Great Realistic Read for High School 
Great new book for HS readers
I'm going to try to get back in the habit of posting at least once a week. The beginning of the year is always so busy! I haven't shared a favorite high school book for awhile, so I'm going to introduce this excellent book. I had read a few positive reviews of The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner, and although I knew it was realistic fiction from the reviews, the title kept making me think it was fantasy... there are so many kings, queens, and princesses in all those fantasy series! Anyway, this is definitely realistic fiction, not fantasy,(BTW, the title comes from the fact that main character Dill's father is a snake-handling preacher.) but I think regardless of favorite genre this profound story of friendship and growing up should attract many readers. Dill, Lydia, and Travis haven't always had much in their small Tennessee town, but they've always had each other. As their senior year of high school begins, Dill is both excited for a future beyond his small town and dreading the distance life after high school will bring to the three friends. As they each dream of what comes next, they have to deal with the reality of now which includes struggles with poverty, abuse, and an unexpected tragedy. If this sounds dark, sometimes it is, but it is also hopeful and beautifully written. The small town setting and deep friendships should make this a book to which many Archie readers can relate.

I have discovered that smart real estate agents everywhere you go are starting to warm up to FSBO Advertising. They are noticing that it’s more than simply placing a sign post in the front property. It’s really concerning building interactions with these dealers who sooner or later will become buyers. So, whenever you give your time and efforts to helping these vendors go it alone – the “Law of Reciprocity” kicks in. Interesting blog post.
