Listener Opinions

    " I'm not particularly fond of the majority of his books (the exception being Sleeping Freshman Never Lie) but I did really like this one, both the writing and the topic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darius Estaban | 2/7/2014

    " i thought dunk was a very good book. it is about a boy who wants a summer job but his mom wont let him have one. so he sneaks a job and works at a dunk tank where he gets fascinated with the job. but he wants to be the bozo but for now he is just the ball collector. To mae matters worse his bestfriend is in the hospital with a serious disease. "

    " This book was just not my cup of tea. While I loved Lubar's Sleeping Freshmen Never Lie, I don't feel like this book had the same wit and humor about it. This story just didn't make me laugh like Freshmen did and I didn't feel the same empathy toward the main character either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan [find me somebody to love] | 2/6/2014

    " Hmm, I read this sometime last year... I'm pretty sure it was a four-star though. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 1/31/2014

    " Great coming-of-age story. Lubar manages to offer a new spin on the old "one meaningful summer in a teen's life" story through the bizarre figure of Bozo, the clown in the dunk tank. Though Chad learns to express his rage through humor, the overall impression left by the book is not one of comedy but of survival. I'll definitely be recommending this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mason T | 1/29/2014

    " This book is about a kid who lives in New Jersey by a hug board walk. When school is in session it gets kind of boring. But when the summer season starts all the fun begins. All his friends he met over past summers come back and the food, games, and water. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marissa | 1/22/2014

    " This really enlightened me, it being from a guy's POV and me being a girl. n-n" The thoughts were real, the story was well written, the characters were believable. This book is great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber Pangburn | 1/16/2014

    " This was about a comiden who wanted to be in the dunk tank. He would want to learn how to do this and he wanted to make money. In the end he became a great clown in the dunk tank. I would use this in the classroom to show the students that they need to do some things on their own. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 8/24/2013

    " This is a good book about a fifteen year old boy who lives with his motehr. He often was at the wrong place at the wrong time. He was a good kid, though who got befriended by the "Bozo" at the dunk tank and he wanted to become a bozo. This is a nice coming of age story. "

    " Good book. It had all sorts of tuff going on, and also showed that if you want something, you have to go for it. I also like it's view on acting/improv. There were some swear words, but otherwise; it came out clean. "
