We know we're late on the hype for this book, but it's still worthy of another favorable mention.
It's the End of the World and I'm in My Bathing Suit, by Justin A. Reynolds, is clever and downright fun to read AND it's centered on a kid from the great city of CLEVELAND, Ohio!
Eddy's a 12 years old kid with ADHD trying to live his best summer life, ready to go to the Beach Bash, and then the adventure begins...
The most engaging part of this book is how Eddy checks in with the reader as he explains his story.
This upper elementary/middle school story is highly recommend for the young people who love a fun, slice of life story about a kid being a kid.
Did we mention it featured Cleveland too! :)
Excellent as an audiobook selection, as well. The narrator is awesome!
