Guilty or Innocent

Personally I think Steve is guilty. He claims that he just went into the store to check it out but as he was in there the robbery just so happened. Steve kind of tells on him self sometimes also. Lying in the court room is a normal thing for Steve. He also states that when he was walking home he was trying to clear his mind. While Steve was being questioned in the court room he was caught lying under oath multiple times but tries to cover it up.

Monster vs. Me

21 years and 3 months from now...

March 15, 2031. In 2031 I will be thirty seven years old and living a nightmare. The world would be moving faster than I. People will be flying around in eco-friendly, personal jets while I'm standing in the clearing wondering what happened.

Is Steve cruel or cool?


Is Steve cruel or cool?
If he was cool he'd be in school. Steve
did achieve. Believe beloved Steve.
He Hurt Him. Steve Sacrificed safety.
Jail could indeed kill.
Damnably dead dreams.
Jump suits, junk suggestive escapes.
Pumpkin orange, poorly orated.
Steve's life is on the line.
Hopeless happiness!

The Runner By Carl Deuker

The Runner is a great reading experience. The life of Chance Taylor seems to be a very realistic life for a teenager. Deuker combines global concerns with worries of terrorism.
Chance and his father live on a miniature unhealthy boat called the "Tiny Dancer" which is in dyer need of help. Chance learns there's a lot more to patriotism than just waving a flag, and a lot more to courage than just following rules he knows may be wrong. Chance's newly discovered job is a smuggler type run. Chance applied to work on the Marina's restaurant but was never called back. As he continued his running route that he runs daily he realized a old man that seemed to be watching him. The man approached him and offered a $200 per week job just delivering "packages " to a certain spot repeatedly. Chance has no idea what to do but thinks that it would help his father in the financial difficulties they are having. Chance and his father live on a miniature unhealthy boat called the "Tiny Dancer" which is in dyer need of help.

Ghetto Life 101

Ghetto Life 101 was very dramatic. I learned many things. The first and probably most important was that not all people in the ghetto are bad people. LeAlan and Lloyd have heard and seen a lot. The other fact that supprised me the most was the fact that Lloyd and LeAlan not exactly witnessed it but knew the little boy (Eric Morse) that was dropped out of the fourteenth story window of a building. The Ghetto is a real life nightmare and it is terrifying.
