Personal Response
The book Skud is about four different boys named: Tommy, Brad, Shane and Andy.
This novel covers all of their views and troubles in high school.

Andy is a young actor trying to achieve success in the future by becoming an actor. But gets into a little conflict with another character (Tommy) because he is very close with Sheila who happens to be Tommy's girlfriend and this bothers him. Due to this, Tommy fights Andy and gives him bruises and cuts. Then out of the group of by standers another character (Shane) the leader of the TMR gang comes and claims to be Andy's back up. Andy is confused because him and Shane have never spoken to each other before and now Shane is here backing him up.

Brad plays for a rep hockey team and is trying to make it to the professional hockey league. He is trained by his father. He has many skills but because he is so violent he is moved to the 4th line on his hockey team and his place gets taken by a girl and this upsets him.
During practice smoke is coming out of the locker because some random flame ignited the flammable products the girl had and now the whole rink was finished. Everyone thought Brad did it because he was upset that he had gotten replaced by her.

Then because Brad had never told Tommy his best friend that he had been put back to the 4th line this started some conflict which made Brad tell Tommy that he had an affair with Sheila and this made the conflict turn into a fist fight. Tommy left and out of frustration he went to Sheila's house and asked her if she really had and affair with Brad because she didn't answer he raped her after the cops found out he was sent to Youth Detention Care which led to end for his dreams of flying air crafts.

Shane sneaks into Andy's room and tells him why he backed him up in the fight because he was wondering. A lot of Andy's questions were answered.

Shane dies because he had no fight left in him.

Tommy is in Youth detention Facility for two years his dreams are dead.

Brad kept his dream alive by continuously working hard on becoming a pro hockey player.

Andy gets his part and his agents are crazy over him.
Andy is a young boy who wants to become an Actor when he grows up, he is always looking for ways to get a role in a movie or a play or anything that will get him on the big screen.

Tommy is a young boy who is a Cadet and his future plans are to fly aircraft in the army. He is a good person in and out of school and he always has above average marks in everything.

Brad is a young boy who is very violent and aggressive because he plays hockey. Hockey is Brad's and his dads life. Brad is friends with Tommy.

Shane is the leader of the TMR gang which is a gang known for creating trouble inside and outside of school. Shane is a very mysterious character because there isn't much information given about him.
Man vs Man
Man vs Self
Man vs Nature
The Importance of friendship
My personal opinion of this book is that it is a fairly different read than other books and I suggest it to the readers that like to take on a challenge and enjoy less childish book because this book has characters that are in high school and this novel shares their experiences.

Another unique thing about this book is that it doesn't have any chapters. After every couple of pages it will move on to one of the four main characters and then you will read their point of view. which gave the novel an interesting twist.

I myself do not enjoy reading that often, but this book had really intrigued me and had me excited the whole way through.

I suggest this book to all of you know that we are in high school and we need to face reality and when I was reading this I felt like I was actually in the school in this novel as I was reading it.

The End

Thank you.
