Frogs and mice…no, that’s not a good idea. Legos and snow. Ultra not. Let’s see, a book about movies, plus an idea or two, plus a kid who wants to make it to the big screen.
Frogs and mice…no, that’s not a good idea. Legos and snow. Ultra not. Let’s see, a book about movies, plus an idea or two, plus a kid who wants to make it to the big screen. Now that’s a good idea!
The book, I Represent Sean Rosen, by Jeff Baron, is about a kid named Sean Rosen. He has an idea for a movie, and he wants to make it happen. It isn’t just that he can send in his idea and it becomes a movie, though. He has to contact a company, find an agent or a manager, pitch his idea (over Skype), hide from his friends, and try to survive school at the same time.
The hardest part for Sean is lying to the company, because in real life, he is his own manager. When his “manager” is talking to the director one day, she says some things which trigger the worst part, but that is not for here.
My feelings about this book are kind of mixed. Like in the first part, I had to force myself to keep reading. But when I got to the middle, I started to really like it. Because I understand most readers take the first part for granted, and the start of this book isn’t very exciting, I wouldn’t have high hopes for this book. I do think that the middle and end are pretty good, but I still don’t think this book will do well. If you do think it sounds good, then go ahead! I’m not forcing you to read it!
I would rate this 2 stars out of 5 stars because I wouldn’t have read it if not for this. If you want to read it, I would then rate it to people from ages 9 to 13. Younger ones would find it confusing, and for the older kids, this isn’t a death game or loving vampires! So lets try to give some love to this book, and hope Sean Rosen comes out well in 2013!
