The Charlatan's Boy by Jonathan Rogers

Grady takes you along for the ride as he and his huckster friend, Floyd, strike out to make it rich. Trouble is, they have to strike out again and again, because it seems those get-rich-quick ideas Floyd comes up with end mostly in a quick flight to another town, with the former townspeople in hot pursuit.  Interwoven into this great tale is the question of Grady's birth.  Where did he come from, and was he really found under a bush like Floyd says? A fun read for all ages. I read it in a day, and my twelve-year old daughter followed suit. Both of us enjoyed this not-so-serious read as we relaxed over Christmas vacation.  It leaves you waiting for Grady's next big adventure!

Waterbrook Multnomah provided me with a free copy of this book for review.
