    One thought on “The Perfect Shot”

    1. This book was OK It failed to capture my attention through out the book, and had many unimportant scenes that have no correlation to the story s outcome The mystery of the book was pretty plain I would have given this book a 2.5 star if it were available because it was Ok, but just not as interesting as I would have liked and fails to captures the readers attention.Might have liked this book better if I played basketball

    2. I thought the book was written well Some of the characters were good, but other ones I really couldn t have care less about I thought the idea of mixing in sports with a murder mystery was really original.

    3. The Perfect Shot by Elaine Marie A teenage boy who s best friend was killed, and the main suspect became her father But he believes he has other evidence of someone else who did it To me Brian seems very courageous, strong and smart man An example of Brian being strong is when he went against his father and decided to bail his best friend Julian out of jail I know you like Julius he says slowly but it sounds as if he s really gotten himself into trouble this time I don t think we should get invo [...]

    4. The book the perfect shot was a good book it just took a long time to really tell what brian did after his girlfriend got killed This book was much too long the story could have been told in half the length There was also a point in the book were i forgot what i was reading about because they went kind off the subject But other than that the book was very good they told deep details when they talked about something or described something.It was also a book of thoughts in life because u can relat [...]

    5. This was a very intriguing book lots of excellent basketball scenes that helped tell a story which was part mystery, part identity search, and part commentary on justice The teenage protagonist must research a real life murder case from the early 20th century that parallels a murder case ongoing in his life, and he must make a decision about how much of a part he will play in the current one Much is said about differences between people and how we make assumptions that shut off acceptance of oth [...]

    6. this book was about a high school basketball player who s girlfriend s family was killed including herself by an unknown murder they suspect that the father was the killer but Brian doesnt agree he has guilt that is building up in his chest because he thinks that he could have saved her from being killed and on top of all of this tragedy brian has to deal with school work and most of all basketball i learned from this book that to never let guilt build up on you because it can ruin your life ove [...]

    7. It was a pretty good book It is one of those books that switches back and forth between past and present so if you like that sort of thing than you should read this It is about a young boy who is a basketball star His girlfriend gets murdered and he is torn between the case and his basketball career Unable to focus on basketball with the thought of the murder on his mind He attempts to find out who murdered her and her family.

    8. I was laughing to myself as I read the previous reviews on this book Why They all recommended it for teenage GUYS Not that that s not probably the case most of the time, us girls like it too It did switch back and forth between the past and present a bit though, but it s a really great book, especially if you like basketball Brings up a few good points too.
