The setting of the book Mayday by Karen Harrington starts out at a restaurant with Wayne ,the main character, his mom, grandpa and his uncle Reed
When I am here I feel like I shouldn't be here. I should be helping my friends out in Iraq.
Tell me something new
Wayne's uncle Reed was reported dead in action. On the way back home from the funeral a back panel of the plane was blown off and the plane was going down fast. Wayne was holding on tight to Reeds Memorial Flag but it flew out of the back. Lots of other things flew out the back as well. Luckily Wayne and his mom survived the crash at a cost. The lady in the seat next to them was not as fortunate she sadly died.
did you know a chameleon has a tongue that is one and a half times the length of it body.
Wayne was badly injured after the crash. There were stitches along the whole side of his face. It almost looked like a big L along the side of his face. Also his laptop flew out the back of the plane as it was flying out it hit Wayne's neck really hard. Now he is unable to speak. His mom was a little more fortunate. She only had broke her arm in 3 places, hit her head hard and twisted her right ankle.
"Wayne, I'm okay, honey. We're okay."
Wayne was so devastated when he lost the flag so he spent most of his time emailing people and researching the crash site to try and get the flag back.
Where could that flag be?! Ugh
Denny is one of Wayne's friends who he meets at the speech therapist office. Denny is able to sing really beautifully but speak with a stutter. The doctor told Wayne to to speak but your throat is healing. Wayne's only way of communication is through note passing.
How are you Wyane on a plane.
Wayne wanted to switch schools so he wouldn't have to face all Of the people he knows.
