Character that Relates to Me
BMS Summer Reading Assignment - Adriano Lopez
I Relate to...
The character from the novel that I think I relate the most is Leader because I feel I have a gift to be able to plan ahead and see what might come next on my daily life events. For example, in page 19, chapter 2 of the book, Leader talks about seeing something in the Forest but could not tell if it was good or bad, at least not for the moment. This resembles a lot of the events that happens to me, like when I was moving to Forney last month. I was able to tell I was going to move to this city but was not able to tell when. In the meantime, I was able to prepare mentally for any challenge that may arise. One challenge in particular is the early morning football practices. I knew it was going to be difficult getting used to waking up at 5:30am so I started to go to bed early two weeks prior in order to adjust my body for the change. The end result was that I was able to adjust my sleeping time and I get to football practice on time every morning.
Another trait I have that is similar to that of Leader is caring. In page 154, Leader shows care and compassion for others by going out to the Forest to help Matty and Kira. I am similar to that because I care for other people. I would help anyone who may need my help without hesitation.
