BZRK is the title of a new book by Michael Grant. This link will take you to his bio, which pretty much sums up what you need to know about him and will probably make you laugh. If his name sounds familiar, you have probably read the Animorphs books that he wrote with his wife, author K.A. Applegate.
He wrote the Gone series as well, and the newest book in that series, Fear, which comes out on April 3.
My students, known as Angel Potatoes, and I are big fans of Michael Grant.
His book BZRK has been out for about a month.
The thing about this book is that you will read it with your mouth hanging open pretty much the whole time.
Nanotechnology takes on new, real, raw meaning.
One of my students bought a copy because my copy was checked out.
She came in with her hair on fire.
Here is our conversation.
Student: "My eyes! My eyes!"
Me: "I know! I think mascara will help protect them. And the Meat!"
We nod and shudder in a happy way.
And another student says, "Wait, what book is this?"
Student tries to describe BZRK. The other student gets on the waiting list for the book.
It doesn't take a whole lot to make my day.
