The Terrible Wave
I think the author, Marden Dahlstedt, did a fantastic job writing The Terrible Wave. I think she is very descriptive in writing The Terrible Wave. I think a descriptive part is when the author wrote, “ . . . Stuff . . . has piled up there – it looks a mile high . . . ”. I think that sentence is descriptive because the debris really wasn’t a mile high. I think another descriptive part is when the author wrote about the wave,“ At first all she could see was a sinister black mist. It rolled toward the house like billowing smoke.” I think there is descriptive writing in every chapter. I think a really descriptive part is what the author said when the group was in a school. She wrote, “ Tom had drifted off down the hallway of the schoolhouse to join a group of men, melting away with only a vague farewell.’’ I think Marden Dahlstedt is really good at making something descriptive. Marden Dahlstedt makes the Johnstown flood sound like the most dramatic disaster. I love Marden Dahlstedt’s writing style. Out of all the books I’ve read, The Terrible Wave is my favorite book so far for being action packed and descriptive.

I definetly agree with you, Marden Dahlstedt did make the Johnstown flood sound really dramatic and she did it without over exagerating too much. I wish I'd thought to put that in my blog!
