Transcript of Ashes,Ashes

By Jo Treggiari Ashes, Ashes Go Animate The End Sagal's GoAnimate -
http://goanimate.com/videos/0CoRLUOUhLDA?utm_source=linkshare Plot Summary The novel “Ashes, Ashes” by Jo Treggari was a very good read and I would rate it 8.3 out of 10.I would give it that score because it didn’t seem to drag on, it had twists and turns and cliff hangers were good and keep you reading. First in the beginning of the book when , Lucy, Aidan and the theme of the novel were getting developed, weaker and or drawling books will go on chapter after chapter, but this novel got the main aspects developed and moved the plot along to and it kept me interested. Secondly some events in the book were not predictable and when you don’t expect an event your reaction to it will in most cases be “Oh My Gosh It was you,” Which also keeps you reading and makes you enjoy the book more than a bland, predictable story. And lastly the author correctly and effectively used the writing style known as Cliff-Hanging for example, before the tsunami hit Manhattan the chapter and ended with “Then I saw it…the tsunami,” Those are 3 reasons why I would rate “Ashes, Ashes” by Jo Treggari an 8.3 out of 10. Sagal Susie Alexa Plot Graph Cody Bit Strips Susie's Comic http://bitstrips.com/r/LFGL1 I would rate the novel Ashes Ashes by Jo Treggiari a 8.1 out of 10.0 because you had to read the whole beginning of the book to get to the exciting end. First of all the beginning of the book also included action like when Aidan was being chased by the dogs after Lucy creating the adventurous plot to the novel. Finally the beginning didn't have a much action as the end it was still interesting to get all the back ground for the characters. This background helped me to understand why the characters did the actions that took place in the climax. Some of the background included how Lucy felt around other people during school and at home. At the beginning of the book,
Lucy is hunting, scavenging and just
living all alone until Aiden rescuses Lucy from tracking dogs. He alludes that he has been watching her for a while from a nerby settlement Lucy has noticed. We learn that a horrible plague took place and online 1/1,000,000 survived. Most of those survivors were taken out by the second wave of the pox. And if anybody contacted the disease and still survived they were disfigured, and called S'ans. After Lucy's camp is destroyed by a tsunami and she ends up going to where Aiden is staying. She meets all the campers including Del , Sammy (a S'an- and Aiden's brother), and Leo. The camp was attacked once by a mysterious van that kidnapped Del, Leo, Emi, and Jack- two little kids from the story. Eventually the van dropped back Leo and Del, but Leo was now dying due to the plague. After heavy consideration within the group they decide to go try and rescue Emi and Jack. (They being Sam, Del, Aiden, and Lucy) While at the facility where the children are being held, It turns out Del had an arrangement with Dr.Lessing to save the children and turn in Lucy. Dr.Lessing drugged Aiden and Lucy holding them captive for 16 hours. Sam and Del came back for the other two after Del realized that she made a big mistake turning in Lucy. Mrs.Reynolds, a health nurse for Lucys past, helps them escape from the Doctor and her goons. While leaving Lucy discovers 12 vials of her blood taken from while she was captured, she decides to take one just in case. At the end of the novel, Lucy and Aiden finally admit their feelings for each other and start a relationship. Del and Sam head north together in search of land unaffected by the pox. Lucy is no longer worried about Dr.Lessing coming after her because she realized all along that they only wanted her blood, which they got. Meaning Lucy was safe to live her life. "A thrilling tale of adventure, romance, and one girl's unyielding courage through the darkest of nightmares.

Epidemics, floods, droughts--for sixteen-year-old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, taking 99% of the population with it. As the weather continues to rage out of control, and Sweepers clean the streets of plague victims, Lucy survives alone in the wilds of Central Park. But when she's rescued from a pack of hunting dogs by a mysterious boy named Aidan, she reluctantly realizes she can't continue on her own. She joins his band of survivors, yet, a new danger awaits her: the Sweepers are looking for her. There's something special about Lucy, and they will stop at nothing to have her. " - From the Publisher. See Plot Graph For Novel's Summary For some reason you can't whose talking but you get the gist of the climax. A theme that occurred in the novel Ashes Ashes was actions speak louder than words. This theme was more obvious more towards the end because in the climax by showing their true feelings. For example Del voiced how much she disliked Lucy, a lot more when she came back from the hospital, but then she finds the courage to go save Lucy after she is back to safety. Therefore actions speak louder than words is a theme in Ashes Ashes. Theme I think the theme of the novel would have to be when things get rough stay strong. Lucy, the protagonist of the story, was faced with a variety of challenges such as being the sole survivor of her family, having a tsunami ruin the place she called home after her actual home was destroyed, and because she was being hunter by a doctor due to how her blood may hold the cure of the plague/pox epidemic. All throughout this though, she stayed strong and level-headed, which lead to her being okay in the end. That is why I think the theme of the novel would be strength is key. Rate My Wordle Project by Sagal, Cody, Susie, and Alexa I think that the theme of novel Ashes Ashes by Jo Treggiari is about freedom, maturity and growing up. In this book the main characters are teenager that are out on their own since they are survivors and their families and friends have died. Lucy was on her own in the wild for about of year. To survive she has to take care of herself. She has to catch her own food, wash her clothes and do everything with what she has around her at her camp. To do this and survive she would be really mature to last that long on her own and it would really make her grow up and act a lot older since she has no one to care for her. Another theme is freedom because everyone is on their own without their parents controlling them. They have to make decisions by themselves and can basically do what they want without anyone saying anything about it. I would give this book a 7 out of 10. I would rate it this because it had a good story line and could catch your attention. However, the reason I did not like this book is because it is not my genre. I like more teen books that are more reality and have romance and are also suspenseful. My Rate My Theme Statement I believe that the theme of “Ashes, Ashes” by Jo is perseverance. I think this because of what the main character had to do to succeed and the definition of persevere is “to persist in anything undertaken;
maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly.” This describes what Lucy did, from outrunning a
tsunami to breaking into a facility where the people that want her for experiments. She didn’t care if she got hurt or if she hurt others. She did whatever she needed. My Theme Statement My Rate I would rate the book 6.5/10 mostly because the premises was there the plot just got a little bit crazy. I felt as though the other spent to much time on trivial things that weren't as important as the climax
so when the climax did come around the reader was left confused. I also did not like the book because there was a a lot of plot hole in the novel, that were left unexplained. Such as what happened to the
rest of civilization? And why did Del and Sammy randomly decide to go north? Climax Comic
