Next week: ‘Anyway*’

Next week

Anyway* by Arthur Salm. Ages 8 to 12. The asterisk in the title says, “A story about me, with 138 footnotes, 27 exaggerations and 1 plate of spaghetti.” What this story is really about is a boy who takes advantage of going away to camp to assume another identity — Mad Max, a wild and reckless guy. Everything about this book screams summer fun.
