Rating: 2.5

My rating for this book is a 2.5 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest and I believe the main reason  was not enough detail.


This book is about a 7th grade black kid who comes from a biracial family. His name is Donte and he is an innocent kid. Donte later on has to go to jail for something he was accused of. He decides he wants to take revenge on Alan. Alan is the one who caused Donte to be in trouble so much lately. Donte decides that fencing is a good way to take revenge on Alan. Read the book to find out if Donte gets revenge or if something else ends up happening instead.


My recommendation for this book is anyone who wants to read books about things like discrimination, racism, and a little bit of sports. I would recommend the interest level of this book to about 10-13 year olds. I would recommend the reading level of this book to about 9-11 year olds. Overall, I would only recommend this book very specifically to only some people.
