Book Review: Selo by Doug Setter


“Les Kingsley is sixteen, skinny and scared. He spends his days trying to get through life while dodging bullies at work, school and home. Curiosity and kindness lead him to help a patient, who is not entirely what he seems to be. A friendship develops and Les discovers strength, courage and wealth that he never knew before. But, the new mentorship brings greater risks than high school bullies. Les soon becomes a target on both sides of the law and is forced to make hard decisions about right, wrong, family and loyalty.”

I wanted to share a great book with you it is called “Selo” by Doug Setter and it is about a young man dealing with bullying and the general struggles of being a teen (see blurb above).

I think this book would be a great tool for teachers or even parents/caregivers to start discussions about bullying. The simple down to earth language would be good for teenagers and is not too hard of a read. This would best for 13 and up as there is some strong language and scenes of violence.

Be sure to check out this relevant coming of age story.
