Transcript of The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die

The book begins by Cady waking up and being dragged by 3 men through the woods. She can't remember who she is or why this happened to her. Cady escapes the men, and steals their car and one of their guns. Cady went to McDonalds for food and shelter, but is still trying to figure out who she is. Cady went into the bathroom of McDonalds to hide from the 3 men who just pulled up looking for her. Ty the only McDonalds employing working that night, told them Cady wasn't inside. Ty realized that she needed help and invited her to stay at his apartment. Ty snuck Cady over, and they got away from the 3 men. Cady heard an interview about her on the radio. It was her Aunt Liz talking about how she is going to stay in Portland and look for Cady. Cady and Ty drive to Portland looking for her aunt Liz. Most of the book took place in Portland, it was the main setting in the book. When they meet her she takes her to Cady's old house. Aunt Liz tells Cady that her parents created a vaccine that cures a disease called Hantavirus. Hantavirus causes people to drown inside their body, by blood. Cady's parents are the only ones who know the way to make the vaccine. Cadys Aunt Liz got really frustrated when Cady couldn't remember anything. Liz took her gun out of her purse and held it up to Cady. She remembered that Liz is really her parents boss. Their company Z-Biotech were trying to poison everyone in the world, and force them to buy the vaccine from them. After Cady remembered that Liz is bad, she tied her up and then called her parents. Her mom told her that her brother Max got infected with the Hatavirus. She told Cady that she had to go to their office, and get the vaccine so Max wouldn't die. Cady and Ty go to Z-Biotech together, but when they arrive one of the men that tried to kill Cady, Kirk, showed up. Ty started a fire causing the Hantavirus to be destroyed. The fire also caused Kirk, Ty and Cady all to be sent to the hospital. Max got the Vaccine from the office thanks to Cady putting it in a fire resistant cooler. The employes in Z-Biotech that were trying to make money all got arrested, and Cadys family all lived safely. The book ends with Ty finally kissing Cady.

Patrick and Janie Scott
Review
The theme in this book was trust. Through the book Cady is deciding who she can and can not trust. She figures out that it is not easy finding out who is trustworthy. She learns the hard way that her Aunt Liz was not trustworthy. She actually wasn't her Aunt, and turned out to be a bad person. Ty on the other hand was someone Cady trusted a lot. He turned out to be very trustworthy and always wanted the best for Cady. She learned to be careful who she can really trust.
I give this book 2 stars. It was a very easy read, but the plot was very predictable. I didn't like how the back of the book made the plot seem very different.
Symbol
The symbol was a puzzle piece. This connects to the book because she had to put together her memories like a puzzle. She was missing some pieces of information, and it wasn't complete until she had all of the pieces.
