This is a picture of my group reading our book, A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin.
This is one of my favorite scenes in the book. It is when Adam is at the carnival for the first time with Hattie and Leila. He is awestruck by the magical Ferris wheel lit up in the night. He says it is magic. I like this scene because when I read it, I could picture the scene in my mind. I felt like I was Hattie and watching the carnival light up in the night.
I sat at the lunch table staring at my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I was too tired to eat anything.
Alison looked at me and said,”Kendall, why aren’t you eating?”
I replied,”The day has me in a sour mood.”
I gazed at the gray sky just outside the doors. I heard a clap of thunder that sounded just like the cackle of a hyena. A dark and somber feeling started to climb up my body and settled in my brain. A headache just made this day even more horrible. Just what I needed on this miserable day.
