Guys Read Other Worlds

Scieszka, Jon ed. Guys Read Other Worlds.  NY: Walden Pond Press, c2013.  331 pages.

This is a collection of short stories written by some of the most famous young adult writers.  While the stories are meant to appeal to boys, any fan of science fiction (although this book was described as "speculative fiction") will enjoy them.  Some of the authors include Rick Riordan, Neal Shusterman, Kenneth Oppel and even Ray Bradbury.  

From the comic story called Rise of the Roboshoes to the more chilling space travel story called The Dirt on our Shoes, these stories challenge your imagination and make you wonder "what if...."
Recommended for grades 7 and up.  Review by Mrs. Belknap
