    Making it through Hard Times

    This book is a lot like real life. A young African American boy going through some rough days; not having it so easy at home; always bringing a bad note home to mamma; and having a hard time standing on his own two feet. And even more problems that follow. But in the end, everything is alright. You will hold your head high. I enjoyed this book because it taught me to go for my dreams and be brave and have a good amount of pride in myself. In this book, I feel as if I am hanging out with the characters. To use my imagination, I take people that I am familiar with, like my cousins and people on TV, to be the characters in the story. In closing, Cheverolet Saturdays is an excellent book, especially if you want to learn a lesson.
