Newbery medalist Jerry Spinelli tackles the tale of cocky seventh-grade super-jock Crash Coogan, who got his nickname the day he used his first football helmet to knock his cousin Bridget flat on her backside. And he has been running over people ever since, especially Penn Webb, the dweeby, vegetarian Quaker kid who lives down the block. Through the eyes of Crash, readers get a rare glimpse into the life of a bully in this unforgettable story about stereotypes and the surprises life can bring.

                I think "Crash" By Jerry Spinelli is a good book because the beginning is a flashback and there always good for a book.This book also deals with real life drama like the school dance which is the best part in my opinion and the construction of the mall.In that case i'd rate this book a 10/10.

                  i think that "crash is a very interesting book.Crash is a book that makes the reader imagine what has been happining. A good reason to read the book is because it takls about feeling's the the main person.In my opinion in would rate Crash a 9/10
