I finished the book Punished. It is about a girl who gets abused by her mother. She has an older sibling name Nigel, but he didn't ever get abused the way she did. She soon found out that her "mother" isn't actually her mother. She was adopted and so was Nigel. The reason why her mom was so mean to her is because she had to give up her modeling career to take care of two kids that weren't even hers. Late ron in the years things don't get any better. In fact they get worse, one of the "punishments" that she gets is her mom puts her hand on the stove and burnt her hand to a third degree burn. Later on in her lifetime she grows up and has a wonderful family. Her mom is put in a nursing home and she visited her every week even though what she did to her as a child.

I'm almost done with Between The Lines. I am on page 254 of 352 pages.

In my book, love is what it is all about. The main girl is in love with a fairytale prince and he is in love with her. They have to work together to be with each other. Delilah needs to find a way to get Oliver out of the book, where he has been trapped his whole life. The book inside this book is a fairy tale. Oliver plays a handsome prince, but he is not very brave all the time. Oliver ends up saving the princess who was trapped by the same man who killed his father. In the book, when its not open, he has his own life. He plays chess with his sidekick, and helps in the castle kitchen. He has been trying to get one go the readers attention, but cannot. Until Delilah. Delilah and Oliver fall in love. They talk every night. Every time Delilah opens the book, she goes to page 43 so they can be alone. This isn't enough though. They want to be able to see each other eye to eye. Person to person. They must take on all the challenges that face them. However they face them together.

I have finished the book Sarah's Key. I am now reading I Have Lived a Thousand Years by Livia Bitton-Jackson. I am on page 139 and there are 223 pages. Love plays an important role in my book. The love between a daughter and mother is very important. They both have been shipped from one concentration camp to another and they have been relying on each other to survive. The whole time they have been in Auschwitz they have faced several challenges. Their love for each other has allowed them to help and push each other past their limits. They both know that without each other they would have given up a long time ago. Their love for each other has grown greatly since they both have gone through these horrendous things together. They have also seen each other in a new light and have a new found respect for one another. The mother has now been chosen to be sent to a different camp. Elli, the daughter, knows that without her her mother will not survive. Now she is trying to reason with the officer into letting her go with her mother. It will be interesting to read if their love for each other is strong enough to overcome Auschwitz and the Holocaust as a whole.

I am reading Frayed by Kara Terzis, there are 297 pages and I stopped on page 287 today. I'm going to do option C. If Ava were to send a letter she'd send it to Kelsey. She'd say how she truly thinks of her and how much she is inspired by her. She shows a perfect reputation on how to be a perfect person. When really she isn't so perfect. Ava would say how she hates how she back-stabbed her and acted like she did nothing wrong. She said how she is an awful person inside for not telling her how she really is. She didn't tell Ava how imperfect she was and how she could fix it. She blamed her for everything and she hates her for it. She didn't like how she treated her foster mom like a real mom and didn't tell her about her real parents are.

I am reading My Last Kiss and I am on page 286 out of 358 pages.
One of the most important themes of my book is love. Cassidy, the main character of the book, loves Ethan. After a party with too much drinking and too much drama, Cassidy is mysteriously found dead, and people are pinning her death as a suicide. Cassidy has no idea how she died, and her ghost is searching for all the missing clues as to what happened that night. Since she is a ghost, no one can see her. Except her boyfriend, Ethan. This is really interesting and leads to the question of why it is that he can see her. Is it because of their love for each other? Or maybe it's because he's connected to her death. Together, they are the only ones who can find out whether her death was an accident, or murder.

The book I am currently reading is "Outside Shot" by Keith O'Brien. There are 270 and I stopped on page 158 today.
(B.) In my book, February is a very important month. February is the time of the season just before playoffs. This is the time when every game matters, you must win at least 75% of your games or else you have a chance of not making the playoffs. My book is based around a Kentucky basketball team that has a very hug legacy of winning. They entered the moth of February with a record of 15-8 and only 12 more games left, 8 of these games are in this month. During this month, the team travels a bunch and its n the winter. Very dangerous time. This month is very important to the team in my book.

I'm reading love letters to the dead. I'm on page 230, there is 323 pages total.
A. In the book I'm reading it is about the main girls love for her dead sister, her parents, and her friends. She had a boyfriend but he broke up with her because she didn't share enough. I see his point but it was a little selfish of him. He didn't fess up about why he broke up with her until later, he did it in a note, and it was shorty after he said " I love you." I learned today that the sister she looked up to, committed suicide in front of her. I was confused on why she was struggling so much with her sisters death and I got my answer. Her sister seemed happy but she jumped into a stream at their secret spot. The main girl also has these two girl friends that are in love and kiss but aren't public. It is killing one of the girls because the other one flirts and kissing all these guys and won't admit her feelings. The thing a stranger guessed them being in love. Love just seems complicated in this book.

Start with a sentence that names your current book, # of pages, and where you stopped today. Also tell me if you just finished another book.
I'm reading Punished by Vanessa Steel. I finished the novel of 326 pages today and plan to read Don't Get Caught next class.

Topic A
Vanessa is abused mentally, physically, and emotionally throughout her childhood. She continues to bear through the pain that is inflicted on her solely because of her desire to be loved. Even if Vanessa doesn't receive the love she yearns for so badly from her mother, she does receive it from Nan Casey, her brother, and even neighbors. Vanessa doesn't understand why nothing is done to stop the abuse that is happening to her. She doesn't let her past inflict negativity on her future, however. Vanessa finds out that she's pregnant and vows to love her little girl with all of her heart. As Vanessa enters adulthood and now is on her 2nd husband with six kids, three of which are hers, her mother's heath is deteriorating. She visits her in the hospital and never receives an apology from her mother but rather and understanding for what she did and why. It's not completely confirmed but Vanessa can only make the assumption that, like her, her mother wasn't loved and therefor didn't know how to love.

I am reading Lone Survivor. I stopped on page 346 of 392. Love plays a large role in Marcus' life throughout the course of this book. Love is actually one of the driving forces that keeps him alive thorough everything that he went through. Marcus developed a deep love for hard work and the military as a young boy. He was always fascinated with the way they operated and always wanted to become a Navy SEAL. He obviously has tremendous love for our country also because he is willing to fight and give his life to defend us. Love is also what got his parents and other family members through this. The four SEALs were reported as MIA and many assumed them dead. Within a couple days, over 300 people, family and friends, had gathered at Marcus' parents house. They gathered there to show their love and support. They stayed there, helping the family and praying, for over a week. Love was one of the main forces that kept Marcus alive and kept everyone else believing in him.

I'm currently reading Invasive, there are 320 pages and I stopped on page 193 today.

A. Love isn't a huge theme in Invasive, but the main character Hannah slept with one of the antagonists Einar. This doesn't seem to be a very big deal, but if it got out to the public it could make it difficult to arrest Einar. This also made all of the scientists on edge with Hannah. Hannah also has a rough relationship with her parents. She loves them, but her childhood was very difficult for her because her parents are paranoid. Throughout the novel, there are constant flashbacks of Hannah's childhood. However, there are times where Hannah's parents help her. Some of their skills they taught her are used when Hannah is in life or death situations.

The book I am currently reading is Eve & Adam by Michael Grant and Katherine Applegate. There are 291 pages, and I am on page 260. Meaning, I will finish this book next class period.

Love is a very, very important factor in this book. First, Eve believes, on and off, that her mother may actually love her, and wants to help her. Then there are hints that Solo, one of the main characters, is madly in-love with Eve. Also, Eve's friend, Aislin's boyfriend, who she loves dearly, and will do anything for, keeps getting into trouble. Which ends up hurting Aislin, and sometimes Eve, multiple times. Finally, the main love shown, and foreshadowed in the book, between Eve and Adam. Eve created Adam, without knowing he would become real, so she made him to the way that he was perfect to her. When Adam finally comes to life, his first thought are how much he loves his creator, Eve. And how much he wants to find her, and be with her.
