What motivates the main character in your book? What does he/she want? What is he/she trying to accomplish? If your book is non-fiction, describe the most interesting thing you have learned.


Manuel Maldonado | 25 comments The main character in the book is motivated by his love and passion of the game of basketball. And he's trying to accomplish of breaking the scene by not just staying it in the ghetto but rather find a way through basketball.


Elizabeth Rodriguez | 27 comments Adoration Jenna Fox By: Mary E. Pearson

Jenna's motivation is her family in which she try's to remmber who she is and her life. She wants to get to know who she is and get back the memories she once had before her accident and coma. The more she can remmber the closer and better she can get to remmber her family, friends and herself.

What motivates the main character is adventure. He wants to become the best adventurer in the world and he really does need all the help he can get because he is a beginner.

Tiyanna  Dozier | 23 comments Hittin bricks/Noire

One of the things that motivates the main character is her mother. Her mother is addicted to drugs and has a very abusive boyfriend, and she doesn't want to turn out like her, so she moves to another city and tries to live a better life. The most interesting thing I have learned is that no matter how much you love someone, you cant trust them.


Brittney Hicks  | 23 comments Brotherly Love/Janine A. Morris
I think what motivates her the most is her family. She tries her best to keep her family together


Kassandra Ramirez (kassandraramirez) | 17 comments zoey just wants to figure out who is she and keep everything from falling apart

Mary Ann Munoz | 24 comments The main character of my book is motivated by her children. That is the only reason she stays with her husband that and because she cant leave the house with our him. Her ultimate goal is to leave her husband and her life in Kabul. My book is fiction but is based on events in Afghanistan. I learned that if a girl paints her fingernails over there she will get her finger cut off...under Taliban rule.


Armando Rodriguez | 11 comments from the Odyssey/Homer
The main character of my book is motivated by the want of being home with his family. He misses them and his homeland so much. Also, he wants to be a good leader and bring his men back home as well.

Michael  (michaelshort) | 20 comments How To Survive Your Freshman Year/Hundreds of Heads

My book is real suggestions by freshman and upperclassmen and women in college about what to expect and what is a good idea your first year in college.

one thing that I learned is to "don't go with something your good at, go with something you like"

Betsy Miranda | 22 comments A Thousand Splendid Suns/Kahled Hosseini
The main character is named Laila and what motivates her is her wealthy and loving father. Laila feels an urge to return to Kabul and contribute to the restoration effort. She's trying to accomplish her goal of education, and making it through her love struggle with Tariq. Something interesting that I've learned so far is that, to get somewhere in life and to accomplish our dreams first we must go through hardships and struggles.

In the book she really talks about what motivates her son the whole way, and how shes really proud of him. The book is a true story on kanye west from his mother. Kanye is just trying to be succesful and become a rapper (a very hard hard task).

Marcus Wimbley | 27 comments Art of War/Sun Tzu
There is really is no motivation in my book. The book is non-fiction and it mostly talks about tactical strategies in war and peace. The most interesting thing I learned in the book is that after 2,500 years the book is still being used

Kiley Douyon (kdouyon09) | 23 comments The Hot Zone: A Terrifying True Story By: Richard Preston

There is really no main character really. But the motivation of all the main people in the book is to eradicate this horrible disease. They would like to figure out what is the root cause and how the disease spreads. My book is non-fiction. the most interesting thing that I learned the diseases causes hemorrhages, and it tries to turn you body into the virus itself.
