Wave: Eric Walters
Social justice quote
" I can't just sit at home and do nothing".

A troubled event occurs between a sister trying to save her family. She knows she has to do something in order to save them and rescue them from a crisis that could end up killing her loved ones.

She had to find an instinct for them to survive and in order to do that she wasn't going to sit and do nothing. Beth couldn't relax until she had some evidence or proof they were all okay.
In this book Waves by Eric Walters it shows the main idea just by looking at the cover. Many people have survived and died because of natural disasters around the world.

Some include tsunamis like the people in this book had to go through. They still occur around the world and are a danger to everyone and everything.
Theme/social justice
Family, is something that we cherish and are lucky for,even though they require time its not always there for us to keep.

A girl named Beth tries her hardest in saving her family and the future that falls before them. Knowing little about them and their struggle to survive she knows its her duty as a sister and a daughter to save them all.

Beth knew she had duties of her own and if her family had to struggle then she didn't mind doing the same.
