Saipan Southern High School book club members and other island teens discuss their books of interest by writing their thoughts about the book choice of the month.
Chapter 2 From this chapter, I change my feeling of Sam, because in this chapter, I have seen the Sam was a man who is in charge, it is easier for him to leave Max, but he did not do that. He hates going to the grocery, because he’s 17 years old boy with a baby and everybody stares and is so curious. I can feel this feeling. He like playing game and taking care of Max, from here, I can understand how much he loves Max. But, 17years old, I just feel to pity.
Chapter 2This chapter shows hardship for a young teenage boy trying to get custody of his son, Max. I feel this chapter was sad, painful and a little inspiring how he fights for custody. But it is also really sad that he is ashamed of being a parent. I feel like he should just be ashamed of himself for not being proud of his son at the grocery store. But the love for his son Max shows.
Chapter2This part is about Sam is going to home.when Sam is going home, Sam went to the store.he buy a diaper for Max. So, I think he is very kind. Because he cares his bady who is Max.when his friend calls him to play out side, but he really cares abouthis baby. So, he don't want to go out side.
Sam has a hard time, taking care of his son. He also felt ashamed of being seen from others when he went shopping with Max. I thought that he has things to be done even though he is still seventeen, because this is what he has done. Now, he hardly meets his friend, Andy. Since he has put all his attentions on Max, he could not have hung out with Andy. I felt sorry for Sam because seventeen only comes once in a life and he seems kind of missing the most exciting moment. I am just curious if he is regretting about what he has done.
Chapter two shows how responsible Sam is, but at the store the cashier asked him if Max was his brother and he said yes! Is he ashamed to say that he’s a teen dad? I understand why Sam said that, he knows that if he says Max’s is his son everyone will start talking and criticize him. Sam notes that he has to play with Max everyday which is really good; nothing can get better than a father-son bond. I like chapter two, it’s getting more interesting.
Wow, just reading this chapter gives you an idea about Sam being embarrassed he’s a daddy. I myself wouldn’t be ashamed to say if I am a dad, because I want a kid of my own soon. Just to see the other side of me or how they will be looking like or act like. It’s good Max here talks with his dad, and there isn’t any barrier between them.
Chapter 2: I think that this chapter is kind of boring and so far, I am not really interested in reading this book anymore. I think that the boy Sam is kind of embarrassed and ashamed about the fact that he already has a son to take care of at the age of seventeen while he is still in high school. I think that Sam really misses the way he could always hang out with his friends and not have anything to worry about like having to take care of a baby. This chapter made me wonder a lot. Like, who is the mother of Max, Why isn’t she helping Sam out with Max, etc. I think that Sam is being a good father and is trying really hard to take care of his kid.
In chapter 2, Sam seems he is a responsible father than being a high school student. Although he is not perfectly good at taking care of his son, Max, he did his every work he can do for his son. And I think he is having a problem with meeting other people at outside, maybe he is shy of seeing people with Max. I think he doesn’t like to meet others, because they might talk about him and MAX. At the end of chapter 3, he seems like he wants to play sports like Andy, but he knows that he have to take care of Max. Poor Sam I feel sorry for him
Ch. 2Even though Sam was a lazy boy at school, he still had time to take care of his son. He seems to be a responsible father. He wants his baby to be happy. What Sam does to make Max happy is that he plays with him at home. That’s a very nice thing to do with your son or daughter. Then for a while, Max falls asleep so he falls asleep with Max under the table.
Chapter 2When I started reading chapter 2 I thought Sam will meet up with the mother of the baby or maybe a friend from before or never been in awhile well as I was reading the story Sam was having fun with his son and had never seen a cute face in his son before
Chapter 2I think that Sam is an irresponsible person because he always forgets things. Like things for the baby. I also think that Sam is a hard worker and that he is living in a hard life. He has to do a ton of stuff including watching the baby. I think Sam is really struggling his way out. Sam doesn’t really know what to do anymore.
I think that Sam is stupid for caring about what other people have to say about him and Max. Why can’t he just live life to the fullest and just love Max in front of everybody? Max is his own child and nobody should have anything to say about it. If I were Sam I wouldn’t let anyone look at Max like he shouldn’t belong in this world. I would tell them that at least I’m a good parent, supporting my own child and everything. Although I think that Sam should’ve had waited to have sex or at least use protection every single time. Then maybe, he would be going to the same high school as his best friend, Andy, and he wouldn’t be thinking about how they both talked about going to the same college. Furthermore, he would be watching Andy’s basketball game on Friday. However, I’m not saying that Max isn’t suppose to be there but since his already there then Sam should love him as much as parents should love their child.
i think that sam shold not care what other people have to say about him because thats his child and he should be proud. i think its okay to be a single parent who handles everything.i think that he is stupid to hide from anyone and i think that when he was trying to hide he looed crazy.i think that sam really misses the old days where he use to be stressfree and hang out with friends,but now he has to hide and lie.why hid and lie when you shold be proud and happy.if i was to have a child damn i would be more than happy because not everyone can have kids.sam should be thankful to have such a precious gift.
this chapter is so amazing to read how sam had to go through alot of things for Max. I would love to meet someday even he ain't really, but i would love to meet someone like him. I would even merry a guy like him, taking care of a young one in such a young teenage guy like him. I just do really get it, what happen to his girlfriend or the baby mama. How could she just ditch a guy like him. Well am guessing she crazy. I really like this book, i like this kinds of book somewhat real life story. He as to be proud about a wodnderful gift he got from god. A wonderful baby Max.
This chapter shows hardship for a young teenage boy trying to get custody of his son, Max. I feel this chapter was sad, painful and a little inspiring how he fights for custody.Chapter two shows how responsible Sam is, but at the store the cashier asked him if Max was his brother and he said yes! Is he ashamed to say that he’s a teen dad? I understand why Sam said that, he knows that if he says Max’s is his son everyone will start talking and criticize him. i think this chapter is really great and i cant wait to read more of it.
I think this chapter is a really tough one for Sam because he has a lot on his mind and I think that if only people could just mind their own business and stop staring at a person with a baby. I think that with Sam always busy that it would be very hard for them to do things together and bond once in a while. I think that he is a great father that will receive something really good in the future as the old saying goes the one who suffers the most receives the most in life and that person is sam.
Chapter 2I can tell that Sam is a hard working person when it comes to taking care of his son, Max. He’s really into it. He’s a responsible person but at times doesn’t tell the truth when people ask him if Max is his younger brother. Though, I understand what he’s going through. I am amazed at how Sam handles this parent thing. It’s like he knows what he’s doing already but then he forgot to write a list of what he’s going to buy for the baby. Still, I think he’s trying his best. He is a great father and I wish him luck as he raises his son, Max. I wonder though if he’s willing to sacrifice everything for Max and not ever think of giving Max up whenever he feels hopeless. I just hope that everything goes well with him and Max.
