Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen
When the twelve-year-old narrator’s grandmother gives him a lawnmower, the youngster decides he might as well earn a few bucks. He meets Arnold, an investor with a cash-flow problem, who promises to buy stocks for him as payment for a freshly trimmed yard. With all the energy of a bull market, this brief farce has summer escapism written all over it.

Book pickup at Youth Services Desk begins Monday, March 20.
Meeting on Monday, April 17, 4:30 - 5:30 PM
