    1. This was just an okay book. I'm not sure I would recommend it to too many young people. I felt it enforced gender roles pretty strongly and it played off of a few old stereotypes (particularly the homeless person)that I would argue are not worth exposing young people to.What really works in this book is the humour. There are some genuinely hilarious moments because of the character dynamics between the three boys and the survival situations they are placed in. The coping mechanisms of thirteen-y [...]

    2. Wow. Seriously, jules talks waay too much. but i guess that's why he narrated the book. still. it seems strange to me that they wld make a trio. cory probably isnt really that good of a friend. and interruption #3 really surpised me. i think thats the reason scrimger wrote the book. i really did assume that he was white. it makes you think twice about the world. and the part about the snake really surpised me too. i thought this was supposed to be this rambling "last journey of childhood" but th [...]

    3. Three boys: one athletic, one chatty, one clueless. Chris, Jules and Cory set off on a rafting adventure down the ravine behind their neighborhood. They encounter some uppity private school kids, some downity (I just made that word up) homeless hobos, and they run into some trouble that Jules has a hard time talking them out of. In Richard Scrimger's Into the Ravine, you’ll spend a good portion of this book wondering, as do the guys, just who or what is Bonesaw? Whatever, it’s just as scary [...]

    4. This is probably enjoyable for young readers, but I had a hard time. I kind of got into some parts, while other parts seemed out of place. Young adult fiction is one of my favorite genres, but this one might have been just a little too young for me.

    5. Jules is chatty. Chris is the best of the three. Cory is a bit slow. On their last journey of childhood, they come across amazing people and Jules gets his first kiss.

    6. Got this book in a Little Free library in Minneapolis and while, I thought it might be a YA book, was not sure until I got into it more. Was Ok for a quick read.

    7. Not great but okay. It took awhile to become at all interesting so I think it may not appeal to many kids.
