Betrayed - Referat

Im folgenden möchte ich mein Englisch Projekt veröffentlichen, welches in der ersten Bewertung relativ gut bewertet wurde (s.o.).
Ich habe selbst nach Hilfe für Betrayed gesucht, nichts gefunden und hoffe, dass dies euch helfen wird.
was zu beachten ist, dass sich die summarys ab Kap 3 nicht mehr an die summary-Form halten. Wenn Ihr einzelne Kapitel schreiben bzw zusammenfassen wollt, denkt an die Einleitungssätze aus der ersten oder zweiten summary.
Rechtschreibung und Grammatik sollten soweit stimmen.

Bei der Charakterisierung ist zu beachten, dass es zu wenig Zeilenangaben sind. Halt entsprechend ergänzen.

Viel Spaß damit!

In the novel „Betrayed“ by Carl Taylor, Thomas Walker, a new pupil at Hartlands, a very exclusive private school, is one of the main characters and is described as a very shy (p.6 l.30) but friendly boy.
The reader is introduced into Thomas life by a third person narrator when he visits his new school the first time.
In this scene the reader gets to know that Thomas Walker is a very shy boy and is not good in making friends. Also he is very lucky, because in his room his roommate is a very nice person and he is not sad that he is at this school anymore. Unfortunately there are a few boys who do not like him and they are mobbing him.
His best friends at school are a teacher called Mr Clay and his roommate Ralph Jenkins.
All in all Thomas Walker is a shy but friendly person, who is new at school and has some problems with unfriendly pupils.

Ein kleiner Brief als Schmankerl von Thomas an seine Mutter ;)

Thomas writes a letter to his mum:

Dear Mum!
Today it is my tenth day at Hartlands. I think, this is the right school for me. But I’ve got a problem… It is nothing important, but… There is a guy, I don’t know why, but he is kidding me! At the first day he has done a welcome treatment with me. He flooded my room with a big bag of water! That is not funny!
I already talked with Mr Clay about this theme, I hope he will manage it. He is very nice to me, I’m quiet glad to have him as my “private” teacher!
It a pity, that you weren’t able to see the whole countryside of Hartlands when you have been here, it is really great! Like the pupils, everyone is very friendly. Well, nearly everyone, just Bradley is a little bit nasty. But I think he is just like this because I’m the new one. After a few weeks everything will be normal.
I miss you mum!
I’m looking forward to see you in the holidays! =)

In love,
