An All Time Favorite. :)
It is a story about Trevor McKinney, a twelve year old boy who doesn’t really fit in. He has one friend, and his name is Jerry; a heroin user.
"Pay It Forward". Basically you start with one person, that person helps 3 people. The person gets no reward, but he must tell the others to pay it forward. Then those people have to help 3 others. So 1 helps 3, the three all together help 9, the nine help 27, and so on. This was all part of his Social Studies class project given to him as an extra credit assignment, "Find a way to change the world for the better, and do it." seemingly impossible Trevor found a way to do it.
Warning lang, I find the conclusion of this book so contrived, but nonetheless, it’s my kind of book.
Lastly it shows all the bad: the racism, the bullying, the abuse, the struggling, the addictions, the broken-heartedness. And also the good: the love, the hope, the faith, the optimistic side of things, and the perseverance. This book isn’t afraid to be different and it passes such an amazing message. If everyone read this and actually “Paid It Forward”, we could change the world.
May movie din sya.
