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.
chapter8um when i started reading the um i know that they will mention the mother`s name britny so yaeh um sam is not with her anymore but i think he will that1s all i think about the chapter
Hmmm. If I were to be in the character, Sam’s position, I guess I would feel shocked. If I was a boy and my girlfriend had told me that she was pregnant I would pass out. I guess I would be really scared because I am not ready to be a parent at the age of seventeen, especially while I am still in high school. If I were to be Sam, I would be afraid to tell the father because it would just make things harder. It would make things harder by having to always buy pampers, baby milk, and all those other things that babies need. But if I was in Sam’s situation, I wouldn’t blame Brittany because it was both our fault.

I wouldn’t be surprised about the news if I knew we were having sexual intercourse. I would suspect that she’s pregnant if we weren’t being careful. I would be scared because I know my parents aren’t going to take it well, I would also be scared because how would I support my child when I’m only in high school with no job. I wouldn’t handle it well like I wouldn’t be calm about it because I’m scared of what people would say especially Brittany’s parents. I would have different emotions running through me, I would be happy because I have a baby coming on the way and to me that’s a really precious gift, however how would I take care of this child when I have no experience. The news would shock me a little because I’m thinking in my head “How could this be happening?” I’ll think a lot of the baby and probably be paranoid if anything goes wrong.
I would be very very anxious, above all me being only seventeen; it’s going to be difficult to bring up the child. Especially informing the news to my parents, that would be a disaster. Not knowing if they would kick me out or help. For example, if my girlfriend came up to me telling me she’s pregnant; I would be heartbroken at first because in Sam’s case they only had been dating a few months or weeks. Not sure if he even wanted her to be the mother of his kids. Then to tell Brittany’s parents would be worse, they would see Sam as a sex-freak.But for me I wouldn’t really mind a child I always wanted to see another side of me and just to bear a child would be a great gift to my parents. I would tell my parents right away though, just to get some stress of my shoulders, and hers too.
If I were in Sam's situation, I am going to take my responsibility to take care of the baby because this did not happen only by Britanny but by her and me. If i turn away from her, it definitely will hard for her to manage the unexpected incident. And because we are teenagers and do not know what to do, it will be better for both of us think of something to face for ward not only one decides. First, I will tell our parents and will come with ideas from them and us( Britanny and Me). However, I am not going to give up my dreams and future plans although I have someone who needs my care. I rather try harder to achieve my goals and be more responsible and protective father who can support my child later when he grow up.
if I were in Sam's situation, it will be a very difficult situation to me, i'm still a high school student and i am not ready to become a father. Becoming a father at teenage life will be a hard, since i'm not ready or train to become a father, i might wander about everything. And informing this news to people is ..the worst. However, i would tell my parents about it, because i can't do anything at this situation except running away. And i'll take my responsibility to figure out a way to raise my child with my girl friend.
If I were in Sam's situation, I think my problem is she's pregnant. So, I think baby is cute but making a baby is hard. occasion to student. Because to feed the baby need plenty money. But student does not have money that much money. Student need to study not feed the baby. Because we are suppose to have a baby when we are adult. We can have a baby when we have enough money. So, lets think about getting a baby. Now example is Sam's case. He is student but he has baby. So, we think about the teenager.
Oh my goodness. I would be a little freaked out and shocked. I shouldn’t be though if I were him, because offcourse, I will know what I did. Sam was a little freaked , I could tell. But he is a true man for taking the responsibility of raising Max as a single parent. Through this book, Sam has shown love, responsibility and great support of his son. A writer once said “ Any guy can be a father. But it takes a true man to be a daddy .” I think that Sam’s reaction was normal for a teenager, but what really matters was what happened after that. I give Sam props. He is who Max needs.
If I'm Sam, I think my first reaction is didn't have react,because I think, whoever, never think about this, never think about 17 years old to make father,and this wasn't part of the plan,so,I think I can't believe about that, my life have a baby, and I want to make money and support him. When I accept this fact, perhaps this will be new life, and I will be accept and do good for it, I will be strong anf I can't give up. Same to Sam.
um in this chapter i think it going to be about i think taking the SAT test an someone not being there for help to help sam or something eise oh then sam thinking maybe he miss being with the mother of max that`s what im think about this chapter so far from were im reading now
If I was in sams situattion I would just not blame anyone else but myself for getting brittany pregnant because i wasn't that careful with what was going to happen. If I could've been careful then we wouldnt have to worry about her situation. its hard but Its better to accept thje fact that sher's pregnant and be happy for my baby and her. I wouldn't even bwe shocked that brittany was pregnant if i was sam because were having some sexyual things going on.Even though its hard for us I'd still support my child.
Chapter 8I think that Sam is always illusinating every time he sees brittany. I think he does that because he really misses her and he wants to get back with her.I also think that is somtimes a pervert because he think alot about sex. And could also tell that really miss all those times he spent with brittany. I could tell that Sam felt really good when brittany walked up to him and said kiss me.
This chapter was kind of interesting. I think that Sam should stop being a shame of talking about sex to Brittany, because A) they already have a baby and B) they did it many times. Sam is still kind of scared to face a thing, that’s what I think. I think that Sam is always unsure about things. I know that when am found out that Brittany was pregnant he got shocked and confused; I know that the things that were running through Sam’s head were what I’m I going to do now? What are people going to say?
If I were in Sam’s situation I would really be scared. I know I would panic because I might not know what to do when the hormones kicks in or even when the baby comes out. If I were Sam and I just found out that my girlfriend was pregnant I would get a job If I don’t have one yet or get another job just to support her and the baby. I would be really scared but then I would never leave my child and the mother (father) of my child no matter what happens in life. I think that finding out your pregnant or your girlfriend is scary. It can really change your life and even worse, you might not know if you have support from your friends and family. Although it all ready happened there’s no going back.
If I were in Sam's shoes, I think I would be so shocked at first. Then maybe later on I have to think about what I have to do with this problem that just arised. My reactions would lead me to taking it serously now that it happend to me. I would like have big regrets and be telling myself how stupid I was for doing this kind of this. I knew what the consequences are but it's just the temptation thats so strong. Also, it would be so hard for me to break it to my parents and most especially to the parents of Brittany. Of course, they would tell me to find ways to support this child cause it was part of my fault. I think that I would do anything to keep that child healthy and safe.
