Default plot summary

hey guys i'm in a kind of a problem.

for my english class i have to read this dumb book called "Shades of Simon Gray" by Joyce McDonald.

problem is that i have to finish reading it by the 6th and i hate reading! with a passion. i've looked on SparkNotes and CliffNotes for the books plot and i have found nothing.

i googled it and i find nothing. anyone ever read this book and know what it is about? it would be a big help for me, if not ill just take the one paragraph i found about the plot and stretch that out into an essay. =p

ya i guess that is a good idea. just make sure you get a vague ida on what the book is about so that your summary is somewhat related to the actual plot lol

I never agreed to forcing people to read book X within a short time period. You don't have time to really enjoy it. I'm not an avid reader myself, and I believe it's for this reason. I never had good experiences with literature, although I suppose I am well read as a result of my AP English classes, but I don't have much to show for it now.

Most of the time when I read, I'll sit down and read a technical article or repair guide or something like that, I actually enjoy that a lot. I have all but abandoned fictional novels.

I haven't read a book since Angels and Demons and the Davince Code came out, but those were pretty good.
