Dead Boy, by Laurel Gale, is a combination of adventure, bravery, and friendship. It may seem like your typical story of a middle school boy, except this middle school boy is dead! Crow Darlingson stinks. He has maggots crawling in and out of his body. His body parts fall off easily, and are literally hanging from threads attaching them to his body. Imagine if every so often, you had to ask your mom to sew on your arm, or leg! Crow hardly goes anywhere, and he barely ever goes outside! He longs for a friend, and when a new neighbor moves in next door, they end up becoming friends! They go through adventures facing bullies, and a mysterious creature! For those that enjoy adventure, and humor, Dead Boy is the book for you! I thought this book was amazing, and I would rate it as a 10 out of 10!
