I am reading If I stay and it has a total of 256 pages and I am on page. National childhood depression relates to this because every childs worst nightmare is losing one of their parents. When Mia is in a coma she knows that her parents are dead and that is kind of the reason she isn't out of a coma yet. She doesn't know if she wants to live without her parents.

Today I started Carrie, it has 199 pages and I stopped on page 48.

National Childhood Depression Day connects with Carrie. She is always picked on, because she is unattractive, weird, and fat. She's gotten used to it, and let's it happen. One day, she is picked on in the showers at locker room, and the door inevitably slams, alerting the teacher. It has been hinted that Carrie is very depressed throughout the novel.

I am on page 310 of 374 in The Maze Runner. This book could relate to children depression day because the story is kind of depressing. These kids have almost not memories of who they are and where they came from. This alone would be depressing, let alone being stuck in the middle of a maze that has wild grievers trying to kill you. Despite the depressing events, the kids have to get through it to survive.

I am reading Among the Brave and am on page 52 of 230. I just finished Among the Barons.

I am going to write about child depression. True is an illegal child, so he is forced to constantly hide. He gets depressed anytime he thinks of his dad and how he needed to hide even around him. He made one heroic act in his life, and now everybody depends on him. If he messes it up, it will put him into a lot of depression and fear.

I finished reading Don't Get Caught. I am currently reading The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting. This book has 327 pages and I stopped on page 125.
The main character in my book can sense dead bodies and killers. She has to deal with her discoveries and face her feelings. Her discoveries often lead to her feeling depressed about the fate of the young girls who were killed. She also feels depressed because she wants to find the killer and bring justice to his victims. She puts too much pressure on herself causing her to feel depressed.

I am reading The List by Siobhan Vivian. I got to page 21 of 332. I finished 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher today.

National Childhood Depression Awareness Day: I'm going to use 13 Reasons Why for this response. This book is about a girl that has gone through a bunch of different events, that have effected her. She doesn't feel that she belongs anywhere. She is depressed. She felt alone. Hannah tried to reach out as best she could, but it didn't help. This holiday relates to the book because Hannah was going trough depression at a young age. After her death, the school she went to set up posters, and started to be more aware of suicide.

The name of my book is all fall down, It has 309 pages in it and also stopped at page 15 today.

National Lost Sock Memorial Day I guess it could kinda go with my book. The person in my book is a girl and nobody believes what she says so I guess you can say she is lost. With every word she says they think its flex and don't believe her stories. But she says with every story there is a deep deep meaning behind it. But no-one wants to listen to her.

I finished A Walk to Remember and am now reading The Chance. I stopped on page 48 of 315.

My book is all about how when you grow up you lose your sense of wonder and change. In the book right now, Ellie and Nolan are young and still innocent and oblivious to the real world. Later on though, I think that Ellie and Nolan are going to lose their friendship and each other. I think that Ellie will become a cynical person and lose her hope and innocence, while Nolan I am unsure about. They both have a lot to lose by Ellie's situation at home and how it plays out.

I am currently reading Sometimes It Lasts by Abbi Glines. The book has 268 pages and I stopped on page 132.

My book has two main characters Eva and Cage. Eva thinks that Cage did something really bad, so she breaks up with him. After she dumps him, Cage goes into a very deep stage of depression. He just sits in his room with the door locked and cries and pucks. I really hope that Eva will let Cage explain. Cage is losing reason to live, so I am hoping Eva will let him explain what actually happened.

I'm currently reading "Oblivion," by Anthony Horowitz. I'm on page 251 out of 590. I wouldn't say that the depression in this book is overwhelming, but is present. IN this story the characters are chosen by the universe to fight the Old Ones. That leads some of the weaker ones to lose hope because they don't want to be there. A great example would be Scott, he was chosen and decided to join the bad side because he wanted to be on the "winning side." That eventually causes his mind to be easily tricked and ruins the circle of five.

I am reading The Graveyard Book and I am page 172 out of 307.
The main character in my book, Ethan, had a depressing childhood. His family was murdered and when he was toddler, he crawled out of the crib. He ran away to a graveyard and was raised by ghosts. He didnt have friends or other family. He was very lonely and depressed as child.
