Bad Present by James Mendenhall is a well written story about a boy, falling in love, being part of a family, and being part of the bigger world around him. Mr. Mendenhall wrote wonderful and personable characters in an engaging story. I enjoyed the interactions between the characters as well as the history tidbits and Latin phrases used throughout the book. Mr. Mendenhall, also, includes the idea that 12 year olds (and girls!) can still like dinosaurs. This book is definitely a book to be read by young adults, or even together as a family.
