I am currently reading I Pledge Allegiance by Chris Lynch. It has 183 pages and I am on page 36.
I think the colors Black and White. I chose white because in the beginning of the book it starts as the four main characters as children, and everything was carefree and happy. I also chose the color black because when the four boys turned 19 (one of them was 21) one of them got drafted to the Vietnam war, and they all made a pledge to each other that if one of them got drafted they all got drafted.

I have just finished the book If we survive by Andrew Klavan.
I think the colors blue and black represent my characters rather well. Both of these colors represent unity which is a very important thing in my book. The reason why both these colors apply throughout the book is, while in the jungle you see the characters slowly morph into the roles of staying united even under rough circomstances. Another way that these two colors apply is when faced whether or not to sacrifice their own lives they, always put the group ahead of themselves.

I am reading UnDivided by Neal Shusterman. It has 372 pages and I am on page 204.
I think the colors blue and black best represent UnDivided. I think black represents UnDivided because there is a lot of protecting that happens, but there is also some gloomy and sad parts within the book. The people in UnDivided are often trying to protect each other, but end up gloomy or sad because they are rejected or the person they are protecting is killed. They do everything in their power to prevent things from happening, but it usually happens anyways. I also think blue represents Undivided because there is love that happens in it. Risa loves both Connor and Cam, but since Connor is the one she is near currently she is more into him and slowly forgetting about Cam.

I just finished Bone by Jeff Smith it had 147 pages.
The colors that fit my book are a mixture of red and white. While the characters are pure and mean well they are causing a lot of danger and pain to those they are around. I also chose these colors because they represent most of the characters in the book and in a round about way they explain the emotions of each character. Red represents a lot of what Phoney Bone feels almost 100% of the time which is anger and despair but is also full of himself.

I am reading Catching Jordan which has 281 pages and I stopped on page 130 today. The color purple means royalty. When it comes to Jordan, she is technically considered royalty. She is the captain of the football team for her school with a team full of boys, plus her father plays for the NFL. The color red represents strength, passion, and energy. Jordan has all of the characteristics. She is strong enough for a girl to play on the football team. Her love and dedication to football has gotten her the opportunity for Alabama to come and see how she plays to possibly get a scholarship to play football in college. She is very passionate about the sport even though her father doesn't support her as a football athlete.

I am reading The World Trade Center Attack. The book has 192 pages and I am on page 59. The colors I chose are yellow and black. The color black means its serious and also death. 9/11 resulted in a total of 3,000 deaths/missings. 9/11 was a serious thing around the nation and flights all over the country were landed. Normal citizens got their children from school and went home to safety. Yellow means friendly and positive. Many of the peoples stories that are told in my book are of their survival stories and how they helped others on the way out. Brian Clark was on the 81st floor of the second Trade center when he was deciding if he should go up or down with some co-workers. While arguing about it, he heard a mans cry for help. He helped the man and they both made it out to safety before the tower collapsed.

She is also positive because she is always trying to fined Will. Orange means fun and cheeriness. Anna is happy about seeing Will for the first time. The story so far is fun because it has a lot of details. The story is also positive because it makes it seem like she is going to find Will.

I am currently reading Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell I finished on page 121 out of 186 pages. The fist color that I think best represents this book is brown, the brown represents friend, outdoors, Earth these are all in this book. The main character is friends with a dog which she is dependable on for keeping her company. She is out in the wilderness, she had to make her own shelter and find her own food. The other color on the other chart I also thought brown fit this book also. With the references to earth she is interacting with earth. She is also with nature and wild life. She interacts with animals and other creaters also.

I'm reading the book Unbroken and I got to page 112 out of 380 pages.

Since this book is about war, I chose the colors black and orange. The color black indicates death and evil. During the war, bombs were dropped and many people were killed. Also, Louis Zamperini was taken to a work camp by the Japanese where he also witnessed many people being worked almost to the point of death. Although a lot of them didn't die, he experienced what people looked like before they had reached their time. The other color that I chose was orange. Orange indicates courage and strength. Throughout this story, Louis shows a lot of courage and hope and he never gives up.

Yesterday I recently finished the Rose Society by Marie Lu.
I chose the colors red and black. I chose the color red because love is what drives the main character to seek revenge. the negative of anger also goes along with the book because she believes that everything was her fault. Black goes with the protection she has for her daughter and everything she will do to keep her safe. Death also symbolizes her father whom she killed, her lover who was killed because of her, and an evil prince to make a point.

My book is Punishes it has 326 pages and I am on 312.
My book compares for red and white. Red symbolizes love, energy, and dedication. This is what Vanessa feels towards her kids and her second husband. They gave her hope and a purpose of her life that was filled with terror and disappointment. White Symbolizes purity and innocence. This was Vanessa as a child while she was being exposed the the horrors of her mother and grandfather. picked these two colors because one represents her life as a young child, and on represents her as an adult. Two different colors showing meaning to two different time periods.

The book I am reading is "Red Blood, Black Sad". Theres 315 pages and I'm on page 226. The two color I would pick for the my book would be gold and black. I chose black because it means serious and it means death. This book is a very serious book but it is also a book that deals with a lot of death and destruction. I chose gold because it means history and traditions. This book deals with a lot of history and it talks about a lot of tradition towards Japanese and American soldiers.

I am reading Brians return and it has 130 some pages. Today I stopped on page 60.
Brown- friendly, earth, outdoors, longevity, conservative, dogmatic, conservative.
gray- security, reliable, intelligence, solid, gloomy sad and conservative.
Brian is brown because he goes back to the woods by himself. He Finds ways to live in the forest and is friendly to most animals. At school and home is friendly to the people he talks to otherwise he says quiet. I also gave him gray because he is very reliable. If he says he will do something he will do it, also he is very intelligent in the outdoors. He isn't really sad or gloomy just isn't very social and doesn't like the students and some people of the world with all the technology.

I am currently reading Dead in the Water by Chris Lynch. I am currently on page 134 out of 188. The two colors that best describe me as a write would be Red and Silver Metallic. I chose red because I really read aggressively when I find a really good book. I get really get into books when I have an interest in them. If not, I don't really want to read them anymore. Also, when I get reading in a good book, I can read really fast because it is easier to process. I chose Silver Metallic because I like to read older books that actually happened. I don't mind a sci-fi book here and there, but I mainly stick with history books.

I am reading Dog tags. There are 209 pages and i stopped on 110.
One off the colors i chose is blue. Blue means authority. Authority fits well with this book. You have to have authority when you are in the war and leading a team.
I also chose dark red. Dark red means rich. This fits in good with my book because they left a camp in the war to find a rich frenchman. They want to get to this frenchman so he can take there dog and keep him tell the war is done.

I am reading Once. It has 163 pages and I stopped on page 60. The two colors that I think represent my book are blue and white. I think blue because the main character feels trust and also fear. He has trust in his parents because he believes they are coming to save him. He also is fearful because he is on a journey alone. He doesn't quite know whats going on and where everyone went. I also think white because is in innocent. He doesn't know what to do and what is happening. He also has faith in himself and his parent that they will be together again.
