Down in the dumps
This quote is one of my favorites because it's every teens famous last words.
"where are my chips?"
because we've all been with that friend that never gets you the right thing
"I'll have that bottle"
because when ever you hear a cop say this you know your screwed
Apparently when your in a mob you just want to set stuff on fire
"I just washed those "
cause when a mob breaks in and throws dishes that what you think
Face to Face
A:"probably not, considering i was caught on tape or at least my shirt was and i ended up losing my job"
Q:"Daniel i turn to you if you could have prevented one thing that came from this mob what would it be?"
A:"Ummm, i think it would be stopping the rioting mob from destroying Abbi's store "
Q:"Mia, why weren't you more caring to your brother Daniel after he was injured from the mob. Plus he tried stopping the mob and was doing his best to keep nick out of trouble, yet you still were mad at him?"
A:"honestly because i told him not to go in the first place and he didn't listen to me"
Q:"well Mia its not like he knew it was going to happen and its not like he wasn't trying to get home, he had no way to"
A:"Well still I'm just mad at the fact that i had a bad feeling about the whole thing yet he chose not to listen, so what ever happened to him is on him"
Q:"Nick back to you ,why on earth would you wear your work shirt to a football game that was kind of a poor decision on your part don't you think?''
A:" At the time i guess i was thinking. looking back now i wouldn't wear it because that ended up being the main reason for losing my job"
Q:"Daniel, do you think after the riot and after everything that went down do you think your father lost some respect for you in the end"
A:"I wish I could say no but honestly yes because of the fact he trusted me to be responsible and in a sense i let him down and it looks bad on him because he is a cop"
Q:"Alright dad your up, knowing you told Daniel to be responsible and safe do you feel he listened to you and at least try to do the right thing knowing what you know?"
A:"Well yes and no, i honestly didn't agree with the whole thing in the first place, no i don't. That being said what he tried doing in the situation made me proud and the question earlier about me losing respect , i wouldn't say that i was more just disappointed "
Q:"Daniel do you think if circumstances were different , would you and Abbi have meet each other? "
A:"I think so , and if things would have happened different i think we would have had a good relationship together"
Q:"Abbi, after witnessing a mob break into your store trashing and being injured in the process what was you first thought when you saw Daniel?"
A:" I thought to myself that this is how I'm going to die. after meeting him though i felt safer "
Q:" do you think you'll e able to reopen your grand fathers store ?"
A:" The truth is no which is sad thats all we had but we will find a way to keep going"

Riot Act started off okay, but then picked up once the riot happened. The riot portion of this book was intense and action-packed. Then ending was lacking closure, but all in all this was an entertaining read and one I'd recommend.
This is an excellent book for reluctant readers. it is fast paced and easy to read. it won the honour of being the book of the month for our schools online bookclub.
fab book. Highly recomnend ! Good easy read for teens of today!
I love this book! :)
