Author Focus: Gordon Korman

When my almost teen boys find an author they like AND I notice them reading more than one of his books, my read-radar goes way up. It hasn’t happened often, but it’s starting to more (yay!). So, when I noticed one reading Ungifted, and another reading Restart, followed by Slacker and a request for Korman's newest release, I figured it was time to see what this author was all about. 

A quick amazon search revealed that Gordon Korman is a prolific author. He has written over 85 middle grade and teen novels! And, once I started reading I discovered that I enjoyed his books almost as much as my boys. Most of his books are told from multiple character’s points of view (which my boys really like). And, they are funny, the plots are entertaining, and each book wraps up with the perfect dose of heart. 

Every one I’ve read so far, I would be quick to recommend.
