WHEN CHARLIE MCBUTTON LOST POWER
by Suzanne Collins, Author of The Hunger Games
You know how he felt! You are been working on your computer and suddenly, ZAP! The electricity goes off and your computer screen goes blank. You wonder what you can do next? Electricity runs your life! But, now it's gone! It happened to Charlie McButton, too, and it became the day Charlie McButton lost power.
Power comes in many forms: power that runs machines like electrical power, gasoline power, nuclear power. But, there's also the power we have over how we respond to things that are happening inn our lives. When the storm knocked out electricity in Charlie's home, first his computer lost power. Then, Charlie lost power! He lost control!
Did Charlie ever regain his power? How could this catastrophe have ever had a good outcome? Sometimes good things DO come out of bad! Maybe Charlie discover something more important than computers...and electricity!
It is a great book for kids with anger issues and those addicted to computer games! They will see themselves in Charlie who becomes a great role model! Lessons from literature are like a gentle breeze that rather than a wild wind of orders!
