THE TRUE MEANING OF SMEKDAY by Adam Rex [Jun. 18th, 2014|03:56 pm]

I just finished reading a book about the displacement of indigenous peoples and genocide, with bits about the emotional impact of 9/11, the tendency of the people in power to try to ignore problems until it's too late, prejudice, and the loss of a parent.

It is really funny, written for nine-year-olds, and the DreamWorks movie adaptation is going to star Jim Parsons, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Steve Martin.

I'm not sure what else there is to say about it.
