Rikers HighMartin was sitting on the front stoop of his apartment building minding his own business when he was arrested for something he didn't even mean to do Five months later he's still locked up on Rikers Island in a New York City jail Just when it seems things couldn't get much worse Martin is caught between. Don’t you think it would suck if you had to go to jail for a crime you didn’t mean to commit The book Rikers High by Paul Volponi is a great book and it’s about a guy named Martin who goes to jail at 15 years old because of a setup The way this happened is he was sitting on his porch when some undercover cops came and asked him where to buy drugs Then the they arrested him five minutes later and then before you know it he’s been in jail for five months and counting waiting for his turn to see a judge while there he experiences a lot of things and how it feels to be in jail This genre of this book is realistic fiction which is one of my favorite genres and by looking on everybody else’s TBR list they like realistic the most too so this will be a great book for them Even though realistic fiction books are great this one is the top of all realistic fiction books The setting takes place mostly in jail but besides that it has multiple settings which they don’t spend a lot of time in so the main setting is on Rikers island The people who would enjoy this book are people who like to read about peoples life’s and what they go through in their life Also people who like to read about the life of a criminal What I learned from this book is that to watch what you say if someone ask you something like where could I buy drugs Plus if I ever had to go to jail for something you have to be tuff in there and stand your ground because if you don’t inmates will mess with you until you show them whose boss

Characters é Rikers High ï PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ [PDF / Epub] ☂ Rikers High Author Paul Volponi – Johns-cycling-diary.co.uk Martin was sitting on the front stoop of his apartment building minding his own business when he was arrested for something he didn't even mean to do Five months later he's stilN a lesson valuable than any taught in class An award winning author Paul Volponi is uniuely ualified to tell Martin's story because he taught on Rikers Island for six years He originally wrote Rikers for an adult audience The book has been revised for young adults and is being republished as Rikers High. If I'm being honest about this book I did not think it was a very good book at all It constantly repeated itself in every chapter and I felt as if I was waiting for something exciting to happen in which nothing ever seemed to keep me interested in the book It was very slow and extremely predictable Although it did show an accurate representation of how the jail system works for minors it didn't portray everything that goes on It basically told a story about a boy who lived in the jail and continued to go to school and meet friends but nothing ever happened to him except for the one fight he accidentally got in the way of I did enjoy though when Martin received a letter from his father it was personal to him and was referred back to several times throughout the novel I liked what his father had said about traps and holes in the jail system because it's true not only in the book it's true in real life I do however wish that the book had just a little bit excitement but unfortunately it's not a book I would ever recommend to a friend or family member
