    One thought on “Pay It Forward”

    1. If I were judging this book on the idea of it, the concept of paying it forward, I would give it 5 stars. But I'm not, I am reviewing the book. Although it is a wonderful idea it is with the backdrop of a not so good book. I read this at the recommendation of my 12 year old daughter. I started reading the "grown up version" and after 30 or so pages, I was thinking, ok I'm not really enjoying this. So I thought I'd read the kids version my daughter read instead. Here's the thing, I get that the r [...]

    2. Pay It Forward, by Catherine Ryan Hyde, is about a young boy named Trevor who decides to change the world based off of his one idea, paying it forward. The novel is written showing all of the main characters points of views, allowing everyones thoughts and ideas to be read.Paying the kindness forward; that's all Trevor wanted. Trevor, and young boy, was given an extra credit assignment to create an idea that could change the world. He went above and beyond to actually perform this act of kindnes [...]

    3. It's about Trevor who gets a new social studies teacher. His first assignment is to come up with a plan to change the world. His assignment is extra credit. Trevor tries to help someone who is being attack by a gang and get stabbed by them. This is a great book and i would recommend this book to the people who like emotion and love inspiration.

    4. I had to read this for my Language Arts class. We never had the time in the rest of the school year to actually finish it, and that's why I've marked it as DNF. Now, you may be wondering, But why don't you just pick up the book and finish it by yourself? Marking it as DNF because you had no time to finish it because it was for school is cheating! But it's not cheating, because if I were able to read the book by myself, I would've DNF'ed it by myself a long time ago.Now, meaning no offense to my [...]

    5. Read on the recommendation of one of the Grade 4 girls. I liked the concept and the story, but found myself wanting to skip to the end to find the important things out. Like - what happened to Trevor's idea? What happened to the pay it forward people he selected? And why did my student say it was sad? (I didn't find it so - but I'm not a grade 4 girl). Nevertheless, I like that she recommended it to me - because I have been the giver in our relationship.

    6. Pay It Forward was a good book, although it was too easy, it didn't have a lot of detail. I like how Catherine spread the idea that anyone can change the world. Pay It Forward was about a boy named Trevor who gets a new social studies teacher and his first assignment is for extra credit, 'Think of an idea for world change and put into action.' Trevor then thinks of paying it forward where a person does something for three people and when they ask how they can pay it back, the person says to pay [...]

    7. We loved this book! I read the young readers edition to my 10 year old daughter and 11 year old niece over the Christmas break. I ordered the book through , so I'm not sure where else this version is available.I read a few chapters every morning. The girls would wake up, pile into my bed where I'd read for about 45 minutes to an hour. We'd discuss some sections just to make sure what I read wasn't too far above their heads. The writing was beautiful, but may be little above your average 10-11 ye [...]

    8. This book. This fucking book. It's the best thing I've read these past few months, and the funny thing is that my expectations for this were low. I mean the cover is hideous in my opinion. The synopsis was alright, nothing mind-blowing and intriguing. So when I went into this book, I was sure I was going to give it 3 stars. But boy was I wrong. The characters first of all seemed SO REAL. They resonated from the pages, like something 3D. They just felt like people I would meet or know. The choice [...]

    9. Hmmmm. This was OK I read the adult version years ago when it first came out, and this is the same story, just edited and shortened for kids. Trevor's plan for his social studies extra credit assignment to change the world is simple: Do a good deed for three people and ask each of them to "pay it forward". But it turns out to be harder than it sounds, at least as first. Trevor gets an A for effort, but doesn't feel like his plan really did much good. But little does he know that behind the scene [...]

    10. Pay it Forward by, Catherine Ryan Hyde, is a moving book about a boy named Trevor and an assignment his teacher gave him.Mr. St. Clair was a new teacher, but he was different. He was black and was missing an eye. The students stared at him and asked him questions. But one day he gave out an assignment to the class to think of a way to change the world and put it in action. One boy, Trevor McKinney, decided to help 3 people and then they each "pay it forward". Trevor's project works so well with [...]

    11. This book is about a a boy named Trevor that has an idea to pay it forward. The idea of paying it forward means that you would do one life changing favor for someone and instead of them giving you something back you would ask them to pay it forward to three people. At first when Trevor started this idea he thought that it wasn't working and no one was paying it forward. He later discovered that his idea got to other states. In the end he got credit for his idea.I would 100% recommend this book t [...]

    12. This is an inspiring story about the power of one person to make a positive difference in the world. A middle school Social Studies teacher challenges his class to come up with an idea that will make a positive impact in the world. His challenges prompts a young boy to come up with the idea to Pay it Forward in the lives of three people.You learn a lot in this story about the power of kindness and how we all need each other to make it from day to day in this life. After reading this book, you wi [...]

    13. I read this book with my fourth grader and had to give it the praise it deservers. It was well modified for young readers. I just love the concept of paying things forward and try hard to live by these standards. If it is through a nice word, a shared understanding, volunteering my time or providing a helping hand when I see others struggling. Thank you for providing the medium to teach my child the concept that is so dear to my heart. Enjoy this read!

    14. Great book for young readers. I may wait until my daughter is a bit older (maybe 9 or 10) so she can understand some of the references and advanced concepts. But all in all I think this is a heart-warming and inspiring story. I'm trying to figure out the difference between the "Young Readers Edition" and the original version. Good Reads treats both books as the same book.

    15. I liked the idea behind this book--very inspiring. However, the last few chapters were disappointing. The storyline jumped around too much and there were things about the ending that really bothered me because they were unrealistic. While the idea of changing the world by finding people you can serve, or "paying it forward," is a noble idea, the ending was not true to the rest of the story.

    16. Started reading this to Nicole, but she got bored and didn't want to keep reading. I went ahead and finished it. It was ok. Not too happy with the ending because I feel like it might discourage people from doing good. But maybe it's good that it ends that way as a cautionary tale- don't try to be a superhero because you will get hurt.

    17. Read this since Emilia read it for school and she was confused. Good book and nice lesson that everyone can make a difference big or small.

    18. Recommended by our daughter who wants ideas about this book for her counseling job in an elementary school. An exceptional book (and concept of course). A good read and inspiration!

    19. I hate to say this but I'm a bit disappointed with this one. The book started with Mr. Reuben assigning the students to think of an idea on how to change the world and put it into action. The assignment is optional as it is only for extra credits or points. Trevor is one of the students who did it and his idea of changing the world is to PAY IT FORWARD.I was really impressed on the first few parts of the book when Trevor is actually doing the pay it forward movement, especially when he explained [...]

    20. Pay It Forward is an inspiring story. Trevor is given an extra credit assignment to come up with a plan to change the world. His idea is that he will do a favor for three people, and when they ask what they can do to return the favor, he tells them to pay it forward and do something big to help three different people. One reason this book is so inspiring, is because it shows how a normal kid can help spread kindness. If every person that Trevor helps also pays it forward, then kindness would spr [...]

    21. LOVED THIS BOOK! I had heard of "paying it forward" but had never known where it comes from. Well, this book, which is a revised version of the original to be more suitable for adolescents and even more different than the movie, held my interest every step of the way. I will encourage all of my 7th grade students to read this book. It makes the idea that one person's actions (even a 12-year-old's actions) can affect so many people positively and perhaps even change a community so real and attain [...]

    22. Yesterday, shortly after I finished reading this book to my kids, my son and I ran to the store. The man checking us out kept raving about my sons curly hair. He finally reached over and gave it a good rub (Carson hates this). After rubbing it for a bit he said, "That just made my day. Go pick out any candy bar you want. I'm paying for it." Carson looked at me and then got a big smile before heading to the candy. While walking out of the store Carson leaned over and whispered, "Mom, now I need t [...]

    23. This is an amazing book. I have watched the movie before, but the book was so much better. Trevor's idea is amazing, and the way he acts throughout the book is awesome. He really gives all his effort to pay it forward, and it works, without him originally knowing it. Arlene and Reueben's developing relationship through their love for Trevor was great, and was a great roller coaster throughout the novel. The concept of one boy changing the world really appeals to me, and I loved reading the novel [...]

    24. I recommend this book because it shows how the character felt about the other characters.And the Author showed details about the characters and how they felt about each others. And the Author showed the reader a little boy named Trever his dairy. and the. The Author showed the reader when the the character is reading a letter they make the word italic words. And the Author showed the reader what the character felt about the main character.

    25. This was a really good feel-good story to recommend to 4-6 graders. The Young Reader's Addition was a quick read and very satisfying. It gives a good explanation for where the term "pay it forward" came from, beginning with 5th grade social studies extra credit assignment. As each person is drawn into the idea to help someone who cannot pay you back so they need to look for someone else to help, and expand their comfort zone and look for marginalized people who are often over-looked

    26. Actual rating: 3.5For the story alone, I would give this one a solid four stars. However, I am having trouble reconciling with the ending to this Young Readers version so I had to drop it down a bit. I am all for editing to make something more appropriate/approachable for young readers but altering the ending bothers me personally. Still a beautiful story about how our actions create a ripple in the world that extends much further than we can ever know.

    27. I enjoyed this version a lot. First of all, it's just a well done story and book. But the message is fantastic, and it makes you want to get out and do something. I liked the end of this one, but found out the "real" book kills Trevor. I guess I prefer the more nebulous ending in the junior version!

    28. Phenomenal story in this Young Readers Edition. I loved and hated that the ending was so open ended not knowing what happened to Trevor, but I have my own thoughts abour what happened. This young readers edition is perfect for middle school students, to see that one person can make a huge difference in the world.

    29. I really like this book because it was interesting and moving. The way the main character had aimed to help the world. The way Jerry ended up in jail but in the end, tried to save a man from suicide and how he was moved with the act of kindness he was presented. And the candle scene was beautiful as well. It's a great book
