Mrs. Basile

This summer, Mrs. Basile read Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe. She really liked how it resembled a good high school movie. 

“But [the book] gave me an opportunity to also bring in my own perception of how everything looked, felt, was, within the book.” 

 Mrs. Basile would highly recommend it to students. 

“I really liked the way these characters talk. I always look for young adult literature where the dialogue is really authentic to how teenagers actually communicate. And the protagonist in this one has this very dry sense of humor. That is a little bit unsettling at times but also is refreshing to have kind of a anti-hero at the at the helm of a story like this.”
