This story tells of the many stories about his time that he was in heaven, such as the things that he saw, and the people he had talked to.
This book would make an excellent movie. I have heard that they are going to make a movie about this young boys incredible experiences. I feel that by making a movie it will be an incredible experience for the viewers to see what this young boy has to say about what happened. It would be a very good movie based on the true story of this young boy.
I would strongly recommend this book to all readers. It was very well written, and I thought the author did a terrific job. It was a very inspiring book, and brought new outlook to the way I see things. It is not only a good story, it also teaches you many different things that can help change the way you look at life.

She is still very mad at her father, and is very upset she has to spend the summer with him. Things turn around for her that summer, and she finally starts to enjoy herself, and not be so upset with her father. Then a tragic change of events comes along, and she is wishing she could change her whole relationship with her loving, caring father.
This movie is very well created. The producer of the movie captured the exact characters, and setting of the story. I wouldn't change any of the movie, it is acted just as well as it is written. Most movies you see after reading the book are very disappointing, but "The Last Song," is a big exception. It was just as good, if not better than the book. It was very well acted and was a great movie.
This is a very well written book, and i was very entertained. There were a few unexpected events that made the book much better. I would recommend this book to anyone. I wouldn't change anything about this book. The author did a great job writing the book, and made it entertaining for many different ages of readers.(less)

He is a very short kid and is very nervous about going to a high end basketball camp, where he will be one of the smallest players there. In the book, Danny, is faced with many challenges while he is at this camp, that may even cause him to want to give up. He is given every reason to give up and stop trying, but this strong, young basketball player continues to fight till the end.
There is no movie based off of this book which I think is disappointing. This is a very well written book, and I think could be turned into a terrific movie, that can inspire, and entertain, many young and old viewers. This book is not very complex, can be easily be read by younger readers, and has a great lessons taught in it as well. I think that this book could easily be made into a movie, and they could include every single detail into the plot.
I strongly recommend this book to any sports fan. I love this entire book, there is nothing about it that I would change. The story and the characters were very well described and very easy to understand. I recommend reading "Travel Team," which is the book before "Summer Ball." By reading "Travel Team," first it introduces and makes the story more enjoyable. It is not necessary to read it first, but is highly recommended. (less)

This story tells about the many things that happened to this amazing sled dog. He has many experiences to which he must learn new skills, and adapt to the new way of life. He learns that he has to fight for his survival, and that he is not going to let anyone stop him in his fight to the top.
This book is very good. I do not know if there has been a movie made about this book, or if they are making one. From the book, I think it would be very difficult to create a movie that was accurate. I do not think it would be easy to capture the emotion of the dog, or the things he is thinking in the movie. I think that this book is better off just as a book.
This book is a good one. It is very well written and I think the author did a great job. I did not enjoy the book as well as I thought I would though. It was good, but I did not love the story line. It would have been better for me if there was a little more entertainment throughout the book.(less)
