After The First Death After The First Death Summary of my novel By: Robert Cormier Miro went to a school where he was taught how to kill people and torture them
Miro doesn't even know how old he is
However, When Miro finds out that the bus driver is a girl his job becomes a little harder for him
Kate(the bus driver) ends up staying alive longer than she should have because of the little children
The terrorists needed help controlling all the children Miro and his companions are doing this operation because they want the U.S to release all of their people from jail and for them to tell the public of a secret agency called Inner Delta
Ben another main character is the son of the general who works for Inner Delta
Not only does he work there he holds the highest position
The hijackers need a special stone from Inner Delta in order to claim truce
The hijackers wanted someone that didn't work there so Ben's dad offered him Ben accepts as he feels as though he can finally be appreciated by his dad
However it does not go as planned
The hijackers also want Ben to stay so that they can ask him questions
Ben eventually cracks and accidentally tells them that he overheard his dad talking about planning an attack on the hijackers around 8:30 am
What Ben doesn't know is that he was suppose to tell them that because it was planned so that Inner Delta could attack at 8am The hijackers are caught by suprise the next day
Miro grabs Kate to protect him and his leader Artkin grabs Ben
One solider shoots Artkin ,but meanwhile Artkin is going down his gun shoots Ben in the chest
Miro also eventually murders Kate
In the end Miro escapes
Ben survives from the gun shot but commits suicide because of all the trauma
After words, Ben's dad feels horrible and responsible for his only son's death Presentation provided by Victoria Bahena
Period 6 All about the Author Kate is a seventeen year old girl
She is currently driving toddlers around when two men go onto the bus
Before Kate can say anything she sees a gun inside one of the men's jacket
She does not know what is going on but she knows that the outcome will not be good
Miro on the other hand knows exactly what's going on Miro came to the U.S. awhile a go and is ready to make his first attack
He is to kill the bus driver
This will prove to his leader that he has what it takes to fight for his beloved country which he has never been to
He is all alone with no relatives so he has nothing to lose The author of the story Robert Cormier was born January 17, 1925 and died November 2, 2000 at the age of 75
He was known for his pessimistic and downbeat literature
His books often deal with themes that involve abuse, mental illnesses, violence, revenge, betrayal
In most of his novels, the protagonists do not win Whether or not to read it This book would be most appropriate for young adults and teens
You should read this book if you are into suspense, action, and thrillers
I would rate this book a 9 out of 10 because it was extremely interesting and it kept me hooked from the beginning
The reason it didn't get a 10/10 was because I didn't like the way the book concluded
The book also had a good plot and a wonderful overall theme Works cited "After the First Death." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 24 Oct. 2012. Web. 29 Oct. 2012. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/After_the_First_Death>.
