Lost in the Sun by Lisa Graff. 298 p. Philomel Books/ Penguin Young Readers Group (USA), May 26, 2015. 9780399164064. (Arc courtesy of the publisher)
Publisher synopsis: From the author of A Tangle of Knots and Absolutely Almost, a touching story about a boy who won't let one tragic accident define him.
Page 56: "Sit your ass back down, Trent," Mr. Gorman told me. "I'm not even close to done."
He said that. He said "ass." I'm pretty sure teachers aren't supposed to say "ass."
"But the bell rang."
The look Mr. Gorman gave me then-well, I knew in that instant there was a reason he'd become a P.E. teacher. I bet he could've wrestled a bear and won.
I sat my ass back down.
I've already finished this and my review is scheduled to post this Sunday, one month before its release date of May 26. I adored this book and want to talk about it everywhere I can. It has gotten a ton of love already - four stars so far! I can't wait to book talk it to my kids.
