As a high school teacher, I see so many young men drifting through the day with no guidance from a father figure. For 15-year-old Mike, who lost his father in Afghanistan, daily life is its own struggle. Bullies, a lack of self-confidence, no clear path in life has left Mike feeling confused until letters from his dead father arrive and show Mike that life isn't what he thought. With a set of missions (such as to ask a girl out), Mike now has a clear goal. Wanting to play football, Mike must move past his mother's disapproval and find his own identity. Inspiring and powerful, Reedy gives all young men hope.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The book, If You’re Reading This, took on a kind of story that has not been used often. It was creative how the book channeled feelings through a newfound connection, from the son of a dead soldier to his father’s messages. Then the notes lead him to a different life that unravels as you progress through the story. The conflicts come in once the rapidly created changes start to come back at him. Choices and even more changes are made as this creative and deeply rooted story finishes up. It’s a book that I really enjoyed and think people who appreciate well-made books might like.

This novel is quite thought-provoking. It helped me remember that we have many families who have sacrificed and many more who continue to sacrifice so we can enjoy watching our children grow up. The novel does not lean left or right, but, instead highlights the human emotions that are not always obvious. Additionally, I hope more people will read this novel so we can begin to focus on the heroes in our everyday lives as well as the ones who have gone before us. If You're Reading This is ideal for families, but any teenager who feels alone or who may feel that he or she needs some guidance during a challenging time can draw some level of strength from this novel. All middle schools and high schools should invest in a copy.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
