Boy

Awhile back, I failed to write about a book that I finished. The title is "Boy" by Roald Dahl. He's the Willy Wonka guy. The story is his autobiography about his life growing up until he is in his 20s. It is a good look into the life of a boy who grew up in England. He went to boarding schools and was, in his words, quite an athlete. He was a fighter pilot in WWII. He had tons of adventures that helped to give him experiences to write on.
Overall, it was a good book with plenty of interesting experiences. I learned that I was really glad that I didn't go to a boarding school with him. His descriptions of life in those schools during that time sound horrible!

What age level is this book? Would middle school or high school kids like it, or is it just for little kids?

I think middle school kids would like it. High school...no. It gives a lot of stories about Roald's life growing up that he used in creating his books.
