Previously on Bound: Good Books for Boys

I was afraid my list of good books for boys would be short. But it is sNOT!
This is just part of the list, more to come in later weeks!

First off, watch this truly fantastico trailer out for a book that looks to be a boatload of fun. And I'm sorry to say the book isn't available until SEPTEMBER. ARRGH!

But take heart, I've listed all of the authors that are contributing to this super compendium and you can read all their other titles until "Guys Read: Funny Business" comes out. (You may also get "Guys Write for Guys Read" as an apéritif.)


These authors are writing for all age ranges, so check that out before you go giving a kindergartner "Kick Me." Or do, and tell me how that goes.
