summary Playground summary ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook º 50 Cent 50 Cent º 0 characters Told in voice driven prose and accented with drawings and photographs making it a natural successor to The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian Loosely inspired by 50 Cent’s own adolescence and written with his fourteen year old son in mind Playground is sure to captivate wide attention and spark intense discussion. This would have been four stars for me but the time jumping just didn t make sense I can t figure out why sometimes we re experiencing events chronologically and why sometimes we re doing flashbacks to events while in the counselor s office It doesn t seem to serve a purpose and it makes things confusing And if I find it confusing I know my students willHOWEVER my students WILL like the real narrative voice and dialogue and luckily the final third of the book runs pretty much chronologically making for a good ending Many of them are going to immediately connect with Butterball even though he s a bully and pretty unlikable for much of the story As a middle school teacher I KNOW kids like Butterball I ve taught kids like Butterball And to force kids to look at the story behind Butterball is importantTh

Ugh I know that this book will appeal to certain readers And I know that those are the readers that need books to appeal to them But Well the book is just so ugh But my criticisms of it come from such an old white lady perspective I was annoyed by the fact that his father stole shoes and there was no conseuence I was annoyed that Butterball s growth was when he stood up for a little kid by menacing another kid I was annoyed that the illustration on the cover was of the celebrity author not the character And it was so hard to relate to Butterball s shame and anger over his mom being view spoiler outed hide spoiler
