Ready Player One

By Ernest Cline 

1. In the book Ready Player One they are talking in 1st person because it doesn't say Wade beat level one and said I did it. 

2. In the book Wades' mood stays the same because he is calm and happy because he is a good gamer that can do stuff that other people can't do.

3. The author feels good about writing the book at the end there is a page about him saying stuff about the book and the people who helped him make the story come alive into a book.

In my book The American Sniper it's about a guy named Chris Kyle who is a sniper in the navy in the end he is sent to war against terrorist. It's kinda like the US vs isis because in the book there are suicide bombers that are hidden and the seals kill the terrorist and win the war. Like what the USA is gonna do when we get our hands on isis. In the American Sniper it's actually based off Chris Kyle experience and training with the navy and he was not one of the thousands that gave up on a couple of days. Which is like some people that are trying to be in the navy right now.

Illustration 1

The picture is describing that Eric has to either be a navy seal or not because in the navy seals you have to lay in water for 2 Days straight. It also is showing that people gave up so they are just waiting there chilling in case people give up.

The Warriors Heart

"You know the statistics: Maybe one in ten will make it through this week, will survive hours- days - of the punishment required to be a Navy SEAL." Pg 1

I choose this passage because the it says how the training is in to be a navy seal. It shows how strong you are to take the punishment. It also says that only the strong ones will make it because of all of the  punishment and it last for a week. Also one in ten people will make it into the navy seals because they can't take the training. This is a good passage because it involves that how hard it is to be a seal and involves of the fraction of how many people will make it which 1/10.

Why did Shane quit baseball?
I wonder why did Shane's dad commit suicide?
I still wonder why Shane doesn't feel anything for when he hit Reese in the head with the baseball?
I wonder why did the author choose to write books off of sports instead of books like the outsiders?
How come when Shane knows he is being watched for a scholarship to college he screwed up on pitching but when he is not being watched he is all good?
