i wasnt really here for a lot of planning but probably whatever it takes by imagine dragons just because it has alot to do with doig the right thing, i loved how we could relate it alot back to todays world and the soundtrack goes really good with the book, i actually really liked the book tbh and i dont really dislike anything about it, basically how he was treated made me the most angry and sad, i think that we read this book at a perfect time
the book was more about racsism and police brutality, and lots of the backround was centered around police brutality and how he got arrested for not really anything and talks alot about martin luther king and his trials so its kinda centered around that. and yes i really like the book and i think its a very good social justice book. http://https://www.google.com/search?q=dear+martin&rlz=1casfko_enus937&sxsrf=alekk01nwfgforhmjzqnuuvv22ievziytg:1615909248550&source=lnms&tbm=isch&biw=1366&bih=665&surl=1&tbs=sur:fm&safe=active&ssui=on
this book is about a saint bernard with a great life with the mayor of some state in the south i dont remebrr but then he gets kidnapped for a sled dog trade and taken to a warehouse where they beat him until he can barely move and when he gets traded he has to learn how to survive and how to be a sled dog and learn all the commands and stuff like thta but eventually he gits it down and he has a pretty good life after that it just takes awhile for him to get warmed up. and i thought this book was amazing literally one of my fav books and i recommend it to everyone.
we are left understanding that not all heros wear capes i guess, and yes humans play a huge role is stories like this because no you don’t have to have superhuman power to be a hero. i liked the conflict in the story a lot but i dont think i liked that the whole story revolved around steelheart and the epics we are going to be talking about revenge scenes in the story and our main theme is going to be revenge and we are gonna be focusing around that
I don’t like reading a ton but I will read if I have too, when I was pretty young I started reading diary of a wimpy kid, diary of a wimpy kid and wild life and hatchet, I usually just like to read in my room usually fictional books, only one a time usually, definitely fictional I don’t like other kinds.
The United States, and other parts of the world, were changed forever when a glowing red light in the sky known as Calamity gave normal people superhuman powers and abilities. These people came to be known to humanity as Epics. The story is told through the perspective of David, an orphaned teenager living in Newcago . Newcago is ruled by the extremely powerful Epic named Steelheart, who has created a society run by other powerful Epics, with normal people living with normal jobs. Steelheart is apparently invulnerable, is able to fly, can hurl blasts of energy, and can turn inanimate matter to steel; he has turned all of Chicago to steel for kilometers around and into the ground. Newcago is also shrouded in darkness by Steelheart’s lieutenant, Nightwielder. Compared to other places in what was the United States, war torn, lawless and ravaged by warring Epics, Newcago is well run, with normal people generally having access to food, water, electricity, jobs, etc.
David’s father was murdered by Steelheart around the time of the collapse. When David was eight, he and his father were at a bank which was attacked by an Epic named Deathpoint who had the power to skeletonize people by pointing at them. Half the bank was killed when Steelheart came in and Deathpoint started to argue with him. During this time, David’s father grabbed one of the dead guard’s guns and prepared himself to kill Deathpoint, believing that Steelheart was a hero. When his father shot Deathpoint, the bullet grazed Steelheart’s cheek and caused him to bleed. Enraged, Steelheart killed David’s father and then proceeded to destroy the bank. David crawled into one of the vaults, which ultimately saved him from falling debris and isolated him from Steelheart’s energy blasts. Later, David was recovered by rescue workers, but ran away scared. This also saved him because Steelheart came back with another Epic named Faultline and sank the entire building into the ground, killing all other survivors. David later guessed that Steelheart did this because everyone in the bank had watched him bleed and had learned that his invincibility had a weakness. David dedicates his life to learning about the Epics’ power, Steelheart’s weakness, and about a group of normal humans dedicated to killing Epics, called the Reckoners, so that he can get revenge on Steelheart.
Near the start of the book, David makes contact with the Reckoners when he interferes with one of their missions. Among this group are the leader and founder of the Reckoners, Jonathan Phaedrus, who is called Prof throughout the book, Tia, Abraham, Cody, and the newest recruit, Megan. They first take David along with them because they fear that he could be an Epic who was sent to spy on them. The Reckoners plan to leave him behind after learning that he was a normal person who only studied them long enough to learn their habits. David convinces them to bring him along and work with him when he tells them that he has seen Steelheart bleed. After going on a mission to retrieve his notes, David convinces the Reckoners to try to kill Steelheart.
