    3.What do you think makes a great story with dilemma?

    I think to make a great story with dilemma is to make it lead to a cliffhanger so it leads the reader to suspense and tension and makes the reader feel what is going to happen next.

    Challenge:Copy and paste one sentence from the story where you think the author manipulated the language/punctuation extremely well.

  16. 1.The dilemma in the suitcase kid is that the girl is angry of her mum and dad arguing because her mum and dad are separating and they can’t decide for the girl to live with. But the girl wants to live in a cottage with her mum ,dad and her pet.

    3. The dilemma was if she should save the lady or not .She should save the lady but at the same time she is risking her life.
    My favourite dilemma was the balaclava one because it is more intresting it was a great dilemma because it wasn’t sad or happy.

    He tried to fit it in his pockets but it wasn’t working.

  17. The dilemma in the first one is sh could live with her father or live with her mum it is very hard to choose. The girl is in a major situation. She does not know if to live it’s her dad or her mum. This is a very sad story if it happens to children in the world.

    In the second one a boy steals a balaclava, from his friend because he felt alone and his friends did not let him play with them if he did not have a balaclava so he went to the toilets. And he saw his friends balaclava and he took it when he got home his mum gave him a balaclava. Should he give the balaclava back. Or should he keep it.

    In the last one Rose hears cries and she goes to save them but should she risk her life and save another person. She is putting both of their lives in risk at the moment. She saves the woman and the thanks her politely. She did not ignore the woman and leave her for dead. She actually listened to the woman’s cries and saved her life. In the end nobody got hurt so that is good.
