it certainly gets your attention from the start.
what is it like being home schooled, or going to a public school. if anyone knows please answer. tks
Going to public school

Going to a public school is interesting. U get to meet a lot of different people and learn about their cultures and stuff that they do with a family. It's just like every other school.
I don't go to a public school anymore cuz i go to a catholic school but i used to go to a public school for 6 years.

This book seems ............................
I don't know if i'll read it yet. i guess i'll have to wait and see. Has anyone read AIRBORN yet?? How about OVERNIGHT?? Just wondering. They are both very good books. How abot STORY TIME?? That was one of the best books i've read. VERY VERY EXCITING. I think it was from about 4 weeks ago. Very good!!!

Your right, this book is very different. It's a lot different from the genres I usually read. It's very very good though. I'm sure you'll like it.
I've never read any of those books. What's Story Time about? Do you know the authors name? Maybe I'll check it out at the library.
|June 24 2005, 6:58 PM |
Erin, Story Time is the book that we read about 3 or 4 weeks ago, look for it on these fourms and then it will give you info about it, this book is getting good, i think i'll check it out!

U guys r both right, this book is weirdly different but good! Nacy Farmer is very creative! Who would think of such things that r in the book? Flipped is also a very good book, and i'm tring to find out how i can contact the author!

Ya, I've read Airborne. I thought that it was pretty good. It's non-fiction. The author is Shane Osborne, I think. It was a pretty quick read.

being homeschooled is a lot of fun,its nice staying at home and working at ur own speed.
Next year i will be able to see what public schoolis like cuase i'm gonna finish off the last 2 years of my education there.
bout the book, i feel so sorry for the main charactar, i dont think its fair that he has to be basically 'locked up' in his house all the time.im not gonna take this book out cause its to strange, i mean, making children from cows? weird.
to me i wouldn't read this book
|June 22 2005, 11:45 AM |
i was yawning threw the whole chapter i read . i barely could keep my eyes open. i more of a reality type book person maybe that's why i need some thing that's fictional but everybody goes through like gossipgirl.

I wouldn't either. I'm not the fictional type girl,I'm more of The Cat and the Hat, OK well maybe when I was 5 but do you get the point?
The First Time
|June 23 2005, 9:51 AM |
This was my first time reading anything of this book. A few of my friends have tried to get me to read it but I never have. Yesturday my friend and I were talking about the book and the way that she summurized it it sounded boring. Bt after reading this, I think I might get if from the library.
