I'm going to say @alexisonpaper is in a great position to revive "Mildly Interesting" from its early grave.

Parts of it would be (the political/religious stuff). The main through line is adventure though, and this was in the precocious child category of fiction before YA blew up. I'm not very familiar with age 10 so maybe someone else can weigh in on that.I watched the first episode alone while he was at soccer practice to check it out (I liked it) with an eye toward whether Jack would enjoy it. I'm pretty sure he will. In fact, he came home as I was watching the very end and he was asking a lot of questions - so I think we'll be watching it together on Tuesday nights after his little sister's in bed.We've been reading Harry Potter together the last few years - adding a book when we feel he's ready for it. We're in Order of the Phoenix now and HDM seems like it might be just a small step beyond that book in terms of maturity. Does that sound about right?
Just wanted to share this thread from a friend of mine. If you're looking for a real mental health professional's assessment of the mass shootings = mental illness argument, this might help.
