Summer of secrets

The book I read is called Summer of Secrets and it's by Paul Langan. The genre of this book is realistic fiction. This book is about a girl named Darcy Wills. Darcy is going through a lot right now. She has a secret she keeping from her friends and  her secret is very serious but she doesn't know how to tell her friends, her  grandma died, her ex boyfriend moved to Detroit and she misses him.  At home Darcy's parents are having their own problems and don't seem to notice Darcy and hers. Later on Darcy's  friend has a problem and Darcy has to help her. One reason I like this book was because someone who's going through the same thing Darcy is can read this book and they can get help. You should read this book to find out what is the secret Darcy is keeping from her friends. Do you think you would like this book?

The book I read is called Blood is thicker and it's by Paul Langam and D.M Blackwell. The genre of this book is realistic fiction. This book is about a boy named Hakeem. Him and his family have to move away from his childhood home to go live with his dad's brother in Detroit because Hakeem's dad has kidney cancer and Hakeem's parents don't gave enough money to keep the house and plus his  dad is weak and can't work. While they live in Detroit Hakeem has to share a room with his cousin Savon. Hakeem and Savon use to be close when they were younger now all they do is argue. Something happens between them that would change their relationship. One reason I like this book is because it shows you how family is everything.

Butterfly Project

Title- To Olga
By-Alena Synková

Listen!
The boat whistle has sounded now
And we must sail
Out toward and unknown port.

We'll sail a long, long way
And dreams will turn to truth.
Oh, how sweet the name of Morocco!( country in Africa)
Listen!
Now it's time.

The wind sings songs of far away,
Just look up to heaven
And think about the violets.

Listen!
Now it's time.

This text makes me feel better because even though the child was in the camp living a life they didn't want to live they still kept a positive attitude once they left.

4th quarter

I still can't believe that it is already the 4th quarter. The school year is going by quick. Next thing you know it's going to be June and we're going to be graduating. I wanna do my absolute best for the last quarter even though you are suppose to to do your best for the whole school year. I want to finish the school year off strong. I'm good in all my classes but I want to improve more in math. In math class we set goals that we want to happen for the 4th quarter and we had to to say how were we going to achieve those goals. My goals were to improve in math by making sure I understand and ask for extra help. Get my 100 points by doing my work and turning it in on time and coming to school. Another goal was to graduate and making sure I do what I have to do to make that happen. What are some of your goals for the end of the school year?

SOL#31- Last day

Well today is the last day for the slice of life challenge. It's been fun and challenging. I want to try next year. I still can't believe that I did 31 days of this challenge. This challenge went by quick kinda. This challenge taught me something. I ran out of ideas towards the end. I honestly still don't know what to write about but hey I'm still writing though so it still counts. I'm writing this post before the 31st so I could get it out the way. Smart right? Well how was your experience with this challenge?

SOL#30-ideas

I'm kinda running out of ideas for the slice of life challenge so this blog might be kinda boring. I'm kinda excited that it's over because at first I thought I couldn't do it but I can do whatever I put my mind to. This is my first time doing a challenge like this. Me and my friend Marisol were asking each other about ideas and we couldn't come up with much. Even though I'm running out of ideas I'm still going to write for the challenge.  If you're doing the slice of life challenge do you have some ideas for me?
