How to Make Friends and Monsters by Howard Boward with a Little Help from Ron BatesHoward Boward (who co-wrote this book with Ron Bates) isn’t having the easiest time making friends in middle school. The easiest thing to do for Howard (who is a science genius, by the way) is to ‘make’ a friend with putty, DNA, and some chemicals. So he does. And it turns out that this friend (Franklin) is actually pretty cool in school. Franklin helps Howard become more ‘cool.’ And the How to Make Friends and Monsters ends happily ever after.

Nah, I’m just kidding, there’s probably a bunch of hi-jinx, craziness and trouble that can’t be solved by literally ‘creating’ your own friend. All of that happens somewhere throughout these 224 pages of humor that we’ll be able to read this summer.
