Homework Help Is Here For You
Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement.

Four different people, four separate stories, and four unique perspectives are all tied together by fear. As the school-wide assembly ends, the entire school discovers that all the doors are locked as a student starts shooting. In this fast paced read, which only spans the course of fifty minutes, the reader gets the perspective of four students, who all have reasons to fear the boy holding the gun. Each character reflects on how they are tied to the shooter, decisions they have made, and how they got to this point all while testing their strength in this nerve-wracking, suspenseful book.
In 1944, two undercover operatives, Dart and Tamar, parachute into Nazi occupied Holland to reorganize the Dutch resistance movement. Forty years later, 15 year old Tamar inherits a box from her grandfather full of clues to his dark past and her own identity. She must go on a journey across England to make sense of them. The book tells the interwoven stories of Tamar the spy and Tamar the teenager.

Cleopatra De Nile is like the queen of the school but then Frankie and Melody come along and now to her it’s all “Frankie this” and “Melody that”.

Becca and Brett are together and Frankie (a normie) lost her head for him. Becca was sworn to get revenge over Frankie and she wasn’t the nicest ghoul on the school. Now Melody on the other hand was trying to keep her boyfriend Jackson from being exposed.
