    Why you should read Schooled.

    The book "Schooled" is about a boy, Lionel Shepard, who has a dream of becoming a NBA star. Friends, family and teachers constantly pressure him. Because he is under a lot of pressure, he will make bad decisions. This book is great for teenagers in junior high and high school. It is definitely a relatable book because it deals with a lot of things that teenagers deal with. I recommend that you read this book.

      Lionel Shephard is in deep trouble, he wants to play basketbal

      Lionel Shephard is in deep trouble, he wants to play basketball but his dad wants him to study and get good grades. But the problem is he can hardly read or write, and all he wants to do is play basketball. The Authors purpose of this book is to tell about a student that doesn’t like school and likes basketball. I think he is trying to show a regular teenagers life who don’t like school but like to play a sport. 




     Schooled is a series called Bluford Series where it tells about real life problems with everyone at Bluford High School. In this book Lionel Shephard is making bad grades and is failing all of his classes, and with his mom away for two years and his dad hardly at home he doesn't know where to turn for help. He decided to move out so he can drop out of school because he doesn’t know how to do any of the work. All he thinks about is basketball.




     I think this book achieved its purpose because it was showing a person who doesn’t care about his grades and likes to play a sport. Many students feel the same way as Lionel about school so I think they would be able to relate to this book in a very positive way. This book compares to all of the other Bluford Series in the same way because all of the students have a serious situation that they have to deal with.




      I would definitely recommend this book because this book isn't just a regular book it brings the book to life in so many ways. This book is made for a teenager that struggles and tries to find his/her way out of their situation, like in this book Lionel is asked to read a poem to the class and he can’t read the words and he doesn't know how to write but he wants to play basketball and in order for him to do that he needs good grades.

    GREAT BOOK!!!!!!!!

    Imagine a High School student who can barely read, his teachers don't know if they should pass him and that means he won't be able to play basketball. Joining the NBA has been Michael's dream ever since he can remember, but his dad thinks basketball is a waste of time and no one believes in him. Michael is lost and has nowhere to turn to. I definitely recommend this book because you will never want to put the book down and it is a light but interesting read!

    schooled is a very great book

    what would you do if your friend was a high school drop out and he wanted you to be the same but you had big dreams of playing in the NBA and had skills to do it? I like that the book hit home for me and its real life not just what people want to imagine life being like. Some of the chacters in this book are Lionel, which is the main chacter. Lionel is a very good basketball player and wants to join the NBA . I recommend you buying this book if you like basketball and real life situations .
