Swear to Howdy
The book, Swear to Howdy by: Wendelin Van Draanen is a really good read for everyone. It made look like a child¿s book and an easy read, but it is really a great book worth reading. It is about to boys who live next door and become best friends. When ever they do something wrong they swear to howdy and smash their fists together. They have many adventures, which no one ends up knowing about until their last adventure where something goes horribly wrong. The author was very descriptive and made me want to keep reading more. The ending of this book was not the best. It doesn¿t tell about the families feeling about each other witch makes it sound unfinished. But other then the end, the story is very well written and descriptive. I loved it and I recommend it to every one who can enjoy a good book.

This book is sad yet happy too,it is a very intense novel. ¿Swear to Howdy¿ has two main characters, Joey and Russell. Throughout the novel it tells about all the secrets and daring stunts they do. It is called ¿Swear to Howdy¿ because every time Joey and Russell commit to keeping a secret one of the two boys says, ¿you swear to howdy you want tell.¿ Then they punch fists and swap blood. They are obviously best friends other wise they wouldn¿t do the stuff they do. Together they kill squirrels and cats, catch toad, go plinking at cans, and get in terrible situations. Russell is new in tow, so Joey gives him the nick name, Rusty-boy. Russell has a little sister named Rhonda. Joey has two sisters named Amanda Jane and Sissy. Joey¿s dad is nice or can be blowin¿ up mean. But Russell and Joey get through life together. I recommend this book to boys, girls, and people of all ages. I love this book and I hope I will read it again some other time.
