really liked it

Book: Homeboyz
Authur: Alan Lawrence Stiomer

Homeboyz was a very interesting book I thought it was just another gang book, however it wasn’t. The book starts out with the killing of gang member and an innocent girl and it picks up talking about the how the family deals with their loss. The main character; Teddy, is what interested me the most about this book. I love how the author explains how he deals with the loss. The author describes him as exceptionally smart and that he plans things out to a “T” and that he “Sees the world in patterns, he can find patterns in complete chaos”. I found this very interesting because I see a little bit of that in me. He has a very interesting encounter with a little boy named Micah with a twisted past and a messed up future, unless, something changes for the young man. I like how the author made both their personalities the same, however they clash so much about everything. The situations push them together; however they just keep pushing each other away. They are like two magnets that attract trouble but repel each other. Down the road in the book they each understand they need each other but their egos get in the way. I like how the author made the book seem so realistic, in the way that that is how I could see myself reacting to a similar tragedy. I also found that I like the way the author would explain the history a significance of a certain event after it would happen. The reading level of the book, I would say, was a 9th grade level however; the content was a bit more mature then that. I recommend this book to anyone that just wants a page turner
