Boys of Blur, by N.D. Wilson

7 Jul

My heart is racing because I just finished a really great book! Check out the cover of N. D. Wilson’s Boys of Blur:

Because there are two boys running on the cover, I thought this book was going to be about sports – but it’s not. It’s got magic, mystery, and zombies! The setting of this book is really unusual. It takes place in a fictional town in Florida. In this town, they grow sugar cane, and much of the story takes place in these sugar cane fields – “the muck.” Creepy!!

I love the way that N.D. Wilson writes – I was on the edge of my seat! If you are looking for a slightly scary, fast-paced read, this is the book snack for you!

    Creepy! I read a book earlier this summer about boys on the run ( specifically one boy named Salva ) … but there were no zombies. They were running through the African bush from a war in Sudan. Most of the children and women had hid in the village. They ran from the war and into a world full of danger. They walked for years through deserts, huge rivers, and other rough terrains, trying to get to safety. Would they ever be far enough away from war? If they did find safety, how would they find their families or a home? Find out when you read A Long Walk To Water by Linda Sue Park. It is really good!
