All I got was a cautious nod. Can I explain?. There was no emotion in her voice. I told her about Jason getting sick. And I told her that I’d come right back to see her but the. storm had closed the game down. She listened to everything, her expression barely changing. When I finished, I felt like I was waiting for a jury to read a verdict. In my heart I hoped she’d tell me she understood. In my gut I was afraid she’d tell me to go away. Guilty on all charges. That must have been awful, she said. I hope your friend is okay.

I first encountered this novel in the classroom of my high-school English teacher, among his 'favorites' shelf (he keeps five or six copies of each of his favorites there so that his students can read them). I wasn't sure I would like it, but on his recommendation I grabbed a copy and found myself so absorbed that I finished the novel in just over one day.

David Lubar's writing is neither intensely metaphorical nor stylistically unique, but his narration is engaging and relate-able. The book has moments that will make readers laugh out loud, but follows several interesting sub-plots as well. All in all, "Dunk" is a very well done Young Adult novel.

I enjoyed Lubar's book Hidden Talents quite a bit, but when I picked up Dunk I was skeptical. Chad is mesmerised by the bozo in the dunk tank and longs to be a bozo too. This scenario did not seem able to carry a novel-length story. However, Lubar uses the bozo as a metaphor for finding out your own strengths, weakenesses, and personality in general.

Chad's experiences are heart-wrenching and Lubar's writing allows the reader to feel the anguish along with him. It's not until he is able to listen to Malcolm and see him as a human being that Chad can step up and be the man he's supposed to be--for his mother, his sick friend, and the girl he loves.

A good read with strong characters and a great message that isn't preachy. Another hit from Lubar.

Love it. Would definitely order from again.

I read this book in middle school and from then on I considered it one of my favorite books. Now I am a college Freshman and I can't really remember much about the book itself, so I decided to buy it and read it again to capture why I loved it so much.

Nice book for teenagers, good story.

I first learned of this book when a former student of mine e-mailed me one day last year and asked if I had read DUNK. I hadn't, but he suggested it to me because, in reading it, he had come to the realization that the character of Malcolm reminded him very much of me.

Malcolm, the Bozo in the dunk tank on the Boardwalk at the Jersey shore, was a comedy-loving drama teacher who made some money in the summer with an odd, but challenging acting job. I am a comedy-loving drama (and English) teacher who sometimes makes money from the occasional acting job, as well. I even share a physical resemblance to Malcolm.

Though Malcolm is not the protagonist of David Lubar's book, he figures prominently in DUNK as the motivator for Chad, a 15-year-old who needs to find his focus in life.

A love-letter to the art and value of comedy, DUNK clearly understands its marks (to use an appropriate word from the book) -- young adults who can relate to the problems, desires and angst of a 15-year-old like Chad.

Having just finished the book, I can report that it serves its customers well, but, like the dunk tank at the core of this story, it's not for everyone. I really wished that Lubar had not chosen to tell this not from the first-person viewpoint of Chad, but rather from the omniscient third-person. I think that Chad's lack of ability to properly articulate his feelings, surroundings and conditions prevents DUNK from being a beautiful piece that reveals gorgeous, poetic details of the Americana of boardwalk life, as well as being able to use more elegant language to bring every aspect of this book to life.

I also found that by putting Comedy (with a capital "C") on a pedestal, Lubar's humor would have been funnier. I found his appreciation of the art form admirable, but his actual use of it limited.

As is the nature of YA books, plotting sometimes becomes predictable and stereotypical, and DUNK does not escape this problem. The seriously ill friend, the local teenage "wiseguy," the over-burdened mom, and the red-headed object of Chad's eye end up exactly where you expect them to -- and you can probably guess what that is, even with my simple descriptions. There are no surprises here; everything is pretty much what you'd expect.

With so many excellent YA novels out there, as palatable as DUNK is, it doesn't quite win the big prize.

This is a wonderful novel, and I won't repeat the good comments of the other reviewers . I agree with them, but I am writing this review to praise the audio book version of this novel. It's not just the ordinary audio book where one reader plays all the parts.No matter how talented those audio book readers are, they just can't make it seem like a true audio play. This audio book has different actors and actresses, one for each part They're all talented. The performance is outstanding
The greatest book I've ever read is Dunk! This book kept me guessing and reading. This book takes place where the fun begins and ends (right along the boardwalk). I'm so glad that my friend Zach recommended it to me!
Dunk is about a boy named Chad. He only has his mom because his dad left them for another girl. When Chad finally finds the perfect girl, she has to go back to Montana.The last words he heard from her were "I'll be back next year, Chad".
The next year finally came. Chad checked the game that Gwen ran when they met. Even though Chad wanted Gwen the most he also wanted a job for the summer. But,his mom didn't him to work because when his dad said he was working he really wasn't. On the day that Gwen arrived, his best friend Jason started acting weird so the cops took Jason to the hospital and Chad to the jail cell. They accused them of using illegal drugs. The person that saved him was his upstair neighbor. Even though Chad hated Malcolm, he was thankful that he was there.
The next time that he saw Gwen she was with his old friend Anthony. After that, he found out that his best friend Jason had a disease that affected his immune system. The next day he tried out for the bozo job.
Will Chad get Gwen back,get his job,and make friends with Malcolm? Also, will Jason get better? To find out, read the greatest book ever, Dunk!
