Is he guilty or Innocent?

I believe that Steve is Innocent, I mean yes he did say he would participate in the robbery but he really didn't do anything other than keep watch he shouldn't have to face life in prison. If the jury would just give him chance they would know that he has been telling the
truth about what really happened and what his job was during the robbery. Everyone thinks he is a monster because they are listening to what other people have to say instead of what he has to say or his side of the story.

The sunflower that grew in mud

The sunflower that grew in mud

Did you hear about the sunflower that grew

from a hole in the mud?

Proving nature’s love is wrong it

learned to grow with out care.

Funny it seems, but by keeping it’s hopes,

it learned to be beautiful and strong.

Long live the sunflower that grew from mud

when no one was there to help care for it.

The Adoration of Jenna Fox

The book I read was The Adoration of Jenna Fox by, Mary E. Pearson.
The book is about this girl who was in a coma for along time and while she was in the coma her mother already bought another house cause she didn't want Jenna living in Boston anymore because she felt like it would be to dangerous for her. Almost right after Jenna's mom "Claire" bought the new house Jenna woke from her coma but doesn't remember anything. Eventually Jenna started to remember things, like when her grandmother took her to the church Jenna remembered getting baptized there. Sometimes when Jenna would be feeling something and not know the word to use to describe it cause she has no memory of anything she would just sit there and all of a sudden words would just start popping into her head.
What I really liked about this book was how the author described things like the old styled houses etc.. but the way she describe things it made it very easy for me to picture what Jenna was seeing. but what really drew me to this book was the cover it kept me thinking about what the book could be about. The cover shows you that Jenna's life is a puzzle and that there are pieces missing.
I recommend this book to teens. The reason is I feel like it can give young teens a sense at what can happen if you get in a car accident or your just born different, the reason I say this is because I feel like this book can help teens understand how peoples life's are when they are born with a disability or get in a really bad car accident and lose any memory they ever had. They will understand how scary it is not knowing who you even are.
The book only has 266 pages, for myself that is a lot of pages but it really depends on how much u like to read or even if this is the right book for you. Through out this book there are poems that Jenna writes.

Ghetto life

I learned that it really isn't that easy to live in the ghetto life as people think it is. The people that live there always have there life's in danger because who knows when a drive by could happen or if your in the wrong place at the wrong time and a drug deal or something doesn't go the way it's supposed to that person's life is in danger for something the didn't even do. I also learned how young the kids are that are committing crimes, like when the two kids threw 5 year old Eric Morse out of a fourteen story window just cause he wouldn't steal candy for them.
