That was great...
This book is full of stories that are irony and also true. Most of them were similar to the ones that I read before but there was something always odd and unexpected. ¡®Doing Time¡¯ is about hours. It made me want to go over to Lee High School get involved with friends there volunteering for others. I would definitely recommend to the others who don¡¯t want to worry about which types of book they want to read because this book is related to our real lives and it shows Rob Thomas¡¯s thoughtful comments from each characters. Again, I was reading stories about volunteer hours and everyone knows they need those to get into the colleges they want to go. There was this high school girl and she was part of a team that delivers stuffs. On the Christmas day, she was delivering boxes of can foods and some small furniture to the neighbors who do not have a food to celebrate their own holidays. But by this chance to meet other people, she realized something that she should have not known. I kept on reading this story to the end and I said, ¡°Yeah, I¡®d be crying so hard in my mind if it was me.¡± I remember one of the stories about this boy named Randall. He was a normal kid and one day, his mom introduced Preston, who was a very popular football player, to her son. Preston was a cool guy helping Randall out with his talented football skills. And then all of a sudden I started thinking Randall is a lucky boy who has a tutor instead of his own big brother. I just remember this story by these characters but also there was unexpected ending which kept me still. I was very amazed in a way of this story¡¯s ending that Rob Thomas had ended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As usual, Rob Thomas does not disappoint. This witty, satirical and poignantly painful depiction of a different assortment of individuals' reactions to forced community service cuts deeply to the heart of American complacency.Was this review helpful?
