The book Flamethrowers: Guardians of The Game by J. Alan Childs is about a boy named Kenny who lives in located the Iron Range in Minnesota. His entire life is hockey his dad played professional hockey, his brother plays collegiate hockey, his friends play hockey, he lives in a hockey town, but Kenny hates hockey. One day when Kenny goes to work with his dad he notices two boys playing lacrosse in the park, Kenny has no idea what the sport is so he starts talking to the two boys. One day Kenny is exploring a cave when he finds a stone box containing an ancient lacrosse stick, the only problem is that the stick has an evil twin that falls into the wrong hands. Kenny seeks a fortuneteller that tells Kenny he must stop the evil person at all costs. Kenny is afraid but does stand up and fight the evil beast before he can wreak havoc on the town Kenny holds so dear to his heart.
Flamethrowers: Guardians of The Game is one of the most action packed books I have ever read. Fore example, the text says “ Briggs had indeed found the red rocks and was practicing throwing the fireballs down the hill,” (page 174). This is when Briggs is possessed and he is throwing the fireballs, blowing things up and causing mass destruction. The text also says “ Kenny saw his chance and threw the fireball right at Briggs,”(page 200) This is when Kenny and Briggs are fighting in the middle of the street and Kenny nearly decapitates Briggs with a fireball.
The book is also full of suspense. The text states “How could this be the great weapon of the flamethrowers?”(Page 125) This is when Kenny first finds the lacrosse stick and he is not at all impressed. When I first read the book I was nervous that Kenny would give up but to my delight he did not. The text also says “White crane turned to Kenny. ‘ Kenny, we need to go,”(page 228). This is the end of the book and I was kind of mad because it left us on such a big cliffhanger. I was wondering where are they going and why, what’s so important?
The book is also packed with friendship. The text clearly states “‘Kenny, Ricky died in there!’”(page 55) This is when Kenny is going to go into a cave that is very dangerous and his best friend Casey is persuading him not to because she doesn’t want him to get hurt. The text also states “ ‘Did you get hurt? What were you thinking?’”(page 55) This is when Kenny is telling Casey that he went into the cave and Casey is really mad because Kenny could have gotten hurt. She was also kind of relieved because Kenny was fine and she cares about Kenny so much.
All in all this a great book that receives a 5 star rating. This book tells a tale of a boy who stands up to face certain death without an ounce of nervousness in him. This book receives the highest rating. This book is a classic for all ages.
