The historical fiction novel I am reading is called The Watch that Ends the Night written by Allan Wolf. The novel takes the perspective of 25 different passengers or crew members aboard the titanic and uncovers the horrors they experienced when the titanic sank on April 15, 1912. Three specific things I am going to research are the boats that were near the titanic when it sank (why didn’t they come to the rescue?), the rescue from the ship Carpathia, and the telegrams that were sent out as the titanic was sinking (why didn’t Captain Smith heed the warnings he received?).
The book I am reading is called "Mississippi trial, 1955" and was written by Chris Crowe. This book tells the story of what happened to the murder of Emmit Till. Emmit till is a 14 year old African American boy that moved to Mississippi from Chicago to visit cousins, but in Mississippi most of the people besides Hiram are racist. The 3 things I'm going to research are... 1) is the Remington family real?
2) did they really call Emmit, bobo? Why?
3) is the Tallahatchie river where it all happened?
So far in my book Fever, a lot has happened. Mattie is a 14 year old girl who lives with her mom, grandfather, and cook, Eliza. They own a coffeehouse, and Mattie has a lot of responsibilities on her. One of their workers doesn't show up to work, and they later find out she died of yellow fever. Several other people within the next couple days die from it, and the disease spread like wildfire. Eventually Mattie's mother comes down with the fever, so Mattie and her grandfather attempt to leave the city. Since no other city wants fever victims there, Mattie and her grandfather are faced with some more struggles when they get left behind and Mattie comes down with the fever. When they get back to the coffee shop they find it was broken into and robbed, so food is very scarce and life is hard for a while.
1. Were house fires common back then?
2. What was the average age to get married?
3. What was the average recovery time if you didn't die from the fever?
My book was titled "Elephant Run" by Roland Smith. It takes place in WWII in Burma. The protagonist is a young American boy name Nick Freestone, who is the son of a teak plantation owner. Nick, who was living in London with his mother, moves to the plantation by his fsther's request. He is not on the plantation long before trouble starts. The Japanese army invades Burma and takes command of the plantation. Nick's father becomes a prisoner of war and is marched to a concentration camp. Nick himself, however, is left at the plantation under Colonel Nagayoshi. He works on the plantation for many months simply caring for the garden.
However, the time comes for him to escape the plantation, rescue his father, and escape to Australia. He sets off on elephant back, accompanied by an old Buddhist monk named Hilltop, and that monk's great granddaughter, Mya. They make their way through the vicious Burmese jungle to the POW camp, coming into contact with a Japanese officer named Captain Moto. The captain, for some reason, is bent on killing Nick and his companions. But he doesn't kill them just yet.
They eventually rescue Nick's father, as well as Mya's brother, from the POW camp. As they are escaping into the jungle, Captain Moto appears again. He captures them all, and is about to put a bullet through Nick's head, when the elephant they were riding on charges into the conflict. He kills Captain Moto and one of his accomplices. The other two minions of his try to kill Mya, but they receive a bullet through their skulls. Enter some American soldiers. They save Nick and his friends, and they make their way to Australia. The end.
The historical fiction book I'm reading is called Diamonds in The Shadow. In this book an average American family (the Finch's) brings in four African refugees (the Amabo's) through a program at their church. The refugees are a little strange but they start to settle into American life. The children of Celestine and Andre Amabo go to school with Jared and Mopsy Finch. When Jared is snooping around the refugees room he finds a rock. It's a diamond! He does some research about diamonds in Africa and refugees and he thinks they brought them here for money. There is a fifth refugee that got sent to Texas he is a criminal and the diamonds are his. He is trying to get to diamonds and get the money.
Do many African refugees come over to America with diamonds?
Are their many refugees that end up being criminals in America?
How do people in Africa collect the diamonds?
My story is called "kindred" and it is about a African American women named Dana who is dragged back in time whenever a little boy named Rufus is in harms way or is in the way of death. She has to save Rufus because if he dies so does the rest of her family. Rufus is the great great great grandparent of Dana so if he dies then it would be as if her family never existed. My some questions that I need to research is if the children of slaves were really all gathered together and had to eat out of pig troughs. Another question I had is how many slaves were caught trying to get to the northern states to be free. The last question I had was how many slaves knew how to read and write and escaped by writing themselves a pass so they could escape.
The book I am reading is called " The Book Thief " by: Markus Zusak. This book is about a little girl named Liesel Meminger's who's life changes when her brother dies on the way of moving into their foster home. Liesel then discovers what her true identity is along the way. A book thief. As the time flys of getting used to a new family and making new friends, something major has happened in her life. Her foster parents have takin in a Jew. As Liesel gets older she come more close to the Jew and a new friendship has begun.
Three specific thing I am going to research are was Hitler youth a real school? If so what were some expectations? Why did they burn Jew book and things? Also what war, or what was it that let the Jews free?
A Thousand Splendid Suns takes place in 1970's Afghanistan. This was a period of time where the Soviet Union was trying to take over. The book focuses mainly on women's rights in Afghanistan. So far, I have noticed that women are treated like nuisances and are seen as inferior to males. Unless they are very intelligent, most don't even get the chance to get primary schooling. They are married at a very young age to men twice as old as them sand often get mistreated in their new homes.
Three specific things that I am going to look up are
1) Why did the soviets try to invade Afghanistan?
2) Who all fought against them? Was it mainly teenage boys?
3) Did the communists really help with women's rights in education?
My book is called killer angels at this point I am not yet sure why that is the title. My book is all on the civil war. Who fought in it, who were the general, what happened to them, how it played out. My book mainly focuses on the battle of Gettysburg, and what events are starting to lead up to what and why the. Battle happened
One of the main annotations I have is that 120 men were transferred to a generals army the mutinies. Or in other words they did not want to be there. I was wondering was this really true or was it something that the author just made up to add some excitement.
Another annotation that I found a little bit odd is that there is a spy that delivers the information to the army. What I found was odd is his name is Harrison. I don't know if this is real or just another little fiction character.
The book also talks of a general that was ether killed or stepped down and was replaced by another general named George Meade and I was wondering if he was real
In my book, A Game of Spies by John Altman, multiple views have been taken from many characters' perspectives. During World War Two, two of the characters, William Hobbs and Eva Bernhardt, are being targeted by Gestapo Agents and are forced to run away. One problem with their plan is that they are not together, they must meet each other at their destination. Hobbs escaped the Gestapo once, but took a bullet to the leg, making him easier to spot and capture. The two will have to be smart and mentally tough in order to successfully escape. Over the course of the story, I am coming up with many questions. What countries were all affected by World War Two? Were the vehicles that Eva and Hobbs used to escape popular during that time period? And finally, what are the mental effects of being a spy(mental fatigue or regret)?
I have been reading the book Torn Thread by Anne Isaacs. In this book, Eva and her sister Rachel are living with their father in a ghetto in Bedzin, Poland. But in a street raid, soldiers take Rachel and she is sent off to a textile mill in Trutnov. Luckily, her father is able to send Eva with her because he fears that things in the ghetto will soon turn worse. After a long train ride to Trutnov with no food, water, or plumbing, Eva finally arrives at the barracks. After reuniting with her sister, Eva is optimistic because she thinks that the conditions at the camp are not that bad. She knows other people have it worse. What she doesn't realize though, is how bad the conditions there really are. She and her sister will fight off death countless times, and barely escape with their lives.
Three questions I have are:
1) Did Jews and Nazi's really help each other under certain conditions?
2) Are Parschnitz, Trutnov, and Bedzin all real places?
3) Were the conditions in the trains and barracks really as bad as the book says?
So far in my book prisoner 3-087 a lot has happened in the time period of 1939-1945. Yanek is a 10 year old Jewish boy. He lives with his family and for the most part his life is pretty good. But his luck changes when the nazis raid his town in Krakow Poland. What eventually happens is Yanek gets taken away to a concentration camp and throughout the hole story he has been going from camp to camp all around Europe just waiting for the British and the French to step in. Life at the concentration camps are dreadful. Right when you get to the camps you are put to work and If you refuse or you don't work hard enough you would be shot. The Jews at the camps are fed rations of bread and soup every night and there bunks are just wood no mattress and no pillows.

At what time period does the British and the French step in?
The book I am reading is "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" and is about a little boy named Bruno, who is forced to move out of his bright cushy house in Berlin, to Poland and lives in a dreary and apparently small three-story house. Bruno, as an explorer, discovers a new friend named Shmuel who is Jewish in the lonely countryside. The only problem is the giant fence between them, and the fact that Bruno is unknowingly in the middle of the holocaust with his father being Führer Hitler's right hand man.

The book that I'm reading is called The Help written by Kathryn Stockett. This book is about the discrimination in Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960's. The book switches between different characters every few chapters so that you get a perspective of some of the colored maids called "the help" and from some of the white people. There have been several conflicts between groups of people including an argument that resulted in building an extra bathroom outside for one of the colored maids because the whites worried they carried diseases. Another conflict arises when a maid is fired for being accused of stealing and gets a job at another house, but the white lady doesn't want her husband to know she is having help. One more conflict is that a white lady, Ms. Skeeter wants to interview the help on how they get treated so she can write a book about it. It sounds good to the help to get the truth out but they are concerned about all the danger that could potentially follow.
What was the normal pay for the help?
Did the colored children get good education?
Was Jackson, Mississippi one of the worse parts for discrimination in the country?
So far in my book The Wedding Dress, a descent amount has happened. My book it about three sisters who live on their family plantation and are trying to recover from the civil what is now over.

All the wail they have started making a wedding dress for the youngest sister Claire, because so many men were killed at war Clair thought she would never get married. Her sisters didn't want that to happen or at least lift her spirits about it so they started to make this wedding dress with what little money they had. When Monroe arrives they have to hide a secret from him, a secret that they have seen sprits and ghosts or deceased civil war soldiers. Then secret did not have to be kept for vey long though because one day Monroe and Julia went to town to get supply's and on their ride home Julia sees to two spirits of soldiers. She doesn't want to say anything because she didn't want to come off insane if Monroe couldn't see them, but when they past by Monroe commented on how those soldiers were from Texas. Julia was completely shocked and slightly relived. That is were I have left of with my reading with Monroe and Julia returning home from their trip to town.

He's on a journey to free slaves in Kentucky. The other main characters time frame is now in our times. She happens to be living in the same house James lived in. In this book there lives that are separated by time frames twine together in a battle for freedom.
Three specific things that I am going to research are the if James really did have something hidden in the house to see if that really compared to a real even in time. I'm also going to look up how hard/what were the chances of a slave getting away. Lastly I would look up if any of the characters, that were mentioned in the book, are real.

During that time the country, and especially in Oklahoma didn’t do well because of not enough rain and water for farmer to plant their crops and using for their daily life to survive.

Even though Billie was try to rescue her but it was too late. Day after day, the relationship between dad and daughter were getting worst, both side were fading away and not talk to each other because the Billie thought the reason that her mother and brother were passed away was because of her father.

She's fighting with her best friend, and the whole world just heard on the news that Cuba has nuclear bombs and they're pointed straight at the U.S. When everyone is living in terror she doesn't know what to do anymore.

The historical fiction novel I am reading is called The Lions Of Little Rock written by Kristin Levine. The novel is written in the perspective of a 12 year old girl named Marlee set in the time period of 1958. Marlee who is just starting middle school takes on the fear of talking to people until she meets Liz. Liz helps Marlee overcome her fear of speaking. But when Liz leaves school unexpectedly the rumor is she was really a colored girl caught passing for white. Marlee and Liz are willing to take on segregation and the dangers it could bring to them and their families. Three specific things I am going to research are "passing" which the book says light-skinned negros pretending to be white. (Is this real, and did it happen often?), the consequences for being caught "passing" the book says lynch mobs come and firebomb your house killing you and everyone you love (did this actually happen?), and the groups formed because of the integration issue. (The Ku Klux Klan/Capital Citizens Council/ Mothers League) (are these real groups and what did they do?).
In my book if I should die before I wake Hilary is a neo-nazi girl who is in a coma because she got in a motorcycle accident. She of course hates Jews and was in a club against them, but when she's in her coma she goes in and out of a life of a Jewish girl named Chana during the time of the Holocaust. Chana and her family get forced out of their home to a ghetto where their life is very rough. Now Hilary is at a Jewish hospital and the only thing she can see in her coma is an old Jewish lady, but she can hear her mother and boyfriend Brad. Brad is also Neo-Nazi and hates the fact that Hilary is in a Jewish hospital so him and his friend set up fireworks in the hospital. They plan to burn the hospital to the ground with Hilary inside! I decided to research about the ghettos and prisons during the holocaust because they come up quite a bit in my book. I also decided to research about neo-nazi groups after the holocaust to see how many there were. I also want to research some of the words they say in this book that I don't understand.
The book I'm reading is called Soldier Boys by Dean Hughes. It tells the story of two soldiers who have both joined the army for their countries (America and Germany) to fight to prove themselves in World War II. They join up in 1944 when they're old enough so there isn't much fighting left to be done so I'm not expecting some of the major events in word war 2 to occur. I plan to look up whether the Germans celebrate 3 days of Christmas? And why did most countries in that time allow 15 year old boys to join the military? And how long did it take from the invasion on D-Day for the allies to successfully capture Germany?
I read that book last year, it's really good. Enjoy!
My book is called The Last runaway. It is about the Underground Railroad in the 1800s.

Honor’s sister Grace dies of yellow fever in Hudson Ohio before they even get to Adam’s house in Faithwell. Honor feels very alone and relies on a man named Thomas who takes her to Wellington where she meets Belle Mills and Belle’s brother Donovan who is a slave hunter. Adam goes to Faithwell and brings Honor to Faithwell. Honor still doesn't feel very welcome and misses her home in England. Adam’s brother had passed away recently leaving Adam to take care of his brother’s wife Abigail who seems to dislike Honor and wants her to leave. Honor wants to leave but doesn’t have any other place to stay, she tries to make the best of it and help Adam and Abigail as much as she can. I’m going go research “The Adventurer” (which was the ship they traveled to America on) to see if it was a real ship in 1850, I’m going to research if corn was as popular a food as the book says it is, and I’m also going to research what a Quaker is because they are mentioned very often in my book.
The historical fiction book that I am reading is called "My Brother's Shadow", by Monika Schröder. The novel takes place in the year 1918 at the end of World War I in the perspective of a 16 year old German boy by the name of Moritz Schmidt. This book follows Moritz's daily life in the post-world war I Germany. Even with his politically-torn family and the countries failing government, he manages to stay afloat in the rapidly deteriorating world he once knew. Three questions that I have uncovered and would like to find the answer to is, did the Kaiser really lie to his people about the war, did the socialist revolution really happen, and why did World War I start?

I'm going to research how many Jews were really blamed, is Esther Solymosi a real character and were the prisoners really tortured
The book I'm reading is called Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. In this book it talks about a young Irish immigrant that was sent on the orphan train after her family died in a fire. The girl was adopted into many homes, and none of them were very nice to her. The three questions I have are why can the parents treat her so badly? Why aren't the parents checked before the kids are allowed to go to the houses? Did all the orphans go into families just to help around the house and on the farm?
The historical fiction book that I am reading is called Five Boys. It is split into 2 parts. The first part of Five Boys is about a boy named Bobby that lives in London.

A lot has occured in my historical book Boy In The Stipped Pajamas. The book is told in a 9-year old's perspective of the holocaust. A boy named Bruno and his family move out of theirhomeland to Poland for his father'a new job. Bruno doesn't know what to think of the new house, but all he knows is that he doesn't like the whole moving idea. When they get there Bruno finds a small window like the one in Berlin. He looks out if and sees people in stripped pajamas and small huts in a fence that looks like it never ends. His father is a soilder and is very important so that's why they had to move all the way to Poland. There is a guy that comes everyday to the new house and peels vegetables and one day Bruno fell off the tyre swing he made by himself and the guy that wears stripped pajamas helps. After bandaging Bruno up he tells him that he use to practice being a doctor until he came here. Bruno doesn't quite understand what being a Jew meant and why the Jews were held in concentration camps. He went to explore outside of the house and by the fence, where he met a boy that had the same birthday as him. His name is Shmuel, and that is how far I've gotten.
