A Picture to Remember

Suddenly a taxi hit the back of her bike. She fell from the bike onto the front of the taxi and then down onto the road. (p.7)
     This story is about a women named Cristina who works at the museum. One day, when she rode her bike, she heard the sound of police cars. And she looked a man in the car lifted up his gun. He and another man in his car are bank robbers.
Suddenly, she was hit by taxi, and she saw nothing, she felt nothing. From this accident, two bank robbers were going to search Cristina because they want to kill her.
     I think this book is very scary for me. But Cristina didn't want to lose unlucky accident. I really think she is very strong. I want to be like her.

One Day

One Friday evening in March, at six o'clock, people were coming home from work as usual. The schoolchildren were already at home. (p.6)

     The first time I took this book and I glanced over, I thought some stories are gathered into one book. But it was not true. This book has four stories, and each story has two paragraph.
      The first story is about Partner. I think it is very difficult to understand the feeling because I have not loved anyone like this story. I thought everyone is happy to have partner. But I learned there are some problem between boyfriend and girlfriend. The second story is about married couple. The husband wants to start his restaurant but it is not easy. The wife wants to help him, but it is not easy, too. After I read this story, I want to help my important person. The third story is about strange love. I couldn't understand this story. I don't like this story, well. The fourth story is about family. It was really good story, I think.

The Double Bass Mystery

"Penny, we've got a bit of a problem." "What kind of a problem?" "Well, it's your double bass," "It isn't here. It isn't in Barcelona." (p.5)
           I read the double bass mystery last week. The double bass means Contra bass in Japan. I know the double bass because I join the brass band club in my university, so the double bass is the part of my brass band sounds. So I was interested in this book at the first time I saw it. but this story is not important to play the musical instrument because this story is about a problem with the main character named Penny.            One day, the Barston Symphony Orchestra in England came to Barcelona. but Penny's double bass was not there. So Penny was looking for her double bass. But this story's personal relationship is too difficult to understand for me. So I don't understand well. It include some betrayal, jealousy, and killing. It is like a Japanese afternoon's drama.…

Within High Fences

 But that night, my life started to change.(p.5)
      This book is written about asylum seekers. At first, I couldn't understand this word. So I searched the word after I finish reading this book.And after that, I think I have to think about the issue.
      In this book, it was written about asylum seekers' face like "Some of them were very sad. Some were just tired and afraid". Many people wait to know who can stay in Great Britain. When they can't allowed to stay here, they have to leave.
      In Japan, It is not so big issue about asylum seekers. So I don't know about the detail. But through the story, I have to know about the issue, and I want to help them some day.

"I can be a man. I can learn to walk with my head up, and to shout when I talk," she says. "And I can wear soldier's clothes." (p.9)        I chose this book because I want to watch this movie by Disney. I already know that movie's song. I really like the song. I listen to the song every night.

I think she is wonder woman!
