Wilson, N.D. Boys of Blur. Random House, 2014. $16.99 ISBN 9780449816738 195pgs. Ages 11 and up, P7Q8.

Charlie’s stepfather Prester Mack wants to move back to his hometown Taper, where he will be the head football coach. Taper is a town known for its football team, sugarcane, and muck. Taper is not what it seems. There is an evil that roams the muck and Charlie must help destroy it before it destroys his family and the town. This is a great book about family and friendship.   Charlie learns that family doesn’t need to necessarily be about blood, but about belonging to one another. Bravery and forgiveness are also themes in this book. June 2014 review by Jo Train.
