The Egypt Game is about two girls named Melanie and April and three boys named
Marshall, Ken, and Toby they all play together in the Egypt Game. The character that I am going
to write about is April. If you like a snobby, wanna be girl, you would probably be interested on
her. But if you don’t, well all I can tell you is that she will change at the end.
In the beginning of the book April was mean and selfish but later she begins to
change. Her name was April Hall, but she often called herself April Dawn. She was taken away
from her “beautiful and glamorous mother” Dorothea, and sent to live with grandmother. April
didn’t know much about her grandmother so the whole situation was scary to her. When her
neighbor Melanie went to visit April, was surprised. April’s hair was stacked up in a pile that
seemed to be more pins than hair. She had black and bushy eyelashes and her left eye was higher
up in a different direction.
On chapter fifteen April feels left out and disappointed. April had been in a bad mood
since she received the letter that her mother had mailed her from Hollywood. The letter was very
cheery and chatty, and it said that Nick (the mother’s agent) and Dorothea had gotten married.
She moved to Nick’s tiny house, and that meant that April could not move in with them. April
doesn’t really like her grandmother but that day, she gave her a kiss on her head lightly and she
rubbed her shoulders. She could like her grandmother but she doesn’t want to like her because
then she can go back home.
I like April because she is a good person and when it comes to Egypt, she really enjoys it
and she becomes friends with Melanie. She gets right into the book and now April and Melanie
are starting an Egypt game. April doesn’t want anybody to ruin their friendship. She changes at
the beginning of the book April was selfish, but when April and Melanie play the
Egypt Game she...
