The book Shadow of a Bull was good because you meet a kid from Spain named Manolo that is 13 or so, he also looks like his father at a very young age. Whose father is a professional bull fighter, but when a horrible thing happened that one day. Manolo’s father dies to a horn in the gut or something. Then you also learn how the son of a bull fighter has to go threw to live up to his father's name. Also he has to fulfill he’s destiny to become a professional bullfighter like his father was.
So Manolo has to train but he’s too afraid to be a bullfighter. So he has friends who help him train. After a while of training his friends think he’s improving and they think they should get Manolo a bull but without its horns trimmed. Then after he hears that he starts getting scared but even more. When Manolo gets his first bull he does something that no one else did in the history of bullfighting.
I have learned to trust your mind and to never let someone judge you by how you act, look. But never let someone say what you have to do in life but to make your own decisions. Also you will always have fiends to help and support you in your time of need.
