The author of the novel that I decided to read this week is Walter Dean Myers and the name of the novel is Kick. This novel is about a boy named Kevin and he had never been in trouble before, but he did and he went to juvenile hall. He was a good kid, caught between a rock and a hard place when a female friend asks for his help. He got caught driving her in her father's car, after causing a small accident, but cannot explain the why he was with the girl without getting his friend in trouble. He's also a good friend and a soccer star.
This flaw that Malcolm has made him miss out on his childhood from how he was forced to grow up quickly. To make you understand why this flaw has made a big impact in his life we are going to go back to the beginning. From a young age, Malcolm was competitive and athletic. He never turned down a game of soccer over playing with Hotwheels or action figures with his friends. One afternoon Malcolm's father came home from work and saying he found this cool sport around the corner called Tae kwon do.
As with moving into most places, the label ‘new kid’ is not uncommon and usually calls for getting put at the bottom of the social chain. On page 47, this is obviously no exception for Liesel- “Being the new kid in town, Liesel was immediately shoved between one pair of those cans. (Tommy Müller was finally set free, despite being the most useless soccer player Himmel Street has ever seen)”. No matter how awful other players may be, being the new kid automatically gets you the worst position in the soccer game as goalie. But Liesel doesn’t let this set her back, and is determined to prove them wrong by saving a penalty kick from Rudy who has never missed a before.
The match against Ocean View ended up in Honolulu 's loss, but since everyone had done their best, and it wasn 't a real match, nobody was truly upset. The past week had helped everyone, especially Henry, fine tune their abilities, learn new skills they were able to use on court, and stay motivated. Yuki, however, felt like he could have performed better. Several times throughout the game, an opponent 's spike had slipped past his fingers, endangering his team. Having learned his lesson, Yuki promised to practice hard for the next match and help his
So he said “tomorrow all games have been cancelled because of snow but I would love for you to come back and play with us.” so I said I would love to come back and play with the team coach thank you so much for giving me this opportunity. After I finished talking to him everyone came up to me and said “see you in a few months Ricky, Don’t party too much in college.” They all just seemed like they really wanted me there. So from the moment I got there everyone had a great and happy mood. Nobody though they were better than the other and they all treat each other with respect. So I really enjoyed being around the whole team for a week and get to observe them and the way they
My friends began to talk to me little by little, everyday. I didn’t know that I loved showing off my intelligence, I loved the joy of knowing so much of what my friends didn’t know. Not just being smarter than them, but helping them with spelling. A week passed and I thought about my discussion and at that moment in time I realized that I was smart, and there was nothing I could do about it. At recess I stopped my friends, before stepping onto the jungle gym and they all just ran away.
Brian is the nerd whose parents do not absolutely approve a grader lower than A. He was once about to commit suicide by bringing a gun at school, because he got a B in one of his class. In the movie, Claire asked him to do everybody’s essay because he was the “smartest” from all of them and he agreed because he liked being the smart one. Alisson is known as the basket case, where she was the “abnormal” one. In the beginning, she was the weird one who was very quiet.
Somehow,a simple game managed to get a depressed 10 year old to flourish into a amiable,sociable and confident person.Someone who advocates his love for animals and sports,but I still can’t play soccer for my life! Eventually,I had grown tired of pokemon pearl and it had gave me the right,according to my parents,to get more games.The white rectangular box of entertainment and amazement had entertained me(and implanted years of forcing to do at least 3 hours of studies and sleep at 9:30pm everyday) for 7 years before it died and refused to wake up.It would always remain as the biggest change in my life,and also the
My sophomore year of high school was my second year on the junior varsity soccer team. I was disappointed at first for having not made the varsity team when so many girls I grew up with and had played travel soccer with had made it as freshman and sophomores. A few days after tryouts my coach pulled me aside to speak with me. She told me that she wanted to have a team captain, which she had never done before because she was against the idea, and that she wanted me to be the one to hold that title and responsibility. I was thrilled.
