This YA debut is by one of our bookselling
colleagues. Len worked for many years at the American Booksellers Assn.,
and then for the Book Industry Study Group. He’s a really nice guy, and
that guaranteed booksellers everywhere would read his book.
What wasn’t guaranteed, though, was that we’d all
love it and be excited to tell teen and adult readers that they will, too…but
that’s just what happened.
Scar Boys is written as a protracted college admission essay by
Harbinger Jones – a boy who was almost struck by lightning when he was eight
and has spent the past 10 years being bullied and marginalized for his horrific
scars. Until his one good friend, John, suggests they start a band.
This book is for
every kid who has felt left out, who has had doubts about the future, who has
dreamed of playing in a band or has related to music in some way.
Have I left anyone out? Nope, I think not…in essence, Scar Boys is a deeply human book that will
touch everyone, and I’m excited to
be sharing it with you!
