Lawn Boy by Gary Paulsen
Lawn Boy is a story about how one boy's summer lawn mowing business turned grass into cash.
When a 12-year-old boy's grandma gives him an old lawn mower for his birthday, he decides to start a lawn mowing business. Because what else are you supposed to do with a lawn mower? By the end of each week he makes five-hundred dollars. Lucky for him, one of his first clients is a stockbroker who offers to help him learn all there is to know about business, including investing-which can make a boy rich. But all that money can get trouble involved too. Big trouble.
Lawn Boy is a quick read, I finished it within an hour. I'm positive you'll love this funny book as much as I did.
