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 is about radioactive.Sunday is a fuggy day.I think radioactive is too too hard for her, because she is joining almost everything.She said“I think maybe I should do some laundry.I think maybe I should check my e-mail.I think maybe I should brainstorm about my MIT appeal.That she joining some thing too much.
I feel bad for Teri and it's good to know that Kate is being there for her. The fact that Teri sleeps on the same spot where Mikey died kind of freaks me out. I hope Teri takes it easy on herself, instead of just drowning herself with pain; she should do something to at least get Mikey death of her mind. Kate is being really supportive; she actually follows Teri to her house and sleeps with her. I wonder what Mrs.Litch is going through right now. I really feel sorry for their family. Mikey’s death really shocked everyone. This book is starting to turn out so sad. Chapter 9 was really short. Poor Mikey:(
Mrs.Napalan you didn't post chapter 8 and this book is only up to chapter 13.
Finally, Teri asked for SOMETHING to Kate which is going to Teri's house together.And the timing was on the right moment because Kate also did not do anything and too many thoughts were going around in her head. Also, hse wanted to help Teri. SO, they went to Teri's house. I felt bad for Teir because I could see..she is having a hard time..and for the worse, no one can help her out...except..Teri herself. But I hope Kate can be someone whom Teri can lean on..so that the misery can lessen...
Oh my goodness. It is about time Teri is being wise enough to let her pride step aside and ask for for something. Teri is still really struggling to cope with the lost of her son, she sleeps where he died. Her whole family must be suffering emotionaly with pain. and Kate, she has a really nice heart, for pushing the hatred towards eachother aside and starting new with no complaints. Kate follows Teri to her house to sleep with her. It kind of freaks me out about where Teri sleep. I see that even though Kate has a lot on her mind, she has a nice heart to lend a shoulder to someone she used to dislike.
I think Teri should talk more, open up more, and maybe drink more beer. I guess drinking beer helps makes it all come out, and when it comes out, you feel like you said what you’ve had to say already. It may seem wrong, but drinking beer to socialize is good, than to drink by yourself and mourn all day. But when you talk about it isn’t leaving you feeling isolated, but seeing someone cares. I don’t know if she’s talking while she drinks, maybe she drinks alone, but at least she still goes out. I use to be roaming the streets in Garapan when I was around 15 by myself, late at night. Just to let some stress out and reminisce over my sister. I understand how Teri sleeps at her house, where Mikey died. It really shows, she misses him so much.
Teri’s family is really in deep pain right now. Mikey’s death is such a shock to everyone. I am glad that Teri is finally letting Kate in. but she is still struggling with the death of her son. I think that Teri should open up more and try to at least do something to keep her busy instead of always think about Mikey. I’m not saying she should forget about Mikey, but I just think that she shouldn’t always be thinking about him all the time because it’s not good.
Finally Teri asked something to Kate. Teri should talk more if she needs help, because people are there for Teri, they are willing to help. Although people are willing to help, Teri was the problem, she doesn’t want any other people involve. Poor Teri, I think Mikey’s death was big shock for her. I know it is hard to lose someone next to you, especially your family, but she can’t live like that forever, she should be strong. In Kate’s mind still a lot of things are going around and she doesn’t know what to do, I think many events happen too fast to her.
I think Teri should open up because Mikeys death is really hurting her, it shocked everyone but Teri, she was the closest to him. she even sleeps on his death spot, this is really sad.Im so happy that Kate is there for her.Kate has patience and she understands waht Teri is going through.i think Teri should open up and talk to Kate, Kate is trying to support her, but Teri is keeping her gates closed.
Also is a short chapter.The chapter 9 is talk about Teri ..I think he is sad and bad too. .. because he lose his son and something else. But, he can talk with Kate, that is right, he need and should be open his heart, and should be talking, Kate, a girl always knows how to care everybody..always always strong. I'm so glad because of Kate knows how to help him. i wish and hope, Teri and Kate will good for future.
I think I do understand what Teri is going through. Her Son has just died so she doesn’t want to do anything else but think of him. I think that Kate should just stop thinking about MIT and try to cheer Teri up. I feel sorry for Teri because by reading the recent chapters in this book it really sounds like Teri loves Mikey. Teri is actually letting Kate help her, finally. I can see that Teri is having a hard time dealing with this and she really needs someone to help her get through this situation. I hope that Kate could be the shoulder Teri could lean on when she needs a shoulder.
