text-to-text:
This book reminds me of the text the Hunger Games because in both books they are fighting for their lives. For them its either do or die. In the book the Hunger Games the tributes are fighting to the death. In this book "Countdown" they aren't fighting to the death but, they are still fighting to survive.

10/10
Rogan Ellis-
labeled as a criminal, 18 years old, handsom, strong, trustworthy, protective.
The protagonist in this book is Kira Jordan because the entire book is revolved around her and her problems. All the thoughts in the book are hers. The book is written in 1st person. Kira is the main character therefore i think she is the protagonist.
The antagonist in this book is Rogan Ellis because he triggers all of the problems that lead to Kira. Kira wouldn't of been put into the game if he wasn't alive.
text-to-world:
At the begginging of the book it stated that Kiras parents had died from an home invasion. (passage pg 1) After her parents died Kira felt alone, like she had nobody. Everyone across the world has had family members die and know what it feels like to be alone.

text-to-self:
This book reminds me of the game soccer. In order to win, you must work as a team . In the book "Countdown" Rogan and Kira must work as a team to complete the game/escape the game.
Text-to-world:
Rogan had been acused for something he didnt do. People were acusing him for mudering 9 girls at an university and for mudering Kiras family. People around the world judge others for things they didn't do. They sterotype.
In conclusion, this book shows us to fight for what we believe in.
