Monaco
Walter Dean Myers

In the book Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers do you think in your mind that Monaco would make it back to the states and marry Julie?

Based on how the story went and some hints I would say that if the author elaborated more, Monaco would have a happy ending. There is no point in a plot that he is going to die after he was wounded and combat operations starting to cease at that point. Besides the note that Monaco gave to Perry about wearing a tuxedo to his wedding was intentional by the author to indicate he will have a happy life.

Walter Dean Myers

Fallen angels by Walter Dean Myers why are Richie peewee jenkins Johnson and lobel in Vietnam?

The reasons each character went to Vietnam vary.

Peewee grew up in a poverish family, and when he wanted something (shoes, for example) he was unable to get them liek everyone else. He figured if he jopined the army, they woudl give everyone the same thing.

Lobel joined the army because he was supected of being homosexual. He wanted to prove to his fatehr that he was a real man by joining the army, however his plan failed, and only deepened the rift between them.

Perry joined the army ti support his mother and younger brther Kenny. he passed up collage to join and send back is earnings to his family.

As for Jenkins and Johnson, I'm not sure, but I hope what I did have will help you.

What is the summary on slam by Walter Dean Myers?

High school student Greg Harris, also known as Slam, struggles with family, culture, and talent. Slam is a great basketball player, and basketball is his top priority; however, he has difficulty being a team player and is searching for his place in school and in his family. He has transferred from Carver, a primarily black, low socio-economic, and neighborhood school, to Latimer, a white, upper socio-economic, and magnet high school. As basketball season approaches, Slam thinks his life will improve. However between failing math and fighting with his coach, Slam cannot seem to keep his game together on or off the court. On the court, he grapples with the coach, a superstar attitude, teammate issues, and more. Off the court, he is trying to cope with a dying grandmother, his best friend possibly dealing drugs, a love interest, and an alcoholic father. With the help of family, friends, and an assistant coach, Slam begins to get the big picture.

Because Walter Dean Myers does an outstanding job of creating characters with whom most adolescents could connect, Slam is an excellent novel for adolescents. The vivid and flowing language pushes readers quickly through the text. The dialogue and events in the novel will allow for discussion over a variety of topics and themes which surround most adolescents'daily routines.

What are 10 songs that relate to the book Monster by Walter Dean Myers?

1. Monster by Skillet. I chose this song because that's what he portrays towards himself he believes that he thinks he is a monster he. He has got to the point where he has over though every sinaro about the situation he is in. I don't think that he believes that he has the chance to win the case anymore.

2. Chalk Line by 3 Days Grace. I chose this song to depict that he was next to the killing and that someone who was being charged with murder. The song chalk line is similar to this because it's talking about some one's chalk line being drawn after a death.

3. 25 To Life by Eminem. This song is an almost exact description of how he will be charged with murder if he gets tried Guilty then he will be sentenced 25 To Life. If he is tried innocent though then he will not be tried as much time, but to our information it's a secret... (Lame)

Behind Blue Eyes by Limp Bisket. The way that this song betrays Sevens feelings is almost unbelievable. Sometimes in life it's not weather you have solid evidence, but how other people betray the scene into other peoples minds. Mrs. Henry, Steve's attorney was trying to place in the juries mind that he was not the reason that all of this took place and that it was the shooter James Kings fault
