    Drug Addict Forced To Stop the Addiction

    In the book Bottled Up there is a kid named Phillip Downs, but he likes to be called Pip. Pip has an addiction to marijuana. He was forced to set up an appointment with a counselor because he was getting in trouble in school and it was the only way for his dad not to know. After school he forgot to call the counselor. When he got home his dad yelled at him to clean the garage. His dad was and alcoholic and his parents fought all the time. Instead of cleaning the garage Pip went to a party. At the party a fight started and Pip¿s friend pulled a knife out so Johnny 'another one of Pip¿s friends' jumped on the other guy and Pip took the knife from his friend and threw it into a hole. Cops came to the party and stopped the fight. Pip and his friends were taken home by the police. The next morning he got up and had to walk his little brother to school. His little brother, Mikey, asked him a ton of questions on the way there. When Pip got to school he was sent to the principal¿s office. The principal forced him to make the appointment. After school he walked Mikey to t-ball practice, and then went to the counselors. When he got home his dad chased him and Mikey to the garage to clean it. It was the middle of the night and there dad was drunk. The next day Pip¿s little brother got a concussion so Pip had to rush home and tell his father. The day after that incident he ate lunch with a girl that he really liked. After all this happens he decides to talk with his father. Pip asked his father for fifty dollars for a driving lesson. His father told Pip a story about how he hated his father but loved him to death. Then Pip showed him a picture of them when he was younger. After that his dad gave him fifty dollars. If you liked what you read then you should check this book out. This book really started off with a bang. But I think it could have a little more internal conflict. Other than that the book was great. I can relate to Pip in a couple of ways. My friends try to make me do stuff and sometimes I do it. But other times I say no because I don¿t want to get in trouble or anything. Also like Pip my little brother asks me everything. This book sort of reminds me of Juvies because Juvies sends kids to rehab and Pip has to try to stop getting in trouble or he is going to be sent to rehab.

    I Want A Day Off From Everything

    I really loved this book Bottled Up. It was very interesting. It was about a boy named 'pip'. He was skipping school and getting high.Then he finally gets caught and needs to talk to someone about his problems or he gets kicked out of school. He is only scared because of his dad. I loved this book it makes you think. The only thing i didnt like about it was the ending.It didnt say what happened really at the end.I Recommended this to kids my age.
