My Script

                         Picture=Boys playing Basketball

When I think back to that afternoon before Jonah opened the first letter I remember how different I seemed and how I acted towards Jonah. I was so self obsessed and focus on clothes. But those letters changed my perspective of the problem we faced, my relationship with Jonah, and the way I looked at myself.

                         Picture=Taking a picture of file
       Soon Jonah questioned our parents about his adoption and our dad scheduled an appointment with Mr. Reardon, an F.B.I. agent who has information about Jonah’s adoption. I persuaded my parents into me go by telling them that I would not say a word. But when an astonishing event happened I regret it all, but it also helped me later I learned that if I was silent in the office I could observe and I realized Mr. Reardon was trying to figure Jonah out. We arrived and had to sit in molded plastic chairs in the waiting room. During the wait a janitor presented Jonah with a Mountain Dew bottle that supposedly came out of the vending machine when it wasn’t suppose to. Soon we are called into Mr. Reardon's office. Somehow him and my parents get into a big fight. After a while they came to their senses. Right after that Jonah fled to the bathroom with great urgency because his Mountain Dew was back coming up. GROSS! While they were out in the hallway a mysterious figure suddenly appears in Mr. Reardon’s office and then disappears leaving out a secret file. When they come back I am frozen and pale because of the event. Jonah questions me but I do not answer because of my vow to mom and dad. Soon Jonah becomes curious about the file and I can tell that Mr. Reardon knows it is not supposed to be there because he keeps glancing to the side inconspicuously. Eventually Jonah came up with a plan that we both agreed on. He distracted everyone while I memorized the names in the file. I was still so scared I could barely think, luckily I decided instead of memorizing the file I took pictures with my celephone. I was so surpirsed that I had gotten that great idea when I was so terrified. After that the meeting was over we exited Mr. Reardon's office and to the car. Once we were in the parking lot Jonah asked me if I had memorized the file and I answered no. Then I told him that instead I had taken pictures on my celephone. Once we got to the car we piled in. Now that the meeting is over I think that those letters really do mean something and I am going to find out what.

         Soon after the meeting with Mr. Reardon me and Jonah go to Chip's house to upload the pictures I had taken of the secret file. It was revealed to be a list of Witnesses and Survivors of what seems to be an important event hidden for years. We looked over the list of Witnesses first and found that there were very few. Then we looked at the Survivors list and at the end we saw Jonah's and Chip's name!Immediately Jonah got up and said that he didn't want to know anymore. I tries to force me to go too but I stand my ground because I really want to dig into the mystery and find the answer. When I look back at that day I notice a big change and know that I did the right thing.

            A few days later me and Chip call all of the witnesses on the list. Most of them hang up on us but one, Angela DuPre, who seems regretful about hanging up on us. A few days later we got a letter that was unsigned and I figured out that it had to be from her. It asked us to meet her at the library were she would tell us everything that she knows. I strongly agree to meet her because she has information and might know who Jonah and Chip are. We meet with her and she tells us about a plane that contained 36 babies and just appeared and disappeared. She tells us that she thinks from the information she had gathered that us coming in the plane has to do with time travel. I took a big step in change that day that we got the letter because I really cared about meeting Angela.

At the end of our conference two unanimous guys come in wrestling each other. One shouts for us to run so we jump out the window and flee on our bikes. After we have ridden a mile or so Jonah suddenly stops and turns back to go get Angela for she had stayed behind. He races as fast as he can go and we follow a long ways back. Once we finally arrive Jonah explains that Angela had just disappeared into thin air while I carelessly pull back my sweaty hair into a ponytail. I changed a lot because not to long ago I wouldn't be caught dead looking like that but at that moment I couldn't care less.

        Picture=Blackness while spiraling to the 15th Century

We are invited to an adoption conference that we decide to go to and bring Chip along with us. We arrive and get our name tags and pile into an auditorium were the kids and parents are split into separate groups. Me, Jonah, and Chip are put into the same group because I pretend to be Daniella. Our group goes into a cave that is sent into non-time existence. Soon the adults get into a big fight on who gets to take us where they want to, past or future. JB wins the fight and tries to first send Chip and Alex back to their rightful place in history but stick to each other like glue sticks to paper. When are shot by the Elucidator we are sent spiraling to the 15th Century. On the way Jonah convinces JB into letting us fix time. That was the start of a time travel adventure that we would never, ever forget.

I can tell you are on the right track now. You do a super job of making references to the text, but be sure to add your insight/"so what" also. For instance, remember we later learned from Katherine that she was silent in the office and observing--she realized Mr. Reardon was trying to figure Jonah out. Maybe add this to your 2nd example.

Good luck with your writing--buckle down and stay focused. This is going to be a great project/contest entry!
