    Mrs. Hill Period 2

    I recommend this book to people who enjoy books about a book of brothers who lost their mother. This book was very interesting yet sad at the same time. Because of the two boys who lost their mother, they went through a lot of hardships and they still survive. The characters are very close to each other and it truly shows how much family means to them.

    A Miracle of a Story

    Lafayette never knew his father because he died before he was even born. He¿s living everyday without ever meeting his father and then his mom dies he is distraught, having to live everyday without a father and having the pain of his mother dying in his mind every moment. Lafayette now lives with his two older brothers Ty¿ree and Charlie or as Lafayette would call him, Newcharlie. Lafayette and his brothers struggle everyday to keep their life going on the right road. With both of the boy¿s parents gone, Ty¿ree, who is the oldest son, has been granted Lafayette¿s and Charlie¿s guardian. Charlie has just returned home from a sentence at a juvenile facility. He is now back at home and has a completely different attitude towards Lafayette for reasons relating to his mother¿s death and refuses to speak to him, this is why Lafayette calls him Newcharlie. If the police he and Lafayette will be sent to their Aunt Cecile catches Charlie¿s down South. I liked in the book how the plot can relate to many people in actual life and how it is so realistic . Overall I would recommend this book for someone to read. I would recommend it to someone ages 14 and up. I think that it well written and that it is a very fast read. The book is a little bit mature for anyone under 14 in the way that it has some violence, gang life, and struggling through deaths which may be a little too much under that age to handle. I think that this book can relate very much to the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. If you want a book that has a sensitive caring kid with a rough life and an environment where in gangs, violence and staying by your family this book is perfect for you. After reading this book you will truly realize the importance of family and life itself.

    Miracle's Boys

    Have you ever thought about living on your own with no boost or support from your parents? Can you even imagine how that would make you feel? Well in Miracle's Boys by Jacqueline Woodson three brother's Lafayette, Tyree, and Charlie are suffering from the death of both of their parents. They are tying to live with the fact that they are no longer with them, but Lafayette the youngest brother wants to know every little detail about how their mother and father died. Charlie the middle brother just came back from Rahway's home for boys. Charlie treats Lafayette bad because he thinks Lafayette caused their mother to die. Tyree the oldest brother is taking care of Charlie and Lafayette on his own, without a mother or father Tyree can't go to college because he has to work full-time at his job to make more money for the family. I rate this book a 4 and I would recommend this book to everyone. It is a great book and will make you have more respect for your parents.

    These story is mainly about three brothers name Charlie,Ty'ree,and Lafayette.That nothing was the same for them because their parent had died.And if they shouldn't have died Charlie would still be the same old loving big brothernot a hostile stranger just back fron doing time at a correctional facility.Oldest brother Ty'ree would have gone to college,instead of having to work full time to support the three of them.And Lafayette wouldn't be so full of questions,like why mama had to die,why Charlie hates him so much now,and how they're all supposed to survive these times together when so much seems to be set againts them.Jacquline Woodson brings us the story of three remarkable young men-brothers who have only each other to rely on and must decide whether they'll work with that or let it tear them apart.

    great coming of age read

    Miracle's boys is a great tale about copping with the past to proceed with the present. Jacqueline Woodson captured the emotion of a young boy tying to deal with him emotions. It is an easy read. I recommend the book for all young adults.
