How Do You Feel When You Read Yous Book?

In the Reading Workshop we are  talking about how you feel when you are reading your book. The book I’m reading is called Because Of Anya. This book makes me feel really sad when I read it.

This book is about a ten year old girl that has cancer. She is trying really hard not to tell anyone, she wants to keep it a secret. There are only a few girl who know about Anya having cancer. They are trying to comfort her and be friends with her so she doesn’t feel lonely.

If I were the girls that are trying to make her feel better then I would invite her to stay at my house or hang out with her during recess. I would ask her to eat with me at lunch. If I were one of these girls I would tell a teacher or a guidance counselor at their school.

This book is about a ten year old girl who has cancer and is trying to keep it a secret. I feel like there is nothing for the girl to do. I know how that feels because my grandpa also had cancer.

Anya is worrying about losing her hair. She thinks that everyone is going to make fun of her and she wont have any friends. She is taking chemotherapy to help her heel, but that medicine makes your hair fall out. My grandpa went through the same thing (although he didn’t really mind what he looked like). He knew death was coming and he couldn’t do anything about it. That’s how Anya felt.

When my grandpa had cancer I felt terrible for him. That’s how I feel about Anya. I feel like there is nothing you can do for her. I feel like she doesn’t deserve this. She is just an innocent child that is fearing death.
