Boy, when you're dead they really fix you up. It was pretty funny, in a way. He just wants to get back what he lost. During the book, Owen tries to catch notorious psychopath in the act of stealing his oreos. And then sometimes, he's indifferent and objective to the notion, like when he sits in the freezing cold park after looking for the ducks and wonders what his family would think and what his funeral would be like if he got pneumonia and died. This book is about a boy name Owen.

The Catcher in the Rye

The book is fun and suspenseful during moments. Ackley went with them on the bus Holden describes a baseball glove. I'm old enough to be your lousy father. Even the gym teacher humiliates Owen in front of his class mate Do you like getting bullied and named fat? His failures cause him to label people that he feels are better than him in order to satisfy himself. Eventually they became good friends. I like the fact that the story is a bit of a mystery, and that at the end of the story there is a twist that reveals the secret of the missing cookies.

But he is a creative genius and invents new things. Then I got the hell out. This book is realistic faction. Plot:the plot starts with Owen at school one day when his oreos are missing at lunch time the oeros are his only blis in life. He also is almost attacked by scavengers at a demolition site.

Slob by Ellen Potter

I do realize that this is a children's book, but I came to this straight off of , which is legit the best book I've read this year, so children's books can be phenomenal. He's flunked out of multiple boarding schools. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. She'd just leave it in the back row. Ackley didn't hear me, though.

Holden Caulfield in The Catcher in the Rye

It's a great middle grade read with potential as a good read-aloud. Nemesis is supposed to bring him back to see who the killer was of his parents. In fact, you could even argue that Salinger made Holden too emotionally mature—that a real sixteen-year-old would never have this level of wisdom, even if he thought he did. I sat next to her once in the bus from Agerstown and we sort of struck up a conversation. My three Oreos were gone.

Owen is full of honesty and tries not to let anything get to him. I scaled this book four stars because I really liked it but I didn't think it was amazing. Based on the title of this book, I expected a look into the struggles that an overweight kid faces at school and in everyday life. She only signed out for nine-thirty, for Chrissake. Practically the whole car was empty, because it was pretty late and all, but she sat down next to me, instead of an empty seat, because she had this big bag with her and I was sitting in the front seat. He's a terrific snob and he won't hardly even talk to you unless you're a big shot or a celebrity or something, but he can really play the piano.

Why does Holden refer to Stradlater as a secret slob

I was wondering if it would be frozen over when I got home, and if it was, where did the ducks go? All the visitors that were visiting the cemetery started running like hell over to their cars. Owen the main character is an overweight twelve year-old boy, but although he may not by physically great, Owen has very high I. I'm not going to join one anyway. A character can speak english very well and Ellen makes this character seem very real. You are powerless against me. Stradlater mentions that he has a date waiting for him but wants to shave.
