A Must Read…..The Reluctant Journal of Henry K. Larsen

Standard

THe RELUCTANT JOURNAL OF HENRY K. LARSEN, by Susin Nielson

Darker than her previous novels, Susin peoples this novel about the ultimate cost of bullying with a cast of fabulous characters, dark humour, and a lovable, difficult protagonist struggling to come to terms with the horrible crime his brother has committed.

I honestly have not stopped thinking about this book, and how I wanted to put into words how much I loved it.

Honestly, in my own ignorance, I have never really thought much about the families of the shooter, when I hear of these things on the news.  I have felt for the shooter in some cases, but never really thought about their families.  Always the victims’ families.  But they are victims also, aren’t they?

I just loved the writing, the characters, the story….all of it.

Henry K. Larsen…..what a brave, strong character.  Love him!

I am sure I will add more, I just can’t figure out how to put it all into words.

This is a must read for  young adult/middle grade

I give it 5 of 5 stars!
