Sam's Number the Stars Book Diary By Sam

WAR

Bloody smell, foggy air, the area is dead, moisture air, all black air, lots loud noises that sounds like firecracker.

scared because they could have died or got hurt.

COMMUNITY

I think someone that is by your side through ups and downs. A neighbor is someone who cares for you and would do anything. A neighbor is a friend.

Not going outside. I would stay very close with my family and friends. I would be on the lookout 24/7. I would feel scared and just have chills everyday. I would do nothing to defend myself unless they come in and attack my family or friends.

NUMBER THE STARS

I think the book will be about a kid who is scared and feels lonely. He or she will try to escape the city but gets captured. I think he or she will have to run away but he never comes back. he or she will be homeless and start counting the stars. Then he or she will try to find her way back but won"t so she gets scared. Then she or he lives with someone else.

Literary Analysis

Mama says, "be one of many." I think this means that be just like the other people. Don't try to outshine everyone or they will notice you. I think she says this so she does not do anything not normal to the solders like running or playing around. Just walk normally home and don't let them remember you.

Annemerie felt kind of confused and curious because she didn't know what she would do. She wasn't sure she would be able to die for someone.

i think it was different because in chapter 3 she wasn't sure she would be able to protect the jews. Then in chapter 5 she knew that she had to.

they are really close friends and if she dropped the necklace they would have been caught. So she held it super tight to make sure it doesn't drop.

What would it look like for denmark and/or the Johansens to be a bodyguard for the jews?

If Denmark was a bodyguard for Jews it would mean they will have to fight back even for the little things. That they will not listen to there rules. They might run away.

Prediction

We just read where is Ms Hirsch and it was about her shop that got closed by the Germans. The reason that happened is because they were Jews and the Germans don't like Jews.

I predict that they will fight back. Or they will hide from them. I think that because some of them are scared and some are not.

We just read chapter 14 and Annemarie's mom had escorted the Rosen’s to the boat and when she came back she broke her ankle. Also Mr. Rosen forgot a note and Annemarie has to go and return it to him. She got caught by soldiers when she was almost there. Therefore I predict the officer’s dog is going to find the note and give it to the soldier and he will figure out what is happening and she will be arrested and the others will be hunted down.

Conflict

MAN VS MAN

Annemarie parents were trying to decide who will go up to uncle henrik's house then they decided the mom will.

Annemarie learned that parents argue sometimes and have to step up sometimes and that's what they both wanted to do but only one could go so the mom went.

I know this example is that type of conflict because they were kind of arguing who should go up to uncle Henrik's house.

MAN VS SELF

Ellen said she wish she knew where her parents were. so that means she was feeling all kinds of emotions sad, worried, probably mad.

Ellen and Annemarie probably learned that not everything goes your way there has to be bad things in your life. She also learned that staying positive is better than being negative.

I know this is that type of conflict because Ellen just felt like she wanted to be alone she would be sad most of the time she was probably sad that she was a jew too. She just didn't feel like herself anymore throughout the book when her parents left.

MAN VS SOCIETY

Peter was part of the Resistance and it was basically him against the Germans because he was running around doing dangerous stuff like giving secret news papers and sneaking jews out of Denmark.

Peter and everyone in the Resistance learned that it was a risky job but it was worth it if it helps Denmark. Everyone was being brave in and out the Resistance.

I know that example is a type of conflict because peter and the group he was in were all secretly doing stuff and the german solders didn't know until they caught people. So it was the Resistance vs the German solders.

MAN VS NATURE

Annemarie's mother fell when she was running back. she tripped over a tree root and broke her ankle.

That you have to be careful of your surroundings and be aware of things out in nature. Nature won't move for you you have to move.

I know that example is that type of conflict because trees come from nature and she tripped over a tree root. It's not the trees fault it's Annemarie's mother fault.

Theme

FRIENDSHIP

What FRIENDSHIP means - Friendship means when your friend feels down and you cheer him or her up. Friendship is about having each others back no matter what it takes. Friendship is being there for each other. (Me, Eli, Ben)

How this book showed friendship is Annemarie helped out Ellen by taking off her necklace when the solders came. Also Ellen helped Annemarie in the 1st or 2nd chapter when they got stopped by a solder. Throughout the whole book everyone was there for each other when they needed it the most.

An example from the beginning is when Ellen and Annemarie tried to cheer up Kirsti because Kirsti thought her shoes were ugly but they tried to comfort her. Also at the end everybody was helping the Rosen's escape Denmark so the solders won't keep chasing them.

Wait for me wailed little Kirsti, left behind, but the two older girls weren't listening.
