Breaking Point

Breaking Point is about a boy that was looking for acceptance in school so he starts hanging out with a popular quarterback. The quarterback makes him do horrible things until he does something so bad he is arrested while the quarterback gets off, becoming the first in his family to make it to the big time.

I believe that Breaking Point is a very good book that many young teenagers can relate to when you first go to high school. The only thing that I disagree with is that it takes too long for the action to begin. I do not believe that this is Flinn’s best work unlike Fade to Black which had much more suspense and chances of life or death, leaps of faith, jail or freedom.

Nothing to Lose


Nothing to Lose by Alex Flinn takes place in Miami, Florida. Michael Bay is a run away teenager working for a carnival. His mother murdered his +-stepfather because he was abusing her and ruining her life. Michael meets some old and new friends. He meets up with a lawyer who may help him get his mother out of jail. This was a good story the only problem was that it would sometimes confuse me because it was going back and forth between two time periods, other then that the book was very interesting and kept me guessing about what was going to happen next.

Beastly

A kid named Kyle was one of the most popular kids in his school. But he was mean to a lot of people who were not popular. A couple days before prom Kyle told a girl that he would go to the prom with her but he just wanted to embarrass the girl because she was not popular. Kyle was going with one of the most popular girls in school. But what he didn’t know was that the girl that he embarrassed was a witch.

I think Kyle should of just been nice to everyone of it took a turn for the worst. It’s his fault and who cares if you’re not pretty your still a human and all humans have feelings. So after the prom when Kyle went home the girl was there. She turned Kyle into an ugly beast. She said to Kyle when you find someone who loves you for who you are (which is a beast) that they would have to love you and kiss you in a meaning full way. To break the spell someone has to truly love him for who he is and if he doesn’t then he will stay a beast forever.
