Remembering the Good Times
We read the book Remembering the Good Times by Richard Peck in our langue arts class this year. I dislike this book but also I liked it at the same time. I liked the book because it was very inspiring. This book inspired me to be happy with the life I have and that you should take things to serious because not all the time its going to work out. I liked it because it took three different personalities of people and put them together as friends. I liked that because it shows that you can be friends with anybody and you dont have to just be friends with the people who have the same amount of money as you or like the same things as you.
But mostly I disliked this book because I didnt like how the story went along. I didnt like how Kate got put into her family. How she had all the responsibilities around the house and had to take care of her great-grandma and her mom and herself all at the same time. Her mom was never home and when she was she was to busy with herself to talk to Kate or help around the house. I also didnt like how in the story Skeeter, the troublemaker was always getting into trouble and nobody tried to stop him. If there was a Skeeter in my classes I would be so mad because I dont like when people act like that. But the part that I mostly didnt like in the story was when Scotty died in the murder and then Travis committed suicide. I dont think that Travis should have died. He had such a good life ahead of him but he just couldnt handle all the pressure that he was putting on himself. All in all I think it was a very good book to read.
