I just finished "Heaven" by Angela Johnson.  It was pretty good, but I wish it had more of a back story on Jack.  I wonder if Marley moves in with Jack, I hope not.  I hope she stays with her family and sees him often.
If you moved anywhere based on its name what city would you choose?
What kind of person does Jack seem like?


  1. Ms. Diaz, I have been wanting to read "Heaven" also. I read parts of it when my 5th graders chose it for a literature circle novel but never had the chance to read it all. I will be sure to add it to my summer reading list.

  2. Ms. Diaz,

    I would live in Dijibouti! It rhymes with booty! Hah! Some other possibilities are:

    Scrabble, West Virginia
    Chocolate Bayou, Texas and
    Cheeseville, Wisconsin
