THANK YOU, MRS. M
Genre: Young Adult, E-book
This is a sweet, funny and emotional tale. This modern take on Daddy-Long-Legs, by Jean Webster, has wonderful, fully developed characters. The brief mention of sexual and drug themes contributes to the gritty reality of the character's world. This incredible story will appeal to adult as well as young readers.
Benjamin Evans cares for his younger sister and brother but still finds some time for college. Then he receives an offer of a full scholarship, if he communicates with his anonymous benefactor via voice recording. Dubbing his patron Mrs. Moneybags, he proceeds to share private details of his life -- in addition to the required details about school. Soon Ben's curiosity about his sponsor increases, and he's determined to discover her identity. (JASMINEJADE.COM, dl $5.20, ISBN: 9781419921216, E-book, 12 and Up)
