Review: Spud

Spud is a hilarious coming of age novel about John ‘spud’ milton.
It is set in 1990 and Nelson Mandela just got released from prison. This makes his dad quite shaky and go completely bonkers. Spud’s family is already dysfunctional enough thanks to Wombat, his grandmother who goes on rants. One thing going great for Spud is that he got a scholarship to an elite boarding school.

Equipped with his diary, 13 yr. Spud is ready to take on his first year at boarding school in South Africa. Spud and his friends are later known as the “Crazy Eight” for their ventures throught school. Spud takes you on a ride you will never forget.

Spud was an absolute delight to read! I was laughing so hard throughout the book I could hardly put it down. John Van De Ruit wrote it with such wit and charm. All the characters brought so much to the story. I felt like I was one of the gang. I’m already aching for Van De Ruit to finsih writing the sequal! I already miss these characters. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a good laugh. It’d be hard to enjoy it without a good sense of humor. If you enjoyed The perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky I also recommend this.

Selling Books!

Ah yes. I need money. For real!

So, I have a ton of books I can sell. Some are even autographed. See how desperate?

I need to make some money. Most of the books are Young Adult Fiction.

I need to sell them ASAP. All are in Excellent condition unless stated otherwise. If your interested and would like pictures, please ask. I'm happy to provide them.

I am selling them cheaper than the original price and before I put up a price, I'd rather have you offer a price. I think the cheapest rate to send a book is like $2.31 So I'm going to need at least that much for shipping. I take Concealed Cash and Checks.

I send books after recieving & cashing payments. I will haggle!

email me at your_star67@yahoo.com for questions or reply! I prefer an email since I know I'll get it.
