Summarizing What I Read Today in Molly’s Story

Today I am continuing the novel Molly’s Story. Today in the novel I read that Cj couldn’t miss another day of school because she kept skipping school for her dog. She went down to the basement that she hides Molly in and she gave her a treat. Then, she slid the boxes over in a hurry. Since she pushed the boxes over in a hurry Molly was able to slide the boxes over in order for her to walk out. Gloria Cj’s mom heard a knock on the door awhile  Molly was walking up the steps. The person at the door was a truant officer telling Gloria that she needs to go to court. She needs to go to court because Cj is missing too many days of school. Awhile, the truant officer was talking to Gloria Molly came out of the door and scratched at Gloria’s leg. Since Gloria doesn’t like dogs she screams and the truant officer walks away. Gloria yells are you going to do anything about this. The truant officer then says “call animal control that is what they do”. The truant officer then walks away and Gloria goes inside. Gloria closes the door and Molly wanders around the city/town.

Molly’s Story: Dislikes and Likes

Today I am continuing the novel called Molly’s Story. One thing that I enjoy about this novel is the entertainment it gives off to the reader. This book makes me want to finish it today and keep reading novels like this one. One thing that I do not enjoy is that in the book CJ is keeping a secret from her mother; that she has a dog. She is keeping it from her mother because her mother doesn’t like dogs. One thing I am confused about is that Cj is keeping Molly in the basement rather than keeping her in Cj’s room.

Making Connections With Ellie’s Story

Today I am continuing the novel Ellie’s Story. I am making connections to the novel. When Ellie nuzzled Jakob’s hand on page 42 it reminds me of the time I was hurt and my dog nuzzles my hand and was laying down with me. When Ellie wanted to go up on Jakob’s bed because he looked very comfortable on page 24. It reminds me of the time my dog wanted to come onto my bed because he wanted to be near me but I told him to get down because I was falling asleep. When Ellie was barking for Jakob to come back on page 20 it reminded me of the time when I always get on the bus in the morning. My dog barks when I get on the bus because he wants me to come back home with him.

Comparing Refugee and Ellie’s Story

     Ellie’s Story and Refugee are a similar book. A major similarity is that they both have people being wounded and at some parts the novel is sad.  On the other hand, they are different because Ellie’s Story is based on Ellie and her owner Jakob. It is mainly about the dog Ellie and Refugee was mainly about Isabelle, Mahmoud, and Joseph’s stories.  In conclusion, Ellie’s Story is comparable and opposite for many reasons.
