I've never laughed so much as I did while reading this book--it's Diary of  Wimpy Kid set in an 1800s lumber camp in rural Michigan, and perfect for young, reluctant readers (but also with a lot of jokes for their parents). Join Stan as he learns about true manliness, searches for the father he never knew, avoids the antics of his cousin Scary Geri, tries to fend off the suitors sniffing around his eligible mama, and avoids the wrath of his Granny (who is 99% evil). If this is not the funniest book you read I'll year, I'll buy you breakfast.

Maren Yearly doesn't just break hearts she devours them. This "cannibals in love" tale interlaces a compelling story with whip smart commentary on feminism, consumption, and "meat culture." Completely engrossing and unique, with a protagonist who manages to remain achingly sympathetic in spite of her diet, this book is like literary Stephen King; for readers who like their coming of age stories with a healthy side of people eating.
