Happy Monday! The weather is unusually hot for this time of year and my students are exhausted, so here is a treat for them!

No, I’m not talking about cupcakes!

And it’s not ice cream either!

It’s some reported speech homework!

Most of the sentences are quotes from the novels that we have reviewed this year, and some are from books we will hopefully review in the future!

I promise I’ll post the answers soon… Just a tip: if there is more than one sentence, use “and”!

  1. Edward said: ”I’m trying. If it gets to be… too much, I’m fairly sure I’ll be able to leave” from Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer.
  2. My mother said to me: “Remember. I love you. They cannot take it”, from Delirium, by Lauren Oliver
  3. He said to me : “Becoming fearless isn’t the point. That’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it”  from Divergent, by Veronica Roth
