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.
I like the fact that Sam is putting his time to use, as in, he’s preparing for the SAT’s or maybe he just wants to go there for Claire, it seems obvious. Sam and Claire appear to have a lot in common; I know Sam’s happy about that. Sam fantasizes about Claire a lot, he’s much of a pervert. I think Sam and Claire should go on a date, they both have kids and since they go to the same alternative school it’s a good start. I like the other characters too, but to me the most important are him, Max, Claire, and the rest are just there for back-up. I really see these two ending up together especially the way they are bonding!
I'm glad Sam is taking the opportunity to see how he does in the SAT! I've done it before and to me seem like a waste of time! I feel the same as Sam when we have the same feeling towards someone and emotions in our heads just go crazy and we think of many things, good and bad! The way Sam and Claire are bonding I don’t think anything would get between them. Although Sam may not understand girls, like us boys we don’t understand them at all sometimes it’s just so confusing! But Claire seems like she’s an understanding person and understands how Sam isn't that kind of guy who comprehends what girls want, but I see a future for both of them.
Now, he actually started studying SAT although there are some influences of CLAIRE. Whether it is because of Claire or not, it was hopeful that Sam decided to prepare SOMETHING that helps his future. I thought that this might open and expand his dream and opportunities in broader ways. And...I like the part when Sam and Claire frankly talked about their past because it seems like now they are strong enough to talke about the irrevocable incident. And by this conversation, they started to know each other better and it probably shortened the tension between them.
Chapter 7: In this chapter, I think that Sam was very happy. I think that he was happy and at the same time very excited when he found out that he will be studying with Claire and two other girls after school. I think that Mondays are now his favorite days of the week because he get to spend time with Claire. I really do think now that Sam is falling even more for Claire just by the he talks. I think that they will start seeing each other later on, and I have a feeling that Claire is starting to like Sam.
Chapter 7Sam wanted to take the test which cost $24. He didn’t have any so he borrowed money from his Aunt Jean. It didn’t even talk much about the test here, it talked mostly about Claire. How he never felt this way for a girl. They made plans to meet at the library every Monday and Wednesday for a study group at the Library. Sam really seems to be looking forward to this. He made sure his hair was always in place and he looked his best. So they talked about the test they had taken, they all did really good. A girl named Gemma in the study group talks about all these things that are already planned out. Sam didn’t seem to believe her that much, but the least he could do is just give her his support. I would do that. So he and Claire talked about the kids, Max’s mom, Emily’s dad. Etc.

In chapter 7, Sam decides to take SAT, although it was all about Claire. I think Sam wanted to just spend more times with her and that was the reason he is taking after school SAT prep class at library. When they had a worksheet to do, Sam didn’t do well on verbal, but he did well on the math problems. I think Sam has a potential in math skills and his dream was to become an engineer. When Claire and Sam were in the library, Sam had an opportunity to ask his assumptions to Claire. I think they haven’t met for long time. And I think they will get close together from the after school schedule
Ch.7Sam borrowed twenty four dollars to pay for the SAT’s. he’s been thinking of Claire too much. Then the teacher had told him that she had made a schedule for him after school. Then, a few days later he goes to school late. That was a Monday. In this chapter it is funny because Sam liked it that Claire held his
Chapter 7 Well this chapter is about Sam pass the SAT test and have a good job coming for him and he can pay his dad back for what he help out for sine he had max staying with him but the dad don’t want to take the money and said to just keep for max if whatever happen so that was what I’m thinking just by reading the other chapters
Chapter 7 In this chapter, is about Sam was decide to take SATs, this is a good choose for him. And when he with Claire and Gemma meet in the library, they talk about the future and them child’s. When Gemma left, only left over Claire and Sam, and then, this is first time, they talk about future and past to each other. Everyone needs to have a close-heart talk, even is two teenage parents. They have not because of the child and affect by their future, I just feel so glad.
This part very hard to say it. Because it is about the college. Sam and Sam's friends are tired because of college.I'm a junior and I will go to the college. so, I can learn about the college I will go and I will learn more things that I didn't learn in high school. college is important to us. And you will feel that college is better than high school.And college is professional in learning something so we really really need to go to the college. To get my dream and for my dream become true.
I think That Sam made the right choice by taking max because max mother couldn't handle the mothering thing so she gave him up. Sam was really brave to accept it for the rest of his life. I also think that Sam is obsess with Claire because he join the studying because of her. And I also think that Sam taking the SAT is a good option because he will live a better life.
Chapter 7:I don’t think that Sam has a crush anymore on Claire, but he is falling for her. I know that Sam felt excited when Mrs. Harriman stopped him in the hallway and told him that he was going to take after school class with Claire and Gemma. I knew Sam was going to be late. I think Sam almost had a heart attack when Claire grabbed his hand. I know Sam felt ashamed and uncomfortable when Claire and Gemma asked him what his PSTAs score was. I think Sam felt out of place when Gemma started talking about her life plan. I know Sam wanted to tell Gemma to stop bragging, because she made it seem like she was perfect. I know Sam felt happy when Gemma left the room and it was only him, Claire and Ms. Licchesi.
I think that Sam made the right choice by taking the SATs. Although he took the SATs for all the wrong reasons it changed his mind about taking it just for Claire. I mean just because a girl is doing something doesn't mean you have to do it too because you have a thing for her. I could tell that Sam, Gemma, and Claire were really smart before they had children. When they took the practice test they all scored pretty high on it. They started talking about the children’s fathers and mother and I could tell Sam was jealous that Claire got pregnant.
I think that Mrs.harriman was doing something good for the tree students because they really need an education to succeed in order for them to support their kids Mrs. Was on the right track I think what she is doing is really cool help the parents who is slacking and need help in order to pass and become a successful person and parent in the future for them. . I like the other characters too, but to me the most important are him, Max, Claire, and the rest are just there for back-up. I really think that the s.a.t is really bull crap because he has to pay and that is wrong because he is a parent.
I think that this chapter is kind of boring and nonsense because it is just dealing with all this things that occur at this party that is not evening dealing with his son max I think that he should stop acting dumb and just do what he has to do to support his son. I think that he has to be more serious with his life and don’t make another dumb mistake that is going to make him regret in life. I think that if max grows up that he is going to really struggle in life thinking that how he might never ever see his mother.
Claire and Sam have a lot in common. I think that htey make a really cute couple. Claire is what I find a true friend. She is always there to help Sam out to decide. Sam , on the other side, is ashame to admit what is true. However, I heard that Sam did well in his PSATs and that is what I call a great opportunity for him to sign up for the the SATs. I think that Sam is a smart boy and that he knows what he is doing except for the part when he impregnate Brittany. I think that he wasn't thinking at that time. This time he is really serious about his future.
