I loved this book and have had lots of fun sharing this book with my 6th grade students. They laugh at all the parts of the story where I think they should or might and then they laugh at me when I'm laughing at the story. I love reading the scene where Jack rides his bike after the mosquito fogger and whipes out.

Jack is no different from every other 6th grader. He is just trying to fit in and get through school at any cost. But that is kind of difficult when he has switched schools five different times. No matter how hard he tries he can't seem to find escape from the ugliness of his teachers and the feelings of being the young, invisible son and brother at home. Until, his mom granted his wish of having a journal. This is one thing Jack would keep on him at all times and was able to call his. Jack takes you on a wild ride and shows you what the year of sixth grade looks like from his perspective, and he knows how to immediately pull you. I think it is interested how the author Jack Gantos, uses his first name for the main character, and I feel like I can completely relate to him because there are those times when I feel like documenting and recreating my life and just writing every detail I catch and making a new world for my life.I am enjoying this book and I hope to read more from this author in the future, and I give this book thumbs up. I think one curriculum connection that I could see with this book is writing an essay from the character Jack's perspective, describing, personally, how your year at school is going. Another assignment, is having children keep a journal for a couple of weeks and just writing and having time to personally reflect on themselves, like the character Jack did.

I loved the detail and description although, the end was a little bit of a let down because their dog got eaten, Gauthier neighbor tries to kill them, then it turns out they are not moving to cocoa beach after all. But other then that it was a great book!

A Kid's Review on April 27, 2012
Format: Paperback
The novel, "Heads Or Tails" by Jack Gantos is a humerous book that is about an imaginative boy named Jack. Jack faces many problems like a secret crush, an annoying young brother, a mocking sister and more in every chapter. His imagination is a big problem through out the book. His imagination leads to a fake life or death situation, to an unrealistic dream about being a pianist. I liked how the author made a typical 12-year old boy's life to a laugh-out-loud funny novel. For example, when Jack thought he had rabies,"[his] days as a detective were numbered. I had rabies." If you like realistic fiction books about everyday life with a funny twist, you will like "Heads Or Tails" by Jack Gantos.

Though not the best I've read, it's not the worst, either. I think it's a great book for ages 7-14. He's really got something here!
