What is the book crash about
Crash by Jerry SpinelliCrash John Coogan is the typical jock. At least what most of us have in mind as a jock. Crash has a wonderful life, until life deals him a hand that he could not have expected. When Crashs grandfather unexpectedly has a stroke, Crash unconsciously steps back and re-evaluates his life without even realizing hes doing it. Suddenly, his cool friends dont seem so cool anymore. Things that were once the most important in his life, become trivial. As a result of his grandfathers illness, Crash becomes more aware of the world around him and realizes there more important things in life than breaking records in football.
I can connect because Crash and his Grandfather were really close. My grandmother and I were really close too before she died. I felt really different without her. I changed a lot about myself and she was a role model to me like his grandfather was to him. This book can be related to many people and situations. Its a very common issue.
I would rate this book a 3.5 or 4 because I like who people can think about their personal experience. They can compare how they dealt with it and how Crash changed. Its very detailed and explains everything it need too.
