R-Right before Orchid was about to be forced to marry her addict cousin, Big Sister Fann gave her some advice. She told Orchid about the decree of the Emperor looking for wives.
I- I think this book is a little hard to understand. That is only because the culture in this book is completely different than what we are used to hear.
D-Death can be ordered at any minute. The rules of the forbidden city are extremely strict and death is often a penalty.
A-At first, Orchid is a nobody in the city. Then, she slowly works her way to the top.

I- Insulted by what everyone thinks about him, Will decides that he wants to be more independent. That means that he doesn't have anyone guiding him around the school. He believes he can do it himself.
D- During his first day of school, Will accidentally makes a girl cry. Afterwards, the girl who started crying found out he was blind and apologized to him.

I am reading Where the Crawdads sing by Delia Owens. I am on page 337 of 368. I have not started my August/September book assignment.
F From the very beginning I knew this was going to be a really good book. I even have a hard time putting it down.
R Recently my mother read the same book and insisted that I get it from the library. So I did and I am very glad I did.
I In the story, currently the main character Kya is on trial for murder, which she did not commit. This really adds to the story line and keeps me intrigued.
D Dealing with this, Kya is very scared. Since she has not been around people much, she has panic attacks in the middle of court.
A As the story progresses, I am really wondering who the real murderer is. I am also curious of when it will be revealed.
Y Yearning for her freedom, Kya needs to stay strong in court so that someday she will be free again. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in reading it.

Today I read some of my world lit book BalZac by: Dai Sijie it is 184 pages and I am currently on 87. The book came as a shook to me as i didn't think a school book would be so dirty. F For example there is a part in the book where it talks about the little Chinese seamstress and Loe under a tree doing inappropriate things. I personally think that the author did not need to go into so much detail. R rightfully i think that the two main character ion the book should be able to read what ever kind of books they so choose to read. It is not right to tell someone they can and cant read. I I personally think this book with out the naughty parts is a good book just kinda sloe in the beginning. D Doing what they have to to get another book from Four Eyes, they carry rice to the next village as everyone is suppose to carry a certain amount but four eyes had just broke his glasses and could not see so in exchange they got a small book named "BalZac".A After four eyes got his glasses back he has not given the boys a book and does not say anything about it. He keeps them in a locked up case under his bed. The Chinese band books that weren't from their country they didn't want people know what was going on in other places. Y You should read this book if you like learning stuff about other countries. it is a very quick read and it is not that diffcult other then a couple Chinese words.

I am also still reading a champions comeback for my sports book I am on page 79 in that book.

I am still reading Breakdown by Bob Holloran. I stopped on page 187 of 268. I am currently reading my August/September sports book.
-For years, Chelsea Red Devils high school football program had lacked coaching and discipline. Many of the players were committed to a gang and caused trouble on the streets, therefore they couldn't play in games.
-Red Devils have a lot of talent, but many of the players don't focus in or don't care enough to stay out of trouble. Some of the players want to live a normal life, but can't because some of their family members are in gangs; they think it's the way of life.
-Instantly, the players feel safe once they walk out to the practice/game field. They would rather straighten their lives out and play football because they knew they would be safer with their coach.
-Danger lurks in the streets of Chelsea, Massachusetts. Many of the players hustle home after practice because shootings occur frequently there. Even the school isn't the safest place, fights still ring out in the halls and outside of school.
-Atkins, the head coach, is also a police officer. He knows how to get the kids to respect him and listen to him. Atkins acts as a father figure to these players who lost their dads due to them leaving to find a different life, or gang violence.
-Young players don't get opportunities like the older players, so they look up to them. For the most part, the seniors stay away from the gang life and work on school so they are suitable role models. Atkins realizes this and is proud of himself and the team because he can see them changing into mature, responsible men.

F For most of his life, William lived near a small village in Malawi, Africa. His family worked very hard to raise maize to feed themselves.
R Rarely does someone so young succeed as William does. When he was just 13 years old, he used an old science textbook to figure out how to build a windmill to use water to generate the first electricity for his village.
