    1. Nice Very Thorough , I like how descriptive you were on the book.

      Delete
    2. Very nice style, good that you included a section about the author, especially since the topics of this book is broad with the many stories. Watch out for repetition of words that you may use, such as repeating the author's name multiple times in the Description (can replace with "she" and such)

      Delete
    3. Great job by using some specific words and describing what kind of the artworks that the author using. The only critic i would just give is the watch out repetition of words that you used and that you all set up to go.

      Delete
    4. very descriptive and thorough. Nice job

    The New York Times has described it as being "most boldly and certainly a book about tenderness." It has also stated that the "reader will be dazzled by the bright ways Kwame Alexander has been singing the changes.".[2]

    The Washington Post portrays Kwame Alexander as being "at the top of his poetic game in this taut, complex tale of the crossover from brash, vulnerable boy to young adult."[3]

    The Kirkus Review describes the basketball element of the novel to provide "energy and rhythm for a moving story."[4]

    Publishers Weekly describes the verse novel as "mixing basketball action with vocabulary-themed poems, newspaper clippings, and Josh’s sincere first-person accounts that swing from moments of swagger-worthy triumph to profound pain."[5]

    Newbery Honor Book in 1995.
    Hal Clement Award in 1995.

    1. Really cool that you were able to integrate the citations with your article already. For the characters section, make sure the separation of the character name and their description is clear.

    Plot
    The story is about a Quaker girl named Dionis "Dencey" Cofyn whose actions sometimes reflected rebellion against the Quaker tradition. Her mother Lydia was a devout Quaker who was not satisfied with Dencey's spirituality especially when compared with her niece Hopestill. A little later on Dencey will confirm her mother's fears when she becomes friends with a boy named Jetsam. Jetsam was a social outcast who was subjected to constant ridicule and teasing by his peers. An incident was described where he was chased and stoned by a group of boys from the Fragment School. The Fragment School was a learning institution designed for delinquent boys like Jetsam. In fact, Jetsam attended the Fragment School for one week and he was constantly engaged in fights. Thus, he was forced to run away from the school and returned to his former lifestyle of wandering and scavenging. Despite his teacher's encouragement to return, However, the boys from the Fragment School taunted him at every opportunity. But, Jetsam was not too timid to hurl insults at them as well. So, one day, there was a fierce exchange of ill-spoken words between the boys and Jetsam. The boys became more furious at Jetsam's counter attacks and began to chase and stone him. As he fled the unpleasant ordeal, he looked around and saw Dencey. Immediately, he became hostile to her because he thought she was a part of the group that was persecuting him. So, he verbally attacked her by calling her " Nigger-face" and "Potugee Girl". These insults affected her deeply and she lost control of her temper. Her cousin Hopestill cautioned her to resist the urge to respond to him negatively since it was not in keeping with Quaker standards. But, she did not take heed and hurled a brick at him. His shoulder became injured and bled. Even though several bricks were hurled at him at the same time, she was convinced that it was her brick that injured him. Immediately, she felt remorse for her actions and tried to reach out to Jetsam, but he was too upset to accept her apology. Instead, he kicked her and screamed obscenities that she had never heard in her life. She scampered off and sobbed bitterly because of what she had done. Her sobs were so loud that she had to make an effort to quiet herself as she followed the path to her home.

    As Dencey sneaked into her room, extreme sadness and guilt about her actions weighed her down heavily. She continued to cry and was discovered by her mother, Lydia. Lydia was alarmed by Dencey's state of being and immediately sought answers from her. Eventually, Dencey told her that she had injured Jetsam but she did not recount the entire story. Her mother was baffled because of the missing pieces in Dencey's story but she proceeded to comfort her. Encouraging her that God will forgive her. (Incomplete Plot) Dominique
