The Million Dollar Shot by Dan Gutman is a book that captured my interest right from the start. I loved this book and even laughed out loud at some of the scenes. It's such a fast paced book that I was able to read it in one sitting. Eddie has had a tough life, and I couldn’t help but root for him right from the start. He is someone that would be a good friend, and I especially like his determination. I also liked Annie and how she doesn’t care what other people think about her, she is who she is. This is a book that can be enjoyed by people from third grade and up. It kept my interest all the way up until the end, and after I finished reading it, I had to try the foul shot tips that Mr. Stokely teaches Eddie. You will want to try them too! It made me think about taking risks and how you can’t win if you don’t play or take the first step toward your goal. Taking a chance is scary, but if you don’t take the chance then you definitely aren’t going to succeed. Pick up this book and you will want a chance to change your life by taking a foul shot or a step in the right direction!
