Where is the concept of change in the book you are reading on your own?  What is happening to the characters that is causing them to change, or what can you predict will happen?  Write a paragraph in your Reader's Notebook which covers this topic.  A good lead might be...

There's this character in the book BEFORE THE FALL which I just finished reading.  His name is Scott and he is this artist who saved a kid from a plane crash.  The concept of change shows up with him because he kinda is this lost soul in the beginning of the book with no goals in life.  He goes through some tragic stuff and in the end he seems to want to do something good for the boy he rescued.

  2. In the book the Scorch Trials, there is a teenager named Thomas. The concept of change starts out in the book before. In the book before the Scorch Trials he escapes a maze with his buddies and thinks it's all over. Until in the book Scorch Trials. Where he is released into the Scorch and realizes it's not over yet.

    1. What in the world is Scorch? Is it a place?

      Delete
    2. Yes the Scorch is a place. It is the the area near the equator on Earth except something called the "Sun Flares" occurred and made the Earth very hot and started a sickness that eats the brain. It's called the "Flare". The Flare spread very quickly and it worked in stages. First your brain doesn't work very well and you are a little crazy, then you lose your brain and go really crazy. Then you become mutated and lose you nose and other body parts, you become MUCH stronger, and you go completely psycho.

  4. There's a character in my book CHANTARELLE witch I'm almost finished is named Chase.He's one of the main characters in my book.In my opinion he's the best character in the book.He has to find the water keeper in Exor.What he doesn't know is that his brother and his friend and Melorians and a melorian called seaborne.One way he has changed is he knows more about Ayda and he's more skilled.

  5. There is this character in the book and he is called Greg. And the book is called Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days. Greg is always playing video games and he sleeps all the time. He also dose not want to go out side. He is not an overachiever and he does'int do nothing. And I predict that he will end up like his brother. He will sleep more he will be in a a lot of trouble and he will start a band and rebel against his parents.

  7. There's this character in this book FOUND which I got done just a couple of days ago. His name is Jonah and he is adopted and lives with his mother,dad and his sister Katherine. The reason why I chose Jonah is because at the beginning he doesn't really care about the fact that he is adopted, then he becomes obsessed because his friend Chip and himself are getting mysterious letters and they both become obsessed to find out where they came from, then Jonah tries to forget about the letters and the survivors and witnesses list they saw.

  9. There's this character in this book called Hero, he thought he knew his father but he didn't. He is four teen and already a super hero. A plane crashes and as it said in the book "Everything he knew about his father crashes along with the plane." As you get more into the book this character changes. He changes from being a regular teen to becoming a hero. Also he changes from thinking he knows his father but he never did.
