    The book Knots in My Yo-yo String by Jerry Spaniel is all about

    The book Knots in My Yo-yo String by Jerry Spaniel is all about the events he encountered. It tells the reader about his feelings, his reaction, and his thoughts. This book has a mix of high and low points. It gives the reader knowledge, and action. To me this book was different, but it was good. I would recommend this book to teens because it`s more about what it was like for him when he was a teen. There were two things that stood out to me, and they were the action which is described by descriptive language, and the lessons each section gives the reader about certain situations they may encounter as a teenager.
     In this book there was only one thing I did not like about it, and that was how he used so many subjects at once. However, that meant there wasn’t a dull moment in the book. I encourage teens to read this book because it gives you tips about situations you may get into. This book also shows what can happen to you when you do them. It doesn’t just teach about lessons. It teaches you about life, and that is why I highly recommend teens to take a couple minutes out of their day to sit down and read this book. If I had to choose I would give this book 3 stars. I gave it only 3 stars because it had action, descriptive language, and lessons. However, there are other ways the writer could have made this book better.

    OKAY, BUT NOT GREAT

    When I first heard about this book,I really wanted to read it. When, I got it out of the library, it wasn't that interesting, There aren;t that much interesing topics being talked about. He just talks about his neighborhood and baseball.Books like The Outsiders and The Pigman are more interesting.
