A PAULSEN OLDIE BUT STILL A GOODIE
Harris and Me by Gary Paulsen
This summer, he'll be living with the Larsons, distant relatives of his, on their farm. Every so often, he packs up and get sent off to live with some relative or other due to the fact that his parents are drunks or "puke drunks" as his cousin Harris puts it. living on the farm with foul mouth, mischievous cousin who gets him into all kinds of hilarious scrapes - playing cowboys and Indians with the farm animals, being charged by the farm's bull, kicked unconscious in the head while milking the cow.
A funny and unforgettable summer for Harris and any reader in 4th grade and up.
