Making Up Megaboy

Making Up Megaboy by Virginia Walter and Katrina Roeckelein

New York:  Delacorte Press

1998    63p.

This would be a good reluctant readers book—perhaps for murder mystery.

This was a depressing story about Robbie who on his 13th birthday takes his father’s gun and shoots a store owner for no apparent reason.  The story is written by people who witnessed or who knew the boy.  This appears that it may be a series.  The graphics are interesting and would appeal to reluctant readers.  It was a depressing story but captures senseless crimes of our time.
