Guys Write for Guys Read
Guys Write for Guys Read edited by Jon Scieszka
We read the short story, "My French Teacher Tried to Kill Me" by Anthony Horowitz. This story is from the book, Guys Write for Guys Read. If you hate long stories, but love an action book, this is the book for you.
The genre of this book is short story,and the subgenre is realistic fiction.
The setting of this story is a French teacher's classroom in the present day. The French teacher is actually an assassin stalking Anthony. Anthony has meddled in his affairs once too many times. Will Anthony survive when the French teacher takes this situation too far, or will the French teacher get his revenge?
This is an easy to read, but suspenseful short story. This is obviously a short story for a guy who likes action packed stories.
