I really dislike reading, but Alex Flinn's 'Fade to Black' was fantastic. It had a sense of reality to it. It shows what people really do think. This book, in my opinion, was one of the best books I've read. I'd recommend this book to anyone.

The book starts off with a HIV positive teen named Alex Crusan driving his car early one morning when he gets attacked by a boy with a baseball bat. Later, they rush him to the hospital and he reportedly has multiple wounds found on is face and abdomen. The author in Fade to Black keeps you on your toes and makes you not want to stop reading. You can picture everything the author is trying to describe and he's very detailed within every passage. I would give this book a five out of five. Its very entertaining and interesting. It keeps you wanting to know more. No book comes close to being this good. I'm sure that many people could relate to the characters in this story. This is by far the best book I've ever read, even the very first page drew me in wanting to know more about this kid and the things he has to sacrifice just to live his life. The book is somewhat inspirational to people who might have terminal diseases and I think the overall message that their trying to get through is live your life to the fullest. I haven't found one book that even comes close to being as good as this one and I hope one day you guys have a chance to read it.

The book Fade to Black by Alex Flinn is a very good book. It gives an example of what can really happen in real life. People sometimes dont trust somebody just because they are disabled. Things like these do happen and theres nothing we can do about it but just hope that the truth comes up. I find this book interesting because ive never before heard or read of a story/book that has to do with this topic. Platano Salami Timber Creek Class of 2010

The title of my book is Fade to Black by Alex Flinn. I believe the author¿s purpose for writing this book is to show people that even if you have a disease and bad things are happening to you, don¿t give up. Just because someone does do something to you doesn¿t mean that you have to ruin their life. I think Flinn wrote this book because he wanted to show people that even when odds are against you, if you keep pursuing what you want you will make it. I think the author intended on having teens read this book because the lesson could be taught best to them. I have heard a lot of stories from my parents talking about how they wished they would have forgave some of their friends for doing something to them that didn¿t really matter. The narrator¿s point of view is that no matter what age you can still stand up for yourself. Alex Crusan is the main character in this book, I feel he should have written it because he¿s the one with the sickness and he¿s the one that the theme is about. I could mostly relate to Clinton Cole. I could mostly relate to him because I have been in the same situation as him a lot. He gets blamed for something huge that he really didn¿t do, and I get that a lot. I feel the author did a good job and did get his success from writing the book. I feel he obtained all his goals. The book taught me the theme. I won¿t back down no matter what the odds are. If I feel I can do something, I¿m going to do it. This book is actually one of a kind. I haven¿t found one book, movie, or essays that are anything like this book. I don¿t really understand how the book title relates to the message of the book or how the book was written, either way it¿s a really good book. I recommend this book to anyone. I personally am not a reader, but I read the first couple of pages of this book and actually wanted to read it. I liked the ending of this book it explains a lot of this and says what happens to the people. I found this book to be enjoyable, it really draw¿s you in. I would give this book at 5 out of 5. It is very entertaining and it keeps you wondering what¿s going to happen next. It is by far the best book I have ever read. The first page of this book is better than any other book. ¿Maybe I am a ghost people look through like water, maybe I am invisible so they do not know who I am, maybe they think words are invisible so I cannot hear them say things about me in the hallways, but words are not invisible, and neither am I, and I will always, always hear them.¿ (Clinton Cole pg7-8)

Alex is a teenage who is HIV positive. Not many people want to be around him. This book shows the hardships that Alex has to go through. This book also shows how he has to deal with certain things. A boy named Clinton is one of Alex¿s worst enemies. Clinton hates Alex a lot. Can Alex turn Clinton into a friend and not an enemy? Read the book to find out. .............. **** I liked this book very much. This book shows what a person has to go through if they are HIV positive. I enjoyed this book very much. ****

Alejandro 'Alex' Crusan is a seventeen-years-old Latino and HIV positive. His family moved from Miami to Pinedale, Florida. No one in his new school will touch him, much less befriend him. The only one that does not avoid Alex is Daria, the girl with Down Syndrome. Everyone avoids her too. But someone nearby hates Alex enough to learn his daily routine, followed by taking a baseball bat to Alex's car. The windows shatter, throwing tiny glass shards over Alex. The shards act as knives. ................. Daria does not lie. She tells the police what she saw. The police go after Clinton Cole. ...................... Clinton has been very vocal on his feelings about Alex being HIV positive from the beginning. Everyone agrees with Clinton however, no one believes Alex deserves what happened to him. When everyone begins avoiding Clinton, the teen starts to understand how Alex's isolation feels. Clinton swears he did not do it. Yet no one believes him. ...................... **** Author Alex Flinn writes in a way that teens can relate to. She has taken a few taboo topics and created a mystery that young adults will enjoy trying to figure out, while learning about delicate subjects. I enjoyed the story very much and recommend it to all. ****

I read the summary before the book actually came out. When it did come out, I ordered it off the internet and when I got it I was alittle dissapointed. It was just to short, oh and the ending has absolutely nothing to do with the first 100 pages you read. Alex Flinn, what has happened to your great writing skills, you really didnt show them in this book.
