The book that I'm reading is Allegiant. In this book Tris has to choose to leave the city and go to this place were she knows nothing about.
If I were to choose what I would do I would choose to go leave just like her. I think it would be hard to choose that but I would choose to leave the city.
I feel If I would choose to leave the city (like she did) I don't think that this would not change the story any but If I were to not leave the city it would change the whole story.
This would be similar because I had choose what she choose so it would not change the story. My actions could change the story because I would be a little hesitant to leave but Tris wasn't. This might have changed the story a little bit but not a whole lot.
In my book Waiting For You, Nash had to make a decision about giving his crush a letter or having his friend Jordan give her the letter. Nash wanted Jordan to do it because he scared that when he gave her the letter she would laugh at him and would say things about him liking her and that how she's to good for him. Nash made a final decision that he was just going to let Jordan give her the letter. If I was in Nash's shoes in this situation I would give my crush the letter myself. It would be similar because I would be scared that my crush would say rude things. Like what Nash was worried about. It would be different because I would give my crush the letter myself. It would change the actions in the story because I would be able to see my crushes face when they read it. I could also talk to them and see if they actually like me.

My books name is Things Not Seen. Bobby wakes up and takes a shower and washes the fog off of the mirror, all he saw was his towel floating. If I was in his shoes I would be all depressed, because if I was disappeared I would do anything to make my soul come back in live, and so I can go to school and do everything a human can do. I would have told my parents that i'm all disappeared, and nobody can see me just like he did but I wouldn't be angry and drop my chair down I would have moved the chair.
Describe a decision made by the main character. If you were in his/her shoes what decisions would you make in the same situation? How would it be similar? How would it be different? How would your actions change the story?
Right now I am reading Little House On The Prairie and the main character Laura decided that she was going to go exploring in the woods because she saw a different or queer tunnel in the grass. Laura found out when she went down into the tunnel it was never ending. She did not want to go very far away from the tent, so she went just a little ways. When she got so far she felt a little queer, like someone was behind her. Then she looked behind her shoulders, nothing was their so she turned around and hurried along the path back to the tent. When she got back to the tent she told her Pa about the path and he just said it was just a old path.
If I was in Laura's shoes I would have not gone exploring without someone with me. If I had gone exploring by myself and on that same path I would have probably been a little scared too. I think that I would have done something different than Laura because I am probably not brave as Laura is in situations, like that one.
I also think that I would have handled that situation a little similar like Laura because Laura went and told her Pa about the path and if I had taken the path by myself I would have probably hurried back to the tent too if I thought something was following me or I felt queer about the path.
I think that my decision would change the story by not letting me explore the woods and the path because if I would have taken the tunnel or path like Laura had I probably would not have had discovered as many things as Laura probably had when she took the path. Also if I had taken the path then I would be able to tell my Pa about even though he would have probably already knew about it because Laura's Pa did. I also think my decision changed the story by making me more safe because a bear or a wolf could have gotten Laura even though she did get eaten by any animals, like a bear or a wolf.
I think Laura is very brave to go exploring in the woods by herself, I am just not that brave because you do not know what is out their that could get you. I would make a different decision than Laura even though in some ways it is similar.
In my book, Sisters Grimm, Sabrina, a twelve year old girl who lives in a land with fairy tale characters, and has a sister named Daphne. They are fairy tale detectives and are on a stakeout, for the fifth night in a row. They are in a toy store, owned by Jappeto, Pinocchio's father. There has been a robbery and the Grimms, Sabrina, Daphne and Granny Relda are investigating. They brought their great dane, Elvis, along too! Sabrina is tired and angry because she hasn't gotten hardly any sleep in four nights in a row and isn't up to being up late again. She is off guard. The girls hear something, over by some dolls. They ask Elvis to smell anything that isn't supposed to be there. He smelled, then barked, signalling to the girls there was something in the store that wasn't supposed to be in the store. Daphne told Elvis to go get the bad guy. Sabrina didn't realize that Elvis' leash was tangled around her foot. Elvis dragged her around the store because she wasn't aware. This caused the security guard to come in and they had to make him forget that he saw the policeman turns into a little pig!
I have to say that I wouldn't have been in a great mood either. Hardly getting any sleep for four nights in a row would take a very large toll on my attitude and my function. But unlike Sabrina I would realize that people needed me and I need to be alert and ready to do my part. I would have made sure that I was ready to do my part. I would've been a help to the situation instead of everything going hey-wire!
If I were Sabrina I would've taken my part and been alert. This would've caused a lot less commotion. The security guard probably would've stayed outside of the store and wouldn't have had to get dust blown in his face to make him forget about everything that happened. If I had been Sabrina I would've taken my part seriously.
This is what I think what would happen if I were my character or in my character's shoes!
The main character in my book (Timescape) Xander, made a decision of going to help his Dad go get David from another world. If I were in his shoes I wouldn't have gone because before his Dad left he said don't come help me. And parents always have a reason for something. My action would probliy change the story because Xander, David and their Dad would not all be in a different world. Also their sister Toria at the house would probliy be flipping out right now because they are all gone.
In my book Insurgent the main character Tris made the decision to follow two people into the woods without the other people noticing. She was dead silent and was listening to what the other people were talking about. If I were to be in the same position I would do the same thing Tris did. With the fight between Erudite and Abnegation I would see if they were talking out it.
If I were to do anything different I would probably get Tobias (Tris's friend) to come with me. I would want him to be there because he is really smart and he could figure out what they're saying means. If I would do this the story would change a little because whenever Tris gets back she sits down for breakfast and Tobias walks in. Then Tris tells Tobias to come to her room. When they're in her room Tris tells him about what she overheard.
In my book (Amber House) the main character (Sarah) decided to look for diamonds in her grandma's house with some other kid (Jackson). So they went into the attic to look and Jackson went to get tape to tape the box's after they opened them and looked through them. Sarah stayed in the attic and saw a ghost and the ghost threatened to hurt her.
If I were Sarah I would decide not too look for the diamonds. Sarah took a risk deciding to look for the diamonds and I didn't. If I were Sarah and decided not to look for diamonds then I would never of seen a ghost that threatened to hurt me.
In The Rangers apprentice The sorcerer of the North Will becomes a Ranger and he has to go undercover as a traveling musician. But he has to choose between his friend and his mission. But He chooses both. If I was Will I would save my freind and forget about the mission. But I still would try after to complete the mission but I think that if I was Will I would try to save the castle from sorcery but I still would've saved my friend.
I would have stayed inside and not went outside and he never would have got hit by the ball so there wouldn't be such a big chance that he would miss try outs. He might even make the team if he wouldn't of missed the ball. I also probably would have kept my mask on because he was just playing back yard baseball. Then he never would have got hit by the ball and I would be able to go to try outs.

The book I am reading is Vet volunteers and the main character is Zoe and a decision is that she has to work with a teacher who isblind she is trying to help the teacher and the guide to train the dog to help the teacher because the guide dog is new and he does not know what he is doing.
One of the problems the character faces in the book Demons And The Underworld is John goes to the underworld to get his wife back. He has to face many challenges such as being able to find his wife Mary and get her back from the devil and trying to figure out how to pay the ferryman. But he makes a deal with the devil he could have his wife if he promised not to look at her till they got out of the underworld but he turns and looked at her while he was out of the underworld while she was in the underworld. And her soul was trapped in the underworld for all eternity I would have made the decision to wait till she was completely out of the underworld before I made the decision to look at her.
Its similar because we would be making the same decision to look at her and its different because we made the same decision but we would have looked at different times and had different actions happen. It would change the story to where Mary would not have had to spend eternity in the underworld and would have came back to earth.
