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



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!
