Rachel | 4 comments I read Out of My Mind this weekend. In the beginning of the book Melody loves words. But she can't speak them. What i am picking up as i go on in the story is that she as a issue with her body. She can't talk and she is in a weel chair. The part that i thought was important was when she was getting tested for school if she can apply. Melody tries to tell her parents what is wrong with her. She is a smart girl but very inscure.

Matthew | 3 comments I read Epic this weekend. Epic is a book about a video game that you build your own character and fight inside them. Over the weekend I read about the main character, Erik watching one of his friends character die. Once you die you can't come back to life. This is sort of like real life. I also read about how Erik found out his father's character was still alive. This meant that Erik and his dad could still challenge the Central Allocations to a battle.

Anna W | 3 comments This weekend I continued to read the book "The Dead and The Gone" by: Susan Beth Pfeffer. In the part that I read this weekend Alex goes to one of his friend's dad's work and talks to him about his family having trouble. Since his parents are gone and his sister is sick, this man gives him 3 passes to a place that has food, clean air, and is a perfect and private place for them to go.

This weekend, I read Gone by Michael Grant. What I read about was all the adults had disappeared, and the teens and animals began mutating. For example, Sam, the main character has the power to shoot fire out of his hands. Another girl, Lana, has the power to heal any kind of injury. Animals, such as rattlesnakes are growing wings and can fly. Coyotes can talk and are much smarter. Who knows what will happen next!

Tara | 3 comments This weekend I read the book This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer. This weekend I experienced an important moment in my book when the family all 10 people had a great amount of food which is new for them because there always relying on food deliveries or fishing for shad but they went house hunting and were a success with a bunch of supplies and food. This was a good sign that they had an amount of food that everyone could have a little bit at each time therefore, it would last for a long time. Another important moment of this book, the most important in my opinion is when Alex and Julie must leave for the whole family to have more food and therefore Julie can be safe and somewhere Alex knows where to find her. Tales wanted to become a monk at a monastery. The only reason why they were leaving was because when they went to Texas to visit their brother who is in the marines (Carlos) who said Julie would be safe at a convent. Miranda and Alex shared a kiss which made things even more difficult. Eventually Miranda admitted to herself that she didn't want Alex and Julie to leave and tried to stop him but Alex was focused only on his plan. Even when they were talking to each other he said it wasn't a good idea for them to think of them more than friends. Now they are on the road for Julie to be safe or so they think.

Kacie This weekend I read the book The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I read about how Peeta and Katniss had to watch Cato die slowly from the mutts that attacked him and then finally had to kill him themselves, they also found out why the gamemakers brought them together, so they would have to kill eachother, so they made the gamemakers and capitol look bad by almost committing a double suicide. Thats when they realized the real danger of the hunger games had just begun. They kept their love act going for the sake of their safety but when Haymitch told Petta that Katniss was just doing the act for the games he felt so mad and confused, because he did love her and thought that she wasn't just acting for the crowd while Katniss thought he was acting. When they get off the train the have to put on the love act again. I wonder what will happen when they get back to district 12?

Sofia | 7 comments This weekend I read a very intense part of my book. If I had not read this part of the book i would not have been able to understand the entire story.
In this part of the book Ingrid betrays her whole family, but only one person in her whole family knows. Dom! He is is threatening to tell the whole family if Ingrid doesn't do what he says. Here's what happens.
When Brianne, one of her cousins, brings her boyfriend Trevor to the annual family New Years Eve party. Ingrid develops a crush on Trevor and Trevor begins to like her too. So one day while Ingrid is walking up the white, ugly steps into the house someone stops her. And guess who it is? The one and only Trevor. Before either of them could realize what was going on, they're leaning into each other and kissing. Ingrid isn't thinking about how this is Brianne's boyfriend. She's betraying her own cousin! Before they have enough time to pull away so nobody can see, Dom, Ingrid's second cousin, walks up those same exact white steps and sees them. What will Dom do with this power? Will he abuse it or take advantage of her?
I think that Dom will not do anything with this secret because Ingrid has a secret about him too.
