I'm now on page 70 of the book Alive and there are 345 pages.
F- Finally the 5 characters have escaped the main room. Fighting has become a main event in the book, nobody can get along.
R- Remembering is very hard for all of them . They all believe that they're 12 still when they're actually a lot older.
I- Isolation is a frightening thing when it comes to being trapped in a room for a day. All of the characters have woke up and are abandoned.
D- Dead bodies fill the room around the characters. They're not sure if they were left in there to die with them.
A- All five of the characters have a weird symbol on their bodies. However, they all remember these symbols, yet they have no recognition as to what they mean.
Y- Yelling for help is not an option, their screams cannot be heard. They don't even know how they were put in this dungeon so maybe they want to remain unheard.

I finished the book, The darkest path. There were 320 pages.
F Finally the main character and his brother make it back to their hometown. When they get there their parents left them a note that they had fled to Canada a year before.
R Reading this book's ending made me frustrated because I had an idea in my head of how I wanted their lives to end up. I wanted them to meet back up with the people they escaped the camp with and then they could have looked for his parents together.
I I especially wanted him to meet up with the girl whose parents were both killed because she went to live by herself for all we know. Also I wish he would have tried to persuade his brother to not go back to the path.
D During this book there were many times where I felt he could have tried better to save the people around him. He made a bunch of impulse decisions that were the best for him or the people around him.
A A thing I liked about the ending was that they did make it back home finally. I wish there was another book where they try to find their parents.
Y Young Cal and James would have been very willing to search endlessly for their parents. I wish James wouldn't have bought into the Path ideals.

I am reading UnWholly by Neal Shusterman. I started on page 220 and ended on 271 today.
F Fighting the parents of a storked child so he could protect that child is what Starky planned on doing. The only thing that stopped him was the stupidity of a kid within his group, even if he was trying to protect him.
R Risa does not cooperate with the people asking her questions. She does not cooperate which could cause her to get in huge trouble but she does it anyways. She doesn't want to give in so easily. She wants to fight as much as she can.
I Information is not understood. Conner doesn't know exactly why Risa did it. He does not know why she decided to get an unwinds spine and legs and can't find out.
D Doing what she can. Risa tried not to sign the paper that was to agree for her to get new legs, but the paper mocked her and made her sign it.
A All the things going through Conner's mind is making him upset. Risa is on television somewhat supporting unwinding, even though she had told Conner she never would.
Y Yelling will not help Starky, although it has made his presence known. He want's the world to know he's there for stoked children that are to be unwound.

I am reading the book Then, it is 196 pages long and I stopped on page 54.
T The book starts out with Zelda and Felix running from a Nazi train that they had jumped from. Then as they are running through a forest they see a mass grave full of children.
H Hardly anyone wanted to help these kids. For example a farmer wanted to take the kids and turn them in for a reward.
E Eventually they met a woman that takes them in. She dyes their hair blonde to make them not look Jewish.
N No one should have to see a mass grave.

Today I finished No One Needs To Know, and I started reading Once by Morris Gleitzman. The book has 163 pages and I ended on page 12.
F Fear is something that Jankiel knows well about. He is afraid of the people that showed up at the orphanage in a car.
R Ready, this shows how Felix is ready for his parents to show up and everything to go back together and they will read stories together again.
I Imagination, Felix has a very wide imagination he is really good at making up stories. Like he did for Dodie, saying he wanted to be a doctor when he grows up so he had to use the bath first.
D Dodie's parents died because of illness, and Felix feels bad for him.
A Assumptions, Felix thinks that his parents are alive because they told him they would never forget him. And he got a hole carrot in his soup and he thought that was a sign that his parents are coming to get him.
Y Yelling the nuns are mean and they yell a lot even if they have a kind heart they still are very strict and they yell.

I am reading "Brooklyn Nine" by Alan Gratz and I stopped on page 145 today.
F is for Frankie who runs numbers and gets money from her already poor neighbors. She "scams" her neighbors out of a penny to 25 cents everyday for a 600 to one odds to win the numbers.
R is for Robins who are the loved team of Brooklyn. They are not very good but fans keep going because, as Frankie said, "They are Brooklyn's bums."
I is for ironic how the book is playing out. In "inning" four, Frankie Snider seems like the son of "inning" threes main character, Walter Schnieder, changed to Snider, because it sounded Jewish. The author has not said but every chapter seems to link the main characters as kids of the character in the inning before.
D is for Frankies dad who is a cop. As a cop, he turns his head away from the illegal speakeasies and blind pigs. Blind pigs and speakeasies are illegal bars that sell illegal alcohol during Prohibition. As a cop, he should bust them but instead he frequently goes in there himself for a drink after he gets off duty.
A is for Arnold who met his favorite baseball player ever Mike "King" Kelly. He saw him performing at a theatre and tried to get an autograph but King Kelly fell over drunk right in front of him. Kelly's valet ditched Kelly so Arnold took over the job before Kelly ditched and found a ride out of Brooklyn.
Y is for why is the author writing the book this way. I have never read a book like this and honestly, it is quite fascinating.
