Do you like excitement, a lot of action, guns, and revenge? If you do than this is the book for you! I liked that it has so much action and has a great ending. Tyray is the main character in this story he is tall and very muscular. The climax in this book is amazing! When Tyray is pointing the gun at Darrell and it's pouring down rain and Tyray is hesitating to shoot... Read "The Gun" to find out what happens.

The Gun "Please don't shoot me!" Darrel cried, lying in a cold, wet, dark alley. What if someone wanted revenge? What if that person had a gun pointed at your head? In the book The Gun this is the situation for Darrel. Tyray Hobbs wants revenge on Darrel, and has a gun to get it. This book is filled with action, once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down. Karma plays a big part in this book, when a big, strong, angry, dishonest bully gets what he used to give. The conflict between Tyray and himself involves making bad decisions and deciding whether to shoot Darrel, himself, or put the gun down. This fun and exciting book is definitely recommended. It is an easy read that you will truly love.

Hello. If you are reading this then you probably looking at buying one or several of the Bluford books. The Gun, I think, really captivates the reader. There is really only one main character in this book and his name is Tyray. Tyray is having troubles at home and at school. He is fighting with friends, family, and DARRELL. Will Tyray make the right decision against all this? Will Tyray turn everything around to the way it was, as a bully. You might want to try reading this great breathtaking, heart stopping book and any of the other books in the Bluford Series if you get captivated in this great book. Hope you enjoy it like I did. Have fun reading!

Part of the popular Hi-Lo series, Bluford High, this short chapter book covers serious life issues that many high school age kids face. Everything from abuse to violence to racism to self-esteem, hi-lo readers in urban, working-class areas may find this book relatable to their own lives. Although the reading level is appropriate for younger readers, the content may not be as appropriate. Use this book to encourage reluctant 13-18 year old readers to read.

This story is really good. It tells u about a bully and a boy who beats him up. The lesson for this story is payback comes back even harder.

I choose The Gun for my open choice book because it is a good suspense and action book. It is also about actual real life storys. Thats why i also like this book . The Gun is about Tyray Hobbs a teen age kid the goes to bluford high. He is the 'big boss' at school. He beats up all the kids and take there lunch money. Everyone is scared of Tyray . Tyray is always in trouble for the same reasons bullying. But his reputation has come to a end when a new kid Darrell Mercer came to bluford high. Tyray seen the new kid and tryed messing with him, but Darrell didn't take his crap . Darrell beat up Tyray at lunch . Darrell broke Tyrays wrist. Till that day Tyray had a reputation . Tyray was super embarrassed and mad at what had happened . So he thought of ways to get revenge back on Darrell and gain his reputation again in school. And his solution was to buy a gun . The Gun was a very good , i liked the whole entire book.

Former troubled teen bully Tyray Hobbs tries to get revenge after Darrell Miller takes him down in the lunchroom in front of the whole school . Tyray Hobbs loses his reputation once the tables turns . The only way he thought people would respect him again was to get a gun .The only way to get the gun was to get $150 So he lied to a girl name lark so he could get money for a gun. I Would recommend the gun to someone who loves action because the gun is &amp; action packed book two examples of why the gun is action packed is because Tyray Hobbs dad beats him &amp; Tyray he gets bullied by other teen kids .
