This book is more of a fun and relatable, book for some people. It really sends a message to the reader that it doesn’t matter what position you are in, that there will always be a better part of the story. Overall this was a good book to read.
The Boy Who Owned The School What would you do if you couldn¿t talk to anyone ,or at least feel like it? In Gary Paulsen book the boy owned the school, Jacob (main character) is some what easy to relate to. A 7th grader having trouble in some classes, and nervous to talk to the girl he likes. His father and mother drink a bit and his mom only cares about his sister¿s blooming modeling career. School doesn¿t help either It¿s a great story about the revolution of an outcast. The boy who owned the school is very understandable though getting a little sketchy in some areas. Through the book Jacob talks about a place called death row in no relation to jail. He dosent explain directly what it was until he went in ¿here it goes walking down death row ,the jock lockers¿ The book is spoken in fast paced action,trying to be in school without being in school. Hidden from students and teachers alike. The book is in chronological order with a few minor flash backs. Jacob ,runs jumps, sneaks, and sits in the back of the English class but gets caught by the teacher. You should check out Gary Paulsen¿s book the boy who owned school. The story of the revolution of an outcast.
