Chapter 14Whoa! Amy shearing a sheep, who would have guessed what she'd be doing in a place like Israel for a summer vacation! But when Avi and Amy start arguing... AGAIN it was just typical for them to do that. I guess the more you hate the more you love (I already knew that). Then it all changes, she starts a little fight, which shocked me that I get a piece of action in this chapter! But when she started to cry, I was all like, "No, Amy! Don't cry, you're supposed to be strong!!!" I got a piece of action in this chapter! This chapter is well entertaining.
Chapter14I think that in this chapter Amy was dared by O'snat to shave off the hair of the sheep which she did, and she prove too them that she could do it. In my opinion at least she had the guts to do that not like some people all they do is mouth talk but don't show actions. However I think that she always stands up for herself and whatever needs to be done she tries as much to do them. But what caught my attention was when Avi was asking her to go camping she told him that she had something else to do with Mitch.
Chapter 14I find it really funny to imagine Amy shearing the sheep. It’s not really her type but it’s hilarious. She’s trying her best to shear the sheep but Avi on the other side thinks he’s all that and giving her this look like he’s telling her “you’re on your own on this”. Geez! He could like help her at least and or do something. But later he actually helped her. So Avi and Amy start to argue again which leads Amy to go beyond arguing. She pushes him but he wouldn’t budge. It doesn’t come to mind that boys are stronger and that maybe he would push her back even ten times harder than that.
i think that she is shareing a sheep and to how it soundas like is wrong to shave a sheep shes starting to be kelpful.But what caught my attention was when Avi was asking her to go camping she told him that she had something else to do with Mitch.
Amy is doing pretty good as im reading. She’s enjoying her time a lot with the sheep herding. I believe all she would really want to hear right now is how proud her father is of her. When she finally got, I didn’t think she’s approve of it… but instead, it really meant something to her. Amy is beginning to love it there and probably wants more from her father as if she meant a whole lot more to him than what she hears from safta.I think she wants to see and hear for it herself. When the job of herding was done, I kind of felt bad for her when she just went off on her cousin snotty and avi; although they both deserve it for talking smack and all to her. Especially when snotty said those things to her, I was thinking maybe if she started on her words “smack” she’d probably go on until her last breath due to her firing head and burning mouth.
Its good that Amys shearing the sheep.and i think that Avi should just be nice to Amy cause she trying her best to be nice.and she would like to make friend with them for the summer.Avi is being nice to Amy and helping her.
Amy is given a job for the first time. She has to herd all the sheep into the pen. It's harder than she thought but she does a good job. She was able to finish her job with the help of Avi. She can at least say thank-you, but she doesn't bother. Maybe this is the reason Avi and Amy keeps on arguing. They don't know how to be honest. On the other hand, Ron is trying to make Amy feel better and express his feelings by saying things he never said before. He used the word 'honey'. These simple words would mean a lot to Amy. I think Amy, Avi, and O'snot all ahve similar personalities; but not very good ones. I think this is the reason why it's so hard for them to get along; because of their likenesses.
Because of Ron's advice, Amy is participating more in the activity by herding sheep. I know how it feels to touch new tasks and to think hard on how to accomplish them without a mistake; the fear, curiosity, and uncertainty really kills the nerves out of me. I think that's exactly what Amy felt when she did this. She had to impress Ron she could do it, and also rubb Snotty & Avi's face. Only if Avi, Amy, O'snat - everybody- get along, it'll probably be a smooth, peaceful summer vacation. Why do they keep fighting? I think it's completely pointless to fight among your family; you still have the same blood you can't change, and they're a part of you forever that can't be broken. Seriously, these people should try to stop fighting and start open doors to each other. If they're not going to, another conflict is sure to happen.
Chapter 14It’s good that Amy is helping around… Finally! Sometimes I don’t get Amy; maybe she does all these chores just to impress Snotty, who I think is not worth Amy’s impression. Snotty’s name really matches her personality. So in the middle of the chapter Ofra invites Amy to climb up the hay stack so they can all chill, at this point I really feel sorry for her, because Avi and Snotty start attacking her. Towards the end of the chapter, I think Amy humiliates herself because she actually challenges Avi, Amy tells Avi that she has a lot of courage and can push him down the hay stack and she’s not afraid to do so. She tries to push Avi but she ends up jumping down because she failed. I know how hurt and embarrass she feels in this situation…And the worst part is, she agreed to go on a camping trip with Avi, Snotty, and the rest of the gang.
