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.
This chapter was a little shocking. I can’t believe Amy’s mom is pregnant. I felt a little sorry for Ron. I hope he finds his soul mate as Amy wants him to, like Amy’s mom. It will be fun to have a new family member, but also hard. From now on, Amy will have to learn how to accept this situation. I think it’s a good thing that she’s worrying about Ron more than herself. As time passes, she might feel more lonely and left-out. All the attention she had from her mom will be split in half when the baby’s born. She needs to know that her mom’s love for her won’t change even if this happens.
I think that Amy should not get mad to her mom cause shes pregnant.she should be happy cause she going to have a new member in the house.well i was shock when Amys mom was tell her that she was pregnant.and i know that Amy wants her dad and mom to be together but its to late.her mom is with someone she love.and she should be happy to cause she staying with her dad and she have everything she wants in life well not everything.and i know that one day her dad will fine someone good and nice,
I know Amy was shocked to hear from her mom that she's pregnant with this guy Marc. When I found out that my mom was pregnant with my little sister, I was so excited about having a sister. I actually wanted a brother but it came out to be girl. So, now, I think that Amy has to be a responsible grown up sister. I have a feeling that Amy is thinking that her parents will forget about her and all the attention will be on her half-sister. I don't think that she should be thinking like that. She should be happy that she's going to have a sibling that she can talk to instead of Marc. Amy is growing up to be a mature young lady and I think she's going to learn how to be responsible as soon as the baby comes. I wonder, though, if Amy and her half-sister will get along as they grow up. Also, I wonder if they'll be jealous of each other.
Well I was shock when Amy’s mom was telling her that she was pregnant. And I know that Amy wants her dad and mom to be together but it’s too late. Her mom is with someone she loves. I think it’s a good thing that she’s worrying about Ron more than herself. As time passes, she might feel more lonely and left-out. All the attention she had from her mom will be split in half when the baby’s born I wonder, though, if Amy and her half-sister will get along as they grow up. Also, I wonder if they'll be jealous of each other.
Chapter 2You know, I kind of expected Amy's mother to be pregnant especially when she has been asked to marry that Marc guy. But it was ironic for me that Amy didn't expect her mother to have another child with ANOTHER man. I feel sorry for Ron because now he has no chance to get the woman he loves back. Amy seems that she has to work even harder now that there are big differences happening. I can't imagine myself on that situation because my parents love each other very much and it's impossible. SO yes, this chapter changes the mood for me and hopefully something good happens.
Chapter2I feel the same way as Amy feels about her mother being pregnant. I mean she's a part of the family she is just living with her Israeli father for now, she should at least know what’s happening around when she is not there. Even though she isn’t living with her mother she still visits her as well on the weekends. I just didn't expect her mother to be pregnant; after all she just got married recently. I just think that now that her mother is pregnant there is no way her mother and father have a second chance of being together. I would be upset if I was in that situation where my mother and father aren't together it just makes us as their kids realize that things are just not going well.
If I were in Amy's situation, I'd probably reacted the same way she did to her mother - getting freaked out, asking the same questions, becoming angrier, and swallowing shock. Since Amy was going through so many ordeals in school, love, family, etc, I think it was harder for Amy to accept this new fact with resignation. If only she talked to her mom and stepdad about having a new relative, everything could've gone smoother.Amy might not be the only one who could be crying right now; What about Ron? He's been asking Amy's mother for marriage ever since, but it all didn't work out very well. I could already see his sadness overwhelmed with depression... I hope Ron finds his own partner someday.
Amy is living with her father. And mother living with new husband his name is Marc. And Amy go to mother’s house, but she got effect because her mom was pregnancy. So, Amy really effect for mother. I read this chapter….that story is same as my friend’s story. My friend’s mom and dad were broke and her mom got a new baby. But she was very affirmation because she said “I love my mom because she bears me, so I love my mom’s baby. And also I love my dad; he gave courage for me when I very tried. But I want my family….my real dad and my real mom…..” I heard that and I though…love is important and really important love is family’s love. so, I think Amy heeds to think about more family love and understand mom.
