  • This was on my Overdrive wishlist and I have no idea why.I listened to it this week because I'm waiting for a long audiobook to come in so I can't start a full-on story right now. I prefer listening to stories over music when I'm doing my job (less of a chance I'll burst into song in the middle of a quiet room. Also, cuts down on chair dancing which, from what I hear, isn't a safe workplace activity) so I've decided the solution to my waiting period is to listen to middle grade books. They rarel [...]


  • Brady's life is changed by a meteroite - that crashes through the roof and lands on his bed. From that improbable beginning comes a story of Brady and his cousin Quinn and their constant quests for excitement. Brady gets a little more than he bargained for this time. The plot moves along nicely, but the writing was a little too plodding and the ending too pat. Lots of good information about the area around the Crazy Horse National Monument,but that's just what it felt like - an author giving us [...]


  • Go Big or Go Home was a really great book. At first I didn't think it would be all that great and I put it off to the end of winter recess to read (it was required). I ended up really liking it, and read it in two days. A teen named Brady and his cousin Quinn are having a normal summer of adventure, but they end up finding a valuable space rock that crashed through Brady's roof. When Brady accidently drools on the rock, he gets super human powers. He saves a little kid from a bull and beats all- [...]


  • The only things about this book that I enjoyed was that the main character named the meteorite FRED that crashed through his roof and went through his bed. Nearly killing him if it weren't for watching the skys that very night.


  • Brady Steele watches in awe as a meteorite crashes through the roof of his bedroom. Brady immediately calls up his cousin, Quinn. They both love all things extreme, and this is the most extreme thing ever! The meteorite is one of the rarest meteorite ever found. Professor Rip Ripley wants to study a sliver of it in search of extraterrestrial bacteria. With each new day, Brady discovers that he's able to do strange and wonderful feats. At the same time, he's developing some frightening symptoms. [...]


  • Go Big or Go Home by Will Hobbs is about an average boy named Brady who's bedroom is attacked by a meteorite him and his cousin, Quinn name Fred. Fred gives Brady newly profound superpowers; speed and strength. They both find out that Fred carries dormant microorganism that gives Brady a sickness that makes him weak and might also cause paralysis.

  • This book was about a teen boy who was watching a meteorite shower one night and one crashed through his roof! He names it Fred. His cousin Quin and him both love extreame things and the meteorite is the most extreme thing that they have encountered yet! I loved this book. I was VERY action packed. I would recommend this book to boys and girls of anyage (even adults) who love action books but not violent action.


  • There were a few things in this book that were a bit dorky. However, my 11-year-old son, who is not a big fan of reading, found the plot compelling and the book easy enough to read and understand. He enjoyed reading it every night before he went to bed. That's enough of an endorsement for me to find the book worthwhile, and I didn't find the book objectionable in any way.



  • “Go BIG or Go Home”Brady Steele was a simple boy who lived in Hill City, South Dakota. He lived with his dad who worked at Crazy Horse on the monument, his mom who stayed at home and his two little sisters Jodi and Rae. His family wasn’t poor but they were only an average family. Brady’s mom and sisters were in Iowa for the last few weeks of the summer with their grandparents but Brady didn’t go with them anymore cause of his asthma was so bad and they lived on a farm plus they had dog [...]

  • Listening to this book was interesting. The reader tried to sound like he was an extreme biker in the 90’s. Story not great, but interesting enough for me to not turn it off. Before I listened to this I was trying to listen to a well known author who book I couldn’t get through. The other author spent way to much time giving back stories on characters who I had no idea how they connected to the story and none of the characters seemed relevant to what I thought the story was about. I’m sayi [...]

  • *South Dakota*This was a quick read, more of a boy book, probably middle school or early high school aged kids. I liked that this book was pretty current, focusing somewhat on America's economic problems. There is even mention of Michigan auto workers moving to Wyoming for work. Also, the building of the Crazy Horse memorial was mentioned frequently. I think the author paints a good picture of the state by including landmarks, like Mt. Rushmore and discussing things that the boys do; such as fis [...]

Our 6th grade used to use his book Far North when we studied Canada and one year, we invited him to speak to our kids.

  • I'm really having a hard time deciding what rating to give this book.There are some things I really liked about it. The writing style is a breezy, slang-filled kidspeak. It definitely feels like a young teenage boy experience. I felt right there with the main character, Brady. Additionally, the relationships between the Brady and his cousin, as well as with his neighbors, seem perfect. The dialogue has just the right balance between caring and slamming.It also has an interesting topic: unusual m [...]
