Alabama Moon is great book written by an Alabama author! It is a wonderful book to have reluctant boy readers read to try to hook them into enjoying reading! This is about a boy and his father who live out in the woods trying to escape the authorities. It is all about surviving! I would have boys read it as a book study together, having them come up with a project to do after they completed the text. There is some inappropriate language in it, so I would discuss this with students and their parents prior to reading it. This is a good book for student in late elementary and early middle school to read (4th, 5th, and 6th graders).
