up being cool in middle school, and he helps Howard climb the uber-popular ladder, becoming How-Cool. But the new fame and friendship isn’t exactly everything Howard hoped. Turns out real friendship might not be so simple, even when you create your own friends from scratch.
Why I’m waiting…
Uh, super nerd creating his own friends with “a little wonder putty, some DNA, and a few accidentally spilled chemicals?” Yeah, this is going to be a super fun read! And it just so happens to fit into the May Monster Madness blog hop. Perfect. 🙂
What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
