    I recommend you to read this book~

    This book has a lot of twists and turns and is a mystery waiting to be solved. This fast paced book intrigues the reader to solve what happened to David's mother. It was suspenseful and had an overall decent plot line. The frequent use of profanity in the book was a disappointment and the ending wasn't that impressive either. Other than that, the thriller of the book made me never put it down, and I had to finish it. This book is not hard to understand and is intended for young adults. If you want a book that keeps you guessing, then this is right for you.

    Too what lengths would you go if you lost your mom and suspected your dad?

    First Shot by Walter Sorrells is a great book for anyone that finds them selves constantly getting sucked into any late night crime show. It has a lot of twists and turns that keep you wondering what will happen next. The book starts out describing the life of David Crandall, the son of the dean of Arsenal. Arsenal is an extremely strict military school. Soon after the beginning of the book the murder mystery begins. After an inconclusive investigation of David's mothers murder, David takes the investigation into his own hands, along with his friend Misty, they embark on a journey of a lifetime. The journey takes them to the brink of the destruction of the family after finding out that his family has been partaking in embezzlement. After discovering that secret David begins to question his father's alibi. This only gives him more motivation to solve the mystery of who's the killer on campus. After finding the killer David then goes on the quest to figure out his motive, but that might have just been a question best left unanswered. It just goes to show you that just because someone says it is over, it does not mean you have to give up. You can always keep going if you set your mind to it. Overall the book was great. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. However the book does contain a lot of profanity. If you liked this book, I would highly recommend Dead or Alive by Tom Clancy.
