I think Mike is a good book for people that like to read about Mike getting bullied by Shane Thomas. Mike is trying very hard at school. Mike likes going swimming so that he can train for the race so he can bet Shane Thomas. Mike has someone helping him to race. Her name is Riny because she has won the rhace before so that is why she is helping mike. So his can bet Shane at the race. If you like stories about swimming and bullying you could read this book without putting it down. I like the book but at the start it was boring but at the end it was good.
