Transcript of Untitled Prezi

BOOK TALK! YAY! The Glory Wind The Glory Wind is about a ten year old boy named Luke who lives in Manitoba just after WWII. He meets and befriends a girl named Gracie who just moved into town and they play together a lot and become each others only real friends. Gracie's mother turns out to have a job which the rest of the town finds very offensive, although it is not explained in the book what it is exactly. Soon all of the parents in town tell their children not to go near Gracie because of what her mother did. Even David was told by his parents not to play with her anymore. Gracie gets more and more excluded in school and the parents even try to get her removed from school. But still Luke finds ways of meeting Gracie after school without anyone noticing. When things look like they cant get any worse, a completely random tornado tears though Gracie's backyard and Gracie isn't found. Main Themes FRIENDSHIP ACCEPTANCE WAR BULLYING Glenn Gould:
