A good book about peer pressure. A good read for young adolescence how not to follow the in crowd and just be yourself.
Cordon Bleu by Tony Angelo is a story for school aged children and YA. The positive message in this book is something all school children need to hear and think about. I think that reading about how the main character, Carl, deals with peer pressure will help the student to know how they can get through the mine fields at school as well.
Carl Donald Blue is the main character in "Cordon Bleu" and he learns a few life lessons along his trip in the tween stages of his life/schooling. The lessons come from his father and then his Aunt. The use of the father's toolbox to show Carl some of his life lessons is very poetic and spot on! This story, I believe, is aimed at youngsters and tweens. There are lessons to be learned within the realm of Carl's life that other children do not have the benefit of. The connection of badness and ill-will toward the people that live in the trailer park teaches Carl and his Aunt not to judge a book by its cover or, in this case, by where they live. Not all people are bad that live in a specific part of town that is infamous for trouble and drugs. 3 bookmarks Anastasia Cassella-Young, Reviewer Mind Fog Reviews
