“An Arlington teenager attacked his mother over the weekend because she refused to let him use her Kindle, according to police. The Ballston 16-year-old assaulted his mother and hit her with a frying pan about 11 a.m. Saturday morning, police said. He has been charged with malicious wounding and destruction of property.”
If he's so eager to read an e-book that he'd try to bean his mom, maybe he needs to try a title like this one. Then again, looking at the kids on this cover... never mind.
