The reason I rated the book the way I did is because there is a lot of suspense so you have to keep on reading it. Another reason is that he writes a poem to get to take the milli8on dollar shot. So then he takes 500-600 shots a day. Finkel wants Eddie to miss, but Eddie wans the million dollars. There is 4 ways to miss: short, long, left, and right. Will he make it?
