They Said It Not Me
A Review of Miracle Boys by Jacqueline Woodson
Oh man! I loved this book Miracle's Boys. This book is definilty a classroom classic. Now I dont want to be a spoiler, but this book is about three boys who live in Harlem and are growingup on their own. Their mom died of diabetes and their father died trying to save someone else. I'm not going to tell you anything else, you just have to read the book! So read this teriffic book and you will look at life an entirely different way. A Carefree Read", October 4, 2006
I must say this book didnt particularly catch my intrest at first, but after reading the description o the back, i thought it would be cool. Boy was i wrong. This book had a good story but was very slow! I mean theres barely any action and good teen drama in it!So to sum it up.... This book was a little less than OK.
THE BOOK BANDIT
p.s yes i DID see the special for this book on THE-N and i thought it was ALOT better than the book (suprisingly).
A Kid's Review
the reason why i like the book miracles boys is that it is based on an african american family living in harlem new york. the family is run by their 18 year old brother tyree. they are all borthers. one "the youngist" is lafayette, the middle child" charley and the oldest brother tyree. their parents are both dead. their dad died in a freezing cold pond trying to save a ladys dog. their mom died in a car crash. the middle brother charley was sent to a juvinile detention center for robbing a store. this book is a great book because it has a lot of action and suspense.
I Truly Pity the Fool
I started the week talking about pitiful African American Male characters on TV, well the future is not much brighter not if TV land has anything to do with it
(CBS/AP) If Dr. Phil can dispense advice, why not Mr. T?
The TV Land network announced today that it will start "I Pity the Fool," a series where "The A-Team" star travels across the country dispensing inspiration and advice.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Mr. T. said that "the 'T' stands for talking." And that's what he's going to do: "talk it up."
In the series, which debuts in October, Mr. T will offer help to people struggling with personal or professional problems.
The former TV star rejects any comparisons with Dr. Phil, adding: "You're a fool — that's what's wrong with you. You're a fool if you don't take my advice."
Mr. T was born Laurence Tureaud in Chicago, Ill. He was a pro wrestler in the '80s and '90s, often sparring with Hulk Hogan. He became a household name when he appeared as a regular character on the hit show "The A-Team," which premiered on NBC Jan. 23, 1983.
"I Pity The Fool" will be produced by Lionsgate in association with Left/Right Films and Remag Guerilla.
