it was amazing

By: Marjorie Tavarez, 603

Michael Mackenzie is a seven teen year old boy who makes a mistake, when he accidentally shot Charlie Ward. Michael has never been known to have committed such violent acts, but when his friend is a suspect in the accident, he begins to take responsibility of his actions.
Jenna Ward is devastated with the fact that her dad is never coming back. She finds her self stuck between information. Everyday she would expect the police to call her, to notify her of her father’s killer.
Joe was a major suspect in the case, and all she could think about was of Joe serving time for what she thought he had done. When Jenna begins to have dreams of her father and of Michael her whole perception of the killer changed. And that was when Michael knew he had to do the right thing.
Joyce McDonald used very good character explanation in the book, when you begin to read the book you can see how the characters felt exactly. Michael’s feelings where very detailed, Joyce McDonald made sure that Michael was understood; and that people who read the story notice that he is a good guy caught up in a bad situation.
