I gave him a look that would have made any intelligent creature run for cover. The other players all looked at me like I was crazy. Jason played it for all it was worth. Kurt has to have a girl come to the rescue every time he falls down? Is this the sort of weakling we want on our team?
No one paid attention. The ref, however, bent over Kurt, pushing me out of his way. He looked up at Kenner. The interest level is geared to ages 10 to 14, with reading levels at a grade 2 to 4. The books use contemporary compelling stories by established authors. Certainly Sudden Impact fits these criteria.

The story is told in first person by Tina, a friend to Kurt, who is worried about his upcoming soccer game as Kurt has seemed unwell.

He needs many transfusions and a transplant. His friend Tina is a pistol and doesn't back down in getting help for Kurt. This story reminded me so much of Miss Ashley's liver ordeal. Livers are very scary when not functioning properly. Nov 27, Julie rated it liked it Shelves: Orca Currents are a hit among my striving readers.

Sudden Impact (Orca Currents (Pb)) Book Review and Ratings by Kids - Lesley Choyce
Walsh rated it it was ok. So far, I like the narrator a lot because in the very first scene, he offered to train his friend to be a great runner. I liked that because I also like to run, and I also like to help my friends to accomplish their goals. Nov 28, Yasmin Ruiz rated it it was amazing. This was one of the best book i had ever read. Or probably because it was one of the first books i started reading this year.
This book made me want to read more and more. Apr 15, Pedro gutierrez added it.
