Deadline by Chris Crutcher
This book gets a three point five star review from me...I liked it a lot. But I don't like football much at all, and it didn't explain on the cover that a huge part of the book is about football. I mean, I really don't like to listen to people talking about football, and I don't like to read about it. It makes it sound on the back like it's more about track, but it's not. It's about football. Now, if you like football, that's great. Read it. Because it's also a good book about death, so yeah...it's pretty good.
One thing I have to say about this book is that the parts that take place in the classroom are soooo unrealistic. If we talked to a teacher at our school the way that Ben talks to one of his, we'd get our asses sent straight to detention. Just sayin'. I mean, we'd get a warning, but those parts were just annoying. I mean...it was just stupid...teachers don't let you talk to them like that. Even if they are pushovers.
So would I reccomend it? Sure. Why not. It's pretty good. Go ahead and see what you think.
