The Book that will Blow you away...

Blood Red Road, Moira Young

Why give up when you have a chance?

Moira Young wrote a mind blowing book that can’t be put down. “Blood Red Road” is an adventurous science fiction book. This book is about a girl named Saba who sets off on a journey to save her brother from Pinch (the evil king). Saba’s family (dad, brother, and sister) used to live in Sliverlake before Lugh got captured and before Saba’s father died. During this journey, Saba meets some amazing people (The Hawks and Jack). The reason why the tonton’s captured Lugh was so the evil king could stay alive. The main conflict is Lugh getting captured by the tontons. Lugh was going to get killed on Midsummer Eve. Saba goes to many different places during this journey. She goes to Crosscreek, where Saba meets her mother’s friend, Mercy. Mercy told Saba some information about the king and the tontons. She told that when Saba’s twin brother, Lugh, was born, their neighbour got very excited and left two minutes later. During this story Saba finds out that the neighbour was actually a tonton who watched Lugh since he was born. Their neighbour was the one who captured Lugh. Saba and her sister Emmi got kidnapped by the king’s parents. Saba and Emmi never knew that they were the king’s parents. So the king’s parents send Saba to a cage where people have to fight each other. Saba was stuck there for about 1 ½ months. Saba then met a group of girls called “The Hawks”. The Hawks helped Saba escape from the cage. She also meets Jack. Then all of them escape from the cage and everyone help Saba get her brother back. The conflict was resolved by Saba going to Freedom fields and getting her brother. Saba did get her brother but Saba’s sister, Emmi, got kidnapped by the king. The king forced Saba to go with the king and then he’ll give Emmi back. At the right time The Hawks come and start a fight. Saba kills the king and everything is back to normal. I would give this book 5 stars overall.

Say Something (the song)

The reason why I choose this song was because Say Something is basically about a person losing someone. This song is relevant because Saba lost her brother and went on a journey to find him. This song is talking about how a person lost someone and how he/she is noting without them. Same thing happened with Saba, every time Saba was thinking about Lugh and how she will get him back. One of the lines say "Anywhere I would've followed you", this line relates a lot to Saba. This is because Saba promised Lugh that wherever Lugh went, Saba will follow him. Saba did do that , she did follow him and found and rescued Lugh. Therefore this song is very relevant to "Blood Red Road".

Lyrics for the song

"Say Something"

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble & fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye

Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
And anywhere I would've followed you (Ooh-oh)
Say something, I'm giving up on you

Say something, I'm giving up on you
Say something...
