like this one girl who is very pretty named Jane forbs who he is crazy for and for some reason likes Penn Webb This book is about how john s 7th grade year changed him forever John coogan is one of my favorite parts of this book because I can relate to him and I have been in a few of his situations before I also like him because jerry spinelli makes it so I can picture everything that happens Jerry spinelli wrote this book in a way that I just want to keep reading and this is one of the few for me One of the problems that John has is that his grandpa came to live with him and falls out of a tree and has a stroke John s grandpa does not even remember his name anyHe does not know if he wants to be in the Penn relays for track or instead give the only spot left to Penn Webb something he would never do in a million years Crash is filled with characters like Penn s parents, uncle Herm, Abby, and Bridget Jerry Spinelli makes it seem like they are all you friends and relatives This book can be

example, I like the characterization and how Spinelli makes it so easy to understand what each character is thinking and what they want For example, the main character Crash actually feels jealous of his neighbor Penn, even though he beats him up all the time Crash is jealous because even though he s wealthier he doesn t like how Penn s family actually care for their son There is a moral in this book that family is the most valuable thing there is I hope that this book allows both parents and kids to stop and think for a moment about their lives and how they can be closer Crash talks about how he loved being able to eat with his entire family there, and it shows how important it is to be close to the family It was really easy to connect to this book, because I see both Penn s views where my parents are there rooting me at softball games and eating dinner with them However, I think we all see Crash s side where we might feel a little neglected at times by our families for their work We all need to stop and think once in awhile how important it is to be with our families over work Crash Coogan is cool He s the star of the school football team and he s a bully.Penn Webb is small and weedy Penn Webb hates violence he s a Peace badge wearing vegetarian Crash and Penn are not destined to get along.Crash s story is funny, crazy in all the action, the conversation, and even in his few backfiring attempts to show off he always manages to be on top.From the day Penn moves into the neighbourhood, Crash torments him mercilessly But no humiliation seems to bring Penn down

the neighbourhood, Crash torments him mercilessly But no humiliation seems to bring Penn down Crash is intrigued We are intrigued And the question slowly dawns on Crash could it be that in some way Penn is actually stronger than he is Spinelli is a master of books about character In the selfish and conceited preoccupations of this kid s life, Spinelli finds those hidden inklings of humanity which can grow into extraordinary strength and greatness.While Crash doesn t end up the same as Penn, he does discover a new best friend.Upper primary and lower secondary boys have to read this

part I was pretty into this book I liked it better than Spinelli s Stargirl because there was much better character development This book seems like something a lot of middle grades boys could relate to since it deals with issues like bullying, friendship, having a close family member get sick, and dealing with money or a lack of in a family I think it s muchdown to earth than some of his books which seem to almost too colo I read this all in one sitting this morning and for the most part I was pretty into this book I liked it better than Spinelli s Stargirl because there was much better

felt rushed I liked how it ended but would have liked to see the final chapter play out over a few chapters since it seemed like one of those easier said than done kind of situations It drives me nuts when young adult authors shy away from writing about difficult conversations and instead just tell us that the characters somehow finally solved their problems I also was not into the football scenes
