It is written in third person, the narrator is not in the story but he knows what everyone is thinking. This book is about kids that are sent to a school because of their expanding fears. It takes place in current time. The setting effects the story because if anyone gets hurt it could be days until help comes. It is a small town with only one street. The descriptions of the characters are Lulu: She is skinny with blond hair, Garrison is also skinny with long blond hair, Hyacinth is a small girl with brown pigtails, Madeline is skinny and brown hair and lastly Theo is Chubby with short brown hair. They are all mostly the same except for the level of their fears. they are silly and good liars. All of the kids are the protagonist, The antagonist is Munchauser the yellow nailed lawyer. All of the characters are the main characters. The kids come back for their second year at school of fear and there is a criminal challenging the head Mistress to a pageant. In the end the3 kids finish their second to last year at school of fear. The theme of this book is it is okay to be scared. It shows this because the children are still not cured from their fears and they are fine with it. I enjoyed this book a lot the most compelling literary element was the characters because of their extraordinary fears and their personality’s. I would recommend this book to 4 5 and 6th graders.

The Genre of this book is realistic fiction because most of this could actually happen in real life.

The compelling literary element was the characters, who wouldn't be interested in a outlaw or a kids no-good-pig-stealing-great-great-great-grandfather that is why the characters were the compelling literary element. it was compelling because you can tell the author took a long time thinking about the characters also they are funny at some parts and serious and just plain cool lastly the description of them is just amazing

The parts that I found interesting: 1. When Zero hit Mr. Pendanski 2. When Stanley carried Zero up gods thumb 3. When stanley feels a pinch on his neck(I thought the lizard bit him and I was scared)
Questions or things I would like to discuss 1. Is there a second book or sequel? 2. Was the lady stroking zero's hair his mother? 3. If Gaffy was imaginary couldn't Zero just call it to come back? 4. Where was Zero's mom found? 5. Was Zero's mom looking for him?
Relate to books or the world 1. Call it courage because there is a part that Stanley has a lot of courage when h carries Zero up God's thumb. 2. Man vs. wild survival in hot climates and fighting for your life. 3. jail they are trying to correct you of what you did in your past. (less)

District twelve was bombed in an attempt to kill Katniss for starting a revolution against the capitol. district thirteen was never destroyed it went into hiding underground after it was bombed so katniss and her family are taking refuge there. Katniss goes to an army base in District two called the nut, while giving a speach to try to get 2 into revolutioning against the capitol she is shot she survives though. in the end of the book thirteen is attacked again and everyone is in bunkers when the bombing is over katniss records something that is streamed through to the capitol she is saying she is still alive and the revolution against the capitol has not ended.
The compelling literary element was the plot it is just so thrilling and exiting because of the plot. It was important because if it weren't for the plot no one would understand the story. also the plot is like magnet for young and old people who wouldn't like action and fighting morphed into one book.
the parts that I found of particular interest where: 1. When Katniss gets shot because you don't know if she will survive. 2. When katniss finds out that Peeta is alive but he has been brainwashed and hates her because you don't know if he will kill her or change or get his memory back 3. When 13 gets bombed and the light go out because you don't know if the bunker will collapse.
Some questions I had throughout this book were: 1. Will Peeta ever get his memory back? 2. Will Katniss survive her bullet wound? 3. Does Peeta really hate katniss or is he faking? 4. Will 12 ever be restored or built again or will it be gone forever? 5. Will Peeta have to be killed so he won't be a danger to Katniss??
I can relate this book to: 1. The revolution in Egypt because of one person it is the same thing in Mockingjay she is the one person that started revolution against the capitol. 2. A sponge because it starts small and as you put it in water it gets bigger and bigger because the book starts off boring and then like a sponge it sucks in water and gets bigger and bigger and by the end of the book the sponge can't hold in any more water. 3. Catching fire (Hunger games series #2) because it is the same plot and you get a hint of the revolution in catching fire. (less)
