I read Loser by: Jerry Spinelli. In Loser the main charector is Zinkoff. Zinkoff is all happy at the begining and doesn’t realize hat no one really likes him (1st - 3rd grade). But then around 3rd grade he starts to realize that he is an outcast. Zinkoff is still a positive thinker and is very nieve throughout the whole book and tries to think of ways to be happy and make people like him. Zinkoff never really ends up fitting in and turns out to be an outcast the whole book. If you like books that aren’t fantasy and are just relly normal, this is a good book for you.
In Loser I liked how the auther made it so that all the kids Zinkoffs age didn’t like him but all of his neighbors thought he was so nice, and just the most wonderfull kid. The only thing about how the auther (Jerry Spinelli) wrote the parts talking about the neighbors, is that he never went into that much detail. This made you wonder who the neighbors truly were, questions would always be popping into your head. Other than that I still really like how the auther made itleast some people like Zinkoff.
I did not like how the auther made Zinkoffy really, really nieve. I thought it was annoying, when that bully was trying to take his hat and Zinkoff was like, “Oh, i’m sorry. This must be your hat if you want it. You probabbly just left it at the store where I got it.”. Then he gave the bully his hat. Zinkoff needs to open his eyes more and not let people walk all over him so much. I also did not like how the auther made the book so that it was really predictable and boring. Whenever something big happened it wasn’t exciting at all because you knew it was going to happen before it happened. The way the auther wrote the book it was as if he was talking to a six year old. He didn’t make anything exciting it was all,:” He walked down to the cellar. He ran back up because it was scary. Then he took a deep breath.” It was so Boring!
I think that you would like the book Loser If you have a hard time reading. This book is really easy to read. It can be confusing at parts, like hard to tell what’s happening but it’s pretty easy to figure it out. If you like reading about things that are real and could happen. If you like fantasy and fiction you should not read this book. Overall if you like easy to read, pretty boring books Loser is perfect for you.
