Jasper Jones anyone?

What I’m reading this week…

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey

Jasper Jones was nominated for a Michael Printz Award, so why haven’t I heard anyone really talking about it?? Maybe I’m in a hole or something, but this book is good. I mean really good. Think Mark Twain goes down under. It is definitely not for those sensitive to violence, (I hope I’m not giving too much away), because in the first pages Charlie Bent is called out of his bedroom window in the middle of the night by the shady Jasper Jones, who has a reputation for trouble. What happens next is terrifying and confusing. Charlie follows his intuition and decides to trust the seemingly unreliable Jasper.
