One boy loves hockey and has
a struggle not only with the game, but with his parents allowing him to
play it. Another boy hates the game, has a natural talent for it and has
a father pushing him to be great. This story is about how they meet, become
friends and how one helps out the other admit that he has a drinking problem.
If you like hockey, and know how it feels to have to pick between something
you want to do and something you know you ought to do, you'll probably
enjoy this book.
In the book "The Boy Who Drank
Too Much" the main character's name is Buff. Buff is a teen who has a dad
who is always pressuring him to be the star in the sport of hockey. When
Buff plays hockey he drinks alcohol to calm down his nerves in the games,
but some time he drinks too much. In this book the lesson learned
is that drinking doesn't calm thing or solves things. Instead it makes
things worse and even more violent. You will never forget how real friends
can really have your back and protect you ,even in the hardest times.
I enjoyed the novel because it tells you about a real story of two real
teenagers and drinking problems. It also shows you how important friendship
is. (Carlos D., student)
