I finished the book Shaken by Tim Tebow. It is 203 pages in length.

In the book Shaken it talks about many different times in the book where he and his family and friends go overseas to help with the struggle to find clean water. The book starts out giving a background of who Tim Tebow is and the struggles that he went through during his career in football. It also talks about how important his faith is and how much it impacts the way he lives and his actions. He talks about how him and his family have been on multiple mission trips overseas to help people in communities that have been struck by disaster and how they spread the word of god and the blessings that come from god. He is a very religious man that takes his faith very seriously and is more focused on others than he is on himself.

I am currently reading Now You See Them, Now You Don't by Gordon Korman and I am on page 54 of 141.

In my book earth is pretty much used a lot because these teenage kids run from there parents. They don't have anywhere to go so they hide outside or somewhere were they have somewhere safe to stay the night so they don't get caught. If they do get caught the have to stay in prison for the rest of there lives because family won't take them because there so bad and they don't know where there mom and dad are. After looking for places to sleep they finally found an old bus and ended up staying there for 5 days without leaving or getting caught. That is why I really like this book and suggest other people to read it as well.

I am currently reading Rousey By Ronda Rousey. I am on page 143 out of 300.
In my book Ronda has several birthdays, but they aren't birthdays that most people have. At her birthdays she has them at a gym that she trains at and most of her friends are people that UFC fight with her. At her parties they train and after that they spar which kinda seems weird because basically they are beating each other up on her birthday. Then after all that her parents take her out to eat, but that is normal. Now that Ronda is older she has adult parties which means they drink and do what normal people do on a birthday.

I am currently reading Sickened by Julie Gregory and I am on page 74 of 244.

B. This book is a story of a little girl who suffers from munchausen by proxy. This is a illness in which a caregiver makes up or causes an illness or injury in a person under his or her care. In this case the mom is the caregiver and the little girl is the victim. Recently in the book the mom has been very aggressive and she explains that it is because she is pregnant with a baby boy. Julie does not really know how to take this news considering Julie gets most of the attention due to her "illnesses."

I'm currently reading Percy Jackson: The Battle of The Labyrinth. I'm on page 10. Over the break, I finished Elizabeth Smart.

B. In my book, I'm not very far but its mostly about the Titan Kronos. He's the father of Zeus, Hades, and Poseidon. Those three are brothers. They don't like eachother much though. They were almost eaten by their father but they killed him and chopped him up into millions of tiny pieces.

I am currently reading Sold by Zana Muhsen and I stopped on page 125 out of 275.

A. my book takes place in Yamen. this is a very hot dry place in the world and they do not get a lot of rain. there is no clean water, energy conservation, or real environment needs. water comes from wells that catch the rain water. Yamen is a very poor place so most people can't use power. Yamen is very dry so roads are hard to keep up with so they will take out big jeeps that can drive in the dry deserts and up mountains.

I am currently reading Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst and I am on page 133 of 358.

A. My story is all about Eve and her loss of memories. Eve is a teenage girl with magic powers, which are used at random times and makes her go unconscious. Within the story, Eve goes out into the woods and discovers buried memories from her past. While walking through the woods with her friend Zach, Eve remembers a memory that withheld her going through an old aged forest. The difference, though, is that the forest she's walking through now was recently made, and was previously a public farm. In conclusion, earth plays a role in my story as Eve uses her surroundings to uncover buried memories from her past.

I am currently reading The Last Fighter Pilot by Jerry Yellin. Today I got to page 89 of 197.
In this book the earth is mentioned a lot. The terrain of the Japanese islands varies a lot. Some islands are almost flat and others are very mountainous. The war causes lots of damage to the environment. Bombs and fire caused many of the islands to have very little vegetation. After a battle the islands are down to almost bare rock.

I am reading In My Skin by Brittney Griner. I am on page 208 of 216.
In the section I just read, there is a birthday mishap. Brittney wants to get a puppy so she gets on for her girlfriend. However, her girlfriend does not like it and struggles with it. She gets super mad att Brittney. With that be said, Brittney decides to get rid of the dog since it is upsetting her girlfriend. When her girlfriend finds out that the dog is gone, she gets even more mad at Brittney. This was the only thing about birthdays I think.

I am currently reading Rumble by Ellen Hopkins. I stopped on page 40 of 546. I finished Crash Into Me by Liz Seccuro last week.

B. The main character in this book is named Matthew Turner. In the beginning of the book, he talked about how his little brother committed suicide. Matthew is still dealing with the death a year later, and often puts that anger into his writing for school. His girlfriend, Hayden, also has a little brother, who was friends with Matthews brother. Both dealing with grief, they often fight with each other a lot. I like this book so far and I want to read it more.

A. Yesterday (Monday April 22) was Earth Day. There were special events held around the globe. Write about anything in your current book that addresses earth, clean water, recycling, the outdoors, waste, pollution, energy conservation, or the environment.

I am reading My Story by Elizabeth Smart. Today I stopped on page 315 out of 348.

Most of the story took place outside. During the 9 months she was he'd captive they camped outside and relied on the environment to provide food and water. They had to utilize any water sources they could find and often had to drink dirty water. After returning she traveled around the world. She did a semester abroad and then did a mission trip to help people in Paris.

I am currently reading a book called My Enemy's Cradle, by Sara Young. I am on page 13 of 362 pages. I also finished Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mcjuire.
A.
In my book you can find environment in almost the entire book. This book is set in Holland. There is still the Nazi fighting and Jewish people still hiding. But Cyria is in a bad place in her life. Her aunt is going to have a baby at the worst time to have a baby, when they are in a middle of a war. But Cyrla is also facing being kicked out of her family because they believe they will not have enough supplies to last them until after the war. Overall, I like the book so far. I am really interested in what will happen in the end of the book.

I am currently reading Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi. There are 435 pages and today I stopped on page 34. Over break, I finished Ignite Me by the same author.
As I was reading today, the main character, Juliette, says that she needs to restore the earth. In the last book, she took down the the commander of the Reestablishment by shooting him. Now that she has the whole nation behind her back to take the rest of the Reestablishment she can finally restore things. One of them being the earth. She wants to address issues such as farming, irrigation, and moving civilians out of the compounds. Right now the earth is like a dessert because there are no trees or clean water, and Juliette wants to change that.

I am currently reading After The Game by Abbi Glines. There are 343 pages and I am on page 19. I just recently finished Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines as well.
In this book you can definitely find many references to earth. Many of the books main plot points are surrounded by what the weather was like, or how the leaves fell from the trees in the fall. With this book surrounding itself in a small football town, everyone is always outside. late night field parties, football games, even strolls in the park. I really like the fact that this author really emphasizes weather and the feeling of the outside in her books. I really am enjoying this books so far, I am so excited to keep reading.

I am currently reading Last Bus Out. I am on page 215 of 225.

A, . Yesterday (Monday April 22) was Earth Day. There were special events held around the globe. Write about anything in your current book that addresses earth, clean water, recycling, the outdoors, waste, pollution, energy conservation, or the environment.

In my book a boy named Courtney just survived the catastrophic hurricane Katrina. Katrina peaked at a category 5 hurricane with winds at 175 mph. Not only did they have the winds and rain they also had tornadoes with it too. In Mississippi on August 29, 2005 Katrina produced 11 tornadoes that day and some of which damaged the power lines and houses even more. Courtney steals a bus and he meets a friend along the way. They go around and gather many people on this bus. He gathered about 300 people all together and looses his freedom because he passes a police roadblock. Hurricane Katrina has a lot of things to do with the earth, and how we try to get the earth clean after Mother Nature comes.
