Life on the edge

Great book. I feel so sorry for Martin and his mother having to suffer like that. It's good that Martin made the right choice. May his brother Huero find peace in Heaven

Ethics, Action, and Attitude

This book has it all. It has been hugely successful in my reading classes in terms of sparking interest with reluctant readers. The book starts when Martin's younger brother, Huero, is killed by a bullet intended for Martin or one of his friends. Martin must choose between gang life and revenge, or a new life that starts when he's able to walk away. There are no easy answers for Martin and the book honors the complexity involved in making serious, ethical decisions. Some of my most resistant readers were a few chapters ahead of me, racing to find out what happens. The book also lends itself to all kinds of class conversations and critical thinking opportunities. I highly recommend this book for anyone with older, struggling readers. A good book can sometimes pull them back to reading. This could be the book that does it.

This Series Is Great For Some Students

Everyone wants to be able to relate to a book and feel that they can be represented in them. This series allows students who are African-American, see themselves in a book and contains stories they can relate to. I gave this book to a student in my homeroom and he was thrilled. He read The Bully and wanted more. His happiness was good to be behold.

Brothers In Arms

"People were starting to gather around, but I blocked them out. Huero was going to wake up. He had to." This is one of the most exciting moments of the book Brothers In Arms. This book is about two brothers who live in a bad neighborhood. Huero, the youngest brother, counts on his big brother Martin (his hero). Then, a tragedy occurs. What happened to Huero? Martin wants revenge. Martin has to choose a path...stay in the past or think about his future. Which path will he choose? One of the people Martin meets in his new path is Vicky. Vicky, turns out to be a beautiful and wonderful girl. Vicky is Martin's friend. She is a great student at Bluford High School. Mr. Mitchell the annoying teacher who gets in everybody's business. One of the most exciting parts of Brothers In Arms, is when Martin faces one of his friends. They got in an argument. Another quote of the book that I thought it was interesting is "My brother's death wasn't enough for you, huh? Now you want me too." Brothers In Arms taught me a lesson. That you should never run from your past, that you should face it. Also that revenge is just a waste of life and opportunities, so "don't waste it on something worthless." By: Jeniffer C.

Brother's in Arm's By Pual Langan & Ben Alirez

My book is about a boy named Martin Luna that's trapped in a world that he really doesn't like.His little brother called Huero died by a buulet to the back of his head.The most part i like about the book is when him and his friend's seek revenge on his little brother's killer.To make matter's worse his mom (i really don't know her name) is moving far far away from all the madness because she doesn't want to lose a nother son. Well as you can see when he moved away from his old house his mom inrolled him in a school called Blufford High.At first he really didn't wan't to go to that school but he started meet alot of people now he's starting to like it.He hasn't seen his brother's killer yet but he is still looking for him.
