TLC Book Tours Presents: The Pact by Mitchell S Karnes

The Pact 

Scott Addison never set out to be a hero.  But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t run away from your destiny.  On the heels of his father’s death, Scott and his mother move from Iowa City, Iowa to the small Southern Illinois town of Meadowbrook.
 Scott just wanted to blend in…to observe quietly…to be one of the kids.  Unfortunately for Scott, his instincts, heart, and integrity took over on his first day at his new middle school.  Scott stood up to and faced down three larger boys torturing a wiry little boy named Paul.  No one should ever have to stand alone.
 This simple act of kindness and chivalry put Scott in the midst of the conflict and on the receiving end of the bullies’ antics.  When the hazing goes too far, Scott decides it is time to take a stand…no matter the cost.  Of course that’s the price heroes must pay.

My Review:

Taking games to extreme. This book highlights what a lot of teens go through, and adults seem to turn their blind eye. Yes they try, but the kids are hurting. Not only are their bullies, but we see why they are acting out.
Although this is a teen read, I would recommend that parents every where read this. We see first hand how a game can get out of control, and dangerous. There is also the dealing with a lot of grief, the loosing of a parents and grandparents.
I found that once I started reading this, I could not put it down. I greatly admired the main character, he is every parents dream child, but dealing with heavy burdens.

I received this book through TLC Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
