The Truth Of The Matter (The Homelanders #3)
This time I decided to find a book within the Youth Fiction genre, since I think it is so important for teens to develop a love of books that goes beyond all they have to read at school. I admit to being a bit dismayed to realize that I had picked up book #3 of a series, but there is more than enough background provided that it was not the stumbling block I feared it to be. You quickly get the general idea of what has gone on before and aren't left confused by what is happening.
Book Description (provided by publisher):
Charlie is certain that if he could just regain his memory, the chaos around him would make sense. But the truth of the matter is even more incredible than he could imagine.
Charlie West was an ordinary high school kid who went to bed one night and woke up in the clutches of terrorists and wanted by the police for murder. He also woke up with no memory of the events of the past year.
Now Charlie has found the one person who knows what happened . . . and who can help him remember. But remembering is painful--as well as dangerous--and figuring out what to do with this new knowledge may be Charlie's toughest challenge yet.
There is loads of excitement and plot twists and turns that is sure to capture the interest of a teen boy. That this book is faith-based and patriotic is a major plus, in my opinion. The fourth and final book in this series is not due out until next August, so this would be the perfect time to get The Truth Of The Matter, as well as the 2 previous books in the series: The Last Thing I Remember and The Long Way Home. This is a very good series to invest in for boys between the ages of 11 & 15.
