Reading log #1, Topic Choice 1: The book, "My Life as a Ninja", starts out introducing a kid whose name is Derek, and his mother. Derek is an important character because, he is the one telling the story, or in other words he is telling the reader what is going on in his life. Derek is a kid that can be described as energetic, mischievous, and a bit of a troublemaker, because in chapter 1, he was causing his mom to get upset very quick because of his trouble making. Derek's mother sounds, and acts like a type of person that is fun, but strict at the same time, she also acts like a type of person who get s stressed easily. Derek is a character that is static, because I read a chapter that was in the middle and he is still his mischievous self, a piece of evidence to prove this is the title of the chapter which is, "Someone New To Spy On", on page 115. Another piece of evidence that Derek is a static character is the title of another chapter which is, "What To Do", on page 129, which means Derek got in trouble because of his trouble making so he doesn't know what to do. Derek's mother also a static character because, in the book it states, "Neither of my parents likes going anywhere empty-handed...." , this quote proves that Derek's mom is still stressed out person. The second and last piece of evidence that proves Derek's mom stays a static character throughout the book is a quote in the book on page 179. "Worst name for an energy drink ever", which means his mom is still fun. Reading Log #2: Top Choice 1: This time in chapter 2 it is about Derek and his two friends that are looking for a new academy to learn karate, and Derek mentions to his friend, Carly, that their teacher will be having people audition for a part in a school play. While that is going on, Derek and Umberto think about joining a karate class but to his luck, Carly asks to him to join with her in auditioning in the play. Reading Log #3, Topic Choice 1: Derek decided to tell Umberto about Carly's request and Umberto decides to not join a karate class and help Carly with the play. Carly has a friend that also needs help with the play since she got the role of being an actress and Carly will be the narrator. Carly decides she will carry on a big task and design everything for the play and she lets Derek and Umberto help her friend memorize her lines. The principle then calls them up, they wee scared and nervous of what he was going to say to them even though they did not do anything wrong or had any problems. The principle told them that he was thankful that they were doing a good job on helping Carly's friend.
