This book just cracks me up, perfect for young boys!! Nate reminds me so much of my 11 year old son with his sneaky covert opps and his actions towards his sister! Times of boredom drifts him into his own little world where he becomes “Nate Rocks” who is the hero or the cool kid! In this book Nate goes to Summer camp with one of his best friends…and his sister. He has many adventures as Nate and as Nate Rocks!
Speaking of my 11-year old son… he recently got into trouble for his grades so after reading this book I made him write up a review:
The book Nate Rocks the Boat is a fun adventure packed with thrilling turns. It is a cool adventure about a kid named Nate Rocks who I think has a disorder that when he has a paper and pencil he pretends to help someone while drawing it on a piece of paper. I like the book I think it is really funny story about a kid. I personally would have never thought to put a kid with a disorder in a book so, i think it was a great idea to put that in a book. I would describe the book as: funny, action packed, thrills and chills. In the book Nate Rocks is going to go to summer camp but before he goes he invites his friend to go to summer camp with him. before they go Nate gets hit in the face with a horse shoe and gets a black eye. he doesn’t know what to tell the people at the camp because he knows they will ask because its very hard to miss. Find out your selves and go on a thrilling adventure with Nate Rocks.
