Other Wise Known As Sheila The Great October 14,2009

Dear Mr.Daw,
I just finished a book called Other Wise Known As Sheila The Great. By Judy Blume.This book is realistic fiction I know this because it said that Sheila
can't swim.This book can connect to my life because sometime I hate how people don't do what I say when I am really scared,this helped me understand because I know how she feels.

Some Character traits are that Sheila is very mean to Jennifer the dog this changed because at the bend of the book she started liking Jennifer and said she was really friendly.Another character I can do is Mouse.She starts being mean to Sheila when Sheila said that Mouse couldn't help with the school newspaper(summer school)At the end of the book Mouse said that she was sorry and could of trust Sheila.

The way this books problem was that Sheila wanted to go to Disney Land for summer but at the end she said that she liked it better at the place Ergans.Something I would change about the book is that when she met ooch because was not the most important part of the story and you only needed to know that Mouse had a sister named Betsy.I think the authors theme is that you should not judge a place until you see it because in this story Sheila learns that the Ergans place is much more fun then Disney Land.
