The Bamboozlers

        I recommend reading The Bamboozlers by Michael de Guzman. Albert Rosegarden is one week into the new school year when he’s suspended for telling the teacher her head looked like the planet earth. “Only twelve years old and on your way to becoming a career criminal,” Mr. Grimes, the assistant principal, informs him. An idea that Albert categorically rejects. If you like realistic fiction you will like this should read this.
