Words We Don’t Say by K.J. Reilly
Joel has it all figured out. For example, he’s figured out that the school could actually save money by buying all the juniors and seniors cars and it could be less than the annual transportation budget. Or maybe motorcycles if the cars turn out to be too expensive. He also knows how to really let people know how he feels by writing text messages to them and then, just not sending them. Yup, he has his whole life figured out, for sure. Or maybe not. Most assuredly not. In fact, Joel is pretty messed up.
Recommended for grades 8 and up. There are copious amounts of swear words in this book, all, in this reviewers opinion, used completely authentically. However, if that is something that concerns you, you have been told!
No swear words are in this podcast however, but the word Bleeping has been substituted for one.
