The Charlatan's Boy - Book Review

   A fiction fantasy novel, "The Charlatan's Boy" written by Jonathan Rogers is full of all kinds of ups and downs! This book wasn't one I was originally interested in, but received by accident and decided I would go ahead and read it. I will admit, it was a bit boring in the beginning for me because I am not very in to fictional fantasy type books, but I am glad I read it. It was a story about a boy named Grady, known as a "Feechie" who claimed to be one of the ugliest boys alive. He lived with a man named Floyd who was all the family he'd ever known. They together, put on acts of the Feechie, trying to make a living, convincing others to believe in it. Grady always wished he could find his real family, always on the look out for someone who was ugly as he was; And Floyd wasn't very respectful to him...Seeming to only use him for his own benefits. This book is full of 'roller coaster rides' leaving you wanting to know what happens next. It has a spectacular ending that I won't give away, so you need to read it to find out :)
