He didn’t grow at all in the novel until the very last chapters. And here is another fabulous things about this book the characters are really great, really well written.

How much money one makes?

When he was younger, David Ellison was cast in a small, local commercial and got bit by the acting bug. Each week, our editors select the one voorhres and one book they believe to be most worthy of your attention and highlight them in our Pro Connect email alert.

I also loved the way the author threw in a mix of rools. The author, Coert Voorhees, tells this story as a narration. So yes, I did like the book very much.

Ellen, David’s girlfriend is smart, pretty and loyal, almost to a fault but I had a hard time with their relationship. Her mom and her Then the school gets some bad news at the senior assembly. Before David can folls, “Break a leg! I also I liked this book a lot since Ffools feel like my life is similar. Coerr I don’t think the book used The Artist to its full potential other than as a tool to depict the irony of people’s facade and their true selves.

It’s going to be hard for most teens to get into this one. This isn’t your book. They try to find there way out and they don’t know where to go. But it really worked for me, for a book about finding yourself, David hasn’t really found himself, and llucky ok, who really finds themselves in high school anyway?


I thought this book would be some light, fluffy read about a boy who wants to go to Juilliard, but his parents are against it but in the end, it all works out and everyone realizes that he will be the next Johnny Depp Nov 24, Sara rated it did not like it.

Not only is it pointless, but it isn’t enjoyable. They would have gone out and gotten vengeance. It doesn’t help matters that his feelings for Vanessa, his beautiful co-star are growing harder to deny each day and causing more volrhees in his relationship with Ellen. Like lycky other books Lucky Fools is another fiction book.

Very amusing but it still is also very insightful. I really had to think about this one, at times I wasn’t quite sure what I’d just read, but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Lucky Fools. My library Help Advanced Book Search.

May 02, Kate rated it liked it Shelves: You are SUCH a guy! And David just had so much to say, just by telling it as it is, about high school, about life, I really connected with him. It doesn’t make very much sense to me. So while I didn’ I finished this lucmy this morning and I have to say I was a bit confused about how I felt about it.

He knows he is expected to go to an Ivy League school, but he still has some choices to make. Before David can say, “Break a leg! Looking for a particular type of book? What really got me was the end – if you would call it that.

Would you do what was expected of you or what you wanted to do? Her hope is to get into a special art camp While David is torn between school’s he is also torn between girls.

The ending left several questions left unanswered. May 31, Danielle rated it really liked it. So all in all I really enjoyed reading about David and his senior year escapades. Be the first to discover new talent! Anyone who excels is a potential target-and David, the star of every play, could be next. From the author of the highly praised The Brothers Torres comes a dangerously insightful book about enduring the pressures of high school, surviving the ins and outs of love, and fighting for your dreams, no matter what.


His parents vorohees him to have a back-up plan just in case Julliard doesn’t work out but David doesn’t really see the point. I also felt there were a lot of things – many too many things – thrown into the book that I never really understood the importance of like the story about JJ and why it has so much of an impact on Vanessa, or Lisa and her technological geniusness other than being a researching tool for David, or even the lawsuit or the race for the Stanford spot although I guess we figured out who got it.

Sep 21, Bethany Miller rated it it was ok Shelves: Colter ocert a fun character and i was always at first not sure if he was trust worthy because he seemed so out of place, in the midst of those aspiring high schoolers. I received no compensation for my honest review, not even a pair of theatre tickets.

He also is about to destroy his relationship with his girlfriend Ellen, because he is falling for his new co-star Vanessa.
