Prove It, Josh

Average Rating:
Rate this:
Eleven-year-old Josh's summer is getting off to a rough start. Instead of being out on the water in his sailing dinghy, he's stuck at the library with the latest in a long string of tutors. Josh is dyslexic--and since he moved out west to live with Dad, a whole new crop of kids has been teasing him about his reading problems.

When a mean classmate bets Josh that he can't beat her in an upcoming boat race, Josh isn't too worried. With his brother Matt as his racing crew, he knows he can win. But when Matt bails on him, Josh's anxiety goes into overdrive. If he loses the race, he'll have to read aloud on Literacy Day--his worst nightmare!

Just when things seem hopeless, help comes from some unexpected new friends. Will it be enough for Josh to prove what he's made of?

I liked this book. The race part was fun.

This book was a bit funny. I think it was funny because Josh was 11 years old and he did not know how to read well. I was never thinking that you could dive in to a ocean that there are boats sailing but Josh did to get his dads clanks. It was sad for him that he wanted to go sailing but he had to go to a reading tutor. This book was a pretty long chapter book but it didn't have many hard words. I would recommend this book to grade 3-5.

When I read the back of the book I thought it would be interesting, but when I was actually reading it, I didn't enjoy it. I would rate this book 6/10 :()

I really liked this book! I really liked the ending when Josh said: "You'll have to read the book to find out." Since I really love this book, I would wish that there would be a second book like the Hunger Games series!!! XD
