What I’m reading Wednesday: The Disasters

I am constantly on the lookout for books to recommend to the reluctant readers I teach. Okay, that’s a lie. Well, a half truth. I do keep an ear out for books to recommend, but I really enjoy YA too. Sci fi YA, even better. Sci fi YA that shamelessly references many of my favorite shows? Could not get to it fast enough. The tag line is something about The Breakfast Club meets Guardians Of the Galaxy, but that really sells this book short. It’s got a multi-ethnic, multi-sexual cast of cast of believable teenagers fighting a realistic terrorist group in a run and gun adventure. Best of all (at least from my point of view) the heat level falls right about angsty longing with nothing graphic so I can recommend it to my high school students with out fearing their parents are going to come down on me to recommending a book with sex in it. If you are looking for a book for a teen (or for yourself), this is a great one.
