Inside Hudson Pickle
When Hudson’s uncle’s house catches on fire, it almost seems to trigger a chain reaction of things going wrong. He is kicked off of the hockey team, and when he’s on the court trying out for the basketball team, he seems to have an asthma attack. It ends up his uncle had a genetic respiratory illness. This makes Hudson and his mom worry that he might have the same disease, wondering if his asthma is just asthma. While Hudson is struggling with this, he also has another mystery to solve: what happened to his father? The ending concludes this identity crisis.
I don’t know if I was tired or what, but I thought this book was boring. The events seemed to go by very slowly, and I found the book not relatable. The story is very intriguing and well thought-out, but I think it is how the author executed the story. I think this was just my opinion, but yours might be different. I recommend this book to fourth- to sixth-graders and rate it three stars out of five since it was fine but didn’t make an impact.
