    " The mysticism is weird, the ending doesn't make sense, the overall feel is too preachy. "

    " A story of an inner city youth who's taken the wrong path. As usual, Myer adds a nice twist to make this one somewhat magical and exceedingly dramatic. "

    " theirs always one thing we wish we can change in our past. and we hope for a secound chance. in the book dope sicks talks about just that. about a young boy's redemption for the wrong that he did . how a drug deal went wrong and how he's on the run from the cops and can face alot of jail tiime. it talks about one teens harsh life and the every day struggle in city lifes. this book would be great if you feel you have no chose. it can show you opptions that one can make about their own life.

    " The book iread was Dope Sick and it was written by Walter Dean Myers. It was published by New York Times. My opinion of this book is that it's interesting because it really gets your attention it was a fiction book so the setting was in New York. The main characters of the story were Lil J and Kelly. The story began with lil j running from police officers. The conflct was that rico shot a cop and blamed it on lil j. I did'nt like how the conflict was resolved because it confuses you for a bit. My favorite part of the story was when he's running and gets shot then hides in the building kelly's in. A powerful quote was "If you could do it all over again and change something what would it be?". It was important because kelly made lil j's wish come true. I think the theme that the author is trying to get across to his readers is don't do something you'll regret because the story talks a lot about what happened and how would you change your mistakes in your past. The book reminds me of a movie by the name of get rich or die tryin' it is because 50 cent and lil j both have bad lifes they almost died but they later change to become a better man in life. I would recommend this book to anyone it really makes you think of alot it also has a lot of action you will die to find out what happens on the next page. "
