  1. 1) Birdland by Tracy Mack
    2) I read from page 56 – 79
    3) In the book, Jed starts to realize that Zeke, his older brother who wrote electrifying poetry but died of diabetes, was the most important part of his life. He couldn’t stop remembering most of the time he had with his older brother. The flashback consisted on Zeke choosing not to take his insulin. He thinks that he’s fine without it, but his side effects say otherwise. Jed did anything in his power to fix Zeke’s side effects.
    4) Jed is a regular, all-around teen who has his life turned around after his brother’s death. With that, he is stuck with a school project of a documentary of the east side New York City. But when Jed finds a mysterious homeless girl, he thinks it’s the only way to know how to be on his own.

  2. Title: Linger
    Tonight I read from page 28 to 49
    What I read tonight: Cole (one of the main characters) is human again and he is still adjusting to it. He feels exhausted, bleary and confused. Grace and Isabel (two other main characters) talk about the dissapearance of Olivia who had gotten bitten by werewolves and turned into one. Sam and Grace talk about their future and college. They have to decide what to do about going to the same school.
    All the main characters Grace, Sam, Cole, and Isabel all deal with struggles in their life. Isabel still deals with her brothers death. Sam and Grace deal with Grace turning into a were wolf and their future. Cole deals with adjusting to human life

  3. Title of the Book : Money Hungry
    Author of the Book : Sharon G. Flake
    I read from page 62 to 94
    1) Tonight I read about Raspberry and her friend Ja’nae working for Miss Neeta and getting paid. =] Though, Ja’nae has to give the money she earned to Raspberry because Ja’nae burrowed $200 from Raspberry to get a new leather jacker for the boy she likes. Also, Raspberry has something going out with a boy named Sato. It’s obvious that he likes her!
    2) I think that the personality is straight up. I think this because on Page 72, Raspberry asks Ja’nae for all the money she earned today. Also, this is the first thing that Raspberry said when they made it down stairs! She wasn’t worrying about nothing else other than her money. On Page 72, it says ” ‘Pay up,’ I tell Ja’nae, when we get outside onto Miss Neeta’s porch. I don’t mean to be so cold-blooded but business is business. Also, I think this because Raspberry once told his mom that she wouldn’t be wanted by a doctor since her mother and a rich doctor have something going on. She specifically said ” ‘He a doctor, Momma. What you think somebody like him wants somebody like you, who lives in the projects with gangbangers and junkies,’ ” Page 10. To me, this shows that Raspberry knows that she’s not living in a fairytale world. She’s just really straight up.

  4. I read ‘The Girl Who Cried Monster’ By R.L. Stine .
    Tonight I read from page 48 to pahe 80 .
    Retell ; After the shocking discovery that Lucy makeS , she decides to tell her family . She runs home & yells everything she saw ; the bug-eating libraian , Mr. Mortans head floating out of his shirt & into the air like a balloon with a deep black hole as a mouth & giantic eyes . As she almost had a panic attack , her family refused to believe her . Her father yelled at her everytime she even spoke of monsters . Since Lucy couldn’t believe it herself , she went back to assure herself that what had happened was real or if her imagination was just messing with her . The next morning she left for her appointment & waited until Mr. Mortan was all alone to do what he did the last time . At first all he does is organize , but then as she convinces herself that there’s nothing to watch , he takes his bugs out & handful by handful stuffs them in his mouth . Then he takes out a turtle & eats it likes its lobster , only it wasn’t even dead : it was widely awake . Lucy finds the key to the library & runs like her life is about to end . When she gets gome she yells for help , only it’s not her family who comes , knock knock it’s Mr. Mortan at the door .
    About my character ; Lucy isn’t the type to give up . If she can’t find a way , she’ll make one until she proves she’s right . “My name is Lucy Dark . I’m twelve . . . ” ( Page 1 ) She has straight black hair , she’s short for her age , a round face , a straight nose & straight teeth ( from page 2 ) . She loves scaring people with her realistic monster stories & reading books about monsters , or paranormal activites & such .

    4.The main character personality is a dreamer. “Just for the sake of the experiment, I wiggle my nose like samantha on Bewitched.” Another one is “I would click my heels to see if i’m coming home,but i didn’t.”

  6. 1. Title: Worlds Dumbest Criminals by Daniel Butler and Alan Ray
    2. Pages Read: I read from pages 89 through pages 109
    3. What I read!: i read about an Australian man that was shopping and shopping, buying the newest trends and the newest models. The problem was that he had no money. He owed a lot of money to his credit cards. The credit card company went to his house and took his stuff and then later he tried to steal “his money” from the bank but got arrested. What a guy.
    4.Main CHARACTER: These character are very creative. They find dumb alternate to the problem their facing. They try to be sneaky in the scene of trying not to get caught but they do things so obviously that it is funny. They are open minded because they don’t care what they do even if they don’t like what they have to do to try not to get caught. One case is that one person is allergic to fish but he ran straight to a fish market to escape the cops. Also, an other one is a person tried to rob a bank to recuperate this money (the What I read story).

He decided to get back at her by giving away her phone number to all the “creeps” in school. His plan backfired. Somehow Tasha figured out it was Ricky and put his phone number and name. So instead of the creeps calling Tasha, they’ve been calling Ricky ! 4. Ricky is a boy who goes to school where he is picked on a lot .

Delilah is looking for clues to the death of her grandparents and Stephanie. She is asking trying to ask everyone what happened but so far, no good answers.
    4. Delilah is a curious person. She wonders and ask a lot of questions. She is also the type of girl who makes stupid choices (Ex. “shoplift”, hang out with a smoker/drinker, disobey mother, ect.). ” You’d think someone who’s seen you half-naked would be a little more enthusiastic about picking you up on time. [….] Finn crushed a spent butt into the ashray and turned down the radio, blowing out a plume of blue smoke from between his lips.” and ” ‘Delilah. I had. To. Leave work yesterday. To. Pick. You up from Blush.’ [……] ‘You were supposed to be grounded! You almost got arrestes yesterday!’ “.

    3) The thing that I had read about today was the things that Jack had to do in his life as he was working hard labor in the Nazi death camp in the world.Also the thing that I had read about today was that Jack had passed through at least two years without being killed like some of the many other people he spent some time with or in this case his fellow jewish friends.And also something else that I had read tonight was that a lot of people were sent out on death walks in which mostly only the killers came back and nobody else would come back because they would most likely be dead.
    4) The personality of Jack is that he was willing to do mostly anything so that he did not need to lose his life in that time in the world.For example Jack would carry or do anything that he was told to like”never to run to the gates that seperated him from others and the real world.Also he was the type of person who was very strong.For example like it said in the book he was the one who missed his family a whole lot but had to just live with all the things he had left to see in his life and he just went through all of it in his life.

    4. My main charcter, Georgia, doesn’t stop at anything until she gets what she wants. At times she could be a little snobby and selfish towards her friends. She can really hurt the people she loves when she all for something.

  19. Ghost boy by iain lawrenece
    Page27 to page50
    In my book Harold went to the circus in Oregon but before ge could go in a group of teens started calling him names ” there goes ghost boy” page 30 and they throw his jar of worms and his fish. But when he dud go back to the ficus a few days later he meet another albino which was the ring leader of the circus. This made him feel less emotional about being an outcast
    My main character is a very quiet boy that likes to observe things around him.”the train whistled at batsford’s field whereof started around the long bend toward liberty and to the rattlesnake.the ghost lifted his head and his thin pale lips were set in a line that was neither a frown nor smile” (page2)
    ” it was a sad little voice ,even more shocking for Harold than the sight of the creature half man and half ape that towered above him”(page 15)

  20. TITLE: Slave To Love
    AUTHOR: Rebecca Campbell
    Tonight’s Reading: 35-54
    Tonight on my reading i read about how people think that Andrew is gay because they thought he had a funny face and had a weird expression when they asked him if he spends lots of time thinking about male beauty. But Andrew just usually always ignores the fact that other people tease him. Also, tonight i read about how Andrew never had a chance to tell Ophelia about his new car.But Ophelia and Alice were shocked at the fact that he was aware of how crappy his car was.
    This Shows That my Main character doesn’t care about the thoughts of other, because he knows there are time people talk about him or tease him but he doesn’t pay attention . Also he always keeps moving on with his life, i found it surprising that he would show with a car that hasn’t been clean in years, also the paint was coming off and it smelled really bad, because people his age usually always cares what others think of them, but he doesn’t.

  21. 1.Bone by Jeff Smith 2.Tonight I read from page 90 to 118, the end. 3.Rose thinks that Braire is the hooded one.The Bones run as fast as they could to save Phoney Bone and Thorn from the sacrificial ceramony.Bone almost got eaten by the Stickeater.And lastly Thorn was found unharmed. 4.Thorn is a fighter and a lover and a fighter.Thorn said one day before going to fight “I didnt tell you because I am going alone.”Also Thorn also said” I made agreements with Ted for you to stay in his farmhouse.

  22. The Dark and Hollow Places
    I read from page 80 tp page 120
    Today i read about how my main character how she think she is beginning to feel sick.But im still confused,who is giving the virus to make you change.Also she is afraid that she will end up being one of the people that are laying on the floor.i think that eventually she will try to fight it and make sure that she is in good condition and healthy
    The social issue of wealth is being showned.SHe doesnt think that she can stay in this place and try to feed herself at the same time its completely impossible.Especially when you live in a place where its not much of what you would want.
    Another social issue being shown is poverty.She canteven be able to walk ointo a market without having to look at prices.THis is because she doesnt havethe money because she waisted it on the journey over to this place.she is really struggling with getting food for herself but she is really trying to pick herself back up.

  23. 1. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
    2. Tonight i read from page 25-50
    3. So far in the book thomas has slept one day in the glade and he has also been a helper in a prank on Alby a boy who doesnt like him.when the prank was pulled alby said that he didnt care if thomas did the prank or not but since he was there if another one happened there would b blood. when thomas slept on his first day in the middle of the night Newt took thomas to show him a monster that haunts the Glades. when thomas woke up he felt as if he had been to the glades befor and that he wants to be a runner-someone who tries to figure a way out of the maze. alby was taken on a tour of the glades.
    4. thomas is a very jumpy and scared character.”he did grab a sandwich, but hesitated,the writhing, monstrous image of what he’d seen in the shack popping bak in his head.”(pg22) “this thought gave him a chill, made him wonder if a griever might come charging toward them at any minute.” (45)

  24. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
    I read from pages 53 -73
    What i read about tonight was about that Thomas was gaining his memory from scratch. He has met some new people since he woke up at the beginning of the book. He has also met some new people. Some of these people are Alby, Jeff, and Clint.
    Thomas’ personality is like a very thoughtful person. One reason to back this up is when on page 59, he was look ing at Alby and he really was getting in to all her details. Also on page 72 he was really thinking about how Ben was talking andhow he was moving.

  25. 1) Go ask alice by anonomys. 2) page 30 to 51. 3) today I read about Alice going on her date with bill and to her it went incredible.He then introduces her to a couple of friends that later on gets her addicted to the drugs because they gave her speed which she enjoyed. Also when she was with gran outside she sees Roger her first crush/ love. 4) I think that alices personality is she needs somthing to fall back on .A she is the girl who is under peer presure and cares for opinions. ” I positivly can’t wait to try it again. No wonder it’s called speed.” and” I straightens my hair which I loved but my mother hated it.” It seems she craves the social life and is trying to be cool.

  26. Hi!
    1)Today I read My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
    2) Tonight I read from page 104 to 176
    3) Tonight Julia was talking about how she loved Capbel so much and because of him she can’t have a successful relationship. Campbell also still loves Julia but is afraid of commitment. Julia met Kate for the first time and she feels bad for her. Sara remebers kates pet fish and how he went through so much and she wished that Kate would have gotten better and not the fish.
    4) There are many main characters but I think that Anna is am incredible person. She lives to save her sister, her whole life eand world revolves around Kate. She knows more about medicine than alot of medical students and she is kind to everyone. I think that it is totally okay that she wants to stick up for herself for once in her life. Her parents don’t pay attention to her and they revolve their whole lives around kate. They are just stressing themselves out “waiting for Kate to die”. Forgetting that thy have 2 other kids. Also, they “never asked her if she wanted to give anything to Kate”. She was always forced and if she’s decided not to give Kate the kidney she has a really good reason.

  27. 1.The Red Ribbon Army by: Akira Toriyama
    2.Tonight I read from page 8 to 66

    “Come on! Make your move! I don’t care that im little i will still mess you up” pg 66.

  29. Book: Girl, Stolen
    Author: April Henry
    26-48
    Griffin has arrived in a place that is not mentioned in the book. He’s talking to some man. He gets really upset because Griffin tell me that he didn’t bring the supplies plus that he has a girl in the backseat. While they are talking about this, Cheyenne is hearing everything but they can’t tell because she is tied up under the covers. When Griffin gets backs to the car, he takes the covers off Cheyenne and see shes been crying. He takes her out the car so he can take her to the house but instead of letting her cane alone by herself, he takes her because he thinks if he gives her the cane she might go away and try to find the police. Theres a dog with them name Roy and he starts walking with them while Griffin controls Cheyenne but little did he know that she can see with her left eye a little.
    Cheyenne is really shy and is scared because every chance she gets to talk to Griffin she says ” let me go please i wont tell the cops” and she barley talks.

  30. 1. The Diary of Anne Frank By: Anne Frank
    2. Pages 36-100
    3. Anne Franks family and the Van Dans know that the Nazis went to their homes and think that they are all dead. Someone has broke in at night and has stole things from the office that the “Secret Annex” is located. The Secret Annex is what the Franks called their hide out home. They can make no movments no nothing. One drop of a book could track asomeones attention.

  31. 1.) What Happen to Cass McBride
    2.)Gail Gales
    3.) I read from pages 40 to 60
    4.) Tonight I read about how after Kyle buried Cass alive, and left her ther underground to rot and to feel how he felt now that his brother is dead. The word got out somehow and Kyle was taken into custody where he announced where Cass was buried and tried to explain why he did it. Police officers and detectives went to the scene where they found Cass almost unconcscience.
    5.) Cass in my opinion is a very sweet girl who acts differently around his friends. Cass in no way tried to hurt David and she seems very guilty that David is dead because of her.

  32. 1. Girl, Stolen by April Henry
    2. Tonight, I read from page 47-71
    3. Retell: When I last left off, she was tied up and the man who told her to drink something had left and told her not to move. Now she is trying to find a way to get herself out. She tried using a sharp piece of glass which she smashed on the table to get her hands untied. Cheyenne is afraid that she might end up cutting herself, but she knew if she waited too long both of the men would come back and do worse things to her. On pages 65-67 Cheyenne tried to make the Griffin believe she ran away. She locked the door and opened the window to make it seem like she ran away. But when Griffin came he saw her crouched in the side of the bath tub covering her mouth.
    4. I think that Cheyenne is that type of person that will not give up. She kept on trying to find ways to get away from these men. “She felt the impact and then the cracks radiating out as the class split and broke.” That showed she was smart and tried to get something sharp so that she could get out of that place she is in by cutting the things that kept her tied up. “When I tell the police that, they’ll find you in a minute.” I think here at this part she is trying to get Griffin to let her go or she will call the police and tell them all the things these bad people are doing got her.

  33. 1) Naruto 21 by Masashi Kishimoto
    2) Today I Read from pg’s 148 to 201
    3) In this part of the story the fat ninja named Choji performed his special attack which is the Super Expansion. He bloated into the sizes of a hot air balloon and attempted to squish one of the Sound Four. But as a counter to this, the guy from the Sound four entered his “Second State” which made him 10x as powerful and he was actually able to lift Chuji who was currently weighed about 20,000 pounds. In the end Naruto hit the Sound Four guy with a Rasengan which is a ball of ninja energy and the Sound Four man died.
    4) Naruto is an energetic and determined spirit. His dream is to be Hokage or leader of his entire village. He is also determined to make Sakura like him.

  34. 1. Scrawl By mark Shulman
    2. I read from pages 30 to 50
    3. what am reading so far in my book called Scrawl is that Tod is that he is really frustrated because his friend is really interested in reading and want to read a goodnight story for Tod. In addition it say “Are you still on about that? Forget it. It’s too dark to read anyway.” However they start to discuss where is Thailand.
    4. Tod is really reluctant to hear story like his friend was saying. ” Even if it is dark i could still read just find in the dark.” Also his friend do everything he could just to read that story for Tod. ” I’ll keep light my shiny silver lighter.”

  35. 1.The Report Card by Andrew Clements
    2.I read from pages 63 to 91.
    3.A retell of what I read today was that the main character name Nora was expressing her feelings towards how she like Mrs.Byrne as her favorite teacher from the school. In addition, Nora said “And in my opinion, Mrs.Byrne was one of the best people on the whole school. I had never seen her lose her temper, and she always seemed fair and open-minded.
    4.Nora’s personality is care free. For example,”My grades won’t matter so much, not like they do now for a lot of kids. Another quote that show Nora is carefree is “And even if I do get into trouble, I don’t care.”

  36. 1.Maximum Ride by James Patterson
    2. I read from page 1 to 50

When Peter comes, he isn’t looking forward to it because Anne is annoying. As they spend more time together in the annex, Peter starts to develop more feelings about Anne.
    4.Peter’s personality is that he is very shy and optamistic because he’s scared to share his true feelings. Also, he hopes the whole situation will end and he’s just as curious as Anne is.

    • 1 That was then,This is now. 2 78-134 today. 3 mark is the fear less one he’s all saying how bad ass he is( that in the book).Also I believe he has a soft side but is afraid to admit it because he believes that people won’t think he’s “bad ass”. But I believe it’s better to be you then put on a show that would get you in trouble. 4 His brother Bryton is the same way but people now has a soft side and that’s why people respect him over his brother. Also I keep this in my head mercy is only valuable to your enemy. He always shows mercy and always gets double crossed.
