Crutcher Makes A Sellout

Crutcher is a genius. He wrote a fantastic story about a phenomanol sports kidnamed Willie Weaver who can't be stopped. Except by an accident of course, an accident that leaves Willie little coordination and no sports ability. His family and girlfriend abandon him so he runs away. Finally he finds a new school. He knows this is his last chance in life. This taught me to do your best in any situation and it just might pay off. I liked it because it had good imagery and it really sucked you into Chris Crutchers world of writing.

This novel contains many interesting plots within 1 another.

"The Crazy Horse Electric Game" is the greatest novel I have ever read! I'm not the kind of person who enjoys to read, but this was a novel that kept me very interested until the end. The name seemed very funny to me at first, but once I started reading the novel, it kept getting better. I really admire the main character, Willie Weaver; he had a very special talent. It was baseball. After, Willie beats the rival team, Crazy Horse Electric, he later gets injured and is crippled for the rest of his life. After that it seems to him as the world is turning against him, so he runs away. He later faces many more dilemas. Please read this novel, you will not regret reading it!

This book has truly made a lasting impact...

This book has truly made a lasting impact on me. It has been about eight years since I first read it, and I still recall it as one of the best young adult novels that I have ever read. I think it may be one of the best books in general that I have ever read. It is powerful, emotional, and moving-- just like all of Chris Crutcher's books. Definitely a must read!

His best yet

I have read almost all of Chris Crutcher's books and I just want to say that this man is a genious. Just when I think I have read his best book yet I come up with another by him. I read Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes and was determined he couldn't write any better. This book made me cry. The ending was wonderful and it makes you want to get to know Willie Weaver. If he is out there somewhere, I feel for him. He is one lucky kid and even if he was cracked in the head with a water ski, he still has everything thinking right up stairs. He stuck with his dream all along. I respect that.
