A high-school shot putter, Henry Chevrolet, known as Indian, says no to a gambler who tries to bribe him to fix a contest in Michael French's absorbing novel for young adults. Mr. Perrin thought the book ''a little too short for its plot'' but praised it for conveying ''a sense of lives as they are really lived such as only a small minority of novelists in each generation can or even want to manage.

THE THROWING SEASON
MICHAEL FRENCH
This story takes place in Arkansas around the 80�s. The main character is Indian; he�s a Cherokee Indian that goes to Consolidated High School. He�s a tall muscular guy that has big sorrowful eyes and a look of determination always on his face. He�s a great shot-putter. In the book Indian meets a new friend, Golly. At first Indian doesn�t like him, but after they push each other to their limits during the track meets Indian decides to help him train for next year. They become great friends. Indian and Golly both advance to sate competition. But only Indian moved on to Nationals. Then a car dealer; Noah Standish takes Indian for a ride in his car. He tells Indian to not finish any better than 4th in the national competition. Because he bet that Indian would loose state and he ended up losing bunches of money. He offers Indian 5,000 dollars to blow nationals. In the book his parents Jimmy and Lucy are concerned that Noah will do something to Indian if he doesn�t do what he�s told. Jimmy doesn�t want him to go to college. So he doesn�t want Indian to go to the national competition so he won�t get a college scholarship to go to UCLA. You�ll have to read this book to find out what happens. I enjoyed this book because it was surprising and full of action. The author could have done a better job describing the events better. But he did a great job on describing the characters. The best thing about this book is that it�s not easy to determine what�s going to happen next. It keeps you guessing. I have never read another book by this author but if I�m looking for a book I will consider his name.

In the begging of the book Indian is training for the state shot-putting finals. Then a gut named Golly showed up and thought that he could beat Indian in the state finals. The Coach decided to let Golly compete in the state finals after he saw him throw. Then at the state finals Indian met a man named Noah Standish who wants him to lose the meet on purpose and he will give him 9,000 dollars. Indian refuses and wins the meet. Later a scout asks Indian to come to UCLA and be on the track team. I really like this book because it gave me more facts on shot putting. Another reason is that it shows people that you don't have to take bribes to lose something you love on purpose.

This book only got better when you came closer to the end. It started off extremely slow. I blame that, mainly, on the number of charcters that needed to be introduced at the beginning of the book. It's mainly about an athlete nicknamed "Indian" who loves the shot put. He is one of the best and hopes to eventually break the world record. This young adult already has many opportunities ahead of him. Several well respected colleges have sent scouts to talk to him but Indian only wants to be able to go to UCLA. He's only a junior in high school and has already reached the position of the best shot putter on his team...
