    I think this book is called The Watchers or Watchers, about these girls named Eve and Tanya or whatever...it begins when Eve (is that her name? Or was it Eva?) is 6 years old, then goes to when she s 14. There s an event in which Tanya (or something) dies at a ski resort, and then Eve boards a train to go...somewhere.

It s a very confusing and strange book. I read it once before and didn t really understand it, and now I want to read it again but it seems like no place has it. When I searched it up there were no results as well (except for other books named the same thing).

  • Why do schools always give more homework than what experts recommend?

    Websites say that you're supposed to have 10 minutes per grade, so 1st grade is 10 minutes, 2nd is 20, and so on. And high school seniors should have around 2 hours of homework. But everyone knows no school follows that suggestion and always gives more, and 12th graders probably get a lot more than just 2 hours (even though I'm not in 12th... show more

Why is this? Why don't they listen?

  • Why do classical music pieces have such vague names?

    Why is it that classical music rarely has a "creative" name like books, and they're usually called Something Concerto No.3 and such? Is it because the composer doesn't want to, like, impose any interpretations of the piece and wants to leave it to the person who plays it to have their own interpretation? And I understand that the... show more
    Why is it that classical music rarely has a "creative" name like books, and they're usually called Something Concerto No.3 and such? Is it because the composer doesn't want to, like, impose any interpretations of the piece and wants to leave it to the person who plays it to have their own interpretation? And I understand that the musical terms in the name (serenade, concerto, etc.) tell what kind of piece it is, so I suppose that's important, but couldn't they just add another "creative" name after it with a dash? As in, Something Serenade for Strings - Winter Night or whatever, in that format.

  • Should I move back?

    Hi. So...I'm in 8th grade right now, I recently moved from another state to attend my last year of middle school in Cali. But I hate this city and the schools here, and my parents say we can move back but not until 2 years later due to, well, reasons.

    Hi. So...I'm in 8th grade right now, I recently moved from another state to attend my last year of middle school in Cali. But I hate this city and the schools here, and my parents say we can move back but not until 2 years later due to, well, reasons. So I would be starting my Sophomore year in high school by then...so would it be a smart idea to move back in the 2nd year of high school? It's not like it'll be hard making friends because all my friends are actually back at that high school in the state I may move back to, so I would reunite with them again. And I sort of doubt I would make friends here because I don't like the people here. But would it be a bad idea to move back in the middle of high school when concerning grades and transcripts and classes and everything? Because some people say it could ruin your grades or advanced classes or something...but the thing is ever since I came here my grades haven't been as good so it's possible I could get even better grades if I go back and do even better, but then again I don't know. What's your opinion? What should I do in 2 years? I know nobody can see the future but I would just like your insight on this xD Thanks.
