If you love the game read The Game
If you love the game, read The Game, by Walter Dean Meyers. An excellent book will not just tell you about basketball it will talk about life. I really connected with the author because the way he made Drew's life it was very similar to mind. Drew never stopped loving the game so that made me not stop loving the game. This book can teach a lot of people. How to live while playing basketball.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The main theme of this book is to live life to the fullest. You only get one life, so Drew did all he could to play ball. This book is an easy read but still a serious one. The Game is an excellent book to show young boys how life is in the real world. The Game can be being funny at times but also serious. I say it's serious because how Drew's life is how people treat him.
I would recommend this book to any person that play basketball. It shows how you have to be good on the court and off the court. Your social and school life effects on the court. So what ever you do always handle your business.

Heat by Jeff Kinney
Diary of a Wimpy Kid<BR/>Jeff Kinney<BR/>Abrams Books<BR/>Realistic Fiction<BR/><BR/> Hey you! Yeah you! Come over here and read this! It's about a gut busting book, meaning you'll bust your gut from laughing so hard. Jeff Kinney brought us a hilarious book called Diary of a Wimpy Kid. A boy named Greg Heffley wrote in a journal his mom bought for him. This book is the journal and is all about his experience in seventh grade. Greg Heffley goes through lots of fazes, meaning he loves to try a bunch of different things. His best friend's name is Rowley. They hang out eighty-five percent of the book. Greg and Rowley go through too much together. Like one time, there's this thing called the ¿cheese touch.¿ It's a piece of rotten cheese Greg put on a basketball court beside the school years ago. Whoever touches it has to try and touch someone else and give them the ¿cheese touch.¿ A bunch of teenagers were chasing Greg and Rowley on Halloween and they made Rowley eat the cheese! There are many more things that happen to them.<BR/> The characters in this book all have a different personality. Greg Heffley is adventurous because he likes to try different things, wimpy because he's not very strong at all, lazy because he's obsessed with video games, and funny because everything bad happens to him. Greg is important to this book because he's the main character and the whole book revolves around him. His older brother, Rodrick Heffley, is mean because he picks on Greg, he's annoying because he's not good at the drums and plays them in the garage with his awful band, he's lazy because he likes to lay around, and he's rude because he has no manners. Rodrick Heffley is important to this book because he's the main character's older brother. Greg Heffley's best friend, Rowley, is adventurous because he travels around the world every summer and school vacation, he's wimpy because he's not strong and can't take any pain at all, he's immature because he likes toddler toys, and he's just always happy. Rowley is important to this book because he's a main character himself and he's the main character, Greg's, best friend.<BR/> I love this book. I highly recommend this book to children of all ages with a sense of humor. I liked this book because of all the funny events, the whole book was funny, it wasn't hard to concentrate on because it was nice and simple (and funny!!), and it was hard to put down. Oh! By the way, before you start reading this book, call an ambulance or the paramedics so they're ready to replace your gut.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
