I originally found this book on my school library's free book rack. I thouroughly enjoyed this book and have read it multiple times, of course now it's one of my top favorite books. But, after having it all to myself for a few years, I decided to donate it to the public library where I live. I smile every time I see it missing from the shelf there.

This book had a bad storyline and was not interesting. It was quite boring and did not exctie me at all. I actually looked forward to the end just so it would be over, though I must admit there were some OK parts of the book.

I was picking through my old english teachers¿ library of teen novels, when I came across the book Swallowing Stones. I thought wow, what a title, what in the world could swallowing stones mean? I started reading the back of the book, and I was instantly pulled into it. I was compelled to find out the meaning of the title. I wanted to read it right then.
Swallowing Stones fits into the category of a fictional mystery. I love the books that make you think about what will happen next, the ones that are suspenseful. You can¿t put them down! I would definitely recommend the book to any mystery fanatics; you won¿t be disappointed by this thrilling piece.
I¿m not an active reader, but I was surprised to find myself reading the book every night. Joyce McDonald creates a character that everyone can relate to; Michael is an average young teenager like many high school students. He is getting ready to drive, he¿s intelligent, and he¿s pretty popular. Until one day, when Michael is faced with the fact that he is a murderer. He has no idea that his foolish action on Independence day could lead to the death of an innocent person. No one knows except his best friend Joe, who witnessed the shooting. The reader wants to find out if they can pull of the secret that will scar them for life if anyone finds out about it. It makes you want to keep reading to find out.
Swallowing stones was recommended to me, and now I am recommending it to you. I encourage teens between the ages of twelve and seventeen years old who are looking for a quick interesting story to read to read Swallowing Stones. The book starts off great, and it definitely ends great. The book focuses on problems that teens deal with everyday, ranging from dating to consequences you will face because of your actions.

The book Swallowing Stones was one of my best books I have ever read. Normally the books don't jump out at me like this. But ever time I put the book down siad, 'I wonder what happens next.'

So I don't read books often, except when extra credit is offered in Language class for participating in the book club. This was one of our books. i couldn't put it down. It is a great book....until the ending. That was one of the worst endings to a book i have ever read. Such a let down. If you have a mind that has to know exactly what happens. I wouldn't reccomend this book. Great book....Until the last page.

This book was very interesting. I had to read it for english class, but I'm glad I read it. It had a lot of suspense. Which made it so you couldn't stop reading it. It also had a great moral to it. I would recommend this book to everyone especially teens that have guns and hunt a lot.
