Diary of a Witness by Catherine Ryan Hyde


Pub Date: August 25, 2009

Summary: They taunt you. They trip you. They break one.

One day can change everything. In one day, someone can snap.

Will and Ernie both don't have many friends at school, just each other.

They have a few things in common, but they have one major one: the school jocks.

The jocks must think that bullying is a new sport. It's all they seem to focus on lately.

Ernie and Will always walk the halls in together.

There's supposed to be strength in numbers, right?

But one day, Will has the worst day of all.

In front of his eyes, Ernie sees Will snap.

Loss. Humiliation. Anger.

Every thing's getting to Will all at once in great numbers.

Ernie doesn't know what to do.

Should he join Will in getting revenge?

Should he tell on Will and risk death?

Is the possibly a third choice, another way?

Rating: 4 Stars

Review: I really enjoyed Diary of a Witness. When I first started it, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was hoping it would be really good, and it was(: I loved the point of view. I haven't really read many books told from a guys POV, just the books by John Green. Every author writes differently, so I guess you could say that I had SOME expectations, but not many. I could have had higher expectations though because Catherine Ryan Hyde I truly think she would have met thing. This is a really good book, at least I think so. I can't wait to see what other people have to say about Diary of a Witness. But, I think more people should read this. It definitely teaches you something about bullying. I actually learned some things while reading this book. I hope that when others read Diary of a Witness by Catherine Ryan Hyde, they do too!
