    1. Great book for reluctant readers. The topic is engaging. The characters are likeable - though not well-developed. Some offensive language for the tender-hearted.

    2. this book was heart-warming, i honestly loved this book, because coach carter has a new method to get along with the basket players

    3. The book was really good.I like this book because there is a lot of vocabulary that i didn't know but now i know the words.

    4. Once I seen this book on the shelf and picked it up, I figured this was going to be a book I liked .To make it better the author picked a very good cover. It showed me that I would have a lot to relate to in this novel. The book is basically about a small city basketball team that wasn’t doing so good until coach carter returns to the school and begins coaching again. While the catchy part about the book is that the carter isn’t really a normal coach. It’s not all about winning with him; i [...]

    5. I think that coach carter was a very serious book about how a basketball team of young teens live in Richmond Virginia. They where very childish and un mature but coach carter teaches them to become respectful young men that he knows they can be even though they live in a bad neighborhood. This book had me on the edge of my seat because it was jut so interesting and suspenseful. They wen on a twelve game winning streak and just because they didn't do there wok when coach carter specifically said [...]

    6. What i like about this book is that there are a lot of intense words in this book.I like the action in this story/movie.My favorite character in the book it have to Kyra because i think she has a lot of things going on in her life with Kenyon.When Kyra said that she was going to have a baby,then when she told Kenyon,he freaked out.Kenyon doesn't want the baby,but they don't know what to do with the baby.

    7. Coach Carter by Jasmine Jones was a very good book. Coach Carter was an amazing coach, he was always helping the students and he made them get good grades to play again. He was always supporting the team and the boys. I like books that have morals and this one teached me that if I work harder I can accomplish all my goals. I hope to see the movie someday to see if it’s as good as the book. I think Jasmine put effort on this book and this book is worth reading.

    8. i thought it was good. in the end Richmond didn't win the game against ST. Francis like all of the dumb movie who let the when at the end of the game and the story was good cruz gave up doing drugs and being in gangs

    9. Coach Carter is a fantastic book, you'll enjoy. The story line is simple, and Coach Carter teaches these boys to become better than what they are right now.

    10. I liked how it was realistic but at the same time it didn't seem so real, and i really liked that because i don't really like reading realistic books. I liked how it has suspense.

    11. I think this is a very interesting book. It has some good quotes that could help in life. I think that that me and the class all enjoyed it.

    12. The book was very inspiring cause it teaches us that no matter how hard it is you can also succed. It is a very good book to read so i recommend the book.
