Question and Answer of the Week

Question of the Week was posted by junebugindeed who is teaching English in South Korea, and asked us to recommend books her high school students might enjoy that wouldn't be too frustrating for them to read. Full disclosure: 1) I used to teach in South Korea and 2) I'm super happy to see Answers used for a purpose like this.

Answer of the Week goes to In the Booley House for her answer to aslum's request for Carl Hiaasen read-alikes for a teen. She first identified the traits she used to create her list, and her book blurbs are excellent.

Both winners get the signed Unshelved collection of their choice.
