In the end, I think Calame also did a good job with developing the characters. Want to Read saving…. When it came to making the movie, Sean was easily persuaded and got caught up in the drama without intentionally doing so. I think there are five levels of trouble in one particular scene. Call the Shots is a raunchy, hysterical, over-the-top adventure in teenage boy-land, and I think it is a great read. I’m usually a stickler for reading a series in chronological order but these are pretty much independent of each other–no real spoilers and no prequel background needed.

You would think that these things would be uncomfortable to read through, but the author has a way with words that just makes them hilarious. I can’t wait to pass this on to readers at our library – boys and girls – and I can think of a number of adults who would enjoy reading it also.

That was the only thing that shocked me. See 1 question about Call the Shots…. Making a cheapo horror movie guaranteed to make Coop, Sean, and Matt filthy rich!


This is obvious within the first few chapters because of the topics and simply the language executed throughout the book. So the gang tries to film a horror movie to debut at a festival to try and make some cash, so that Sean can build an extension to his house.

Anyway, I thought overall that these characters’ odd behaviour was waved off too nonchalantly, and that there could have been something a bit more serious brewing. I had always thought that his personality paled in comparison to those of Matt and Coop, so I had a feeling that this would help to make his individual personality stand out.

The story of friendship is really something that I will take away from this series, and I think the author did a brilliant job of displaying such a tight-knit group of boys.

Dec 20, Ron rated it it was amazing Shelves: Throughout all this, romance comes from an unexpected direction, and Sean realizes that he does have it within himself to call the shots.


Coop is cooking up another sure-misfire scheme big surpriseand this time the comedy plays out from Sean? My mouth would be hanging open in disbelief by the time those scenes finished.

Which is much of the time. In this book, Sean Hance is the narrator of a story that centers on another outrageous scheme orchestrated by best friend, Cooper Redmond.

Call the Shots

His two buddies – Matt and Coop – play supporting roles ddon this implausible plot to film a low-budget horror movie, along with a bevvy of classmates and girlfriends, perhaps too many to really keep track of.

Also by Don Calame. Suddenly Sean is juggling not one but three interested ladies.
