What is the book about?
The book Nucklehead is an autobiography about stories from the authors life. He uses humor and sarcasm to entertain his audience and to draw them in. The book talks about his life growing up in Flint, Michigan with 5 brothers, his mother and father during the 1950's-1960's. He tells tons of humorous stories, pranks, and fun times during his childhood.
Opinion and recommendation:
My opinion of the book was that I loved it because the way he wrote it made it seem like you experienced what he experienced too. He did very well on expressing his feelings in the book and describing what he sees, hears, smells, tastes, and feels. I also enjoyed his funny stories and how sarcastic he was. One of my favorite funny stories was in the chapter called "roommates." In that chapter he told a story of when Jim, his brother, would make Jon pay for his own shirt if he wanted to wear it. I liked that story because honestly it reminded me of something I would do to my siblings. I would totally recommend this book to kids who love short, funny, and sarcastic stories.
