the blind side, Michael Lewis, w.w. Norton & company, New York, 2006, i think that this book is good because it is showing the hardship in the life of an orphaned black kid.

this book is about how a kid from the slums in memphis, tennesee gets picked up by a wealth family an dthey take good care of him by paying for his lunches at school and then it escalates even more to where they are housing him, and buying him new clothing, and paying for his tuition. he then goes to ole miss university and eventually gets drafted by the baltimore ravens in the NFL.

i like this book because it is showing that a kid that is poor can get to where thay want to be if they work hard enough and beleive that it will all work out in the end. also because it is a true story highlighting his childhood and how he srtuggled and made it through and is now a multi millionaire. it shows that you dont have to have a perfect childhood to be successful in life.

when michael is making it forr himself and is helping other children that are in need, you know that he is having a successful life and he is still young. for him to have some hardship in his life is a real booster for other kids that are going through the same situation that he and shows them that they can also get through life.

the reason that i rate this book a four is because it has some boring parts into it and some parts that dont even relate to the book at all.
