The Captain is a book i decided to read outside of school. Derek Jeter was my favorite baseball player and i saw this book and wanted to learn more about him. This book was a biography, i had never read a biography so it was a new experience. It was a great book and i learned a lot about him. This made me realize the power of books and reading. There is so much hidden knowledge and learning in books once you start to read them which is what i like.
