Coaltown Jesus by Ron Koertge - - Advisable

Koertge, Ron Coaltown Jesus, 122 pgs. Candlewick Press 2013. $16.99. Language: PG (4 swears 0Fs) Violence: G; Mature Content: PG.  

14-year-old Walker is having a difficult time dealing with the death of his older brother.  Then, Jesus visits the rest home Walker’s mother owns and hangs around with Walker for a day or two. Finally, someone he can confide in.  

This story in verse is not necessarily religious, and shouldn’t offend anyone.  If they liked “Shakespeare Bats Cleanup” they’ll like this one, too.  MS - ADVISABLE  Lisa Librarian
