This book was like a memory of me in Elementary School and that’s what kept me reading this book. I have to say my favorite character was Zinkoff, which is the main character in the story. He was my favorite because he didn’t care if he was doing wrong stuff, or far from normal, he just finished it and made a good out of everything. I wouldn’t say there was a character I didn’t like because he didn’t have a problem with what anyone thought. My emotions towards this book would be memorable and silly, because of how he thought some words were funny and the setting itself. I wasn’t able to predict the ending because everything happened all of a sudden. The part that really caught my attention was when he rescued the girls from the blizzard and was considered a hero. If this book was made into a movie I could choose a bunch of little kids that would best represent him, but I would say Macaulay Culkin, the younger version, would be the best actor if this was made into a movie, because he’s been around the similar setting with his movies. My favorite line from the book was the beginning phrase, “You grow up with a kid but you never really notice him,” because that refers to many kids these days, you just see them as a background that you don’t really pay attention to and they are just there, but then you start to notice him/her more often. I think the author probably wrote this to entertain people about little kids that are not of how they are judged. I would recommend this book to kids or anybody that is in the same situation as this kid or often see the similar situations with other kids.

Shanfire He did not save the girls from a blizzard. He went to look for a girl during the blizzard, however the girl was found and he kept looking for her because he had no way of knowing that. Furthermore, the police ended up looking for him... Other than that nice review.
