    "This book is worth more than a few fingers!!!" says a 6th grade student from Glendale, AZ Canned by Alex Shearer

    Canned by Alex Shearer
    Fergal Bamflied is a boy whose appearances would lead you to think he would have to have supreme knowledge in everything he does. Well, let's just say not all things are they seem. Not only that but his hobbies aren't your every-day ones either, see he collects cans...cans with no labels. (Not knowing what to expect what is contained in those metal mysteries.) But, he's just not the best with socializing or interacting with others so sharing his hobbies are out of the question. Which is all changed on one faithful day when a can changes all that.
    On one of Fergal's mother daily rounds to the super-market as usual Fergal found himself in the bargain-basket rummaging threw when he found the one. The label- less can that gleamed with light, deep inside he new it was the one with no doubt. When he shook it the contents side with a solid thud. But, what he didn't know was this move he was about to make would lead to great stories destiny would foretell. The scanner ran over the can and the groceries and placed the can in the plastic bag .The deed had been done. The curse had begun.
    It all started in March the year of 2000 or so in England. The novel's theme in the end was trust and friendship. I have never seen two friends risk their own lives for each-other in such a heart-warming manner. In my book it's number 1. If I where to rate this book if liked it or not I would give it a flat out yes. I say this because of the great story of friendship put to its limits fulfilling the limits of friendship. You come back looking at the world in a whole different way. I also say yes because of the great thought put into this story's whole plot. Oh, and here is a little shout out to Alex Shearer "You're awesome!!!" I mean the characters are so easy to relate to the way they lurk in the shadows at school not to mind their rank in what I call the "The School chain". I mean for me that's about the easiest thing to relate to (Personally I'm a real dork.).I mean once I was taking on the phone with my friend when she had said something that to her was no laughing manner and had not listened to a word she had said so I faked it by saying "Oh, that's awesome!!" There was a weird moment of silence and then I realized what I had done and blurted out with giggles. Also the interest in such unusual "things" like me and my collection of rocks. If this book is interesting to you I'd recommend "Star Girl "by Jerry Spinelli, "Stolen Children" by Peg Kehret.
