Max Pawlick Hold Up, by Terri Fields Book Review The book Hold Up, by Terri Fields is the story of a few teenagers that were involved in the robbery of Burger Heaven, a local fast food restaurant, and how they were affected in the long term by that night. The nine different narrators are switched constantly throughout the book so that each character gives their own perspective of each situation they see. This is an interesting writing style that allows the reader to get to know the characte [...]

I really wanted to like this book, but I didn't. I didn't really care what happened to any of the characters, and they all seemed really flat to me. The only one I could maybe relate to is Joe, (which is such a plain name. I come from a small island where every other boy is named Joe. Maybe that's what the author was trying to get out, he's an 'average joe') who gets compared to a blank, white wall. And he tries to get rid of that boring reputation by trying to impress a girl, by lying to her. H [...]

In the book Hold Up by Terri Fields there is no main character. But I think that works in a book because the book has nine different points of view to look from. “ I think maybe I should climb out from under the table and try and get some help.” This is important because if he would of gotten up I think the robbers would have been scared and then he will beat the crap out of them. The characters in the story have to go through a little bit of a stress full situation because the restraint tha [...]

I can't really put a star rating on this was a quick read but intersting at the same time. I would definitely say that it is something to check out, but nothing spectacularThis story is told in the viewpoints of 9 different characters, but although there are so many differnt characters it doesn't get confusing.The book is also split up into 3/4 different sections. the holdup, the planning of the holdup and during the holdupen 1yr later.Before the holdup you meet the different characters and they [...]

Everyone thinks their day is going to be normal. This is true for the teens who work at Burger Heaven, but little do they know, they are going to be part of a holdup and be held as hostages that night. The book is divided into four sections: we meet our cast of characters in the first two. Each character has a different voice (which Fields has captured spot on – just by the words Sara uses, you know she's a bit of a Valley girl, even though she never admits to be part of the popular crowd) and [...]

I thought this book was really great! As the book came to the second chapter, "Plans", the book got really interesting and fun to read. It's an ordinary Saturday night for the teens working at Burger Heaven-until guns are drawn and threats are made. Jordan's just working here part-time after school, but she's suddenly responsible for half a dozen lives when the manager has to leave. Joe has never even gotten so much as an after-school detention. So how is it that this Saturday night, he's at Bur [...]

I absolutely loved this book!! For those looking for a nice quick read, but want a little bit of excitement, this is the book for you. HoldUp is a multiple first person book that takes you on a journey through each characters thoughts and feelings. This book is more of an action book than anything. The multiple first person can be cool for some people but confusing for others. For me I was very confused at first, jumping from one mind to another, but once I got the hang of hit I really enjoyed t [...]

Originally rated G+ by Amber MarchwkaThis story documents the events leading up to a fast food restaurant holdup from the perspectives of every person involved such as the teen crew captain turned manager for the evening, to the employee who is only working there because she got caught stealing a skirt, to the old woman who wants one of the employees to go to college to the “too smart for his own good” perpetrator and the kid he convinces to help him go through with the robbery. While there [...]

This book uses multiple points of view to tell the story of an attempted robbery at a fast food restaurant.The author uses so many voices that sometimes they get all jumbled together. There is some unnecessary input from people who seem to have only one function in the plot; their duties/accounts could have been assigned to one of the many main characters.As often happens with this many characters, only a few are fleshed out, and the others come off as parodies of real people.The plot is pretty [...]

In my opinion, Holdup was generally good but very predictable. There were no unexpected twists or decisions. The characters were pretty good Nothing exciting though. The ending was okay. The characters pretty much stayed the same. The robbery didn't change anything about Sarah or Manuel. Alex realized that Hollywood wasn't for him and Jordan learned how to stop being a people pleaser, which was expected. And then Theresa learned that she can't always be the strong one. Overall, it's a good story [...]

A great quick YA read. Told from multiple perspectives, Holdup details a robbery at Burger Heaven in four parts. First you read about the Saturday shift workers, second the planning by the robbers, then the robbery and finally a follow up one year later.It’s a fascinating little book and would be great for discussion. Despite the nine different main characters, each character is complete and complex.At 163 pages it’s a perfect read for a summer day, as the action moves steadily along and you [...]

Okay! When I scanned over the numerous titles at my local library, I had no idea what good novel there was left. I prefer to be selective with my reading because I hate leaving books half finished. It physically pains me. So I saw the bright red cover and decided to pull it out of it's perch. I usually look at cover then contents when choosing what book to add to my mind palace. After much debate with myself I decided to take it. I loved it! Not your typical talebut that goes for a lot of things [...]

I was excited to read this book, because I thought the premise of it had a lot of potential. Unfortunately I found the execution to be very disappointing. The frequent point-of-view changes (between too many different characters) ended up disrupting the flow of the story, and I found the hostage situation in the restaurant to be surprisingly devoid of tension. It was a fast read, but not an especially memorable one. Chalk it up as one book that could have been a lot better than it was.

I really took this book out thinking it was a Terri Woods book (you know True to the Game???) and enjoyed the multiple perspectives of teens working in a Burger Heaven that becomes a hold-up situation one night and the impact on the nine teens one year later. i really liked that Manuel and Mrs Wilkins were able to succeed and the bad guy really does get his punishment (even though he thinks he is better than anyone)

I thought Holdup by Terri Fields overall was an interesting book. I thought that some of the characters in the book were fun to read about. However it was very expected and was lacking some of those page turner moments. I wished the book was a little bit more suspenseful, and there were less boring parts on the way to the climax. I would suggest this book to others because overall it was a good book and fun to read

This was a quick, engaging read. You don't really have enough time to get into character development, and some of the teens come off stereotypical caricatures. I do like the alternating points of view and the mostly satisfying ending. It's nice to have a high-interest book to offer to reluctant readers.

This is a very fun readif you're twelve. Which I guess is appropriate since it was written for twelve year olds. The book is told from the view point of many different characters which helps the story move really quickly. Most adult or advanced readers wouldn't want to finish this book, but by the time you decide that it is for less-advanced group, you have finished it.

This book was very suspenseful! I knew a tense situation was coming up after the end of part one, and I almost couldn't bear to read on, and yet I wanted to. The story is told from multiple viewpoints, which I liked. It didn't end the way I expected it to, but it was a satisfying ending. I recommend this for people who like suspenseful YA novels.

The book was all around great. It was definitely one of my favorite books. I was a little confused at first by the names but by the end I learned everyone's names. I like how it shows everyone's point of view from all around the story and I think it helps the reader feel what everyone is feeling. So all-around great book.

Holdup was a mundane and boring story. None of the characters are very interesting and the rising and falling actions are predictable. However the idea of the book is fun, in which a fast food resteraunt is robbed by a theif with an unwilling accomplice.

It's not that this book was bad, per say, but it was just meant for a younger audience so I didn't enjoy it as much. Also, the book was too short to really develop the plot or characters in my opinion.

i read this because it was listed for grades 10 and up. i am not sure why. it is actually a very mild book about a hostage situation. the language is okay, the violence is minimal. i would let 7th graders read this with no problems.

For a book that promises a holdup/ hostage situation there wasn't much of one, took longer getting to that moment. ANd there were too many character to really connect to any one, or truly get inside the character's head. More like an extended newspaper article.

Kind of predictable but neat premise. I got a little mixed up with the characters in the beginning because you're introduced to so many in a short period of time.
