You're missing

" Coffee cups on the counter, jackets on the chair
Papers on the doorstep, you're not there
Everything is everything
Everything is everything
But you're missing" -

Man's World

For those of you with access to Novelist, my October column"Man's World" is up. In these five young adult novels, male teenage protagonists struggle with the most basic of questions: what is it to be a man? The books are:
  • Bang! By Sharon Flake
  • Head Lock by Joyce Sweeney
  • King Dork by Frank Portman
  • Storky by Debra Garfinkle
  • Rooftop by Paul Volponi
