My Pick of the Week: May 22-27

My pick this week is The Seventeenth Swap by Eloise McGraw.


I consider this book a much underrated and underappreciated classic. Originally published in 1986, it seems to have fizzled out. I had to dig around on Amazon to find a good link for you guys, and I couldn’t find it on Audible at all. Regardless, I highly recommend it. The Seventeenth Swap is a touching coming-of-age story about Eric Green, a young teen who takes care of a disabled boy and really wants to be able to buy the boy a pair of boots he wants. The story is all about how Eric uses resourcefulness and entrepreneurship to “trade up” to the boots, discovering things about himself along the way.

Buy on Amazon, since I can’t find it on Audible. 😦

    This definitely is a fantastic book! I enjoyed reading it aloud to my kids after my oldest daughter suggested it. Very good! Thanks! I enjoy your blog and the various styles of posts you make, but I particularly look forward to seeing what you’ll choose for your Pick of the Week each week. Keep it up!!
