The Gospel According to Larry
Do you want an interesting teen novel? Then The Gospel According to Larry, by Janet Tashjian may be just right for you. This is the story of Josh Swenson - age 17 - and his plan to contribute and make the world a better place. He does this through a website he creates - undercover, of course - and posts daily "sermons" on materialism and anticonsumerism. He takes the world by storm and becomes a huge media sensation. No one knows its him - not even his best friend, Beth. When he becomes exposed though, he needs a whole new plan to escape the sensationalism of his life. Teens will enjoy this one - and it does challenge them to think of how they can make an impact on the world. Even has a reader's group discussion guide.
