The dedication page of my book.
This book is dedicated to everyone: the ones who believed in me, you gave me pride in my work. The ones who didn’t believe in me, you gave me the determination to prove you wrong. To Kyle and Jamie, my real life Sam and Jeannie. To Willow, my dream roomie. To Trici, Ashlei, and Danny, for giving me an abundance of dialogue and laughs. To The Gremel ™, for being kick ass. Thank you for making me the person I am.
So, i have to read this book for American Lit., and i’m actually enjoying it! I mean, Our Town was fun, but that was a play, you know? This one’s called The Things We Carried, and it’s about the Vietnamese War. I hate all things to do with war. i’m just too anti pain for that type of thing. but it’s really wee written, and you get to see how things happened from a bunch of different POVs, and it’s just a really great read. A quick one, too. I had to read 30…9 39 pages before this Friday, and I (of course) put it off until the last moment, and have been reading it since second period, and i’m on page 155! If you’re into war stories and stuff of the make, i think you should give it a try!
