Response by Paul Volponi is a book about three African Americans a teen father named Noah and his two friends Asa and Bonds who go to a nearly all white neighborhood with the intentions of stealing a car Everything seems to go smooth until they are almost caught so they flee with no car at all and decide to grab a slice instead At Mario s pizza Noah and his friends are confronted with three Italian teens that start yelling racial slurs Noah isn t looking for trouble and they best decide to leave While walking home Noah Asa and Bonds are met up once again with the three Italian teens who pass them while riding in their car with the fat kid of the pack swinging a baseball bat The fat kid Scat tells his buddies Spenelli and Rao to pull over furious that earlier Asa motioned as if he was going to steal Spenelli s gold chain As soon as they pull over Noah Asa and Bonds bounce Noah is unlucky he trips and is beat down by the crew Scat fractures Noah s skull leaving him with his skull being stitched up Throughout the book Paul Volponi expresses how Racism is still an ongoing issue in the world an issue that needs to dissolve for the good of humanity Noah Noah s dad Noah s Grandmother Mr Dowling and Scat are complex characters Noah is a determined responsible teen After he got his girl Deshawna pregnant he had to step up and tell her father the truth When the truth was out he didn t hesitate to support his girlfriend he had to find a way to balance his education and his job at McDonalds His job at McDonalds didn t always pay enough so his dad gave him a hand He didn t like that he received this help since it was his mistake for getting his girlfriend pregnant he knew he had to take all the responsibility Noah s dad and Mr Dowling inspired Noah and motivated him Noah s dad leads Noah to be inspired by telling him what it takes to be a man the ualities His dad motivates him because the extra amount of money he receives makes him care about his grades and be successful in school to dream big to make him believe that he will actually become an engineer Mr Dowling inspires Noah because he is the teacher that gives him the highest grade on his report card and his words touch Noah s heart that it makes him feel a sense of pride inside him something he hasn t felt in a long time Noah s grandmother is like Noah s second mother she helps out Noah by caring for his daughter Destiny Love when he or Deshawna are unable to Noah s grandmother turns out to be an accepting person At first she hated Caucasians because they were brutal against African Americans but after Mr Hendricks a Caucasian racist gym teacher saves her from a heart attack she comes to an understanding She realizes that no matter the color of people skins everyone in the world are all brothers and sisters Scat is the kind of person in society today that doesn t change Scat proves to be a racist a careless person from the start Throughout the book he denies what he committed was not a hate crime after he clearly shouted out racial slurs at Noah and his friends Scat regrets what he did and knows that he shouldn t have done it but if he knew it was wrong then at the time being he knew that swinging the bat was not a smart move to make The setting is one of the most important components of the text The beat down of Noah takes place in Hillsboro a nearly all white neighborhood Noah is African American and is assaulted by three Caucasians If the book did not take place in Hillsboro it wouldn t be as clear that a hate crime had taken place It wouldn t be as clear because Hillsboro has had a hate crime before Exactly 20 years ago in Hillsboro a man named Michael Sheffield was struck by a car as he fled from an angry mob of white teenagers After a second attack people began accusing Hillsboro as a racist neighborhood Conflict is the whole purpose of the book Paul Volponi clearly explained the conflict in this book which is a hate crime that took place A hate crime that involved the beating of an African American teen by three Caucasian teens because of racism Throughout the book after the attack the conflict is also justice how long each person should be sentenced Good diction is clearly expressed by Paul Volponi Paul Volponi is the kind of author that doesn t do too much when writing his books When he writes he manages to tell what s going on without adding sophisticated words Volponi sets the example that you don t need complex words for description and to hook your readers in the story in order for your writing to be appealing Major themes are expressed in this text Racism is what the whole book is about The hate crime committed is an example of racism All around Noah racism follows him his gym teacher Mr Hendricks gives Caucasians respect than African Americans which leads Noah to think Mr Hendricks is a racist When Noah arrives late to his work his boss makes him wear a clown suit giving him a tube of white makeup Noah refuses to wear the makeup and throws it away In the end people complain about the clown being black and the boss yells at Noah Since when did our clown turn black Racism is also expressed when the kids at school wear the Free Spenelli shirts even at gym Noah is insulted that Mr Hendricks allows it not only does this anger him but the fact that people think Spenelli is innocent after he was clearly one that was involved in the assault Justice is also noted Justice is showed to be of importance because Noah is prepared to go against Scat in court after Spenelli was sentenced All eyes are focused on how long Scat will pay for what he did after Spenelli was sentenced and Rao was let go innocent for cooperating with the police since his dad is a detective people being concerned they would be let go easily because of their race Lastly responsibility is a big theme Responsibility is important because it shows how responsible a male teen has to be if they have to take care of a child if they are a teen father Volponi shows us through Noah how we have to balance education and a part time job to get through life The lesson that Mr Volponi teaches us is that before we consider having sexual relations with another person we should take the time to think deeply of what can happen the conseuences that were going to have to face if the girl gets pregnant the sacrifices were going to have to make how our life can change after the pleasure we receive for a period of time Before we think about doing it we should ask ourselves is it really worth it Overall Response is another well executed book by Paul Volponi Paul Volponi is an author that has never let me down he is the author that I do not hesitate to read his books Every time I read his books I know it s worth my time he doesn t do too much in his stories and he has a uniue writing style that will hook the reader in and make the reader want to finish the book in one opening Response showed how racism still impacts our world today it made me feel upset how racism still exists today and how people can t get over the fact that we are all eual how we are brothers and sisters God s children Everyone in the world should get along with each other and stop hating on each other for who they are skin is just a color who we are inside is what matters the most

Volponi does it again with another short novel that is fast paced and filled with hard to answer ethical uestions Noah and his friends go to an Italian American neighborhood to steal a Lexus Before they are able to they are jumped by three boys who shout racial epithets and beat Noah s head in with a baseball bat Noah survives the attack and finds himself at the center of a racial controversy Was the other boy right to defend their community from theft Or was Noah and his friends targeted because they are black The fast moving prose is interspersed with police interviews of the suspects adding to the drama Volponi does not come up with simple answers to the complicated uestions that are raised here Part of his skill is in formulating the scenario and the uestions but allowing the teen reader to make up their own mind Even the attackers are not cardboard each emerging as a person themselves So much is done in such a short number of pages that it is staggering Noah s own family is not stereotypical at all His complicated relationship with the mother of his baby girl is eually deep and complex Noah s eventual response to his attack is nuanced and matureSure to be a popular read among teen boys who have probably already discovered Volponi this book is appropriate for ages 14 18
