I just finished the Hunger Games and now I'm reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I just started the book and it has 320 pages.

A. In my old book, the earth and nature played major role. Katniss, the main character, had to sit in trees to hide. She also had to make beds out of leaves and eat anything she could find that are edible. This book use earth in almost every part. The characters must play in a area in open area of the world, they fight against each other from survival. This book was very based on nature and surviving out on your own against mother nature and other people trying to kill you.

I'm reading The Memory of Light, I'm on page 98 out of 324.
There is not a lot to do with the earth or science in my book. The only part that really has to do with science is dealing with the hospital. They talk about the types of emotions going on throughout the hospital. They talk about what medical stuff they can do to make themselves focused on what they need to in real life. The nurses need to be really good at science to fully understand their patients.

I am on page 229 of the 255 in Blood Will Tell.

Then choose one of these topics and write AT LEAST 5 sentences.

B. There is a lot of science in my book. The story focuses on a few teens who search for missing persons. They have a lot of high tech science gear that they use. Then, after the finding of a body one of their own is under suspicion, so they reconstruct the night and try to figure out the real murderer. The teens have to learn a lot about science and DNA and things like that to find out how to clear Nick. This book revolves around the science that police and rescue workers work with and how they can jeopardize the case.

I finished Things I Should Have Known. I am currently reading Breathe by Abbi Glines. It has 333 pages and I stopped on page 37.

A. I am not very far into my book so there hasn't been much talk besides characters. But it does talk about the beach and her bike rides. The book is told through Sadie and Jax's point of view. Sadie works as a maid at Jax's summer home. She rides her bike to work everyday. It talks about the ocean because Jax's house is located on its own island off the coast. She also describes the beach by Jax's house a few different times in the book so far.

I am reading Born Survivors by Wendy Holden. It has 366 pages and I stopped on page 245.

B. Dr. Mengele plays a big part in this book because he would take away babies just to torture them. All of the main characters are pregnant and learn horror stories about him. In one incident he intentionally starved a baby just to see how long it would take. Even though the way he carried out the experiments was wrong, Mengele made many beneficial scientific discoveries. Science also plays a part in how the women and babies survived. When a women sees her baby her body automatically produces sufficient milk for the baby.

Im reading Plague by Michael Grant and I'm on page 219.

B.Some science connected to my book would be how the kids get their powers. They believe its from a nuclear failure from the power plant and some of the toxic waste is sitting under the town. Underneath the earth its just enough to kept from killing them, be not from affect them. Their power comes in forms of adaptation. The animals also have adapted. This includes, talking wolves, flying snakes, and bats that live under water.

I am reading Second Impact by David and Perri Klass. It has 279 pages and I stopped at page 85 today.

B. My book is related to science in the sense of sports injuries. This makes sense, because of the one authors is a pediatrician. One of the main characters Carla tears her ACL in soccer, and she is very in detail about her injury. She even requests to stay awake for her surgery so she can tell the reader what she is experiencing. The reader gets to learn exactly what a surgeon is doing to person's knee in an ACL surgery.

I finished Asylum by Madeleine Roux. I started Miss peregrine's home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, there are 343 pages and I stopped on page 61.
B. Anything related to science in my book could by magic or possibilities of it. Many of the children at the home posses "powers." Abe, the main characters grandfather, has seen them use the powers. Jacob, the main character, was told stories about the "powers" and the children, and wonders if they are real. Now that his grandfather has been murdered, he wants to find out if the story are true.

While he was out there, he made a garden and planting potatoes that he stole from the cafeteria. Luke has spent most of his life growing up on a farm, so the outdoors mean a lot to him. He is always thinking about things such as if grass grows differently in different parts of the world.

I'm reading past perfect by Leila Sales. I'm on page 116 of 306.
A. My book has to do with the Civil War and those times. Lots of outdoor scenes referencing the heat. They create their own clothes. They don't use cell phones. They have scenes like the kidnapping scene is in the woods. They use strong rope to tie the person up and use a stump to sit on. Nothing to do with pollution and recycling in my book. But they don't use plastic water bottle for sure.

I am still reading Insurgent. I stopped on page 386 of 525.

A. In my book they speak a lot of the environment. They make up these specific systems to keep the environment good. The Amity is head for water systems. Erudite makes up all this helpful technology to help the waste, pollution, and energy conservation. Also "outside the fence" is supposed to be this deserted dry place that they have never been, and its environment is different than all the factions environments.

I'm currently reading "Evil Star," by Anthony Horowitz. I'm on page 219 out of 318. Because the author writes in great detail there is many things that are not clean in Peru, where the setting is in this book. The author makes it clear that the environment is not taken care of, and disease spreads very easily there. Water there is describe as tasting metallic. Recycling is not mentioned in this book, leading me to believe that recycling is not done in Peru, at all. Pollution is everywhere in Peru, the water is dirty and the shantytowns spread disease there. The outdoors are also poorly treated and are jagged and unforgiving there. So in conclusion, the environment of Peru is deadly, dirty, and misused.

I am reading The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty. I am on page 106 out of 340 pages.
B. In my novel there are three girls and three boys. The girls all go to the same school and are friends, they're each writing to a Brooker School boy as part of an assignment. One boy keeps writing and requesting that the girls go on various missions such as pulling the fire alarm, starting the sprinkles, and stealing exam papers for science. Each of these missions he wants completed are all so he doesn't have to take the science exam.
