My Side (Orca Soundings)
She would do anything to get attention from people and I use to be like that in middle school but I have sense learned it's not important to Be "popular. I enjoyed this book because you really could feel for both characters. Neely was set up to do this prank, she did not know she was going to be participating in this. I feel bad for Neely that she felt like she needed to be popular she would do anything.
Addie has no friends, I really wish that there was more people around Addie. I learned by the end of this book that everyone needs someone, Addie needed someone to cry to after she was targeted. Neely needed someone that will like her for her. Someone where she felt comfortable with where she didn't need to change. View 1 comment.

Aug 12, Megan rated it really liked it Shelves: august , read-in This book is telling about an incident that happened and is told from two different perspectives. The first half is from Addie's, the person most obviously hurt by what happened. I thought her side was touching and so heartbreaking. It was just horrible reading about how mean the kids were towards her. The second half of the story is told from a different person's perspective and I have to say I was surprised by it.

I thought, when I saw who's it was, that I wasn't going to like it at all- but I actually did. It was surprising to learn what that person knew and didn't know and how they weren't as to blame as I had thought.
I do wish the ending had just a bit more to it, but all in all this was a pretty good story. Mar 27, Jayanne C added it. In the book My Side by Norah McClintock, the main character Neely was cyber bullied very badly by her peers at school, to the point where she didn't want to come to school. The book is separated into two sections one where you see two different sides of the story, the side where you see Neelys point of view of the situation and then you get to her ex bestfriend Addie's.

High school housekeeping : My Side is one of the Orca Addie is trying to pull her life back together after being lured into the woods and then having a sack thrown over her head by a knife-wielding, masked person. High school housekeeping : My Side is one of the Orca Soundings series for teens who are working on improving their reading skills. The Lexile level is about grade 5.
Things are not what they seem to be in this little farm town. The author, Norah McClintock, does her usual good job of bringing a lot of story to a very short book. I highly recommend this one for struggling readers. Dec 09, Sherri rated it really liked it Shelves: washyarg-finished. Other students look down on this quiet, shy teen who does not quite fit in, including her pre-high school best friend Neely who has somehow managed to be friends with the popular girls.

A super quick, superficial kind of read. Addie has always been very shy, very reluctant to put herself out there so the switch to a bigger high school even one that includes her best friend Neely is a stressful proposition. But when Neely decides to make a new start, open up and meet people, Addie is left behind. Which makes Addie the weakest of the herd and you all know what happens to the weakest. I feel like this could have been a very good book if it just delved a little more into the A super quick, superficial kind of read.
I feel like this could have been a very good book if it just delved a little more into the characters. On the plus side, I literally read it in less than 2 hours so it's not like I was missing out on other book time. Dec 17, Misha Atai rated it liked it. The book my side is a quick easy read, so I did get a little bored.
The Book had a good plot overall and my favorite past is how the author shows 2 points of views, its more intresting that way. The main character Addie gets kidnapped by her best friend or ex-best friend and totally humilates her in front of the whole school by scaring her. If that isnt intense enough, the author also puts the actual bullys point of view on what happened. What I didnt like is why the book never explained why she The book my side is a quick easy read, so I did get a little bored.
What I didnt like is why the book never explained why she bullied her best friend so It was confusing. I wouldnt recomend this book because of the confusion and how it doesnt really explain that happens. Feb 02, Julie Suzanne rated it liked it Shelves: bullying. Reading level 4. Issues include betrayal, not knowing the truth, bullying, teenage girl manipulation, classism, etc. It's a must-have for a middle school library and it meets the needs of the girls whose reading level excludes them from all of the popular books. Jul 03, Courtney rated it it was ok. I really like where the author was trying to go with this, but there was so much wrong with it.
For starters it was a boring read.
Second the characters were not well developed at all. I just could not get myself to enjoy it. Transitions are hard to follow - maybe because the story is told in such a short amount of pages. I could see it being a challenge for struggling readers which Orca books are often targeted to. Nov 15, Jessie rated it liked it. Oct 22, Laura rated it liked it.
The "Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior" will utterly engross anyone who is interested in animals and wants to know how they are like and unlike humans. It's certainly the kind of book that every reasonable library should have available for student research, and it's nice to see the field getting this kind of serious attention. Included in this encyclopedia under "Culture" is an article by Orca Network board president Howard Garrett on culture in some animals, along with a sidebar on the successful reunion of Springer, an orca calf who rejoined her family after a year's absence.

The book includes overview material on the ecology and natural history of whales and dolphins. It also has a section dedicated to each individual species. Each species section includes an extremely nice painting of the animal, BW photographs, a narative description, and information on the animal's range, behavior, natural history, and conservation status. Overall an excellent handbook on the cetacea. First, the author befriends the dolphins and observes how they embody the characteristics of the higher self: kindness, joy, harmony, wisdom, clarity, and mystery. Second, she notices that the dolphins are communicating telepathically with her.
Finally, she transfers to the human sphere what she has learned - that adopting the spirit of the dolphins can lead to joy. Whales and Dolphins of the World by Mark Simmonds Whales, dolphins, and porpoises have fascinated humankind for centuries. Amazingly diverse, they have evolved specializations that allow them, despite being air-breathing mammals, to exploit habitats ranging from surface waters to ocean depths.
Whales and Dolphins of the World is a celebration of the variety more than 80 species , behavior, and natural history of these remarkable animals. Stunningly illustrated by color photographs, it describes what we know of their lives, including feeding, reproduction, communication, and social structures, and surveys the factors that affect them, from hunting to pollution. The book explores the strong relationship between our species and theirs, with a look at dolphin therapy and the pros and cons of whale-watching. It details the forces that threaten whales, dolphins, and porpoises, including hunting, whaling, fisheries, pollution, and habitat destruction, and also describes the conservation actions that must take place in the twenty-first century to save them.
