Today is Operation Teen Book Drop. My fellow Crow, Shannon, wrote an awesome blog post explaining all about it here. But basically, a whole mess of people got together to drop off teen books in various locations.
I chose to drop two. One thats more guy oriented and one that might lean more girl. However, both are suitable for either gender, but I like people to have choices. Anyway, I chose LIAR and ROCKET BOYS. LIAR was one of my favorite books last year. Best use of an unreliable narrator that I’ve seen in a long time. And ROCKET BOYS is a true tale of Homer Hickham Jr. He was a boy from a coal mining town who, along with his friends, learned how to build rockets. It’s a truly inspiring book.
I left both of these books at my local Starbucks. It’s near Jupiter High School and often where they congregate after classes let out.
Hopefully these books will find loving homes. Tell me about your book drops!
