The Scar Boys
by Len Vlahos

The Scar Boys

Harry Jones got tragically scarred after being tied to a tree during a lightning storm where he was severely burned on his whole body. He was mentally scarred by all the bullying throughout his whole life. This story is about him growing up and using music as a way to belong after so many years as an outsider. This novel speaks to teen boys in their search for belonging, which is nice because there are so many books for teen girls and not so many for teen boys. I would recommend this book because it portrayed the importance of looking at things from all sides of a situation. This witty and inspirational book was a pleasure to read.
