Book Review: The Cool Kids

The Cool Kids by Jason Pellegrini is a remarkable coming of age story that follows three young boys in the early 90s as they embark on a journey of friendship and growth akin to The Goonies or Stand By Me.

Book Review: Meddling Kids

I was introduced to Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero on Instagram many months ago and thought the cover was astounding.  I still think that.  It is definitely one of those books whose cover will lure you in.  A few friends read it and did not love it as much as I thought they would, so … Continue reading Book Review: Meddling Kids
