I am reading Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight and I am on page 168. This book is about a top student who gets suspended one day. Her mom is shocked as she is never in trouble, but comes to pick her up and finds her beloved daughter dead. In this journal I will be questioning and predicting. One question would be why was she on the roof and how did she fall from the roof? Maybe she wanted to intentionally fall from the roof. First, her mom is never around and working all the time. In the book McCreight introduces, “The worst part about their argument was that Kate had then ended up getting home the night before too late—late again, late always—“ (McCreight 12).

This can express that she/he could have needed to get rid of Amelia so no one in the school would find out about the horrible secret. Second, one of Amelia’s top associates was Ben. She would tell almost everything to him and maybe he would hold a grudge on her. This may be because Amelia tells Sylvia, her best friend since kindergarten, things about him and what they talk about. Third, Sylvia might have a grudge on Amelia. Amelia is a good student, and is a good athlete, and Sylvia is not. Sylvia may be jealous of Amelia and needs to get rid of her so she can be the best in school.
