Esperanza Rising

Dear readers,

   "Our land is alive, Esperanza, " said papa, taking her small hand as they walked through the gentle slopes of the vineyard. Leafy green vines draped the arbors and the grapes were ready to drop. Esperanza was six years old and loved to walk with her papa through the winding rows, gazing up at him and watching his eyes dance with love for the hand.

   "This whole valley breathes and lives," he said, sweeping his arms toward the distant mountains that guarded them. "It gives us the grapes and then they welcome us."




I read Esperanza Rising because, the cover really made the book look really interesting. I recommend this book to the people that really read with emotion. I also recommend this book to people that love reading books. I give this book a rate of five stars.

Last Week

Dear diary,

   Can you believe it, we were successful again! We can still keep going on our voyage. But the bad news is that I just can't seem to get rid of the scurvy. Although we still have a good pinch left of luck, Caleb and Raymon have spotted land. Which means they get money.  The bad news is that I don't get money, not even a dollar!So while some hours pass by we finally settle in on the land. But here is the bad news, we spotted some people and they started coming close to us. We had to decide weather we got the weapons out, send one of your crew members to try and talk to them, or just ignore them to see what they would do before we die.

The most disgusting day

Dear journal ,
    "Hhhuuu, we have been here out at sea for four weeks already." As I walk out of my room a stiff smells starts spreading around the whole ship. As I sniff again I realized what the smell was, it was the smell of unwashed body's, and unwashed hair. Know I have to worrier about three things the horrible smell my crew teammate, Samantha, and myself. She has dysentery, and she is almost going to die because of it, and I have scurvy. The only crew mates that are lucky are Caleb and Raymon, they are as health as they can be, for know. Are ship is old and it is wreaking, but worst of all it has little bugs! Well I just have to deal with it. Pretty soon we are going to be out on sea for five weeks. All I need is to get rid of the scurvy and then I will be good and healthy. Then I can live my normal life the scurvy took away from me.
