This book reminds me of my brother and me because my brother is like the boy Tony. My brother is like him because he is always getting in trouble just like Tony but I'm just like Joel in the story. Joel is a responsible boy in the story and that's just how I am. In the story Joel did a stupid thing he jumped in the Vermilion River but he didn't know how to swim so he drowned and Joel doesn't want anyone to know. It was an exciting book. I couldn't hardly wait to read it.
I would recommend this book to Mr.H because he seems to be like Joel in story because he never wants to get in trouble.
