Review: Dope Sick by Walter Dean Myers

Do you believe in second chances?

Lil J has hit hard times, he can’t relax and his money is low. When his friend Rico finds a way to make some quick cash, he goes along to make the deal. This deal was suppose to be easy but when the buyer turns out to be an undercover cop, everything goes wrong. He would do anything to change what happened and when he stumbles into an abandoned crack house, that might be possible.

This book was interesting, intriguing and nothing short of magical. I love the fact that you are just as puzzled by what is taking place as Lil J. The story flows perfectly. With every flashback comes another piece to the puzzle of Lil J’s life. The book does feature elements of drug use, violence and most of the story takes place in an abandoned crack house but with that lies a story showcasing the power of second chances. After reading this book, you will begin to ask yourself the question asked throughout the story, “If you could change one thing, what would it be?”

Reading Rocket Bookmobile!

Definitely the coolest ride!

The Denver Public Library’s (DPL) new Reading Rocket bookmobile will hit the road today, making its first stop at Schmitt Elementary in the Ruby Hill neighborhood. It is the first of two new bookmobiles that will serve 28 Denver Public Schools (DPS) and 15 community centers. A second Reading Rocket is scheduled to arrive in April 2009. The Reading Rockets will replace DPL’s current bookmobile, which has been in service since 1997.

Each one of the bio-diesel powered vehicles is handicap-accessible. Both bookmobiles feature two computer stations and can hold up to 3,000 books, CDs and DVDs. Combined they will reach approximately 9,000 students and Denver residents. The bookmobiles will be hard to miss, with colorful, space-themed artwork designed to capture the imagination of children.

The Reading Rockets were designed to make reading fun and inspire a love of reading. “The Reading Rocket bookmobiles will reinforce DPS’ literacy programs in a modern and creative way,” said Tom Boasberg, superintendent of Denver Public Schools. “We believe the Reading Rockets will help encourage our students to become avid readers and life-long learners.”

So everyone in Denver should be on the lookout for it!

It would be really cool if other places had a bookmobile too. There is a great need for more encouragement to read. Hey that sounds like a slogan! :)
