Friday 56 and Kevin's Point of View

"I'm an impressive kid," Tony answered with a confident grin. 
- p 55,  Kevin's Point of View by Del Shannon

Now I finally get to read a middle school book when Del Shannon offered his book Kevin's Point of View up for review!

Here's a quick overview:
To escape from his emotional turmoil, Kevin has developed his imagination into a dangerous foil and a powerful ally. While he antagonizes his mother and sister through his superhero antics on an average Wednesday ­morning, his ability to escape inside a character’s head becomes critical to his ­survival after his life is once-again turned upside down a year after his father’s death.
A child's imagination is such a wonderful thing, so this seems quite a fascinating read. And if I enjoy it, I am thinking of getting the daughter to read it too! TGIF!
