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.

Katy Pennington | 26 comments The girl that he is falling for motivates him to do better.
The incident that happened in Hawaii made him want to better himself, and quit doing drugs. He wants to follow in his fathers footsteps and go to UCLA

And being treated like she some kinda "Alien" or infection. And right now she's just trying to survive because now her and her family and friends are in hiding from being taking and possibly being killed.

message 17: by Shelby Carroll (new)

Shelby Carroll | 29 comments Max's motivation is freedom, she wishes for the "Flock" to be free without the worry of being caught or killed. She tries to accomplish many things such as finding the groups original parents because they all have/had biological parents. My book is fiction so there is a lot of unrealistic things but a thing i have learned is that if you love someone or multiple people you'll probably do anything to help them in any way you can.
