Topic: Rocket Blues by David Skuy
My new book is called Rocket Blues. So far it is a really good book and I like the topic of it which is hockey. The main character in the story is a kid named Brian who tries out for an AAA bantam hockey team. He is nicknamed the Rocket which I'm assuming is because he is fast. I picked this book because I have an interest in hockey books. The kid has difficulties because he lives in an old run-down apartment and his mom is poor. He has to take a bus to hockey which he finds difficult because everyone else moms had cars. I like how the author introduced the book. he had the setting, the problems, and the details about the character all nicely put into the first chapter. David Skuy is the author of this book and he is also the author of one of the other books I have read this year. He writes hockey books which is why I am interested in them so much. I found that the author does a great job of showing the emotions of the characters in these books.
