Holden had a very good reason to stay alive and that reason was his little sister because he loved and admired her very much. For example, “You should see her. You never saw a little kid so pretty and smart in your whole life… I mean she’s had all A’s ever since she started school… You’d like her. I mean if you tell old Phoebe something she knows exactly what the hell you’re talking about” (105). Holden loves his sister very much and has never said that she was a phony.
It states in the story Lupe, “never missed one day of elementary school. She had received a small trophy for this honor and had been congratulated by the mayor.” This shows me that school is very important for Lupe because she is smart, good at it, and she is dedicated. In addition Lupe got straight A’s and she said she had a razor sharp mind. Straight A’s are hard to get and this proves that she is smart. Another example is that Lupe wins lots of contests.
She grew up in a small town named Morrisville, Vermont. Beckie attended Morrisville Grade School which was where her father went to grade school, and People’s Academy for high school. Beckie’s favorite subjects in school were English and history. In the high school yearbook Beckie always got voted as the one never to be seen without makeup. Her hair was and still is her #1 worry; in high school she wouldn’t care how late it was and would always put pin curlers in her hair every night.
"My 'top score' was 247 beats per minute. A normal heartbeat is 80 to 90bpm.

But despite believing that she has been left behind, she still feels lucky to be alive. And now, has made it her mission to share her story and save other young people.

Even though Sye has never attended a day care, she has always had the ability to make friends her age and is very comfortable around adults. During her first two years of school, Sye developed a tendency to stick around the adults or teachers during school and social events. Sye’s mom has stated numerous times, “I truly think she wants to be an adult already” while laughing. During her second grade school year, Sye became better about running around the playground with her friends and not sticking next to the teachers. I have never see a kid with so many great mannerisms.
For one, Lupe is a good leader is because she is smart. For example, she won the blue science. Also, she is the winner of the reading contest three summers in a row. In addition, she was the top student at her piano recital. Then, she was spelling bee champion in the school’s spelling bee.
The Book Thief will give you a new view on world war 2 and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to read a challenging book. As mentioned before it all started with Liesel Meminger(was 14), her mother, and the corpse of her brother. This day would give Liesel nightmares for years, every night. Liesel's brother died of some form of disease. Her brother was berried on the way to Munich, there she stole her first book from a grave digger(Liesel didn't know how to read due to her families poorness).
When she got to eighth grade, she had to take a test to continue onto high school. She always did very well in school and passed the test easily, but her parents got her a worker’s permit and she never went to high school. In some ways, I think she regrets not going, but she is constantly working and was most likely more than happy to help her family out. With or without high school, she is unbelievably intelligent and I am so proud to call her my grandma. Just sitting down with her for a short amount of time, I learned so much about the past and I definitely recommend you talk to an elder you know.

My personal Michigan hero is my seventh grade social studies teacher, Ms. Dokter. Though I am not a personal friend of hers, per say, she had a tremendous impact on my life. She made me laugh, told me that I could do whatever I put my mind to, and was an amazing educator. Seventh grade was tough for me at times. I was at a new school, and it seemed like everyone knew what they were doing except me.
