Transcript: Free Read PowerPoint Project Judith Rumelt, better known by her pen name Cassandra Clare, is an American author of young adult fiction. Main Characters Summary Prominent literary item Will Herondale-Will has dark hair and ocean blue eyes. Will is rude and cruel because he believes everyone that loves him will die. He believes this because a demon put a 'curse' on him. Tessa Gray- Tessa has blonde hair and grey eyes. She is very witty and enjoys literature. Recommendation of book Setting Jem Carstairs-Jem has silver hair and eyes, due to the drug he was tortured with before his family was killed. He plays the violin and is very kind, caring, and lovable. The most unique thing in Clockwork Angel is that there are supernatural occurrences such as demons, shape shifters, witches, vampires, and werewolves, etc. I definitely recommend Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. I recommend this book because it uses great figurative language, such as "The machine walked like a man." Also, "There was a boy standing in front of her. He couldn´t have been much older than she was-seventeen or possibly eighteen. He was dressed in what looked like workman´s clothes-a frayed black jacket, trousers, and tough-looking boots. He wore no waistcoat, and thick leather straps crisscrossed his waist and chest. Attached to the straps were weapons-daggers and folding knives and things that looked like blades of ice. In His left hand-slim and long fingered-was bleeding where she had gashed the back of it with her pitcher. But that wasn´t what made her stare. He had the most beautiful face she had ever seen. Tangled black hair and eyes like blue glass. Elegant cheekbones,and long, thick lashes. He looked like every fictional hero she´d ever conjured up in her head. Tessa Gray goes to London to live with her brother. When she arrives Tessa is captured by twin sisters dubbed 'the Dark Sisters'. She was tortured and forced to use her gift of shape shifting for evil until Will Herondale rescues her. He then takes her to the institute, a place for shadowhunters to be cared for. Tessa meets the residents of the institute, Charlotte Branwell, the head of the institute, Henry Branwell, Charlotte's husband and inventor of a many great inventions, Jessamine Lovelace, girly and against all things shadowhunter, Jem Carstairs, a kind but very ill shadowhunter. Presentation Themes Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare Most unique thing in the book Presentation by Canaan Hall Clockwork Angel takes place in the institute, and the Dark Sister's home. The institute is an old church with very many rooms for passing visitors. The Dark Sister's house is large but sparsly furnished, in Tessa's room there is a bed with restraints, a mirror, and a nightstand with a few books. The themes for Clockwork angel are; you always need friends that you can trust, don't judge someone by their looks you don't know what they are going through, and even someone you wouldn't expect could be the hero. Cassandra Clare One prominent literary item in the book is personification. Personification is used throughout Clockwork Angel, such as "The machine walked like a man." Another example is, "The door creaked with a noise that sounded like a scream."

The game is mainly aimed at girls who are aged 7 plus, but male members are also permitted. Once a member joins, they are introduced to the rules and regulations on Stardoll and are given 500 "Starcoins" and 20 "Stardollars" to get started, that will encourage the new doll to in the future purchase Stardollars.

Transcript: If you are a writer, you might be struggling with getting your writing noticed. If this is a problem for you, online publishing might be the miracle you've been waiting for! It's easy, fast, (in this presentations' case) free, and you can get your writing seen by many people. Even if you aren't a writer, it's still great to read writing written by people your age. This presentation will show you four free writing websites I personally recommend. Widbook is a seriously legit (haha my use of wording :P) writing website. You can follow writers you like, and ask to collaborate with them on your own project. Widbook allows you to upload writing from your computer as well. It is very well organized, but does take some fiddling and getting used to. The site itself is very detailed. One whole category is titled "My Bookshelf" where you can put books from your favorite writers on for quick browsing. Widbook provides just as many tools for their readers as they do their writers. I like this writing website, but it can be distracting if you really just want to write. Booksie Screenshot: Website No. 3 : Wattpad.com Wattpad was actually the first writing website I ever used. It is very user-friendly; all of the subjects of writing are categorized at the top and you can quite easily scroll through stories and genres. I really like this website; It has the simplicity Widbook lacks and better over-all web design than Booksie. I would highly recommend this site if you want to easily write and read without distractions but easy navigation options. Intro: Reader or Writer? Website No. 1: Booksie.com Booksie is a very simple writing website. You quite basically write and publish whatever you're working on. I personally don't like this website; it isn't that authenic or nice to look at (which is kind of important to me) and the actual published writing on it isn't very interesting either. However, this website is a good place to start if you aren't feeling very dedicated to what you're working on. Out of these four writing website options I have shown you, Figment is my personal favorite. It is simple and easy to use, and the web design is really amazing to look at. It's great to read and write from. I have found really admirable writers on Figment. There is this cool feature for rating stories that is also unique to this site. Website No. 4 Figment.com Figment Screenshots Wattpad Screenshot Free Writing Websites ;) Writing Website No. 2: Widbook Screenshot of Widbook
