Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s a mixture of love, romance, action, and suspense. The book is about a girl named Evie that was saved by the IPCA (International Paranormal Containment Agency) when she was 8. The IPCA is a place where they take all the paranormals they find and keep them in comfinment, they are more like hostages. They keep them there so they don’t do wrong. For example if a vampire bites a human they have ankle trackers that can feel the change in there body temperature. It shoots holy water into them and they get burnt or die. So Evie is pretty much the one who goes out and catches the paranormal’s.

~Heres an expert from the story~

“Wait!-did you!-You just yawned!” The vampire’s arms

raised over his head in a classic Dracula pose, dropped to his sides.

He pulled his exaggerated white fangs back behind his lips.

“What, imminent death isn’t exciting enough for you?”

“Oh, stop pouting. But really, the window peak? The pale skin? The black cape Where did you even get

that thing, a costume store?”

 He raised himself to his full height and glared icily down at me.

“I’m going to suck the life from your pretty white neck.”

“You could try. And I can tase you again so hard you wouldn’t wake up for 6 hours, giving you even less time to make it to Romania.”

Ok, I don’t wanna ruin the book for you, but I definitely recommend this book for people who love romance and action.

DRAGON BALL (ドラゴンボール Doragon Bōru) Tale #1- #2 REVIEW

   DRAGON BALL  (ドラゴンボールDoragon    Bōru)

  Tale #1- #2

  Written by Akira Toryiama

  Review By 7thdragonwriter

This book begins as the main protagonist, Son Gokuu, a boy who was born with a tail, was doing his daily chores such as hunting and chopping wood using his Kung-Fu abilities. He originally lived with his adoptive guardian whom he called “grandpa”, but after he died,  Gokuu was left to live on his own with nothing left to remember his “Grandpa” by except for but a strange sphere with four red stars on it. Gokuu knew so little of the world since he lived in the woods all of his life. It wasn’t until he met a girl named Bulma that he learned what life was like outside of his country home. You see, Bulma was searching for these Mystical orbs known as the “Dragon Balls”. If you collect all 7, you can summon a dragon that grants you one perfect wish. Bulma sees that Gokuu’s four-star ball is indeed a Dragon Ball. Once she tells Gokuu what the Dragon Balls are, they go together on a quest to find all seven Dragon Balls and become a martial arts champion.

Overall, this book is great! There is a lot of humor, action, and drama. Compared to the various movies and television shows, this book series is so much better. However, the humor is sometimes not understandable due to the fact that some themes are only under- standable to the Japanese public. This is a good story and I am looking forward to writing more articles about it.

On September 14, 2011, in Utah a motorcyclist and a car collided into each other. This made a fiery crash and as they crashed the motorcyclist somehow got stuck under the car.

Food

I love eating food. I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t eat food. I love Oreo ice cream. I also love soul food and seafood.

I think shrimp, lobster and crabs are the best seafood’s. I love when my family has seafood feast. I could eat seafood every day without getting sick. When I eat a lot of seafood my mom says don’t eat to much or you will get sick. Just because she cant eat a lot doesn’t mean I cant. Just to think about it makes me hungry. I wish they made seafood at school. Every time I go to Red Lobster I order the ultimate seafood feast.

Another thing I love to eat is ice cream. My favorite ice cream is Oreo ice cream. When ever I go to Dairy Queen. Its really good when its a very hot day in the middle of the summer. It doesn’t cost much so that makes it to high for people to bye it. Its really good when you had extra oreo’s.

The final thing I love is to eat is soul food. Ribs,corn bread,macaroni,collard green’s,potato salid,and corn. That also makes me hungry thinking about it. My. aunts are really good at cooking. Every weekend my aunts cook a lot of food. It is really good. I try to learn but its just to much to keep up with.

Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 GAME REVIEW

KA… ME… HA… ME… HA!!!!

This is the most famous martial arts technique in the DBZ universe. In this technique, a fighter will release a shockwave of blue energy from his hands toward an opponent. It can only work if you say KA ME HA ME… and extend your hands right as you say the final HA. After I read about it in the Dragon Ball Manga, I have always wanted to do this awesome move. It was not until I bought the Budokai Tenkaichi Video Game that I was actually able to! In this Wii video game, you can perform all of the techniques on the show  and manga, by simply doing all of the correct movements:

But there are many other things you need to do. This game is a fighting game! That means you need to punch, kick, and SCREAM (Not really). You need to beat up your opponents and win the BUDOKAI TENKAICHI MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENT!

This is a great game! With all of the actions and movements used throughout the game,  you actually feel like you are fighting alongside Goku! Besides the tournaments in the game, there is also a story mode based on the show. DBZ BT3 is the best game in the world!

Yes Or No to Cell Phones at School

YES OR NO to cell phone usage at school?  What do you think about this?  Cell phones have become something that most teens keep with them at all times. Some parents want the phone to be with their kids at all times for safety reasons.  But teachers think it a distraction to the class.  Hear both sides to find out if you like of idea of Phones in school, or no phones in school.

YES  

Cell phones are things student should keep with them during their classes. Why, because say if they had a project the students could look up info for the project. If the teacher was doing a review, the student could record on there smart phone of what the teacher is saying. Or if the teacher is writing on the board about a lesson, the student could just take a picture of the writing on the board.

NO

When phones are at school, students are distracted and are not doing thier work. People text each other during class. When rumors start sometimes, they are by text. Then we have the people with the smart phones who are saying rude things on Facebook or Twitter, about other people, that is called Cyberbullying.  All of these things can happen and people say mean things about what happens at school. Phones are NOT a good thing to have at school.

What side are you on?
