Transcript: Scars like Wings novel by: Erin Stewart/ Giobana Calderon Solis 4/1/20 Period: 1 Author: Scars like Wings The author's name is Erin Stewart and she is a freelance writer/ editor, as well as a weekly columnist in Salt Lake City & a member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Ava Lee: Favorite She is the main character of the book, she lost everything, her parents, her home, her friend, and even her face. She doesn't need a mirror to know how she looks like, she can see her reflection in the eyes of everyone around her. When a year has past when the fire occurred that destroyed her life, her Aunt & Uncle have decided she should go back to High School. She believes that she can't be normal again, that their is no "normal" like a person like herself. Quote Quote: Ava Lee: "This is why I don't need mirrors; I can see my reflection in the eyes of everyone around me, My face always finds me." Why? Why? This quote shows the true feelings of Ava in the beginning of the book, she said this when she was preparing to so to school with her aunt Cara. For me this quote means a lot because I had that time when people didn't accept different people like Ava she has a burned face and that makes her feel different because people see her different and that is not right she sees the reactions of people's faces and she thinks of her self as a "not normal person". Also she is not afraid to admit that she is feeling "not normal" and says this to her aunt that makes me think of her as a brave person. This is the book, I mainly think that this book will teach young people about the difficulties that other people are going through like the people with disabilities. Many people judge and point to those that are different and this book is a life changing path which is good thing for all people. Cover Recommendation? Inside The book This book I would say that is the best book I have ever read and I'm a person who doesn't even read, but when I read the first chapter of this book it got my attention, actually it wasn't the first chapter it was the description of the inside book. So I would recommend this book to friend or a class because it spoke to me and I want this book to influence other people as well and I think that The author of this novel wanted her book to be a influence. Beginning: Beginning In the beginning of the book Ava Lee is at the hospital with her Aunt Cora the doctor is about to take off her rap out of her face and the doctor tells her that she no longer needs a mask to cover her half face burn, then Ava starts to tell them that she needs the mask , that she feels weird without it. Then Aunt Cora comes and tells her that it is time for her to start school then she agrees for only 10 days of school, this whole year she was home school. Middle: Middle In the middle of the book Ava Lee is at school and she starts to chat with Piper, well Piper begins to be a great influence on Ava,through out the book Ava learns something from Piper that Piper is the same as Ava because Piper had a difficult time same as Ava, and the more Ava learned from her she became closer to her and defended her from bullies at school, Piper was the first person she talked to ever since the fire incident. Although Ava still seems as an outcast, "not normal yet". Middle (Part 2): Middle (Part 2) Then when Ava felt an empty space in her she thought she would never be "normal" again, but then she meets Asad, who pulls her back into the theater which for Ava it was her love before the accident, and together they coax Ava into auditioning for the school play and letting her talents shine. Piper and Asad had a good spirit for Ava to be her old self again. End: Ending In the Ava is about to go on stage where she finally realizes the people are with her and she remembers the accident and sees lights appearing and it is Piper, Asad and her Uncle Glenn and Aunt Cora in the audience, Ava sees these lights as a way out to the real world and sees as a way to be, "Normal" again, saying she is ready to be her self again and takes a few breaths and closes her eyes and starts to sing. Setting More The setting that takes mostly in this book is at the High School of Ava because Ava in the beginning of the book she was home schooled and through out the book it was taken place mostly in the High School, & also that is where Ava Lee started her journey to find herself again. Importance in Setting: Importance The importance in the setting in the High School is that, that it was the first place that Ava started to feel something since the accident, & also started to do things that she didn't even know what she can even do on her own . This setting is where she met Piper and Asad the two people that showed her the way in becoming herself again, this shows a lot about the main character Ava Lee. What was Learned: Learned What I learned is that being different or make yourself think you are a monster is unreal that you should think of yourself as a

Transcript: Nia- Aaron's girlfriend, and the girl Craig is first in love with. She is very pretty, and also got accepted into pre-professial. She is also depressed like Craig, and takes similar medication to him. But she doesn't experience depression as bad as Craig does. Ned Vizzini suffered from very severe depression in his very early 20's. One of his early essays appeared in Time Magazine, called "Teen Angst? Nah!". Later that column turned into a book, that was published. He lived in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn in New York City. He attended Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, graduating in 1999. Vizzini's characters and situations are said to be based upon his time spent at Stuyvesant. As a big theme in a lot of his books, he ended up killing himself, jumping from a window and dying in a so called suicide. He died at age 32 only releasing 3 books. Oral Book Presentation By Jace Ford Summary Aaron- Aaron is Craigs best friend and the boyfriend of Nia. Aaron also got accepted into pre-professional. After learning of Craig's admission into the hospital, Aaron doesn't take it to well and Craig and him get into a fight. But later he apologizes for the way he misbehaved. Craig thinks Aaron is good at everything. I read the book It's Kind Of A Funny Story by Ned Vizzini, this book really captured my attention by going from serious to very sarcastic. Not being too depressing, kind of like what Shakespeare did in Romeo and Juliet. Having a serious scene and then a comic scene the next one. This book is filled with laughs and serious moments. Follow me for more!! Introduction Any Questions??? Author Background By Jace Ford Noelle- A patient at the hospital that Craig forms a strong bond with. Like Craig, Noelle broke under the pressure and became very stressed, leading to her depression. Unlike Craig however, she was pressured by boys. She cut her face with scissor's and was admitted into the hospital for self-harm. Her and Craig eventually grow to have feelings for eachother. I really liked this book because the author wasn't afraid to connect with the reader, and made it easy to connect to him. Learning about the author really made me enjoy the book even more, knowing that this book isn't made up and it came from his past experiences. My criteria for a good book is it has to grab my attention from the beginning, or else I will not be able to keep reading the story. I like books with a little comic taste in it, in this defiantly met that criteria. If you like books based on true characters and that will make you weirdly laugh. Pick up this book. Overall opinion This book goes into the life of kid named Craig Gilner and how he struggles with everyday life because of the new school he goes, and all of the work it comes with. He has to deal with falling in love with his best friend Aaron's girlfriend Nia. Nia struggles with the same depression problem as Craig just not as clinical. But back to Craig, his mental problems get so bad that he ends up calling a suicide hotline that persuades him from riding his bike to the Brooklyn Bridge and jumping off. Instead he checks himself into a hospital. Here he makes tons of new friends, and learns many life lessons. If you want to know what happens to him in the hospital and how he deals with his depression you will just have to read it which I strongly recommend all of you do!! Bobby- One of the mental patient's in the hospital. Bobby and Craig form a quick bond and Craig looks up to him, almost like a mentor. Bobby end's up getting a job, after Craig let's him borrow one of his shirts to wear to a job interview. Character Descriptions Craig Gilner - Craig Gilner is 15 year's old, and suffer's from depression. He started having symptom's a few weeks after starting high school at Executive Pre-Professional, a very elite school. The school's intense academic pressure combined with his love for his best friend Aaron's girlfriend Nia, caused him much stress. After going to countless doctors and therapist's he stop's taking his medication and his suicidal thought's become greater to the point he contemplated jumping off the Brooklyn bridge. He then check's himself into a hospital and makes many great discoveries.
Transcript: Clean -By Amy Reed Authors description Olivia, Kelly, Christopher, Jason, and Eva have one thing in common: They’re addicts. Addicts who have hit rock bottom and been stuck together in rehab to face their problems, face sobriety, and face themselves. None of them wants to be there. None of them wants to confront the truths about their pasts. And they certainly don’t want to share their darkest secrets and most desperate fears with a room of strangers. But they’ll all have to deal with themselves and one another if they want to learn how to live. Because when you get that high, there’s nowhere to go but down, down, down. Characters There is not really one main character the way the author wrote the book she split the characters up so you knew what was happening to each of the characters at all points and what they were feeling Olivia - she is different from the rest of the characters...

Theme The theme of this book is one change is possible in anyone and second asking for help is okay its okay not to be okay all the time Recommendation The end
