Just released on September 8th, this hardcover book is the first in a series that I imagine will fly off the shelves and to the register in many 'tween boys' hands!

This is a great story of a boy who is faced with a live-in babysitter that he does NOT like. As some/MOST boys will, he devises a plan to control the situation and get Stella to leave. When he realizes his plan went too far and in addition to trying to get her to leave, he puts her health in jeopardy, he has to make it up to her. But how?
Boys NEED books where the HERO is someone respectable. Someone they can look up to. So much of what our children see/hear/witness today does not fall into the "Do unto others" category and that is NOT in our best interest in raising the kids of tomorrow.
Head out and grab this book! My son will be reading it and I look forward to more from Graham Salisbury.

“Meaningful fiction may just possibly urge kids to think about a few things while it entertains them. It can enlighten. It can suggest options and possible consequences. It can offer hope in an often frightening and uncertain world."—Graham Salisbury

  1. How serendipitous! I found this book while out browsing with the kiddos the other day, and added it to the list of books I want to get for Handsome Boy. Thanks for the review.
