On My Honor

Written by Marion Dane Bauer

Reviewed by Jacob M. (age 10)

The book On My Honor is about two boys about 11 and 12. Their names are Joel and Tony. Tony was always the daredevil but Joel was the type of kid that did not want to get in trouble but Tony was something else. He was always getting in trouble. You could turn around for two seconds and Tony would be in trouble.

This book reminds me of my brother and me because my brother is like the boy Tony. My brother is like him because he is always getting in trouble just like Tony but I'm just like Joel in the story. Joel is a responsible boy in the story and that's just how I am. In the story Joel did a stupid thing he jumped in the Vermilion River but he didn't know how to swim so he drowned and Joel doesn't want anyone to know. It was an exciting book. I couldn't hardly wait to read it.

I would recommend this book to Mr.H because he seems to be like Joel in story because he never wants to get in trouble.
