“Just a minute I’m almost done with this page.” I shouted probably the whole summer. In language arts class we studied Lone Star books. We had to read one and mine was The Roar by Emma Clayton. It was a really good book. Our class had to discuss symbols for our book. The symbols were theme, plot, character, and setting.
My favorite character was Ellie. She was so caring and kind. Her symbol is her pet monkey Puck. Ellie cared about her family and Puck. Since she was kidnapped the only thing that Ellie had was Puck.

They also believed that they had destroyed all the animals while they were actually living there!! Some people like Mal Gorman found out, but it was too late. The people were too selfish so they sent them back to Future London with really high jobs.
Finally, the plot of The Roar is war which I symbolized with a war tank. Once some kids like Mika and Ellie figured out what was on the other side of the wall they were furious! Both sides of the Wall prepared for war. The good side of the wall had nuclear bombs and animal...
