Face to Face

Author: Marion Dane Bauer
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

In the novel Face to Face, Marion Dane Bauer writes about the unpredictability of life by describing how the main character thinks he will get through things and how he should keep his options open. There was very good and descriptive writing in this book. Like when Michael [the main character] gets his bolt action .22 rifle for his birthday from his stepdad. The author describes it well. It was brown, with a black scope, the size .22 bullet, and the black barrel. Also when his dad, his girl friend Cil, and Michael went river rafting in Colorado. The current of the water, the color of the water, the rock, and just the movement of everything. Then when they were camping in the woods. The size of the trees and the woods.
