Tut: The Story of My Immortal Life
Tut is much like any other eighth grade student in Washington DC. He’s stuck doing a group project (about an artifact from a display of King Tut’s tomb treasures) with Henry Snider, a kid who tries way too hard to be Tut’s friend. He tries to avoid Seth, who seems to hate him, and he’s got a bit of a crush on the new girl, Tia. Yep, he’s just your average fourteen year old boy—just like he’s been for the past three thousand years.
Okay, so maybe he’s not exactly typical. He’s not just named after King Tut; he really is the ancient Boy King. He turns a little green when he’s nervous, and plants and beetles spring up wherever he goes. He’s waited on hand and foot by an army of shabti and his cat is really the god Horus. He’s been doing the immortal thing for a long, long time, but now it seems he might finally have a chance to get his revenge.
I’ve always been interested in King Tut, so the title held immediate appeal. Outside of some inconsistencies in the history, it was a captivating read. A good choice for mythology buffs looking for something new.
