I am reading the book The Cabin by Natasha Preston, this book has 317 pages.

In the book I can relate to lots of the character, but kenzie is probably the only one that I see that could be me. Kenzie is a crazy and outgoing girl who know her way around. She talks to lots of guys but only loves the ones that know how to be nice and can care for her. She's also someone that doesn't take anything, she loves to fight and can throw down. Kenzie is someone that I would get along with because she know how to handle herself and protects her friends. Im a person that cares for my friends and would do anything for them and I know how to throw down too.

C. How are YOU like any of the characters in the book you are currently reading?

I am reading 'Life to the fullest' by Darrin Donnelly. I am on page 79 of 268.

I am like the main character in the book due to the fact that I like him sometimes lose focus of my beliefs and feel as if they do not mean anything because things go wrong in life. The book is about a football coach. The coach's school is closing at the end of the year and he has been coaching here for over 30 years. If the school closes he doesn't know what his family is going to do to land back on their feet because his retirement will be mostly lost and they barely get by as is. Not only does he have to worry about the school and his finances his team is playing in the state championship game on Saturday in the book.

I just started reading Percy Jackson. I'm on page 17 out of 375. The author starts out talking about how his life sucks. Which is funny, when it's coming from a twelve-year-old. He says his life is difficult and people should be grateful to not live his life. He said if someone thinks that they're living a life like his, they should close the book immediately. He also says that if someone reading the book has a normal life, they should be grateful to believe that everything in the book is fiction.

I am currently reading Rudy by Daniel Ruettiger. I got to page 54 of 278 today.

A.
In this book the author is saying to never give up on your dreams. No matter where you start it doesn't determine where you will end up. The author of this book came from a poor family in Illinois. He was not very smart and had very little hope to go to college and play football. He never gave up and eventually made it to Notre Dame and ended up getting to play in a game.

I am reading On Writing: A Memoir of The Craft by Stephen King and I am on page 72 of 291.

A. What is the author saying about life and living through this book? Explain.

Right now Stephen King is talking about his life growing up and who influenced him and made him into the writer he is today. He did not have one of the easiest lives as a kid, but over everything he strived to right a good story from a very young age. Writing was a big part of life for Stephen King and I do think considering he came from a very poor family he had to work very hard to pursue this dream and further his education. I think a main message he is trying to put out for aspiring writers is to constantly work on the craft of writing and make your writing heard by the people around you. I say this because as I read of Stephen King's childhood I see all the ways he made his writing heard and I know that this gave him a lot of opportunities to move forward with writing.

I am currently reading Six Months Later by Natalie D. Richards. I am on page 165 of 323.

C. How are YOU like any of the characters in the book you are currently reading?

I believe that many people can relate to the main character of this book, Chloe. She has forgotten that last six months of her life, and feels out of place everywhere she goes. I think that everybody has felt a little lost, confused, or just out of place. I have experienced many instances where I have felt this exact same way. Experiencing that kind of feeling is very scary, and she is handling it just like anyone would, with the help from the few people she can trust.

I am currently reading The Love that Split the World by Emily Henry. I stopped on page 228 of 390.

A. Life in this book is a big mess. The main character, Natalie, is mentally unstable and gets visions of 'the other world'. Life to her has meant going through these visions and dealing with them. Basically, the author is saying that life can be tough sometimes, but you just need the right people to get through it. For example, in the book, Natalie meets a guy named Beau. Beau goes through the same things she does, seeing 'the other world'. Except his 'other world' is different than Natalie's. Together, these two must find a guy and save him, but only in three months. Living through this book may be tough, but I believe the author wants everyone to keep pushing, and that it will be okay at some point.

I am reading the book Fake ID by Lamar Giles. I am on page 178 of 301.

A. What is the author saying about life and living through this book? Explain.


I can say the author of this book is telling us that we shouldn't be afraid to live in the real world. The main character, Nick Pearson, moves schools at the begging of the year and his family is certainly not like others, they work for the government and are apposed to moving every single time something goes wrong in the world. Nick alone has moved schools countless times and when he goes to his new school everything is different. All the classes are different, he even points out that the bleachers remind him of a greasy, silky texture that just keeps getting done and done, over and over. Nick faces the truth when he gets into the locker room after his P.E. class. Giles really wants to point out that its okay to be yourself and its okay to be different several ways in this book.

I am reading Send by Patty Blount, I stopped on page 184 of 253.

C. How are YOU like any of the characters in the book you are currently reading?

I would say I'm like Dan because he doesn't really do things in high school because he's afraid of getting caught. I also think I'm like many other characters in the book because I could relate to some of the things that they do in the book. Dan has many friends in school but when it comes to people outside it drops a lot because he never wants to do anything with any one when they ask because he's scared of asking his parents to go and hang out with people, even when people want to come over to do stuff he always says he's busy because he doesn't talk to anyone outside of school.

I am reading Phoenix Island by John Dixion, I stopped on page 171 of 311.

A. The author was a boxer growing up and he uses boxing as a way to teach the lessons that he learned and puts them into the book. He recalls boxing lessons that are true to life. An example is like this, "Parker is one of those guys who fight with pure rage, they get up in your face and try to knock you off your feet in the first round"(Dixon 149). This lesson tells me that a challenge that I face will go away if I weather the storm and face it head on. Lessons like these are scatter through the book, but this one is my favorite. These life lessons are a very important part of the book and they make it really enjoyable to read.

I am reading splinter I stoped at pg 198 of 298

He is saying that it is not vary good for the main character in the book. she lost her mom and everyone is blaming her father. and a lot of new evidence is appearing that is not helping. but I guess for others it is perfectly fine to live here. it seems like a small town like Hartford but different in every way.

I am reading the book Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I stopped on page 325 of 412.

A.
I believe the main character of my book, Katy is struggling to go through the loss of losing her family because of the government. She is angry and is going to do anything to get things back to the way they were before. So Katy gets her support from Damon. Damon is not like us. He is a alien trying to get back his sister from the government as well. I believe the author wrote this book to make people not give up on having a good family life. Overall, I like this book and like the foreshadowing in the book. It makes It more interesting to read.

I am reading the book Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. I stopped on page 247 out of 461.

A. Mafi has many different ways of saying how life is important in this book. Juliette is a girl that hates her special power even though hers is the most powerful. Juliette can kill people by her touch. She thinks that there is no point in living anymore if she can't even though people. But the author points out many times in the book with characters telling her that she is very useful. There is a war coming up and Juliette will be essential for winning this war. All in all, the author writes about how every life is precious and unique in its own way.

I am reading I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall, and I am on page 302 of 314.

A. The author is talking a lot about life and how to deal with it. The main character is living in an unknown forest location, and she struggles to survive. The author shows all the different ways you can learn to survive in the wild. For example, the main character needs to find food, shelter, and water to survive. This is shown throughout all her actions in the book. The main character also needs to figure out the mystery background with her father.
