My Shoes are Haunted!

Chapter 2

So, now I am going to tell you about some of the things my shoes did to me.

One day, as I was walking to school I went to cross a road and as I was about to run across my shoes stuck to the ground and then forced me to cross right in front of a car!  I was so lucky that the car  swerved to the side away from me, otherwise I would have been dead.

When I got to school I was late for P.E and my teacher yelled his head off about tardiness and how you should never be late, so my shoes took control of my legs and made me kick him right in the  face!!! (Just between you and me it was actually quite fun kicking him!)

I was in sooo much trouble so I tried to pull the stupid shoes off but they stuck fast.

I was sent to the Principal's office and he was supposed to think of a suitable punishment for me, but he only suspended me, which isn't much of a punishment if you ask me, because it's more like a holiday.

That night as I was getting ready for bed I tried to pull the shoes off but once again they wouldn't come off'OH MY GOSHI thought, 'this is not good!'  What will I tell mum?!...

Look for the next chapter soon.

Book Review

The Hunger Games

This story is about a girl called Katniss Everdeen.
Her sister Primrose Everdeen gets called up to be a tribute in the Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games is a big entertainment thing where the Capitol takes two tributes- one girl and one boy from each district (there are 12 districts) and they have to go into an Arena and fight each other to the death and the last tribute standing becomes the victor.

UntitledTo make the story interesting the characters are always doing daring and dangerous things like blowing up the Careers supplies (the careers are the tributes from districts 1, 2 and 4).

Peeta is the most interesting character because he is always doing crazy things like professing his love for Katniss in a public interview.

Katniss is always thinking of winning and how she promised Rue and her sister Primrose that she would try and win for them.

I recommend this book for people who are 10 and older because it's to scary for anyone younger.

My Shoes are Haunted!

Chapter 1

Hi I'm Charlie and I'm going to tell you a story about my shoes.  I swear they are haunted.

Once upon a time...
Wait, hold up, this isn't a fairy tale, It's a flippin' night-mare!!!

So, my shoes are orange and green with black tiger stripes and they have gems sewn into the side.

Now these are definitely not normal fancy shoes they do all sorts of nasty things to you.
When you put them on you can't take them off again for the next twelve hours, they force you to walk where you shouldn't go and when you really need to move they stick to the ground. One good thing about them is that they can also make you fly but only when you really don't want to.

There is only one way to get all the bad spirits out of them and you would think it is really quite easy but it's not because you have to recite a long complicated line and polish the tips with white shoe polish, then you have to wear them for forty eight hours and repeat that for at least ten days in a row.

Look for the next chapter soon.

Katniss's Diary

 6 . 3 . 28
I just got out of the arena and now I have to go straight back in!
The Quarter Quell for this year is that the tributes for the hunger games are taken from the pool of victors that have previously won the games.  The deal has always been that if you won the games you are out of them for life, until now.
The Quarter Quell happens every 25 years and it is when something different happens.  My mother has told us about last time when double the amount of tributes was chosen- two female and two male from each district.  That was when my mentor Haymitch won.  That was the first time that a tribute from district twelve won- and the last for 24 years.
There are two males that can be chosen from district twelve- Haymitch or my fiance Peeta.
If Haymitch is chosen then Peeta will simply volunteer for him but then either him or I will get killed.
I HATE THE CAPITOL!!!!! No, no I shouldn't say that, if the Capitol get their hands on this diary I am dead for sure.
Oh,well I manged to win last time so this time I am going to save Peeta even if it means losing my own life.
