Pay It Forward"-a book poised to become a phenomenon-is a well-designed confection that author Catherine Ryan Hyde has executed with abundant skill. If you ever had a yen for the utopian, you will have a sweet time with this heartfelt fable. San Jose Mercury-News. An extraordinary tale that, like its young protagonist, just might change the world. Big things are expected of this book (there was already a movie deal in the works before its release), and with good reason

Well, for all the hype about this novel, I liked Hyde's other novels, "Don't Let Me Go" and "Where We Belong", far better as stories as well as writing and entertainment value.

Well, for all the hype about this novel, I liked Hyde's other novels, "Don't Let Me Go" and "Where We Belong", far better as stories as well as writing and entertainment value. I have to say that the story was good, it was interesting, but the novel had some things going against it in my view.

Pay It Forward is a novel by Catherine Ryan Hyde, released in 1999 which was adapted into the motion picture Pay It Forward which released theatrically and to DVD in 2000–2001. A second young adult version of the novel was released in 2014. When twelve-year-old Trevor McKinney begins seventh grade in Atascadero, California, his social studies teacher gives the class an assignment to devise and put into action a plan that will change the world for the better.

Catherine Ryan Hyde's book of 1999 is a very well written, and plotted story of how a young boy endeavours to change the world. It is encouraging to read that on Pay It Forward Day 2018 there were 86 countries who took part. Random Acts of Kindness toward 3 or more people by individuals. A quick calculation if one person reached out to three people and those three people reached out to three more people each the following day, and so on about 19. million people would be helped within 2 weeks

Now and then a piece fell, only to be retrieved by Miss Liza, who spent most of her time at Arlene’s now, with the rest of the family.

Now and then a piece fell, only to be retrieved by Miss Liza, who spent most of her time at Arlene’s now, with the rest of the family pposed to like popcorn. She seemed unconcerned. They watched Buffalo play the Raiders, a good game for Trevor to use as a teaching tool, since he wasn’t overly concerned about the outcome. He cheered for Buffalo, but not so much that he couldn’t breathe

Trevor’s idea is deceptively simple: do a good deed for three people, and in exchange, ask each of them to pay it forward to three more. So nine people get helped. Then those people have to do twenty-seve. .

Following the success of her book, Pay It Forward, author Catherine Ryan Hyde established the Pay It Forward Foundation

Following the success of her book, Pay It Forward, author Catherine Ryan Hyde established the Pay It Forward Foundation. Over the seventeen year history the Foundation has inspired countless acts of kindness and served to inspire people all over the world to make the philosophy part of their lives.

The internationally acclaimed sensation that started a movement of giving.When his teacher sets a challenge to his class to come up with a plan to change the world for the better, twelve-year-old Trevor McKinney’s idea is simple: Do a good deed for three people and ask each of them to “pay it forward” to three others who need help. At first, the plan goes awry, and Trevor’s project seems valuable only as a lesson on the dark side of human nature. But then something amazing starts to happen: a vast movement of kindness and goodwill spreading beyond Trevor’s small California town and across the world. Soon a journalist with a story of his own tracks down the source of the epidemic, and makes Trevor a celebrity. Yet Trevor has problems closer to home: he wants his pretty, hardworking mother to see the softer side of his beloved teacher, Reuben St. Clair, a scarred Vietnam veteran who seems to come alive only when he’s in front of his class. In the end, Pay It Forward is the story of seemingly ordinary people made extraordinary by the faith of a child—a story so powerful it has inspired people around the world to follow its example in their own lives. Anyone who has ever despaired of one person’s ability to effect change will rejoice in this novel’s triumphant message of hope.

This is one of my favorite stories and I am happy that it came out in a Young Readers Edition. I teach 5th Grade and the original movie is just on the edge of being able to watch it with my students. This book will definitely be on my "Read Aloud" list this year. It is so heartwarming, with a message that will stay with you for a long time. Trevor is such a likable, no nonsense kid, with a big heart. His plan seems so simple, yet, as adults, our learned skepticism fills us with doubt and our faith in others is minimal. This story becomes our inspiration to our Genius Hour projects, inspiring kids to make a difference in their world today. No idea is too small or too simple, it just takes a strong heart and mind to make it happen. I would recommend this book in any classroom. Our students are our future and this book is a powerful influence for students to make it happen.

I watched this movie when it came out many years ago, and loved it. The book is similar of course, but even more powerful, even more filled with appreciation of diversity and human understanding, and different enough that I couldn't be sure what to expect. Shifting narratives threw me now and then, trying to remember which characters were which, but they precisely fulfilled the author's intent of broadening the story through multiple perspectives. I've loved every book I've read by this author (which were included with Kindle Unlimited), so finally broke down and paid for this one. So glad I did! I've "been intending to begin" doing some charitable acts (not just donations), but this book, which touched me deeply over and over, has inspired me to get off my a$$. I will not only begin doing that ASAP, but will also start my own "pay it forward" chain! Catherine Ryan Hyde, thank you for bringing this light into the world!!! Readers, don't forget to read her introduction to this edition!!!

What a beautiful concept.
I have been trying to live my life around this idea for a while, I wish I had tried a little harder at times. It is such a simple concept, yet so hard
To accomplish as much as we would like to, all the time.
Trevor makes it look so easy. Just the fact that he believes he has failed is so human and so heart breaking.
I loved Reuben as a person, a teacher and Vietnam veteran. I really believe that most soldiers adhere to this concept just by the nature
Of their jobs. And the fact that he is also a teacher who challenges his students to come up with this particular project is so amazingly
Nurturing. We should all have someone in ours lives like Reuben and Trevor. This world would Be so much better for it. Let's all try it.
We have nothing to loose, and so much to gain.
Thanks, Ms Ryan Hyde for another unforgettable read.

I can't write much right now. I'm crying and I don't want to stop right now. It just seems right.

THAT is how amazing this book is. I usually write about how talented THIS author is, how she makes me actually become the characters. I speak of her uncanny ability to make me feel their feelings, see life through their eyes.

Today, I simply say that I felt it in my heart. For that, I'm grateful to her. She made me believe.

Catherine Ryan Hyde, thank you. I will.

Inspiring idea, but vey uninspiring characters and writing. I LOVED he idea and in the hands of another writer, I'm sure I would have loved the book, but I hated it. It says it's for ages 8 & up, but it is WAY to mature for an 8 year old with cussing and constant references to sexual relationships, both straight and gay.
The author seems to have a liberal agenda. (Yes, I admit to being conservative.). If the book had been better written and the liberal views had served an actual purpose beyond indoctinization, I would happily have read the book. But as it is, I can see no purpose.
As mentioned by another reviewer, Trevor is the only likable character and so little of the book is told from his point of view that you really don't get to know him well at all.

The author switches narrators constantly. New characters suddenly show up and you're expected to accept them like best friends whose past you know and understand. And I found myself constantly asking myself 'Do people really think like this?!' It all felt very disjointed and unnatural.
Again, I LOVE the premise of this book. But in reality, the book was very disappointing.

I watched the movie years ago and it was great! I just read the book for the first time and it was moving emotionally, and spiritually. Wow, the characters were so so believable. My life developed cynicism wants to nay say the idea that anyone: especially not a child of 12, could provoke such profound change in a broken selfish, and brutal world, yet history shows that a single individual can pass forward goodness. It's 2017, terror makes victims of the vulnerable and the innocents, greed stalks the world's economies, Godlessness is a protected status, yet this book reminds us to stop, reassess and in the suffocating darkness around each of us to lift up three candles and Pay It Forward. I will! Thank you Catherine Ryan Hyde!

"Pay it Forward"

Well, for all the hype about this novel, I liked Hyde's other novels, "Don't Let Me Go" and "Where We Belong", far better as stories as well as writing and entertainment value. But "Pay It Forward" was a good story written by one of my favorite writers.

I have to say that the story was good, it was interesting, but the novel had some things going against it in my view. CRH wrote the story in an odd English grammar method with the narrators of various sections being various characters at various times and in various grammatical tenses. A testament to the skill of the author is that I didn't throw it into the electronic landfill long before I finished it.

Like I've said, the story was good, the writing was good, ....just wish she'd written this one as well as she's written the others I've read. All that being said, I'm guessing that you'll find the story entertaining and a fun read. With Catherine Ryan Hyde, you almost can't go wrong.
