school and could not seem to keep up with his work He was not good at reading and he was stressed about his mother being deployed in the army At the time, none of his schooling important to him because his main priority was basketball As a freshman in high school, he did not know what to expect He knew that one day he would play in the NBA, so he did not take his schooling very important All of his teachers and classmates knew about his special talent and how good he was at basketball As a freshman, he was beating the all star seniors in games of one on one His father strongly frowned upon him playing basketball because it was a waste of time and he needed to be focusing on his gradesHe later found out that he needed good grades to be able to join the basketball team He was frustrated and talked to his friend Jamar who was a high school dropout, Jamar suggested he dropped out of school permanently He was struggling and making bad choices After a while, he got the news

was trying to pressure him to stay out of school.Setting The book Schooledtakes place at Bluford High School when Loniel was a freshman The setting of the book is important because it showed how there are many different obstacles he had to overcome while being in school The setting was very realistic to today s high school obstacles everyone has to go through.Thematic Connection Loniel was struggling in school and getting poor grades unknowing that he would not be able to join the basketball team When he found out that he needed to have at least all C s for grades, he decided the only thing to do was give up That was when he thought about dropping out of high school Recommendations I would recommend this book for boys and girls ages 10 and up who are looking for an easy book to finish with great detail It gives great descriptive information about why schooling is important Some of the content is relatable for both high school students and middle school Some kids under the age of 10 might not be able to relate to some of the difficulties older kids go through Personal ResponseI really liked this book because it showed the struggles of many kids in schools today I also really liked this book because of all of the events that occurred throughout the plot Although I liked the book, there were some parts I did not like I felt like the book lacked details of most of the characters I also thought the author could have addedto the story.PlotThe book started out with Lionel talking to his mother on the phone about her staying deployed for another y Personal ResponseI

book, there were some parts I did not like I felt like the book lacked details of most of the characters I also thought the author could have addedto the story.PlotThe book started out with Lionel talking to his mother on the phone about her staying deployed for another year After that, he went to school and he got in trouble for not doing his homework Then he went to go play basketball, where he challenged a varsity player one on one and beat him Then he went to work and then went home After a couple of weeks of not completing work, he got in trouble for failing grades Lionel then went to his buddies house He tried to convince Lionel to drop out and live with him When Lionel got home, he got in trouble from his father because he heard about what was happening at school The next day at school, his teacher told him to come after school and talk to her about his work Lionel skipped going to the teacher s classroom, so he could go to tryouts for basketball The basketball coach told Lionel he could not play unless he had a C average for all his grades Lionel got mad and decided to quit school to live with his friend Once he moved all of his belongings to his friend s house, he stayed there for a couple of nights A couple days later, he realized that he did not want to do that any When he started walking home that night he got jumped, robbed, and ended up in the hospital He woke up to his family and he told them what had happened Then Lionel went back to school and played basketball.CharacterizationLionel was the main character of the book and he changed a lot throughout the book In the beginning, he did not want to go to school and just wanted to play basketball When the book continued, Lionel dropped out of school and lived with his friend At the end, he decided to go back to school so he could play basketballJamar was Lionel s friend who persuaded him to drop out of school and live with him He did not change that much throughout, as he stayed a bad influence for Lionel In the beginning, he was known for partying and working with Lionel At the end of the book, he was still drinking and smoking a lot, which made Lionel want to move out SettingThe book took place at Bluford High School in the U.S.A during the 1990 s It was important to the story because that was the school that he dropped out of I think the book took place in 1990 s because he dropped out of school when a student actually could without getting a truancy, unlike today ThemeThe theme of the book was the necessity of education Lionel dropped out of high school and all he did was the party He realized that he needed a high school diploma to get a real job and he still wanted to play basketball.RecommendationI recommended this book to high schoolers because of the content I recommended this book to anyone who wanted to drop out of high school because the book showed the reasons why they should not I do not recommend this book to kids who are really good in school, because they probably would not understand Lionel s struggle This book was a good book i give it 5 5 stars because it was about a boy who wanted to play basketball at Bluford High but then his parents didn t want him to play and worry about school He goes to tryouts but at the end of practice his teachers go to the coaches to explain to them that Lionel was struggling with school and that his grades werent good enough for him to play So it creates a lot of drama when Lionel decided to run away and live with his friend at an apartment He decides to star This book was a good book i give it 5

teachers go to the coaches to explain to them that Lionel was struggling with school and that his grades werent good enough for him to play So it creates a lot of drama when Lionel decided to run away and live with his friend at an apartment He decides to start his life over when his dad finds him I would recommend this book from middle school to high school students Personal Response I really liked Schooled because of how much I related to it It actually gave me a little motivation to get my grades up so I can play basketball I really liked the way the author wrote the book with so many real world situations I thinkpeople should read these books because of how realistic they are I rated this book five out of five stars, because it kept me hooked the whole time I was reading it The major events that happened were very interesting and kept me readi Personal Response I really liked Schooled because of how much I related to it It actually gave me a little motivation to get my

this book five out of five stars, because it kept me hooked the whole time I was reading it The major events that happened were very interesting and kept me reading to find out what happened next.PlotLionel was a kid that struggled with school but was one of the smartest kids on the basketball court His mom was overseas serving and his dad was always on the road struggling to just get by His dad didn t tell Lionel that he didn t graduate high school because he didn t want Lionel to drop out like he did He finally tried to get his GED Lionel couldn t read well so he always found away around doing his homework and cooperating in class activities A girl in his class, named Malika, had a crush on him, and he felt the same about her Lionel and a guy named Steve, the best player on the Bluford varsity basketball team, played one on one where Lionel crossed him over and schooled him Everyone around the school talked about it for a week after the event Lionel failed a couple classes and wasn t able to play basketball He quit school for not even a day because he was so upset that he couldn t play basketball Lionel went to Jamal s house where he drank alcohol and left to go home He was jumped by a group of guys in a dark blue SUV He then went to the hospital where he and his dad got all of the secrets out and Lionel decided to go back to school.CharacterizationThere were only a couple of key characters in this book, and the main character is Lionel Lionel was an underclassmen at Bluford High He really liked basketball and wished to eventually play in the NBA He wasn t good at school because he couldn t read very well Lionel s mom was overseas serving for her country His dad was always on the road so he didn t get to spend much time with him at home Lionel s aunt also lived with him to help take care of him while his parents were off working Lionel worked at a car wash downtown Jamal was one of the kids he worked with Jamal dropped out of high school when he was 17 He lived with his cousin doing drugs and alcohol together Lionel s aunt also lived with him to help take care of him while his parents were off working Impacts of the Setting Shooled took place at Bluford High School in Bluford That impacted the book a great deal, because it was the school Lionel attends and that was where he was most of the book Lionel spent a lot of time at his house and on the basketball court Being on the basketball court impacted the setting because he was good basketball played and was always thinking about basketball Schooled took place in present times but didn t give a specific year I know this because there were modern day cell phones and modern day slang.Thematic ConnectionThe main theme to Schooled was Appearance vs Reality because Lionel was always dealing with people making fun of him, because he wasn t very smart Lionel also couldn t continue his basketball tryouts, because he was failing classes Lionel grew up following his dad s rules He was self pressured into quitting school when he found out one of his friends had quit school when he was 16 His dad enforced rules for Lionel to follow and Lionel followed them, for the most part He couldn t play basketball, due to his grades, so he disobeyed his dad s rules He couldn t play basketball so he decided he was going to quit school When he did so, he went to one of his friends house, and was pressured into doing drugs and alcohol.RecommendationI would recommend this book to boys or girls from 12 and up, who are interested in basketball and a little bit of drama If they are in high school that s even better, because this book could possibly motivate them like it did to me in the book schooled by Paul langan, a boy name Lionel had the dreams to become an NBA player in the world but other people didn t think that he had the skills to become one so over the time in the book Lionel started to because better at basketball and played it , so was he got better he tried out for a basketball team to later get it showing people that he could become a good basketball player I think that this realistic book is a pretty good book because it had meaning to it and was goo in the book

that this realistic book is a pretty good book because it had meaning to it and was good but there were parts of the book that was not so good like when he woke up at 4 a.m just to get ready and I didn t understand things like that I think that this is a good book for everyone but maybe not teachers so much because in parts of the book kids talk about school and teachers bad overall for the book schooled I feel that it was a great book with a few of parts of it that weren t good I think that everyone can read this and is good for all Schooled is a book about a freshman boy named Lionel He loves to play basketball, his goal in life is to become a professional basketball player He has issues with keeping up on his grades, and handing in his schoolwork in on time His biggest trouble is

with keeping up on his grades, and handing in his schoolwork in on time His biggest trouble is English class, because he cannot read at the level he should be reading at His English teacher is the only teacher who makes him work hard at trying to pass the class Lionel s dad is a trucker and his mom is in the army so neither of his parents are around very often He tries out for the basketball team, he is one of the best players on the court His grades are holding him back, and not letting him play for the school basketball team So he then decides to drop out of school and live with one of his friends The friend he is living with is not a good influence on Lionel Lionel stays at this house and is involved in a party and he gets into some trouble with some gang members He is mugged and beat up and hospitalized His dad is there at the hospital when he wakes up Lionel s dad tells him about when he was in high school and how he was the same as him Lionel goes back to school and proceeds to do his work and try hard so he can get on the basketball team Lionel is a very talented basketball player and he cares about his family He wants to do well in school, he just does not put in as much effort as he should He thinks the teachers are all against him and do not want him to succeed Lionel goes through a lot in this book with his parents being gone, school, and his basketball career to worry about With his parents being gone he does not have anyone to turn to for help other than, his sister and his aunt Schooled takes place mainly at Bluford high school and in the city The area around Bluford High can be quite dangerous, if you are in the wrong place at the wrong time If this book was taken place in a different city with asafe and healthy environment, it would have been a lot different The characters would be a lot different too, if the setting was different If the time was different for the book it would have changed a lot too because, the school system and basketball wouldn t be as hard on him or maybe even harder on him I would recommend this book to lower high school classes and some upper middle school kids, because it is an easy read but there is drugs and alcohol involved at some parts I think it would be a good book for girls and boys to read Especially if they like basketball I do not like basketball, but I still found the book interesting I liked the book it was an easy read that kept my attention I liked how the author painted a description in my mind with using very good adjectives I really liked the characters and how I could related to them with some things I thought he did a very good job writing this book and it had a very good plot too The book Schooled, by Paul Langan is a good book It s about this boy named Lionel, whose dream is to become a professional basketball player He s really good at basketball but he doesn t focus on school work that much His dad wants him to focus on school work, but it s been hard for him because his mom moved to the army I don t really know if his mom was the only one who could explain the type of stuff he was doing to him or if he just can t focus on school work because he s worried about hi The book Schooled, by Paul Langan is a good book It s about this boy named Lionel, whose dream is to become a professional basketball player He s really good at basketball but he doesn t focus on school work that much His dad wants him to focus on school work, but it s been hard for him because his mom moved to the army I don t really know if his mom was the only one who could explain the type of stuff he was doing to him or if he just can t focus on school work because he s worried about his mom Although Lionel is worried about his mom and can t focus in school, basketball is the one thing that he can just forget about everything and just let himself free.I can relate to Lionel about not focusing on school work I m not saying that I don t do work in school, but I m saying that sometimes you just don t want to do school work, Lionel chooses not to do work but then he feel behind and now he can t catch back up Like your body just doesn t let you That happens to me sometimes as well where I won t wanna do school work and play xbox, or watch tv, or hang out with friends But there s a saying in my sisters college, WORK HARD, THEN PLAY HARD It s saying that you need to do work, then you ll feel a lot better when your playing and not have any pressure I wish I could jump into the book and just tell him this because he s not realizing what can happen to him in the long run.Lionel thinks that he could make it to the NBA, but he s not thinking about what would happen if he couldn t make it He s on the verge of failing and is considering to drop out of Bluford High School When ever Lionel does a bad job for schoolwork which is pretty frequently , he tells his dad that it would be okay because when he ends up making it into the NBA, he would be rich, and give his dad money That s a nice thought, but Lionel s dad ends up getting upset with Lionel because Lionel doesn t understand that schoolwork and education is a really big deal Dad I see you brought a book home today, gonna do some schoolwork tonight Lionel Yeah, I guess Lionel shrugged Lionel only brought it home so he could keep the letter from Ms Henley safe Dad I bet you could make it to the honor role if you tried, you should get on Lionel shrugged, he was trying to figure out when he could tell his dad that he brought the book home because he had a note from his teacher saying how bad of a student, the only thing to say that Lionel could think of was that it would be okay when he made it to the NBA one day.That just shows how Lionel isn t think ahead about if he doesn t make it to the NBA.You know, I can kind of see some sort of resemblance between Lionel and I, sometimes I don t want to do work at all, but I have to I think that saying at my sisters school is really good, because it s kind of powerful to me WORK HARD, THEN PLAY HARD
