Boys of Blur is N.D. Wilson's newest book. Charlie and his family attend a funeral for Coach Willie Wisdom. Then Charlie goes to the smoking mound where the sugar cane grows and meets his cousin Mack. While there, Charlie saw a man behind them. "Cotton" Mack (as he is known to his friends)  told his mom he hadn't seen anything. Charlie was mad that Cotton had lied. Later that night Cotton came back to take Charlie to the graveyard. They both saw a man digging up Coach Willie's grave. The next day the police came to ask questions about the graveyard. At church everyone saw that the Coach's grave was robbed.  There are also some other unexplained events that happen in Toper, Florida. 

 

I absolutely love this book. I wish more books had me on the edge of the seat waiting to turn the page. Even though you might not have heard of N.D. Wilson this ia definitely a book to check out. I would give this book 8.8 stars out of 10. This is a book that may confuse you at times. if you are wanting a summer read this is one for you. If you liked reading Holes and Maniac Magee by Louis Sachar then you are guaranteed to like Boys of Blur. It came out in April, 2014 and the purchase price is $16.99. You might find it cheaper in Amazon. I think this is a book for boys ages 9-13. If you like fantasy you will enjoy this. it is quite a read at 193 pages, just perfect for summer break. If you enjoy football as I do, this book is for you. If you are hot and need to cool down inside how about reading a couple pages of Boys of Blur> You can also read this at the pool to keep up your reading skills so your teacher won't have to work so hard in September.
