Jon Scieszka's Guys Read anthology series for tweens turns to nonfiction in its fifth volume, True Stories. The fifth installment in the Guys Read Library of Great Reading features ten stories that are 100% amazing, 100% adventurous, 100% unbelievable—and 100% true. A star-studded group of award-winning nonfiction authors and journalists provides something for every reader, all aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Compiled and edited by real-life literature legend Jon Scieszka, Guys Read: True Stories is a mind-blowing collection of essays, biographies, how-to guides, and more, all proving that the truth is most definitely out there.
Ideal for reluctant juvenile readers, this collection of short stories looks to engage in different narrative voices from some of the most talented children's and YA writers today. Complemented with fabulous illustrations, this midway genre between KidsLit and YA is a great read for kids between 8 and 12 years.
