i like this book. this book has made me want to read other books by this author. it might not be very interesting for a girl, but for a guy it is pretty cool. football, girls, and making fun of nerds. what else would entertain guys. i like this book and i would recommend it to guys only. never girls. they might think some of the jokes are offensive.

Crash was the first football book i have ever read. It was so easy to pickup. There was alot of action in it. The ending was very good.

I usualy dont read alot but I realy liked this book. If you are a sports fan you would like this book. I loved it. I didnt understand why his name was Crash though.

John "Crash" Coogan got his nickname when he got his first football helmet one Christmas and he knocked his cousin Bridget over into the snow before she could even enter the house. Crash's life continues in much the same way; as a youngter he digs hole in the yard and buries his mother's flowers, and when he hits seventh grade he focuses on football and goofing around with his best friend Mike Deluca. Their favorite target is their neighbor, Penn Webb, a Quaker and a vegitarian who tries out for the Cheer squad.

Although this story is a typical jock befriends neighborhood outcast tale on the surface, Jerry Spinelli is much too talented to leave it at that. Crash is growing up, but the changes are subtle, and Spinelli never forces the issue. Crash's parents work too hard and are rarely home, and Spinelli shows us Crash's reaction without overdoing it. Crash himself never realizes that he is maturing, but that one of the things that makes this such an enjoyable novel. Crash retains his joyful energy even as he faces challaneges and chooses between right and wrong.

Crash never knew that a cool guy can be friends with a nut. In this book, Crash learns an important lesson about friends. The plot turns upside down in some parts. Read thi book to find out when.

Crash by:Jerry Spinelli
This book is about a football player that pulls pranks on a dork. This book made me laugh out loud.
