This book is about a small town and their football team. The team just hired a black coach with very few black players. The coach has a divided team and has to unite them. He takes them up to a camp where they have to learn to work together.When they come back they are no longer accepted and have to win to get the town back on their side and have to learn to accept the whole team.

Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Posted in book review tagged , , at 4:38 pm by blueblazeslib

Uncle Tom’s Cabin was my favorite book because of several reasons. I loved how emotional the book got during the climax of the book. It portrayed the acts of slave labor and slave punishment very realistically, which I loved, in comparison to Huck Finn, which was a more comical book, but did not portray the slave escape that realistically.
