Crash Jerry Spinelli read online review & book description:

A modern classic from Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli.

"Readers will devour this humorous glimpse of what jocks are made of." --School Library Journal, starred review

Cocky seventh-grade super-jock Crash Coogan got his nickname the day he used his first football helmet to knock his cousin Bridget flat on her backside. And he has been running over people ever since, especially Penn Webb, the dweeby, vegetarian Quaker kid who lives down the block. Through the eyes of Crash, readers get a rare glimpse into the life of a bully in this unforgettable and beloved story about stereotypes and the surprises life can bring.

"Without being preachy, Spinelli packs a powerful moral wallop, leaving it to the pitch-perfect narration to drive home his point" --Publishers Weekly

"Spinelli's writing style is great for kids in this age-group, fast-paced and funny." --Booklist

    So far I'm reading this in school, and I'm LOVING IT!!! It is funny, no drama, and quick paced. You get rapped into the book. Short chapters, not too descriptive. πŸ˜„. I would read this again. I'm already on chapter 6 and 7. We just started today! 😊.

    It was awful. In my middle school class we had to read it. It was so slow and also very boring and predictable. I would only recommend this for boys that don't like to read very hard levels and only like to read short books. Also, it was a pointless book that didn't teach me anything I didn't already know.
  • Amazing.

    This book is an amazing novel. I love it. It is a good way to understand bullying with a twist. It is definitely cool.
