Meet The Souls
Nadia Diamondstein is a plump girl with bright curly red hair. She has many freckles on her face. She is very intelligent. She has a genius dog called Ginger. Her parents were divorced. Her Grandpa, Izzy married Margaret, Ethan grandma. She is the only girl member in “The Souls”.
Noah is a 12-year old boy. He has brown hair and wears glasses. He was accidentally the best man at Izzy - Margaret wedding. He was the first one chosen to attend the Knowledge Bowl. He is smart, always has good answers for everything and really observant.
Ethan is a tall boy with blonde hair. Ethan is the son of the farmers and he lives in the farm. He has a secret love for theatre. He really likes halo and he has a secret crush on Nadia. His family is one of the oldest family of Epiphany town. At school, he usually makes his teachers disappointed because he is not as smart as his brother Lucas. Therefore, he was shy and quiet until “The Souls” was created .
Julian originally comes from India. However, he has a British accent because he attended a boarding school in England. When he first came to Epiphany middle school, he was bullied. Later, he held a tea party which connect “The Souls” together. His mother was a singer and she died. He is the last one chosen to attend the Knowledge Bowl.
What we experienced after reading The view from Saturday isn't just about friendship, kindness. It's more about how to look inside, don't look at the outside of a person. We can't assess anyone by their appearance. For instances, in this book, Julian is described as a weird boy in school because he doesn't talk to anyone usually and he's being away from everybody. However, far way from that appearance, he's a nice and understanding friend. His friends can find a peaceful and beautiful time when they're with him. Besides, Ms. Olinski is a paraplegic. People thought that she can't do anything after her motorbike accident. But, opposite with what they thought, she stood up and started everything again. Ms. Olinski is a nice teacher and she understands her students by her true heart. Moreover, understanding people isn't just to look at them and see how they act. It's about how we feel their mind, how we get their real emotions even though they don't finish the sentence.
This is an official website for the school in the book. I think so because this school is the only school located in New York.
This is an organization website has all the major information about sea turtles including a video tells challenges sea turtles are facing. They are trying to preserve these endangered species like Nadia, Margaret, Izzy do.
If you want to know more about different bibles such as the Koran (Muslim), New Testament (Christian Bible) you should check this website out. They have very descriptive details for different one.
