The Radioactive Boy Scout by Ken Silverstein


I recommend this book for: Adults and high school

The subtitle of this book is "The Frightening True Story of a Whiz Kid and His Homemade Nuclear Reactor," and that's exactly what it is . . . with some editorials on nuclear power, the Boy Scouts, and other related topics. I found it fairly enjoyable, but some of the scientific babblings were over my head, and it didn't fit the purpose I hoped it would (interesting non-fiction for middle schoolers). For older teens or adults with interest in science or weird news, this would be delightful.

No professional reviews, but here's Amazon!
