The book Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson is about a girl named Tandy. She is trying to solve the murder of her parents. Anyone and everyone is a suspect she will stop at nothing to discover the truth even if it is one of her twin brothers. From what I read some things don’t add up like the nanny that knows too much about the family or the fact that some memories of Tandy that have been erased are coming back.

His real parents had been drug addicts, he didn't know them, nor did he want to meet them. His aunt took custody of him when he was just born. Ever since then he felt alone in the world because no one understood him. He drowned himself in doubt. He kept telling himself that no matter what he'd become just like his parents. He’s been in gangs, sold and did drugs, smoked daily, became violent, got locked up, thinking that’s the only way to cope. That’s the only path he knew, the only thing he thought he’d ever be good at. Ethan is 16 years old and has had every experience that he shouldn't have had and out of all those experiences, only one had the outcome to change his life for the better. Being in the shadows and giving in to temptation was all he knew until he met Meredith. She made his life more complicated than it ever has been before. But she also made his life seem clearer than the thin ice breaking between them. He fell deep in love with Meredith, who he was convinced was the one. Meanwhile he has a girlfriend, Leanne and Mere herself has boyfriend, Leo. Ethan believed that what he has with Leanne is the closest thing to love he’d ever have. He doesn't want to hurt Leanne, but with Meredith in the picture, he has no clue what he wants. He knows he can’t have both and with everything else going on, he might run out of time to decide.
If Meredith is his choice, will he let that impact his friendship with Leo? And if he decides to stay with Leanne, will he be willing to say goodbye to his first love forever?
Recently, I read Switched, by Amanda Hocking. I appreciate this book. This book has a lot of fighting and drama going on, it makes you never take your eyes off the book.
The protagonist is Wendy. Her story is set in her hometown with her mom. The significance of the hometown setting is that she thought that she is a normal girl like everyone, but she is actually a princess. The significance of the setting’s shift from the hometown to the palace or castle is that her real mom is the Queen and her dad is the King. Her parents were divorced, so she knows nothing about them.
I am writing this paper for my portfolio and it is about a philosophy. I have to write about it and talk about how people use it in life. I also have to talk about if I’ve had any experience with it. I’m trying to brainstorm ideas, but I’m having trouble figuring out what else to write about so far I have this little beginning.
These two poems show my personality in the past and present. My then poem shows how "carefree" I was when I was little.When I grew up I started to care about what impression I gave off. So, instead of caring about myself and working hard towards my goals I became a puppet. A bad one at that and started to hate myself for listening to everyone's comments rather than ignoring them. In my now poem I am at a soul searching point in my life but you'll have to read to find out if it was a happy or sad ending...
"Carefree Dancer in the Brightest Light"
The ocean is clear The night is dark But she still dances in the brightest light Watch her as she captivates you Watch her as she brings you joy The carefree girl is dancing in her own world A mirror she never knew of worried her Her happiness suddenly stolen by the darkness Never to return that smile, that smile which lightened up the whole world
