Sample response from Ms. Bounds:

GENERATION DEAD by Daniel Waters

PREDICT: How do you think things will turn out?

I believe that even though Adam likes Phoebe, that Phoebe will never see him as anything more than a friend. On page 40, when Adam tells Phoebe that he told Holly that he was friends with Phoebe, Phoebe says, "Won't they revoke your charter membership of the cool kids club?" She says it jokingly rather than falling all over him in a swoon, which I think she would have done if she saw him as anything more.

VISUALIZE: What kind of phrases bring vivid images to your mind? What kind of senses does the writing appeal to?

On page one, it says, "Phoebe risked a glance back at the girl and her long, buish-white legs. Fluroescent lights were kind to the dead, making them look like they had been carved from veinless blocks of pure white marble." That image really comes to life in my mind even though it is describing a "living impaired" character. The phrases appeal to sight, but also to feel. A block of marble usually feels cold and hard. It is almost like this girl is a moving statue.

VISUALIZE: What are some of your favorite prhases from the book? Why do you like these phrases so much?

Some of my favorite lines from GENERATION DEAD are on page 47. It says, "Killian Killgore of the Creeps was singing in her ears about being lost on the moors and chased by a banshee. Phoebe tapped on her notebook with her silver pen, the remaining lines of her poem floating somewhere in the air between her and the field, waiting for her to catch them and write them down." I like these lines because the first part about the music she is listening to gives it a haunted sort of feeling. I also like these phrases because it makes me think of what it is like to be a writer. I like to think that the words are out there flying around with a life of their own before they get to me.

Joshua | 3 comments KEEPER by:Mal Peet
Predict: what do you think will happen next?

i think El Gato thinks he is'nt a good goalkeeper his ghost friend "keeper" will help him become a better goalkeeper.on page 50,it read "he was teaching me things,skills,of course.but he was doing something else as well. he was showing me what weakness and fear were." i think he is also teaching him the simple differences in life which will probably lead to great things in his future as a young boy.

Visualize: What phrases bring vivid images to your mind? what kind of senses does the writer bring to your mind?

on page 63 and 64, El Gato stepped in a meadow with his ghost friend and worked on using all your muscles when you dive to stop a ball so that your less vulnorable to get injured.In my mind the senses touch and sight come to mind because he uses his sight to know which direction to dive in. He uses touch because when he catches the ball and throws it back out.

Visualize: What are some of your favorite phrases from the book? Why do you like these phrases so much?

[on pages 65-66,lines 12-6 on the next page.] the ghost keeper brings a jaguar to El Gato's training to show that there is nothiung to fear.i like this one because i back off instead of fighting for the ball and being aggressive.[on page 53, lines 16-19] the ghost keeper worked on penalty kicks over and over again till he finaly beat him.i like this phrase too because it shows percision, it shows he never gave up then he finaly beat the ghost keeper.these phrases teach me percision and that usualy reflects on me in games.

Gabriela | 4 comments STARGIRL by JERRY SPINELLI

PREDICT:Who do you think will happen next?
I think that Leo and Stargirl are going to end up meeting eye to eye and fall in love. This is because I think that Leo likes Stargirl so one day when Stargirl is singing to Leo like she did that one day on Hillari's birthday, she is going to see that she really likes him."She stopped and she sang "Happy Birthday." It was Hillari's name at the end of the song, but true to her word of the day before, she did not sing to Hillari-she sang it to me. She stood at

VISUALIZE:What phrases bring vivid images to your mind? What kind of senses does the writer appeal to?
Some of the weirdest lines that are in Stargirl are on page 4 when they are describing Stargirl. It says," She wore an off-white dress so long it covered her shoes. It had ruffles around the neck and cuffs and look like it could have been her great-grandmother's wedding gown." This quote makes a vivd image of a pilgrim in a dress and its really weid to think someone would wear that in modern days.

VISUALIZE: What are some of your favorite phrases from the book? Why do you like these phrases?
One of my favorite phrases from the book is n page 15 it says, "She had no friends, yet she was the friendliest person in school." This quote is one of my favorites because it just goes to show you that she didn't need friends and all she needed was her family ,and I think if I were to have no friends I would be the same way. Another favorite quote of mine is on page 5 it says, "The girl was picking up her ukulele. And now she was strumming it. And now she was singing!". I like this quote because Stargirl just bursts out singing out of no where ,and I like to do that too. And the students act like they have never heard singing before and react like WHAT THE HECK?, so I think thats funny.

Yesenia | 4 comments LAST SHOT by John Felinstein

Predict:How will the story end?
I believe that story will end by Steven and Susan find out why the coach told the best point guard for MSU. I also think that Steven will like Susan more, and possibly ask Susan out. I think their weekend will get even more crazy!

Visualize: What phrases bring vivid images to your mind?

On page 41 "Ninety-three, Stevie and Susan Carol said together. They both laughed. Damn,Stevie thought, she's really kind of pretty. He wasn't pleased with himself for thinking that". I like this phrase because it shows that Stevie has feelings for this girl that he just met,but Susan is the HUGE Duke fan. Stevie can't stand Duke.

What are some of your favorite phrases from the book?

Some of my favorite lines from LAST SHOT are on page 13 and 14. On page 13 it says "She had one of those Southern accents that stretched words out." "Palestra," "in her accent, became Paa-lea-sta-ra." I really like this phrase because, you tell she is a real southern girl.

Taylor | 4 comments A GRAET AND TERRIBLE BEAUTY by Libba Bray

PREDICT: What do you think will happen next?

I think as the story goes on Gemma and Felicity are going to become good friends. I think Gemma is eventually going to tell Felicity about her visions and whats going on in her life. On page 116, "She is so good I could swear she almost beleives it herself. Now I know that she's never confessed about her Gypsy beau to Pippa, her closest friend. Felicity and I have a secret,one she's not sharing with anyone else." The two have a secret between each ther that nobody else knows. From now on think they are going to be alot nicer to each other and are going to become close friends.

VISULIZE: Find 2 or more phrases that describe something in your book and write them down. What are these phrases describing?

Page 90, "When I ake, it's an actual bright blue morning with real sun streaming through
the window. making windowpane patterns on the floor. Everything outside is golden." This describes, in great detail, what she see's in the morning when she wakes up. She see's
the beautiful sunrise. She see's this after she has been locked in the church over night by
Felicity and her clique. After she has been told not to have anymore visions by Kartik.

Page 111, "Dreams come. Running barefoot over forest floor in the night fog, my breath coming out in short white wisps. It's a deer I'm chasing , it's milky brown flesh pecking through trees like the taunts of a will-o'-the-wisp. But I'm getting closer. My legs picking up speed I'm nearly flying, hands reaching out for the deer's flank. Fingers graze the fur and it's no longer a deer but my mothers blue dress." She tells you in full description about her dream. How she runs as fast as she can to catch the deer. Then suddenly the deer turns into her mother who she misses dearly. She feels as if she is flying through the air, high in the sky, then when finally touches the deer it turns into her mother.

VISULIZE: What are some of your favorite phrases from the book? Why do you like these phrases so much?

Page 93, "As I'm late, I manage to avoid Felicity, Pippa, and the others. Unfortunately, it means I cannot also avoid the lukewarm eggs and porridge congeal, which are every bit as bad as Ann predicted and then some. The porridge congeals on my spoon in cold, thick clumps. Told you so, Ann said." I like this quote because she is running late then she gets to avoid her enemies but she can't avoid the food. She wishes she could be sitting there eating a good breakfast but it's not instead she is eating clumpy oatmeal.

Anther one of my favorite quotes is on page 57, "when dinner is finished, we are allowed a free period in the great hall. This is the time we are given at ease- to read, laugh, socialize, or just sit about. The great hall is just that that- enormous. A massive fireplace commands the center of one wall. Six beautifully engraved marble columns form a circle in the middle of the room." I really like this quote because she really tells you about the fireplace area. I picture it being a really pretty fireplace area. The time when they can do whatever they want. I would love to visit this area in real life.

Michelle | 3 comments BEASTLY by: Alex Flinn

Predict: What do you think will happen next?

I think that Kyle will turn back to human, or if he doesn't he will stay in his room until he figures out a plan. He might turn back to human because he usually get's what he want and a surgeon can help him due to his father being really rich. He will probably stay into a beast because the witch was very serious and told him, " Two petals, two years to find someone willing to look behind your hideousness and see some good in you, something to love. If you will love her in return and if you will kiss you to prove it, the spell will be lifted, and you will be your handsome self again. If not you will a beast forever." (on page 49)

Visualize: Find 2 or more phrases that describe something in your book and write them down. What are these phrases describing?
Phrase 1:
" I am allowing the world to see you as you truly are," Kendra said." A beast" This phrase is describing karma. "Treat others as you want to be treated." He was never really nice to anyone besides friends, he would be rude and would critize. He got karma and know he is a beast due to his terrible actions.( Page 47)
Phrase 2:
" What's going on here? "
" I told you. Comeuppance. You will know what it is like to be ugly on the outside as on the inside. If you learn your lesson well, you may be able to undo my spell. If not, you will live with your punishment forever."
This phrase is describing comeuppance. Comeuppance- usually unpleasant. He is getting punished for all of his wickedness behavior.( Page 37)

What are some of your favorite phrases from the book?

Phrase 1:
"Then you'd better hope you never get ugly, Kyle. You are ugly now, on the inside, where it matters most, and if you eve lost your good looks, I bet you wouldn't be smart or strong enough to get back. Kyle Kingsbury, you are beastly."(Page 6) I like this phrase so much because it is vivid it has really good diction. It explains why he is a beast, and its a play on words.

Phrase 2:
" So you are actually doing this then?" she said. " You really did invite me to a dance even though you had another date, just to make me look stupid? "
" You actually thought someone like me would take someone like you to a dance? "
" No, i didn't. But i hoped you wouldn't make my decision so easy, Kyle."
" What decision?"
"...... You'll see."
I like this phrase because it is describing how this girl isn't really like any other person, it's showing ( diction) how something WILL happen to Kyle, and it's very intense.(Page 31)

Danny | 3 comments The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
Predict: What do you think will happen next?
I think that throughout the book Papa will get accepted into the Nazi party. If he does get into the party I don't think he will be happy because something about him tells me that he isnt a full Nazi fan. On page 104 Hans Junior told Papa," So have they let you in?" Hans Junior is refering to the Nazi party that Papa had sent an application towards, but has not yet gotten a response.

Visualize: What phrases bring vivid images to your mind?
In the middle of the night Liesel told Papa that she wanted to continue reading a book they had started. On page 86 it said," There was a long breath, the scratchery of hand on whiskers, and then the light. He opened the book and began." This shows how tired Papa was and it showed the sense of hearing to me because you could probably hear the scaratching of his whiskers and the light being turned on.

Visualize: What are some of your favorite phrases from the book?
My favorite line would have to be on page 32 were Mama said," Saumensch, du dreckiges!" What Mama said was that Liesel was a filthy pig and why wouldn't she get undress. That i thought was really funny and mean at the same time. Really Liesel has only been living there for like two days and the mom would think that she knows her enough to call her a pig is a little crazy to me, but what i find humerous about it is that she has the courage to do that and that shows you what kind of person Mama is.

"My parents were planing to take me to the circus to celabrate my 11th birthday.But I got sick and the outing had to be called off.That day a terablale fire broke out in the ringling circus tent.And a hundred and sixty-eight people died in The blaze."

PERDICT:How Do You Think Things will Trun Out?

I Think That The Girl In The Book Will Sooner Or Later Become Friends With Some Kids In The School. On Page 42 The Girl Says "For Real, i want to reply. But Then I Remember:I'm Not One Of Them.

Rockers And Skaters are subsets of this group, and they overlap like Venn diagrams For Portland; Shaggy-haired Skaters were the dominant breed there, buts it's obviously diffrent in Austin. Here they seem to be skinnier, squirrelier stock and they, aren't surrounded by gaggle of admiring girls." Here she is describing how the skaters are diffrent from the one in portland. "Sitting A Couple of picnic tables on the front lawn are the Brains. Or Nerds,Honor Roll Dweebs, Debate Club Dorks, or Goobers. Judging by all the big black instrument cases, I'd say most ofthem take band, which is typical. At other schools I've learned that almost all superbarin students take band or orchestra, but not all band or orchestra Students are superbrains. Band As phylum, Brains as genus."

PREDICT- What do you think will happen next?
I think that John is going to ask Glory Halleluagh out to the Basketball game. I think this because John got all nervous when Billy Beezer said that he would ask Glory Halleluagh to the basketball game. Page 41 states "' I am going to ask Gloria,' Billy Beezer announces. 'You will never have the guts to ask her to the dance.' I think John will feel pressure and rush to ask her.

"Meanwhile, the frog in my arms has awakened. He lets loose with a sound that has never appeared in the Western musical cannon. In fact, it sounds like something has been shot out of a cannon." That statement on page 21 is describing the sound that came out of John's tuba during a band rehearsal. Another good phrase is on the same page "They sound like a car crash. I can hear fenders collide and iron rip." This is describing Andy Pearce's drum in band class.

I like the phrase on page 39: "It is the sound of a ravenous polar bear in a penguin sanctuary." I like that phrase because when I read it, I can hear it in my head and visualize it in my mind. On page 9, there is this really funny sentence: "Next to me is Billy Beezer, whose name is really Bill Beanman but who I have rechristened Beezer on account of his nose, which is three times longer than seems natural, and which I have nicknamed Beanman's Beezer." I like this phrase because it is funny and I can imagine it well.

I think that even though he dosent want to admit he likes her, hes at least attracted to her a little bit.

Question: Why are things happening this way?

I think that things are going this way because, it's needs to led up to the reason why the star point guard got blacked-mailed. On page 68, it says in the book " Stevie remebered that, even speaking in a hused tone, Graber's blackmailer had a deep baritone voice." In that sentence it's saying that Chip Graber blackmailer had a very deep voice. Even when he talked very quitely.

Clarify/summarize: Did you understand what you read? should you reread? What is something new you came across in the book that you had no experienced before as a reader?

I really didnt understand what I read. I'm going to reread it because I need to understand what I read, or I dont get it at all.

But the other reason is that i think he will save the human race so they have a second chance to undo there mistakes on planet earth.
