REVIEW: Duck Boy

By Bill Bunn
 BitingDuck Press
October 2012
ISBN-10: 1938463609
 ISBN-13: 978-1938463600

For the past 2 years Steve Best’s life has been nothing like it used to be, not since his mom disappeared .  These days his dad barely get by; emotionally or physically.  School is a veritable hell, where he has been nicknamed “Duck Boy” for being a nice guy and trying to save a duck stuck in  frozen pond near his school.

Christmas is coming and it looks like it’s going to be another crappy year.  Steve’s dad has to go on a business trip for work OVER the holiday.  So, Steve gets sent to his aunts house.  To say she is a little nutty is and understatement.  The woman carries around her dead sons ashes in a box and talks to them and even decides to wrap them up for the holiday so that he is “festive” for the occasion.

She is also very committed to finding his mother.  She tells Steve that his mother would never left him and his father willingly.  She tells him that his mother was into Alchemy and that she had been studying the practice for quite some time.  She thinks somehow this practice is related to her disappearance

Steve’s Aunt also tells him that she too practices Alchemy and would like to show him the ropes so that he can help in tracking down his mother.  He thinks she is off her rocker, but agrees to be open to her teachings.

What ensues  is a pretty epic adventure into another world and  another more brave side of himself that he never knew was there.

Books To Be Reviewed!

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all well and gearing up for Halloween! I haven't decided myself if I am going to dress up or anything, but my bosses at the bookstore have been bouncing around the idea of dressing me up like Dalek from Dr. Who.  We have been real busy at the store though so finding the time to make it could be a bit of a challenge.

I have managed to fit in some reading however and here is my list of books I will be posting reviews for in the coming days!

Abandon Book 2: Underworld
By Meg Cabot

Blue Bloods Book 1

Thumped (sequel to Bumped)
