Diary Entree: Week 2

We’re halfway through the book and I’m enjoying it but it’s not so much of a page turner anymore. It would be a bit more enjoyable if the book had more plots going on at the one time.

I like the character Rosa because she is really nice and supportive to Jessica. Even though Jessica was very reluctant to sit next to Rosa in class to start with she soon figured that it wasn’t that bad because Rosa was someone that could understand her situation and help her get through it. Behind Rosa’s disability and the unusual tone in her voice Jessica noticed the kindness and supportiveness Rosa had to offer once she got to know her. Even though she hadn’t known Rosa for very long I think Jessica values their friendship just as much as she does her friendship with Fiona.

It’s sort of obvious that Jessica will fulfill her dream of running again in the future or else there would be no point to the storyline ‘The Running Dream’. Even though Jessica says she doesn’t like Gavin anymore it’s certainly looks like she still does so I think that he will very soon in the future ask her out. Though I hope that doesn’t happen because I don’t think Gavin is very smart and he’s someone that all girls like but isn’t really worth it.

My favorite part of this weeks reading is when Jessica goes to see her athletics team ‘Liberty high’ compete and she shows such courage to actually do this. I can only imagine that she’d feel like she didn’t belong to her team but what she didn’t know was that by her just being there it helped her teams confidence. I admire her strength to get over her problems and instead spend her time supporting her team members.

I think I relate to Rosa a bit because on the outside I might look like I’m not worth getting to know but once you get to know me I’m actually okay… not really…but anyway I had to try and relate to someone and if it’s anyone I’d want to relate to it would be Rosa because she’s so nice and thoughtful. Though I don’t really display those last few personality traits.

This is not the best book ever written but I still like it because the author uses so many emotions to describe her characters. The author is also really good with her words and I like how she describes everything in detail to give you a really good picture of what’s going on in the storyline.
