Hi , I am Ella, dreamer, ski racer, writer, and rock climber. Ella lives in SV, Idaho with her mom, dad, cat, dog, gecko, and fish.
For my Book Beat review, I read The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle by Leslie Connor.
Mason Buttle is a big sweaty boy. He doesn’t seem intelligent but he hides many secrets. His life is full of mystery.
His best friend, Benny, showed up dead in the Buttle family orchard just a year before the story takes place.
Mason is made fun of at school and receives many taunts because of his near illiteracy. The only safe place Mason has is the guidance counselor’s office, the SWOOF. There he starts working on the dragon, a device which turns his words into writing to explain his life story.
This is valuable to the police officer that comes to his house and questions Mason weekly, still trying to discover what happened to Benny. . .
