“ This book Hole in my Life by Jack Gantos was definitely one of my favorite books I've ever read. This book starts out with a young man living the struggle. Unsure of how he'll pay for college, unsure about how he will become successful. He's given the opportunity to make ten thousand dollars cash and take a boat around the east coast for weeks to help smuggle some hash into New York and to sell it to make profit. He was caught and sentenced to up to six years in prison.
Honestly, I enjoyed this book greatly. I don't often find books that I actually read to the end but I finished it! This book compared to others I have read is probably the best. I'm beginning to enjoy reading much more now because of this book. I just need to find the right books for me, and this one felt right. I like Gantos' writing style. I liked how at the very beginning he got right to the point. He gets to the point and is straight up with his readers. I would most definitely recommend this to friends of mine and also to any high school student.
