The Best Man by Richard Peck

Best Man

This is a fun book! I would not normally read a “boy book” but this was a fun one. The guys in the main character’s life are his dad, his grandpa, his uncle, and his teacher. He had a year when he turned from a boy to a man (a “best man”!) when his class got a student teacher who is in the Army Reserves and is every nanny’s crush, hehe. I think it wasn’t too dramatic, and it was a realistic depiction of middle school life today. I will give more boy books a try if they are this fun.
