    I thought that the way they pulled in the Suzy was backbreaking but cool. I think that they could put in a little more spicy vocabulary and more details and parts to this book. I honestly would like to read a flashback for stuff that happened In bright jades time.

    I would make the book a bit longer so that you can add more description in the book and more action.
    I really liked the mix of mystery and action. It made the book interesting and action packed.

    1) it was very realilistic and magical all at the same time witch kept me reading even if there was a word I didn’t understand.

    2) I think they should have more easy words.

  4. By: Ty on December 4, 2014 at 12:46 PM      Reply

    Something that I thought worked well was the character because they all seemed like they fit in this book.

    I thought they could put a little more action in the book.

  5. By: Daniel on December 4, 2014 at 12:47 PM      Reply

    I liked jasmine because she goes with keung to an adventure to find keungs dad.

    The thing I did’t like about the story is when blue scar Wong tried to kill keung because that’s child abuse.

    The thing I liked is that jasmine found a secret doorway and learned a lot about Chinatown.

    1 I think that went well is the detailed that the writer put in the story. The historical details are the Canadian pacific railway. I’m sad that the ended.

    2 I think there should be more action in the book. There should be more talk about bright jade

    I think they worked good on the history of the book. I work good on writing good detailed Jornals for CRM WJT book. They made good characters.

    I think the book should improve on more details and made it more interesting. They also should of added some mystery where the white jade get lost and they try finding it.

    I liked that they were trying to capture White Jade to bring back the White Jade Tiger. Also what I liked about the story is that Jasmine has to travel back in time into Chinatown.

    I think that could be improved would be that maybe they could involve the emperor a little bit more in the story. Also what could be improved on os that I didn’t like that jasmines mom died at the begging.

  9. By: Liam on December 4, 2014 at 12:50 PM      Reply

    1) The thing that whent we’ll that they practically teach you a couple of things ex what she did when jasmine was working on the railroad.

    2)I recommend put more little more detail.

    I liked How the book author didn’t make jasmine and keoung find chan Sam as soon as they start their journey. I also liked how there was so much mystery and excitement.
    I reccommend that her mom should’ve told her about her weird dreams.

  11. By: Gavin on December 4, 2014 at 12:52 PM      Reply

    I liked the story and Ialso liked the facts about history it was surprising to learn things about the history.

    I liked the characters.

    Something I think that they should fix is that it was some cliff-hanger.

    Sometimes they did not have details.

  12. By: Jamie on December 4, 2014 at 12:53 PM      Reply

    A few things I liked about white jade tiger are that it was a more fictional version of the creation of the CPR and I also liked that they also had Chinese characters.

    One thing that should be improved is giving Bluescar Wong a deeper character and give him a back story.

    I liked how the book was kinda mysterious because in her dreams it’s telling her something and that doesn’t happen for real and when she walk in the no exit door it took her into fan tan ally back in time.
    I recommend that they can tell us when she is dreaming.

    Kyle: these qesutions were hard because I didn’t no if it was add or multiplication and one thing that I do is I go over the qesutions twice and then answer
    Richard:I got confused because there were another number that was useless
    Tiana: I thought the second question was hard because I didn’t know if it was multiplication or subtract.

  15. By: Liam, Becky on February 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM      Reply

    Liam: Problem solving is tricky because sometimes you use the wrong number and get it wrong.

    Becky: My strategy is I write the math part on a piece of paper and figure out the answer.

  16. By: Kaleb on February 25, 2015 at 1:01 PM      Reply

    Tarra:problem solving is tricky because you have to focus on the numbers and question so you can know what to right and get all confused after you figure out your wrong.
    Fatima: figuring out what’s wrong and rite
