The Bridge Home: The letters of gold

Kết quả hình ảnh cho the bridge home

The Bridge Home is a fictional but easy to relate book, written by American- Indian author Padma Venkatraman. She graduated from William and Mary University in Oceanology and she’s now working in Rhode Island University. She likes writing just as much as Science and Maths. She’s also known for her other famous works such as A Time To Dance, Island’s End and Climbing The Staircase. The book was released by Nancy Paulsen Books just last year. And just recently, this book just took the Golden Kite Award for Middle Grade/ Young Reader Fiction. Congratulations!

The book tells the story of Viji and Rukku, two siblings who manage to escape from their abusive father. Along the way they’ve met many dangerous people, but also really kind people as well . These kind people will join Viji and Rukku on a journey to freedom, the freedom in which pays.

For me, The Bridge Home is like I said before – an easy to relate book – because it tells you the current problems of India, even if the setting gives you 20th century vibes. The main characters are sympathetic and the plot is gripping but at the same time very emotional. Overall, nice work ! 4/5

The Sequel

Hello and welcome back to another movie review! Today I have for you guys one of the best movies of the previous year for me and that is Pokemon- Detective Pikachu. It tells a story of a guy named Tim Goodman who is on an adventure of finding his father. But an unexpected turn makes this not just a normal search run.

I must say, the quality of the movie is surprisingly good. I first thought that it was just a real-life version of the original Pokemon series, with no upgrades to the already good plot of the series . But apparently no! This time, director Rob Letterman has decided to take the adventure to the next level by adding other elements, the best example being the Torterra Garden.  Good job!

And you know a movie’s good when it features a quality roster. Ryan Reynolds, the same guy who played in Deadpool, voice- acted Detective Pikachu, one of our main characters of the movie. Tim Goodman, the son of Dectective Harry Goodman and the second main character of the movie played by Justice Smith. He also played in the critically- aclaimed Jurrasic World: Fallen World.

Overall, quality movie, but it could have used some extra scenes to make it more dramatic . 4/5 for me.

Photo essay about me, my school and my friends.

This is me, a typical 7th grade student. Not so typical actually. You see, I’m taller than nearly everybody in the class and not to brag, I’m exceptionally better in English than nearly everybody in the class.

In here, my friends are taking photos for a project of their own. And that means using a class which is having P.E as a background.

Well, this is interesting. My friend Nghia here looks like he’s about to turn into a mouse or some sort.

Here I have a board which is full of sketches about how to protect the environment. Don’t litter guys!

This is the main gate, although I don’t know what Hai Nam is doing.

But we better be quiet!

Although Halloween is over, we still enjoy the mural. So we decided to keep it.

My friend Duong here likes solving Rubik’s cubes, but not me. They are too complicated for me.

You can see that Quan ( the only guy in the photo) is up to no good here…

Remember the rules!

And that’s it. That is my photo essay. Goodbye.

Old School

Hey y’all,this is my first blog, so don’t butch me like a fish.

“Diary of The Wimpy Kid: Old School” was written by Jeff Kinney. Jeff is an American author who is a #1 New York Best Seller author and a five-time Nickeleodeon Kid’s choice awards winner.

He has also written many books, such as “Dog Days” and “Hard Luck”, all came from the same series.

His website, Poptropica, is “a virtual word where kids can travel, play games, compete in head-to-head competitions and communicate safely.”

The genre of the book is Diary & Fiction, which means that the story is a summary of somebody’s life in a certain point in time, mixing with something unreal

The book was first published in 2015, which was also the year when I first learned guitar.

This might sound weird, but the book has no definite setting. The only thing I knew about this was that it was set sometime in 2010. The main character is Greg Heffley, an 11-12 year old kid who is delusional, wimpy, irresponsible and winy.

In a summary, the story goes like this: In September, Greg Heffley’s mum decides to go “Old School”. That means no electronic devices. Unlike most people, he decides to make a living by selling lemonade. It failed. He also tried selling energy water, but it also failed. After that, his grandpa moved in and does some crazy stuff. Things got to a point where his grandpa damaged his son’s car. So he went to a camp (his dad followed). And for what’s next, you need to read the book to find out

Now, this book has some pros and cons. What’s good about it is that it has no definite setting. This makes the audience believe that this could happen on anywhere on anytime. Another thing we should consider is the unique combination of diary and fiction. Also, I want to point out the fact that Greg doesn’t age. The book is a part of a series which reflects early middle school life, therefore, the character has to stay young so that it could sympathize which the young readers. However, my only criticism is that there’s no definite order in the books. Overall, this gets a 4/5* and I would definitely recommend this to kids.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus you own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
