The Boy Who Drank Too Much
In Shep Greene's The Boy Who Drank Too Much, Buff Saunders has a hard time finding friends in his high school. He's bigger than the other kids and he moved to town from Canada. Most people think he's weird, but none can deny his hockey skills. Buff is third string on his hockey team, not because of talent, but because his coach doesn't like his attitude. Buff's father, Mr. Saunders, a hockey star in Canada, really wants Buff to take on a professional hockey career. So much so, that when the two of them try to have a conversation about Buff not wanting to play anymore, Mr. Saunders beats him. He beats him because he's drunk. This book really shows how excessive drinking and alcholismcan can tear a family apart. The Boy Who Drank Too Much also tocuches upon other high school issues like relationships, friendships, grades and gossip.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

All in all the book was a fast read. I couldve finished it in one sitting, but i had to eat dinner(I'm not very good at multitasking). Other than that, I couldn't put the book down and finished in two sittings.

The Boy Who Drank Too Much - 5 Stars
I had finished reading my book and was looking around the classroom and came across this book. The title of this book is enough to get you intrested in the book, then when you actually start to read it. This book will really interest anyone who is into reading books about people who have alcohal problems. This book is great because it covers a lot of of issues that all people go through, like relationships, addictive issues, and how people of all ages deal with stress. I thought this was a really good book, it was a shorter story, I think between two or three hundred pages, but it has sort of a heavy stroy line. You will never want to put this book down. I, being in 7th grade at the time, probably finished it in less then a day, just because I coundn't stop reading it. If you like books about how people deal with having drug/alcohal problems then you will really enjoy this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
