Or maybe it was disappointment since he was now faced with the fact that he didn’t have a “legit” excuse (wrong book purchased) to delay his reading assignment.
My soon to be high school freshman (boy) has two books on his summer reading list. The first required book for his theoology class is ”Dear Bully.”
And, I love this title for his English requirement: ”Guys Write for Guys Read.” :
