Buried Alive!

I have just completed the book Buried Alive by Jacqueline Wilson. I borrowed this book because the title is very interesting and fascinating. This book is a just right book for me because the book isn't that thick, and the words are not too small. This book reminded me of when I saw a bully at the beach in Hawaii, and how bad he had treated a helpless little boy.

This book is about Biscuits going on a vacation with Tim's family and they meet two bullies at the beach, and the bullies always follow them around, tease and make fun of them. Tim and Biscuits gave the bully a nickname called Prickle-Head. Tim did not change in the book nor did Biscuits. I think the bully's partner changed a lot at the ending.He started to be really nice to Tim and Biscuits.

Biscuits caused a "sandslide" and Prickle-Head got buried in it. Tim saved Prickle-Head's life by doing the Artificial Respiration to him. Everyone was very proud of Tim. Even though Tim saved Prickle-Head's life, Tim never changed his feelings about the reckless bully.

  1. A good journal entry. There should be a lot more to making the book just right for you other than thickness and size of words. What about your understanding of the plot, setting, characters, problem and solution. Was all of this clear in your reading?

    Your summary is very vague, meaning it needs a lot more detail. Include exact examples from the story to make your journal have meaning to the reader of it. This will also show that you really understand the book and that is the whole reason for reading. Look for the parts of the book that the author really made come alive to you and use these to help you with your journal entry.
