Feb. 2008 Issue Hot Scots, Castles, and Kilts
by Tammy Swoish
Danny Says:

Sixteen-year-old Sami has a lot to deal with when she moves with her mother to Scotland to turn a struggling family farm into a “tourist farm.” While her cousins want to tell her what a magical country Scotland is, Sami feels like a peasant without electricity. A group of eighth-grade girls I have been reading with likes this book because: (a) it is written like a diary; (b) there’s a ghost; and (c) it has a hot guy.

March 2012 Issue Left for Dead
by Pete Nelson
Danny Says:

What a cool story! Anyone who ever saw Jaws knows the true, harrowing story of the survivors of the U.S.S. Indianapolis who battled sharks in the South Pacific after their ship sank. What many – including me – did not know was that the navy blamed the captain of the ship, despite sailors’ pleas that their captain was not to blame. Fifty years later, an 11-year-old boy’s history project becomes a crusade to restore the captain’s name. This book had everything, and I honestly caught myself turning pages before students were ready. The kind of book every teacher needs to read to inspire her students to write.

Nov. 2011 Issue Zitface
by Emily Howse
Danny Says:

Acne is calamitous for just about every teenager, but for Olivia – an actress – it can spell the end of her career. Howse does a great job of addressing a number of teen issues without belittling them or judging them. Your girls, especially, will flock to this one.

July 2013 Issue Animals Matter
by Marc Bekoff
Danny Says:

I’m not someone who goes ga-ga for animals, but Bekoff’s touching story will stimulate wonderful discussions among your students about how important animals are…and our importance, as humans, in treating animals with compassion and respect.

Dec. 2004 Issue Hedonism Handbook, The, Mastering the Lost Arts of Leisure and Pleasure
by Michael Flocker
Danny Says:

I know a lot of stressed people who need to get off to a good start in 2005. This is the ultimate “anti” self-help book that celebrates butter and booze over diet and exercise. Read this book, and you just may live the life of Jack Nicholson instead of the dude in the “American Gothic” painting.

July 2003 Issue Born on the Fourth of July
by Ron Kovic
Danny Says:

Made into an Oliver Stone movie with Tom Cruise in 1989, the book is pretty grim. If you’re too lazy to read it now, check it out over Memorial Day next year. If you’re still too lazy, rent the video at Blockbuster.

Dec. 2006 Issue Owl in Love
by Patrice Kindl
Danny Says:

Let’s just say that this book is about a girl who becomes a “wereowl” at night. Yes, it is a funny book, and there is a lot more depth to it than that. My students, especially the girls, love this book.

April 2010 Issue Krybosian Stairpath, The
by S.R.R. Colvin
Danny Says:

Middle-school science teachers will especially appreciate this book about an 11-year-old girl whose family lives in an extraordinary underground house. Great way to excite students about geology. Fantasy that is scientifically-based!

Dec. 2010 Issue Christmas Bus, The
by Melody Carlson
Danny Says:

Teenagers, too, need to understand that the kindness of strangers is just one of the beauties to be learned at Christmas time. A beautiful story.

Jan. 2011 Issue Teen Angst? Nah…
by Ned Vizzini
Danny Says:

Speaking of geeks, this high school journal from a self-described geek makes for fun reading enjoyed by teen boys and girls.
