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 5 In this chapter, is about Sam recollect when he with Claire in the eighth grade English class, at that time, Claire is a show up girl, and she dare to discuss with teacher. I like her in this chapter, because of the she dare to utter her idea, and dare to say no. Whether anything or someone, I think, we should be study her, dare to utter our idea.
Chapter 5Sam seems to have been really falling for her in this chapter. It shows when he said he would kick him for not commenting her on her great suggestion to the teacher. He shouldnt be jealous or putting himself down though, he was barely paying attention, he was DAYDREAMING!. So anyways, he recalls back when he used to like her, and I do think that he is falling back into it. I think both of them would match. Teen parents, they could probably raise there kids together. It would be nice.
Chater5Mrs. Perris gave the work. Topic is "I'm supposed to askyou about some moment in your life that changed you favorer;Sam's dad says, "The day I met your mother." I agree with that.I think person of their life change is when they meet other person.And in this part I know the Sam mother was dead. So, he verymiss her and how much wished.
This chapter was all about Claire. I was shocked by her attitude during the eighth grade because at that time she was seemed very nerdy and outstanding. But as I read the previous chapter, it was in some ways..very ironic. I wondered if she had her own perspectives and knew how to stand strong with her opinion among the others, how she could not control her mind when she was in the same sexual situation as Sam was.
Chapter 5: This chapter was kind of boring to me since it took place in the classroom. I think that Sam’s crush, Claire Bailey was somehow a teacher’s pet back in junior high when they were eighth grade. And I think that she still is until now. I feel really bad for Sam because his mom passed away when he was nine years old. He must feel kind of lonely since it’s only him and his dad now. That must really suck.
In chapter 5, the story took place on Sam’s past when he was in middle school with Clair. Back then, I think Sam and his father was uncommunicative, their short conversation was always same. When Sam asked his dad a question for his homework, but it was hard to answer for his father, because the question mention Sam’s mother. And I realize that Sam lost her mom when he was long. Living without his mom at young age could be a painful life to him. And I was surprise that Claire bailey was teacher’s favorable student back then, I wonder what happened to her after junior high school year.
In chapter five, Sam should open up with is dad, his dad and aunt Jean are like the only family members mentioned so far and he shouldn’t distance himself away from them, however he is close with aunt Jean. Chapter five has got me wondering. How did Sam’s mom die? And who’s Max’s mom? The book is getting a lot interesting.
I’m glad that Sam and his father is good in communicating with each other, it’s really important especially when it’s just him, his father, and Max. When the teacher assigns them a project about turning point in their life, and Sam asked his father. I was not surprised that he said the day he met his mother. She must really be a good woman. I like this chapter too because he reminisced about the old times when him and Claire used to be classmates. I laughed to death at the end of the chapter because his Aunt Jean said about how her first experience using marijuana almost killed her. Was she tripping or smoking some killa chronics!?
Ch. 5Mrs. Perris tells them to ask some adult. Then his friend starts to fool around. Then Sam Becomes more responsible enough with his school work and gets some help from his father with his English assignment. He tells his father what this essay was, suppose to be about. While they were sitting at the table eating spaghetti he starts to think about how he misses his mother and how much he really wants her to there with them. And in this assignment he had a C.
Chapter 5Well in chapter five I’m thinking it will be um maybe a school assignment that they need to do an Sam needed help and can’t find help so he is not going to do this assignment or his going to ask a family member to help him out or what I’m just thinking that is the chapter going to based on
Chapter 5I think that Sam is kind of dumb because if he was to ask to ask anybody that question. I think that Sam teacher Ms. Perris was right because she said to ask an adult that you respect. So I think Sam did the right thing by asking his dad the question. But his dad didn’t give much information an Sam just kept his mouth shut. I think Sam was afraid to ask his dad more question about his mom because he knew that they both miss her. And I think he didn’t do it because he didn’t want to bring back memories.
Chapter 5:I think Sam is so stressed and worn out that when he hears the teacher say that they have a one page assignment to do, he just loses his mind. Sam has been through some rough times, but he is strong enough to still be standing on his two feet. For me I think that all Sam needs is a day off to relax and catch up with things. He is a teenager with a lot of things running through his brains. I know Sam felt relief when he had finished his assignment and turned it in. I believe in Sam and I know that he will succeed in this story
In chapter five of “Hanging on to Max”, Sam is flashbacking again on how it used to be before he had Max. In this chapter he is talking about how he was in the same class as Claire Bailey in the eighth grade and how Claire would always raise her hand and everything. Claire was close to the teacher, Mrs. Perris. Claire could talk to her anytime, like they were really close and could tell each other secret. I have a teacher that I could talk to if I have a problem, as well the counselors that are mostly there to help anyone with a problem; whether it’s small or big. When Mrs. Perris gives them an assignment to interview anyone they respect about a moment they had in life that they see as a turning point. The next day Claire comes to class and tells Mrs. Perris that her parents have a lot of turning point so they can’t do the essay. In junior high school I did have classmates that were like Claire Bailey, they would do their homework and if there is a problem in it they would confront the teacher about it right when they get to class the next day.
Sam recollects when he with Claire in the eighth grade English class, at that time, Claire is a show up girl, and she dare to discuss with teacher. . He shouldn’t be jealous or putting him down though, he wasn’t paying attention, he was gazing his eyes around. I feel really bad for Sam because his mom passed away when he was nine years old. When the teacher assigns them a project about turning point in their life, and Sam asked his father. I think people in their life change are when they meet other people.And in this part I know the Sam mother was dead.
In chapter five, Sam should open up with is dad, his dad and aunt Jean are like the only family members mentioned so far and he shouldn’t distance himself away from them, however he is close with aunt Jean.Mrs. Perris gave the work.

I agree with that.I think person of their life change is when they meet other person.And in this part I know the Sam mother was dead. So, he verymiss her and how much wished.
Chapter 5I don’t know about Sam but I really don’t like writing essays. According to his essay, he has to write about a moment that changed his life forever, if not his, then someone else’s. I thought this subject was interesting for Sam because I was curious about what he’s going to write. I was thinking that he might write about Max, when he first saw and hold on to him but he turned to his dad instead. It actually caught my attention, though, because he said it was the first time he met Sam’s mother that changed his life. I know Sam never had the full chance to get to know his mother. At this moment, it made him realize how much he really wished he’s mother was here. I felt really sorry for him because he didn’t quite explain why she was the one that changed his life or how. Sometimes I think that Sam’s dad is not specific with anything at all. I think he’s too sensitive to talk about Sam’s mother. However, I can tell that Sam is eager to know more about his mother.
In this chapter I was thinking that he might think about Max, when he first saw and hold on to him but he turned to his dad instead. It actually caught my attention, though, because he said it was the first time he met Sam’s mother that changed his life. Hey sam still need alot of help and was expecting to have some help from. His still a young person and needs alot of help with Max. I don't think Sam is not gonna last a life time with max.
