This is another really fun book from one great author. Gary Paulsen is one of my brother's favorite authors, and guys really like his books. That doesn't mean he is only for boys and I have really liked many of his books. Although I never let a book being for boys stop me from reading it, this is definitely one that Matthew will like way more than me. The two reasons I picked this up are that it is short and it is on this year's YHBA list, and I am trying to read all of those books by April. Mudshark's life is kind of interesting, but it didn't really thrill me. I do wish I had his memory, though!!!!! I wonder what the guys over at http://www.guysread.com/, think about this book?
