A Mixture of Feelings
A book that I read that really stood out to me was, The Island of the Blue Dolphins. There was just sooo much detail that is was very hard to finally rip away my face from it's pages! It was about a girl named Karana who was alone on the Island of the Blue Dolphins for 18 years. She used great survival skills that she learned from the village men when she was younger and was afraid to make weapons because she was a woman. Also, she captured, saved, and healed over 5 animals. With most of the animals she healed, she also became friends with them and began feeding them on a regular basis. In total she saved two wild dogs, three birds, and three otter. Karana seems like a really good person, doesn't she?! Anyway, I really loved this book because when I red it, I felt a mixture of feelings. Happy, sad, hopeful, hopeless, etc. Many people died in this book but also there were people that tried to save others also. Now you can see why I loved that book! If you get a chance, you should read it also.

I get feelings when they only look at my brothers and do not look at me that much.

You know what, I think that I will start to read The Island of The Blue Dolphins. I might have trubles with that because I dont have the book, ouch. The next time in Library I will look for the book.I thought my book was kind of stuiped, because the characters were fighting because they were in the same class. So they solved it by a Lemonade war. Ifcourse I did not pick that book for my blog, I picked dondondondadadaa, Jimmy Spoon and The Pony Express. I thought that it was a great book. Anyway I am looking forward reading that book.

FABULOUS BLOG STEPHANIE!!! This blog caught my eye! This is one great blog you have here young lady! I love details in books and it always makes the book liven up! I like when the author rights thoroughly choosing every word carefully as he goes. When I get my nose stuck in a book it’s going to be hard to get my attention. I can’t hear anything when I’m reading like the only people are me and the book. Well the book isn’t really a person but you get the point. I’d say that survival skills are important. Karana sounds like a very smart girl. She should never be afraid to make weapons. Girls have rights too and it’s not like we can’t do anything! She seems like an animal lover. I love animals too and sometimes I visit animal shelters and other places. I would love to help animals and it would be such a fun experience! Feeding all those animals, whew! That makes us look bad! I love otters and I like how she saved all those animals. Every animal counts in this world even though there are a lot of animals. Books are a great way to express your feeling. Sometimes I have so many feelings that I don’t even know what the feelings are! When I read sad books and it’s happy too I cry happy tears. I always cry when I read a sad book like Where the Red Fern Grows. WHAAAAAAAAAAAA! I don’t like it when people die! I think I could risk my life for my close friends because I’m a defensive person so even though I’m shy but if somebody hurts my friends oh you don’t even know what’s going to happen. I only have two more belts until I become a black belt! I’d try to save people and not let them die. Wouldn’t that be nice of me? I really want to read this book since you recommended it. You always have great recommendations!

Hello Stephanie. I love the book Island of the Blue Dolphins. We once read it in rotations. I makes the reader picture what this girl has been going through. It has so much voice and expression that it feels like your getting sucked into the book. I can't belive that this girl saved animals all by herself. Bye Stephanie!
