This is the summary of the book in a picture
Our teacher gave us a assignment, we have to make a presentation and we picked IMovie. I am going to be working with a good friend, her name is Mullika
Today we got to skyped with a school and talk about GRA, we asked questions and answered there questions. I wanted to answer some of there questions almost every single one of theres, but I don't have the courage to go up there and do it. :( But besides that i had lots of fun!
The 3 questions I want answered in my Skype are:
1) How come Daniel hates Carley
2) Why is Mrs. Murphy trusting Carley so much?
3) what will Carley do when she is grounded
This book is very interesting at first I didn't really want to read this book then it got really interesting, I am going tell you what I have read so far. There is this 12 year old girl named Carley, and Carley didn't live in a safe environment, her mother drinks to much and Carley`s stepfather abused Carley. Carley moved to a foster home which she hates, and Mrs. Murphy (Carley lives with now) is so kind she is like a super mom, she has three kids and her husband is a fireman, Carley is kind of scared of Mr. Murphy, but she has to get used to him. Carley figures out that Daniel hates Carley, and yes, I mean HATE, Daniel is the oldest out of the boys. Carley decides to run away, because she doesn't like where she lives, when she was running she had a flashback when she was with her parents and was abused, when I read that chapter my heart sank! Then Mrs. Murphy found Carley and took her home and Carley was wondering why she cared about her, Mrs. Murphy had a long talk to Carley and made her feel better. That's what happened to far.
This chapter is really rushing, it got me siting on the edge of my chair! The chapter started with Carley running out of the house, my first thought was she is finally running away, and she is . While she is running she has NO SHOES ON! Like that must hurt if you step on a small sharp rock, and trust me it hurts. While she was reading she started to feel pain and fell slowly, she had a flashback, everything came back to her when she was with her mom and Dennis, dennis is Carley`s moms new husband. In her flashback she was at home dribbling her basketball in the house and her mom came in smelling like vodka, Carley`s mom hates it when she dribbles her basketball around the house, so he yelled at her and tried to get the ball and Carley moved out of her way and her mother fell on the ground and held her leg, then her dennis came in the door and we said, "what did you do?!" Carley was like "I just moved out of the way." And Dennis started to get really angry and started to chase Carley, I was like "run carley run!" which is kind of funny, Carley started to slam Dennis by calling him and idiot and a loser, I like what are you doing you would only making it worse, and I was right he started to say "when I catch you you`ll be sorry", then I started to think what if he catches her? Is he going to beat her or something?!? I cant believe this happened but... Carley`s mom called to her like she needs her help or something, so carley backs up and then she feels something clamp onto her ankle. Carley`s mom grabbed her ankle then said, " I got her ankle get her!' I sear mom heart just sank to the ground I cant believe her mother would do that! And that's where the chapter ended, like why would somebody end the chapter like that! So I hope you like my chapter 7 review, sorry this is long. Have a good day!
