This week, the book I’m most looking forward to being released is:

Hoppergrass by Chris Carlton Brown
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
ISBN: 9780805088793
Publication Date: 4/14/2009
Pages: 240
Reading Level: Young Adult

Book Description (from Amazon):
It is 1969, and Bowser has arrived at The Hill, an institution for delinquent teenage boys. No one is doing much to protect the boys who find themselves there, but Bowser doesn’t expect to stay long. He thinks he might be crazy (and others agree), so he’ll probably be off to the nuthouse soon. When one of the boys is killed in an accident and it looks like Bowser’s friend Nose is going to be made a scapegoat for the death, it’s up to Bowser, crazy or not, to stand up for the truth. With language that combines the gritty and the truly graceful, Chris Carlton Brown’s debut novel is heartbreaking and unforgettable.

About the Author (from Amazon):

Chris Carlton Brown was a reporter at the Richmond New Leader, built a business career in East Asia, and currently teaches reading to children with learning disabilities. He lives in Richmond, Virginia, with his wife and sons.
