Character and I

The character and I are the same in some ways like we both like basketball and are leaders and try to improve on basketball. And we are different like he is more like a shooting guard and i'm a point guard.

Somewhere Else

He would of never got hurt or be abel to see his friends and his girlfriend and would of never fell in the lake when he was trying to see his girlfriend.

Compare to last book

I think my last book I read that was Million Dollar Throw was a little better just because I could understand more and it felt like I was in the story. And with this book It didn't pull me in like that book.
