I am reading House if Dark Shadows. So in my book Xander (main character) woke up to the sound of something that fallen. He and his brother, Xander come out to check it out. So they turn on a light switch and sees a mans shoulder at the end of the hallway but then he disappears! So they have to decide if they want to go after him or not! They decide to and they discoverd a hidden door and enter to find a hidden world! If I were in his shoes I would do exactly that! I would have to go after him! I couldn't just have somebody roaming through my house! But I wouldn't enter the hidden door. This would change the book because Xander and David would never know who the man would be! And they would of never discoverd the hidden world! This would be different from what Xander and David did because they did go open the hidden door and I would not of! So this would really change the book!

The main character in my book, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, is a a French man named Professor Arronax. Arronax was being kidnapped by Pirates (I think that is that they were) and had to make the decision to stay calm. If he wouldn't have remained calm he could have been killed. If I were in his shoes I would make the same decision to be calm and just follow and do what I was told to do because i wouldn't want to be killed. I would be calm just like Arronax so my actions would not change the story because I would choose to do the same thing he did.
In the book i'm reading I.Q The White House by James Dasher, the main character Q and angela was outside and Eben came outside with a knife behind his back and took Q and held the knife up to his rib cage and demanded answers from Angela. But if Agela didn't answer Q would die. Q was trying to move and get away from Eben. If I was Q in this situation I wouldn't move because Eben probably wouldn't of stuck the tip of the knife in Q's neck.
My book, Amaire Stoudemire is about a kid Amaire who is a basketball player. The problem he had was that he wasn't very good in basketball. The kid's made fun of him. He didn't practice much and really loved basketball. If I were Amaire Stoudemire, I would have practiced more so I wouldn't have gotten made fun of. I would make sure I had arranged opportunities to practice and get help from someone who wouldn't make fun of me.
The main character in the book I'm reading is Tris. A decision made by Tris was whether or not she'd stay in her faction Abnegation, or switch to one of the other four factions which are Amity, Dauntless, Candor, and Erudite. Her decision was to switch to Dauntless, a faction full of brave, strong, and fearless people.
If I were in her shoes and got to have a chance to switch from Abnegation and pick any faction I thought would be good for me, I would pick Amity. Amity is a faction with people who love when people get along, enjoys music and arts, it is easy to get them to laugh. This would be similar to Tris' decision because we would both switch factions from Abnegation to try something new. This would be different from Tris' decision because Amity and Dauntless are completely different and they both have completely different personalities.
My actions would change the story because since I would choose Amity I think the book would have less bad things happening in it. For example, Tris' friend Al kills himself because Tris doesn't forgive him for helping someone try to kill her. Al feels so bad that he throws himself into the Chasm (A river full of rocks under a bridge at what the Dauntless call the pit.) If I were Tris and I chose Amity Al wouldn't have done that to himself.
This is all of what I would do if I were in Tris' shoes and that's how I would change the story. I hope you enjoyed it!
In. My book one of the main characters get turned into a zombie and the other main characters tie her up and put her in a homemade strait jacket. Then they decide to take her along.
I would not of taken her along because then if she got lose and bit on of us we would have to worry about the other person when we already have to worry about one person. My decision would be way different than the story's decision because then when we would get the antidote we could just find her and then give her the antidote so she could become a human again
I am reading a book called Miracle on 49th Street about a girl named Molly and a NBA player named Josh Cameron.
The main character Molly and Josh Cameron [an NBA player] got into an argument because Josh was doing and saying stuff. So Molly got mad and wanted to get away from Josh. She wouldn't listen or want to see him and wouldn't let Josh try to trick her.
If this happened to me I would just resolve it right then and there. I would avoid everything that happens and keep all the obstacles away.
What I would do would be the same because Molly would still be with her friends and Josh would keep on playing basketball. They would also in the end still be happy. There would also still be a little conflict.
It would be different because Molly and Josh would have made up. Then resolution would have been made instead of the story going on and on. They also wouldn't go thorough any more obstacles. Also because the part that I change is leading up to the climax so the story would have already been resolved. So there would have been less conflict and the story would have been shorter.
Welcome to the first blizzard bag question. I am writing about this because I left my book at school, so I'm reading one of my brothers books. In one part in the book, Leo and his friend were chasing this boy who stole his gold. The boy who had the gold, jumped through the fire. So the 2 boys had to react fast. It was jump through the fire or just let the gold go. Now Leo of course, jumped through the fire. If I were Leo, in that situation, I would just let the gold go because your life is more important than just a little bit of gold. When Leo and his friend jumped through the fire his friend came out on fire. they but the fire out by stomping on his pants. Hope you all enjoyed the story.

One decision made by my main character (Tris) is to go and help Marcus (which is her boyfriends dad) find a top secret slip of information in the erudite compound. If I were in her shoes I would not go help Marcus but I would go with my boyfriend (Tobias) and the other Amity and some Dauntless to the Erudite compound to stop the factionless from killing the Erudite all together. It would be similar because in both situations someone is trying to end the war. Tris, Marcus, and Christina are trying to get the secret information to ruin Jeanine ( the reason for the war ) and Tobias, Amity, and some dauntless and some other friends are trying to stop the factionless from being violent. It would be different because Tris, Marcus and Christina are getting information to stop the war and Tobias and the others are stopping the factionless from hurting the Erudite because Amity does not like violence. My actions would change the story by not having Tobias get mad at Tris for going Behind his back and working with his dad ( which he hates ) to do something totally different than what Tobias if trying to do. Tobias would be happy with Tris and they could move on with there path to ending the war instead of wasting time arguing.things would go a lot faster and smoother!
My main character has to decide if he will tell the police he was in the house when a man died or if he's going to tell them he wasn't if he does he gets blamed for the murder. I would of went to my mom and asked her. What she said to do is what I'd do because I trust my mom. But I still probably lied because I wouldn't want to get the blame for murder I didn't do. I would just tell them. What happened I didn't even know what was going on? Bad thing to do but you wouldn't get trouble for the murder. That's what I'd do because I would be under pressure and I don't like pressure.
In the book Little House In The Big Woods the main character is Laura. A decision made by Laura was she said that she hated Sunday and if I were her I would not of said that because back then you could get into serious trouble and on Sundays you could not scream, play, or be noisy you had to listen to what your Ma read in the bible. If I were her it would of changed my actions in the story because Laura would not of got into trouble and she wouldn't of been punished. That is what I would do if I were in my characters shoes!
Ok so i'm reading Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban and there's this one part where Harry recieved a broomstick for Quittage and it was the fastest broom in the world and when he gets it he doesn't ride it. His Friend Hermione Tells him it could be cursed because he doesn't know who it came from. So Hermione won't let him ride it and she got a teacher to inspect it.
If i were harry I would have rode it the second i saw it because i couldn't have waited. Well thats my story so bye.
Adam had to make a decision on whether to go and help his friends because they were in trouble. He had to either go and help, or stay in his lab and see everything. He went but I would stay in the lab and see everything, then call the cops. But his friends would still be in trouble. I made a different decision and I would call the cops. Adams friends might get hurt before the cops get there.
If I was in my main characters shoes I would stand up for all of my other black friends. I would stand up for there rights for the black men if they wanted to play Baseball. I played Baseball and it changed all the black peoples mood at all of it. I would try to play the best I could so I could stay playing Baseball.
In my book Dragonlance: Dragons of Winter Night Silvara made the decision to show her companions her shadow showing that she was a silver dragon. She did this by having Gilthanas hold a torch up to her showing her shadow on the wall. She was taking a risk because they might have seen her as an enemy and if they saw her as an enemy they could have killed her. Another bad side to this decision they could have had a lot of questions that she couldn't answer because of her oath. Silvara took the risk because she felt that it was the only way to get them to trust her. If I were Silvara I would have made the same decision because it was the right thing to do. She wanted their trust and it was the only thing she could do to get it. Trust is important to me because if you can trust people and people can trust you it makes friends. To be trusted also means people have your back and they will watch out for you as you watch out for them. Honesty is also important in this situation because there's a better chance that you will be trusted if you are honest. Silvara was honest by telling the truth and showing her shadow. The result was that she was trusted by her companions.
