"Swallowing Stones" by Joyce McDonald
July 4th- Michael's 17th birthday. It's the day he should just relax and have fun enjoying his party. Nothing could go wrong, right? WRONG!!!
For Michael's birthday, his grandfather gives him a rifle that he had as a boy. Michael is proud of it and shows it off. He decides to try it out-no one would hear it. There are fireworks going off.
The next day Michael takes his driving test and hears a report over the radio. A man was shot and no one knew how. Michael knows it had to be him.
Will Michael come clean about the accident or will he "Swallow the Stone" and keep it a secret?
This was an excellent book.It deserves a 5 out of 5. This book will have the reader on the edge of their seat waiting to see what will happen. It was hard to stop reading this book, it was that good!!! I would recommend this book to all readers.
