Scene and Summary

My book is Begging for Change by: Sharon G. Flake


The part in my book that I read was a SUMMARY because it was describing how one of Raspberry's best friend named Zora who is taking her in and Zora's dad is a doctor but always has his moments especially in the SCENE where a girl who was much taller had a burgundy weave also having the nerve to threaten a 12 year old! As Zora's dad came out he was the girls frightened and went over there as fast as he could without getting pelted with glass. They slowly moved along getting there things into the car while Zora's father was trying to get the girls away the bat. Zora and Raspberry looked at the father in fear screaming for him to hurry and get in the car. 


My story is a summary because it was only summing up most of the Chapter and what the emotions and different some things people never realized about Raspberry and how she used to live ! 


My story was not a scene because it wasn't describing anything about Raspberry's life or describing how she lived or what her Mom went through.

  1. Isabelle, I like that you made an effort to identify examples of both scene AND summary in your book. I'm a little confused, though, by your explanations. Did you try reading them aloud to yourself or to a friend to make sure that they make sense? I think it would be a VERY smart idea!!
