Mr. 60% by Clete Smith - NO

Smith, Clete Barrett Mr. 60%, 182 pgs. Crown Books (Random House), 2017. Language – R (126 swears, 19 “f”), Mature Content – PG13 (for innuendo and crude comments); Violence – PG;

Matt is only in school to make money from selling drugs and to get a high school diploma. Outside of school, Matt takes care of Uncle Jack. With Uncle Jack dying, Matt will do anything to make sure that Jack has everything he needs and stays comfortable, but living life that close to the end is not easy when you’re alone.

Overall, I got some good takeaways from reading Matt’s story about how no man is an island and the power of kindness—but none of that stops unpleasant things from happening. Those messages, though, are hidden behind crass language that I did not care to read. Take the lessons learned, but you don’t have to read this book.

HS – NO. Reviewer: Carolina Herdegen
