The Blind Side Book Trailer


Michael Oher playing football. But does he make it to the NFL?


The reason why I chose this book because I like the movie, so I wanted to read the book to get more information from the book. My opinion of the Blind Side is that it is the best book that I read. My favorite part of the Blind Side is when Michael Oher goes into a football game and smash a guy into the ground pretty hard. Why I liked it because I could feel his pain. Reasons why I disliked the book where that it does not say if Michael made it to the NFL. Reasons why I liked the book was that I found it fun to read. Also it was easy for me to understand. What I would rate this book is a five star rating because I thought it was a great book for me to read. I would recommend this book to teenagers and people who are older.
