Wing Nut by M.J. Auch

This book is about a 12-year-old boy, Grady, and his mother, Lila, finally finding the perfect job after searching for work since Grady was younger. Or so they thought. Charlie, the crazy old man they helped cook and clean for, hadn’t been too much trouble and had bonded easily with Grady. They both helped a group of Purple Martin birds nest. However some things happen that might make them leave Charlie’s for good.

I liked this book mainly because it was informational as well as entertaining. It was fictional; however learning about Purple Martins was interesting.
