In my first book “The House Of Hades”, there is this character named Nico, who is the son of the Greek god Hades. He had lots of things that effected him in his life, such as when his sister, Bianca, passed away. Now he always hides in the shadows. What I take away from that is that you have to stop hiding in the shadows and forget about your past.
Also in the book, These 7 kids have to work together to stop Gaea, the Earth Mother. What I’m wondering is that is it easy to work as a team all the time, or can there be a few bumps in the road?
The Nazis wanted to kill all the Jews because the Nazis only wanted pure German to rule the world. The Jews were trying to hide from the Nazis by making bunkers.
In the book a survivor’s tale Andy had to go through concentration camps, getting beat up on the street’s, and the Nazis were asking the Jews for their papers. I don’t have to go through what the Nazis did to Andy because the Nazis don’t have the power today.
In my first book, "Lost in the Pacific, 1942" a B-17 bomber is flying high above the Pacific Ocean but when the fuel runs low the only choice left is to have a emergency landing at sea. Now in the sixty-eight million square miles of the Pacific Ocean the eight men are suffering from dehydration and starvation on the three inflatable rafts. This nonfiction book has taught me to work as a team not as a individual when times are tough because a community of people gets you further in life.
The Pilot of the mission (Captain Bill Cherry) caused me to question if the B-17 bomber was inspected before the crew took off from Hawaii. If it was inspected wouldn't the mission go as planed with the navigation tools and fuel?
In my first book "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins a young woman named Katniss Everdeen has to make decisions that could have many consequences, both good and bad. However, with an entire country essentially bowing at her feet, with love and hatred some of them can lead to much bigger things. The theme of always look out for every visible consequence in life taught me to really stop and think about my actions.
Also, another character, Peeta Mellark, has multiple sides to him. In "The Hunger Games" he was portrayed as self-absorbed and smug. However, in that book, and "Catching Fire" he proved not to be self-absorbed, but very unselfish, caring about Katniss and her needs. He is a two-sided character, which makes me question if there are people in this world who could be the same. Or possibly the opposite?
In my first book, Sophie's World, written by Jostein Gaarder, the main character Sophie's life changes. Her life changes after a man named Alberto Knox teaches her about famous philosophers, the history of philosophy, and history of the world itself. What I took away from the book is that the philosophers' explanations on the world and philosophy are the reasons why things are the way they are today.
The information that Alberto Knox gave Sophie allowed me to question and expand my knowledge on what we think are simple things in life. For instance, an animal may look uncomplicated and straightforward on the outside, but in reality, there is a lot more complexity and elements that we don't consider.
My first book is called Gregor the Overlander. It is a good fantasy book with lots of action and suspense.
Gregor is a 12 year old boy who got sucked into a strange and new world for him. This new world is miles underground and is filled with big cockroaches, rats, bats, and many other giant-sized creatures.
This book changes the way I see the world because it makes me think of all of the dangers in the world, big or small.
Gregor makes me grateful for what I have because he comes a relatively poor family and normally worries about money.
