    I read the book called Crunch Time by Mariah Fredricks. Out of five stars I would give this book a total of three. It was an ok book overall. I only liked it as much as I did because I really enjoy reading. It was on and off and didn¿t keep my interest as well as it could of. Some parts were nice while others became tedious. Crunch Time is a group of four people Leo, Max, Jane, and Daisy who all agree to basically on one thing they all hate the SATs. After ditching their SAT prep class, they decide, to please their parents, to create their own study group. Everyone wants to do really good so they can make it into an Ivy League college. After weeks of practicing, getting to know each other and a few practice SAT tests they finally take the big test. Afterwards when everyone is relieved, or dissatisfied, with their scores, they learn the horrific truth someone paid somebody else to take the SAT test for them! This could ruin the Dewey High School reputation. Any college in their right mind wouldn¿t want to accept a possible cheater in their prided school. Everyone begins to point fingers and make conclusions on who the culprit is. Is anybody right? Is it the obvious or not so obvious? Read the book to find out and discover the truth. There were a few things that I really liked about the book but more that I disliked. To start with, the story was told in four points of view by the main characters. I mean that every so often the first person narrative would switch and you would be in that persons mind over everything that happened in the book. This made it really unique and interesting. Also the book kind of explained the thinking and life of a sophomore in high school. To go along with the good parts there has to be bad and unfortunately there is a few. There was a very significant time change and I barely caught on. That made it kind of hard to follow along. Also, it seemed as if the author forgot about what she was writing and stretched out that made it long and boring. The mystery part didn¿t even come until over half-way through the book. Overall I have read better and worse books. It was a fairly good book and I recommend you should give it a try.
