Pucker by Melanie Gideon - NO

Gideon, Melanie Pucker, 273 p. Penguin Putnam, 2006.


Thomas and his mother fled their world nine years earlier - after Thomas was badly burnt in a fire. Even without her Seerskin, Michael's mother has visions which help pay their way on Earth. Now, though, she will die without the skin - the visions are driving her insane. So Thomas undertakes the journey back to Isaura, knowing that he will be healed, but also that he must give up everything to return to save his mother.

I was faked out by the title and the cover, but still enjoyed the reading. The book has a few swear words (but one of them is "F") and a couple of breast mentions (which TOTALLY could have been left out), which leaves this out of the middle school definitely - you high school people will have to choose for yourselves. Should be a big hit in the public library, though.
