TRUE (... sort of) by Katherine Hannigan

Sally from Cover to Cover Bookstore gave my mom this book called TRUE (... sort of) by Katherine Hannigan. What first got my attention was the cover. On the cover there's the leaves of a tree and a bird house and a yellow and red bird that looks like someone drew it. The book said its for kids 8-12 and grades 3-7. I myself don't think kids 8-9 should read this book. The book has some parts that made me cry and scared me. The book's not that scary, it's just kinda sad in the end. The book's not out yet but when it comes out I think a lot of people would like it. The book really touches your heart. The book will be out in stores on May 2011. The author who wrote Ida B wrote this book too. There are 368 pages but the font is not that small. This is now one of my favorite books! I think anyone in the mood for a heart touching book will love TRUE (... sort of).

She loves animals but                          A girl
She doesn't  speak                               So sweet till she turned 6
You can't touch her                              She never smiled
She doesn't like loud noise                  She didn't use words
Her eyes are filled of sadness              She used her fist's
What happened to her?                       She was trouble
She's just a kid                                      She had no more friends
Her name is Ferris                              People always gave up on her
FERRIS BOYD                                 She was a small little girl
She was in trouble                              People picked on her
                                                           This girl's name was Delly
                                                           DELLY PATTISON
                                                           She was trouble

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day
 I know that it's not Valentine's Day yet but I thought I would show you my Valentine's box now. I worked  really hard on it. It's for my class. In my class we are having a Valentine's Day party. We are either allowed to make a box or we could just use a bag. I made a box. My mom and dad let me buy about 12 piece of paper. It took me about the whole day. I also made a video. The video took 1 hour and a half to make. I made the movie with iMovie. Me and my dad sped up the movie to make it quicker. The movie is 12 minuets but before I speed the movie up it was 3 hours. I hope you like it.  My mom showed me a sped up video and it looked really cool.  I wanted to make one like it.  Here is the one I saw -

FLIPPED is one of my favorite books in the world. I just finished FLIPPED about 2 weeks ago. I think that any one in the mood to read a boy and girl love story should read this book. The book is good if you want a book that has good characters. The book shows the boys side of the story and the girls side. This is a different kinda book. I have written a response about the book. I wrote the response as a poem.


one day can be so normal
but before you know it 
every thing can be flipped
you may like someone 
but never look farther then their 
two faced cute smile and gleaming eyes
he may think you're weird 
you may scare him 
and not even know it
but then this is where it all changes
every thing you knew 
and how does this happen
life just changes

Hey everyone I was bored yesterday so I wrote this poem. My class is reading Out of My Mind. I really liked the book so I wrote a poem about it. Out of My Mind is a reread for me. We also watched a video that was really cool. The poem is down below. I hope you like it.

out of my mind
a word may seem so ordinary
every step you take is as easy as breathing
each movement moves so easily
well, not for me
a word is a gift
a step can be so special
a movement can be so hard
i unlike other people have a boundary
i can only move if you move me
i have never said a word
each movement takes so much work
for what 
a stupid looking movement 
that looks like nothing
all my life all i see is pointing
staring laughing
you think i cant hear
but i can
i too have feelings 
don’t just focus on what i look like
get to know me
i’m normal girl
just like you
