The next day he spent his lawn-mowing money on a new shirt, and, with a pocketknife, scooped the moons of dirt from under his fingernails.
In this passage from his book Johnny Got His Gun, Trumbo shares the developing relationship between a young man and his father as they grow older. As the son transitions from childhood to young adulthood, he begins to explore the world without his father by his side.

Along with being tolerant and open minded, Nick is also very quiet and because of this he does not like to participate much in a lot of the events in the story, instead he watches what goes on and describes what he sees.
Unwind by Neal Shusterman -a New York Times Bestselling Author of The Schwa Was Here- is an interesting read. It’s about a boy, Connor, whose parents want to have him unwound.
