Transcript: My favorite part is when Mia finds Vanessa's mom on the ground in her house. The reason I liked this part was because when they were describing what condition she was in it made me wonder what could have happened to her. Once I actually found out it was not what I would have guessed! It was a good surprise though! Cascarones ? ? I would change the title of the book because the title "Confetti Girl" does not go with the book very well. I think the reason they called it that was because in the middle of a cascarone is confetti. It is not the main part of the book. I would change the title to "A world full of socks". The reason I would change it to this is because in the book Mia's favorite thing is socks. Confetti girl was about a girl named Mia Flores. She had a normal life except for the death of her mother. Mia's favorite subjects were Science and Math and her favorite sport is volleyball. Mia was kind of weird about her socks, she organized them! Her dad was an English teacher. Her and her dad live in Corpus Christi, Texas. Her best friends name is Vanessa and they are very good friends. Vanessa's mom is crazy, she has a crazy obsession with making cascarones, her mom is also divorced and for that reason, she does not let Vanessa around boys. ? Kyra What is your favorite part? ?

Transcript: Confetti Girl by: Diana Lopez Main Idea The main idea is about a girl dealing with life after her mother dies, while her father reads books all the time. She is also dealing with her friend who ignores her a lot. Plot Confetti Girl is about a girl named, Apolonia Flores or just Lina. Lina is a tall girl who loves socks, soccer, and science. Lina has a lot to deal with. Especially, how her mother died a year ago and all her father does is read books. Lina also has to deal with her friend ignoring her for some boy. Lina is also failing English at the time. Everything is going crazy! Can Lina get everything back to the way it normally is? Read the book to find out! Character: Lina I picked Lina, because she is the main character. Also, I picked Lina, because she was very smart and strong physically and mentally. Lina is a tall girl, who loves socks, soccer, pretty much any sport, and science. Problem The problem in the story is that Lina's dad reads too much and Vanessa (Lina's friend) ignores Lina for some boy. Also, Lina is failing English and has to raise her grade up or else she can't do any sports. Solution I am not going to give away all the solutions. Then, I would give away a lot of the ending. One solution is Lina hangs out with her dad more. Story made me feel sad and happy, because Lina just had a rough time in some parts of the book. I was happy though when she had good times in the book. This book reminds me of just having those bad days sometimes when I sometimes don't get a good grade and after that the day starts to fall apart. Vocabulary Cascarones: eggshells that the yolk are taken out of and confetti is put in the egg. You smash it on top of somebody's head. Felicity: happy Marsupial: It is a mammal that carries its babies in their pouch. SURPRISE! A surprising moment in the book is when Lina makes up a summary about the book Watership Down (because she didn't read it) and Lina is sent to the school counselor. The school counselor makes her finish the "story" and Lina writes about her life for the rest of the "story". I would give this book... 5 Stars!!!!!! I would recommend this book to girls who like a little bit of drama. I liked this book and I hope you would too.

Fun Story!!!! Main Characters An antagonist in this story is named Jason. This character is the antagonist because he always makes that Lina feels bad. Present day Confetti Girl By: Katherinne Barcenas Major types of conflict Climax Apolonia (Lina): She one girl who lives with her father. She loves to play Volleyball. Lina is one girl who collects socks. Father: He is a teacher of literature. His hobby is read books. Vanessa: She is Lina's best friend. She is also her neighbor. Mother: She is Mrs. Cantu.

Transcript: Belfast Confetti Suddenly as the riot squad moved in, it was raining exclamation marks, Nuts, bolts, nails, car keys. A fount of broken type. And the explosion Itself – an asterisk on the map. This hyphenated line, a burst of rapid fire … I was trying to complete a sentence in my head, but it kept stuttering, All the alleyways and side-streets blocked with stops and colons. I know this labyrinth so well – Balaclava, Raglan, Inkerman, Odessa Street – Why can’t I escape? Every move is punctuated. Crimea Street. Dead end again. A Saracen, Kremlin-2 mesh. Makrolon face-shields. Walkie-talkies. What is My name? Where am I coming from? Where am I going? A fusillade of question-marks. Belfast Confetti
