    This book was fine I didn t love it, but I didn t hate it either There were things that I enjoyed, and things that I didn t like too much.Things I liked 1 The book had a cool cover I know the cover doesn t and shouldn t reflect my opinion on the book and it didn t , but it was just something I enjoyed It really reflected the book well and really expressed the rivalry in the book 2 The book seemed pretty relatable because of the fighting because everyone probably develops a rivalry or some enemy [...]

    I generally like children s and young adult books, but I go in with the expectation that they will be a cute and moderately entertaining diversion However, when reading these genres, I find that I am often very pleasantly surprised by the depth of the characters and the ingenuous, insightful telling of what can only be considered a profound story Such was the case with this book Games is an interesting look into the minds, perspectives, and motives of two bullies who enjoy nothing than picking [...]

    Great book about two boys who can t get along and the struggles they have at school and at home It is surprising what you can learn about someone while playing a game.

    The tale of two bullies, from first met to last stand, the hatred always there Games by Carol Gorman, is a book about two enemies, Mick Sullivan and Boot Quin They harbor feelings of hate towards each other The book takes place mainly at the middle school Mick and Boot attend, however the setting changes throughout the story, bringing the readers to places such as Mick or Boot s home, recreational areas such as the library or the music shop, or even Mick s vivid imagination Within the story, the [...]

    Reading children type books as an adult is difficult Not because the writing is terrible or the story and characters don t work More so because I just can t relate any .I read this with a boy I tutor or I probably would have never heard of it I enjoyed reading it with him and was excited to see it spark interest and wonder in a boy who typically doesn t enjoy reading It made him ask questions and allowed me to present questions about right wrong, friendships, and hard family situations What I fo [...]

    It took awhile for this story to take off for me, in part because I did not find the boys personalities distinctive enough to remember whose voice was narrating a given chapter Fans of books told in alternating perspectives a la Flipped may enjoy this one.Mick and Boot are sworn enemies for as long as they can remember For some reason they just can t stand each other It s only September 8th and they have had two fights at school already Instead of suspending them again,the new principal requires [...]

    Does putting I like happy endings count as a spoiler I like happy endings Even though they seem a little to mainstream, it just feels so good to end one of your page turning adventures with a smile Games by Carol Gorman is a page turner Nuff said But for the sake of adding a couple sentences into this review This book shows that 1 Some people build a facade of power 2 You should look beyond that front 3 Because little do you know, they put up that veneer because of a very grave reason and lastl [...]

    Boys will be boys just about sums up this book Boot Quinn and Mick Sullivan hate, no loathe each other Their hatred for one another started over a class project back in elementary school Now all the boys do is call each other names and beat each other up The new principal, Mr Maddox, decides to have the boys play board games to learn how to get along with each other At first, it only makes things worse especially when the boys start competing for Tabithia Slater, the hottest girl in school The b [...]

    Games by Carol Gorman was a great book I enjoyed reading it and once I started I could not put it down.I liked how the author took turns showing both Mick s and Boot s point of view about the many fights they have Near the end the book took a surprising turn that led to the end of their fights It was about two bullies who had been fighting for many years and about a principal who thinks that making them go down to the office to play games daily will fix their problems Boot and Mick know they hav [...]

    Boot and Quinn are enemies that just seem to fight constantly Finally their principal makes them meet in his office every day to play board games together in an effort to try to get them to at least find out something about each other What I love about this story is that these boys learn to tolerate one another, but they will never really get along It is realistic in that they don t suddenly become close friends It is a good lesson for students to see that everyone has reasons for why they react [...]

    2 bullies, 1 very cute girl and a whole school watching leads to some very interesting meetings with the bullies Mick big, but very uncoordinated, prefers reading over sports Boot small for his age, wants to be in a rock band After a fight at school, the new principal insists that they play board games through the noon hour with each other unusual punishment with interesting results Mick and Boot don t really know why they hate each other they just do Very good book gives you a look inside what [...]

    The story of two guys who constantly find themselves in conflict with each other The new principal decides to put them into a hour of assigned ISS each day together with the objective being that they play games to work on cooperation and getting to know each other The story is told in turn by each boy Of course, predictably, they initially hate the idea and are non cooperative, but eventually they learn about each other and gain insight and friendship.

    Janet
    Two boys who can t stop provoking each other are forced by their new principal to play games with each other each day during an in school suspension The forced time together breaks down barriers between the boys and they become, if not friends, at least, no longer enemies return return Will have some appeal to boys and game players Tension in the story is mild and could have been stronger to draw the reader in toward the stories of the two boys and their very similar families.

    Jay
    I really liked that my kids said I m really happy we re in a good family while they were listening to this book I also like the idea that people can t really be enemies once they are forced to get to know each other There are a lot of lessons about peer pressure in this book, too It s not really for younger kids, though.

    Ben
    A cool book About two bullies and they have been fighting against each other The new principal has decided that they are going to play games until they can get along The games include, Scrabble, Authors A card Game , Connect Four, Checkers, ect I thought that this book was for kids who like realistic fiction I would recommend this book to everyone.

    B.A. Wilson
    This is a good story that gives you a different perspective on two bullies These troubled boys have lots of issues and are basically enemies They re forced to spend day after day together, playing games in a small space as punishment or maybe rehab.I really enjoyed the story Unfortunately, the cover is awful, and that makes it harder to convince my students to read it.

    the principal has done it again he brings along 2bullies, who have been fighting against each other in furious battles of taunting for thousands and thousands of years, with something everybody would wish to be school work, GAMES.

    Kendall
    A Truman nominee for 2009 2010Love the idea, and the switching first person viewpoints is engaging The acceptance that develops between the two boys is slow and therefore quite realistic A decent read may be read by boys who like Tangerine and similar bad boy tales.

    Nicole
    Easy to read A good story about 2 boys who don t get along They both see that their disagrements weren t worth losing things that were important to them As a teacher, it makes you remember that students come from all kinds of families and backgrounds.

    Cory
    This was another one of those books that felt to me like it was set in the 40 s or 50 s, but that I think was set in the present The insults the boys slung at each other just seemed so tame and odd And their interactions with the dream girl were also weird.

    Tweller83
    I really liked this book about two students who are always fighting They get on each other s nerves The principal makes them come into a room off his office to play board games until they can call a truce They never really know it but they are a lot alike Good book about not bullying.

    Rene
    Two boys who always bully and fight with each other are made to play games together every day for a week in an attempt to get along Every other chapter is told from a different character s point of view Good characters I was satisfied with the conclusion.

    Kathy
    Heavy, realistic Told in alternating chapters by the boys who are forced to play Games Dysfunctional families.

    Connie
    Presents a creative way to deal with bullies, and reminds us that there is always to someone s story.

    Connie
    Nick and Boot hate each other for reasons neither can remember When the new principal sentences them to an hour together every day in the game room, they really come out swinging.
