Bibliophilia: Americus by M. K. Reed and Jonathan David Hill

Americus – M. K. Reed, Jonathan David Hill

An enjoyable book about the power of books. A boy entering high school is a fan of a series of fantasy books. A group of fanatical christians want to ban it from the library because of its “occult” overtones. A book about coming of age in a small town, the power of truth to overcome zealotry, how the arts can lift you up out of a crummy situation, and how adults can be a beneficial influence on a tween/teen struggling to find their way in the world.
