Hi I am Kennedi Miller. For my summer reading project task 2 I read the book Merci Suarez Changes Gear by Meg Medina.The quote that I am using is "I know you and roli are smart enough to be here more than smart enough. But we don't pay tuition like most of the other families. So your value you add to the school has to come from you, because it's not coming from our wallet's."
LET'S SET A PICTURE:Merci just got in trouble for accidentally throwing a ball at Michael's face. She got sent to the principal's office and got a call home . so her dad had to pick her up and merci did not get why she had to get in more trouble than everyone else. Not to mention she is at her school on a scholarship.
"I believe you but not everyone else will, and your are calling attention to yourself in a bad way. You have to think about that ,Merci, because Dr.Newman can ask you to leave if he think you are to much trouble."
"I didn't hurt the kid on purpose. It was an accident."
"Here is the deal, you have to show everyone here everyday that they did the right thing accepting you. You have to act like a serious girl .
"Other people do dumb stuff all the time. Why do I have to prove anything"
"That is not fair!"
I choose this quote because meci accidentally hit someone in the face with the ball and could be kicked out of the school. But if some else in her school did that they would get off with a warning.
"I know you and Roli(her brother) are smart enough to be here more than smart enough. But we don't pay for tuition like most of the other families. So the value added to the school has to come from you, because it is not coming from our wallets"
