    Great story about making choices!

    As a middle school teacher, I found this to be a great story to introduce 'making choices' - a beginning of the year activity for my classes. As an avid reader of YA literature, I found the story realistic and compelling -- fast paced, 'real' characters with real-life problems, and written in dialect that most adolescents would relate to. Lots of adventure and suspense!

    Four Miles to Pinecone the Greatest Book

    I read 'Four Miles to Pinecone'. It was a very good book and it was very interesting. The author was retelling a story in which he incountered and a like experence. The energy in the story went up and down. The story was a nature and city story. That us what I liked about the story. I encourage other people to read it because it was a very good and nicely written book.

    E.T

    I have to read this for my eigth grade ila class. I'd rather not read it though. No offense to anyone who loves the book. It's just that I live in the Minneapolis area and when teachers pick books that take place where you live it's just annoying.

    Could Have Been Better

    This book was okay. I personally didn't really like it that much though. It's kinda boring untill over halfway through the book. There are a couple of twists and turns along the way, though. Maybe recommend it??????

    To Squeal, or Not to Squeal? That is the Question

    In Four Miles to Pinecon, by Jon Hassler, Tom is suprised to see he has an F in English class. He didn't turn in 47 homework assignments. To bring his grade back up, Tom must write a grammatically correct, 47-page story over the summer break. But, over the break, he has the experience of a lifetime. The story takes place in St. Paul, Minnesota and Pinecone in summer. The setting helps the story by giving a more mysterious side. Pinecone is a small town up north of St. Paul and it's secluded, and not much happens there, which makes it all the more interesting. This gives the reader the knowledge that crime streaks are more difficult to trace in a wilderness area such as Pinecone. Over the summer, Tom's beast friend, Mouse, gets a job. Tom works at a small grocery store run by one man, Mr. Kerr. One night at closing, two robbers breakl in right before Mr. Kerr and Tom leave. While trying to fend the robbers off, Tom gets the money, then runs and hides in the basement. Mr. Kerr is knocked unconscious from one robber. The robber yells to the other robber, 'Mouse, come on!' At that momernt, Tom is almost 100% sure it's his friend, Mouse. Throught the whole summer, Tom debates if he should turn his best friend in. He wonders if it's right, wrong, or both. He encounters another little adventure at his Uncle Chad's house, which solves a motor theft case and helps Tom with his decision to turn his friend in. Tom them goes back to St. Paul where the roller coaster of a summer comes to a bumpy end. Tom changes throughout the story by having different opinions in different people. Being almost sure that his friend tried to rob his work store helped this. He looks deeper into people's personalities to find hidden traits to catergorize the people he knew. The author, Jon Hassler, is trying to tell you that sometimes, it's OK to judge as book by its cover because it's what you see first. But in the same instant, he also tells you to read the book thoroughly to find every last piece of information that you can, because you just might need it. Four Miles to Pinecone is a good mysterious story that will keep the gears in your head turning. That's why I gave it five stars. It's a great book that you just can't put down.
