C Mack is the story of two twins learning how they can like the same thing.

Read to find out the conclusion of this book! View all 10 comments. Feb 02, Melia rated it it was amazing. The theme in this book is you can change who you are you aren’t glued into one identity forever. Jun 02, Richie Partington rated it it was amazing. Mack, Bloomsbury, Februaryp.

We were undefeated in sixth grade if you didn’t count our five losses, Richie’s Picks: We were undefeated in sixth grade if you didn’t count our five losses, which I didn’t because the refs had been out to get usand we’d been shooting hoops at Sunset Park all summer to stay on top of our game. After making a fool of himself trying to educate the new coach as to why they shouldn’t have to try out, the coach spots Owen’s fraternal-twin brother Russell walking down the hallway Russell’s the tallest kid in their grade.

Russell is the “mathlete” in the book’s title, the leader of the school’s Masters of the Mind team, and Owen figures his klutzy brother should stick to geekdom and leave the basketball playing to him.

Russell at first seems agreeable to the notion that he’ll go through the motions, fail to make the team, and return to more academic pursuits. But then their father takes him out to equip him for playing: And that’s when I knew that the tryout situation was officially out of control. But as I took a deep breath, getting ready to tell Dad how I felt, I saw it in the salesman’s hand.

The pattern looked like a drafting blueprint, and the silver swoosh stitched on the side practically screamed ‘speed. Meanwhile, Russell’s friends on the Masters of the Mind team are appalled that their leader has gone to the dark side. Amidst all of this turmoil, Russell is both expanding his horizons as well as coming to the realization that all of his academic prowess has never yielded the tiniest fraction of respect and acclaim that comes from a good pair of shoes and making a few jump shots.

Fun and filled with some pretty interesting issues, there are a load of year olds for whom this series will be a slam dunk. Jan 02, Giteeka rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have read this book before and it never gets old! The book is about twinsOwen, and Russell.


Owen plays basketball and Russell studies. They are polar opposites, but when Coach makes Russell try out for the basketball team, everything changes. I love how the book is in both Owen’s and Russell’s point of view. Apr 03, Carson Scribner rated it it was amazing Shelves: Athlete vs Mathlete by W.

C Mack is about twin brothers that are nothing alike. One twin, Owen loves to play and watch basketball while the other twin, Russell loves to rack up math awards.

Athlete vs. Mathlete

This book also shows suspense in the twins lives. Also there is some conflicts between Owen and Russell throughout the book. This book made an impression on me because I am also a twin and love sports. I also think a person who loves to play or watch sports would like this book.

Jan 21, Marielle Povinelli rated it it was amazing. Athlete vs Mathlete is about two twin brothers and Owen is an athlete and Russell is the brains. Since Russell is tall the coach of the basketball team wants him to try out, when he tries out he makes the team. At the first game Russell makes amazing shot and teals Owens fame.

Owen gets jealous and doesn’t want to play anymore. But, Russell feels bad so try to quit the team, but Owen stops him and the next game they play together. Well for me I would give it an 8. I would say this because I like Athlete vs Mathlete is about two twin brothers and Owen is an athlete and Russell is the brains. I would say this because I like basketball and that makes me more interested in the book. Also, I like math and school so, this book is me but n a book.

I liked this book more than I thought. So, on a scale 1 to 10 I would give it an 8. I think other people should read it because it is a story about two brothers getting in a big fight and them getting back together. This can be a real life situation. I think a lot of people can relate to this book.
