    Great Book

    I remember reading this book in the 6th grade, and as a college student, i still remember how great this book was, and i think every kid should have the chance to read it. Waltre Dean Myers is an excellent author as well!

    Best Book Ever

    This book is an awesome book because it's shows the feelings of all the Characters like Gloria, Francis (Stuff), Cool Clyde, and Sam as well as the other gang. Some parts are hilarious which make you really Laugh. Like when they were dancing and the guy kisses Clyde (Claudette) with a french kiss. It looks nasty from another point of view however. There are also other parts that seem strange when Binky's ear got bit off and ended under the car... Some parts include a lot of sadness like when Clyde's father dies but somehow the Gang supports it's members and conforts them to get back into their old happy selfves by forming a Group called 'The Good People' which are meant to not hard but instead help the community. Then cokmes where Carnation Charley one of the dancers beaten get this Drug Addiction and the gang try to help as good as they can but that puts them in jail but Francis's (Stuff) Father tries to make them belive that they are innocent. It is also pretty funny how Francis got his name Stuff by lying at first saying he could dunk a bastketball but then they knew he couldn't but he hanged out with them and they accepted him anyways. Other parts where like Clyde was failing his academic course but his mom and the gang support him so he can try to suceed which he eventually does at the end of the book.

    Great Book!!!

    I read this book when I was in the seventh grade. I can recall it being a page turner and filled with things of this generation among young people. I strongly recommend this book to all readers.
