Groans rang through the silence. I ran for my life, Clay and Summer trailing closely behind. "Run faster!" Clay encouraged. "Faste-" Sumer's sentence was interrupted by a loud three part harmony groan. But then Summer made a descision. "We can't run all the way! We need to fight!" "No!" I disagreed. "You won't make it!" "I'll be fine. Don't worry." She ran towards the blockheaded zombie acopolypse as quickly as her blocky legs could carry her. Clay ran towards the safehouse, dragging me along the way. I disagreed to go back. I wanted to make sure Summer would be okay. As soon as we were in the safehoue, Clay punched me in the stomach. Even in Minecraft, that hurts real bad. "The heck are you thinking! Summer would be okay. She's trained." But I saw a flicker of worry in his eyes. That flicker was inturrupted by a arrow flying out of nowhere. I looked underneath his block legs. A pressure plate. Since Clay only had three heart left, he fell startled on the ground, with the only one half of a heart left. The arrow stuck in his head. I pulled it out. A memo was attached to it. 'Goodbye' it read. 'Summer'. He got back up, but fell down on the floor when he read the note. Summer was dead. We need to survive by ourselves now.

When you reach me is a great book! It starts out like a realistic fiction book and turns into a mystery. It can get a little confusing and they're are lots of things that happen that you would never see coming. Read this book!!!!! Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
