Read like a reader
The author wants us to know how Rachel feels
- I predict that it will be about being eleven and how to be eleven. Then I read the first few sentences and I am right. I think could happen next is a story about a different view of the story. Maybe like the teacher. I would like to see what happens with that
- I wonder if Rachel was getting bullied by Sylvia. If she was why didn’t she stand up for herself?
- The inference I made is that at the start you can tell she sad by saying And when you wake up on your eleventh birthday you expect to feel eleven, but you don’t. You open your eyes and everything’s just like yesterday, only it’s today. And you don’t feel eleven at all. It never said she’s sad but you can tell it by what she says.
- My connection is that when I woke up being eleven I didn’t feel different at all like Rachel.
- For this story I felt the same it started of sad and I thought it was normal because a lot of stories start of sad but then continued to be sad and had repetitive sad theme. So my feeling changed to a sad based feeling
- All round I think this is good story for younger readers but personally I wouldn’t read this book based on my likings. If I was little I think I would like this book but not now.
