    TypeJack St. Bride, a teacher and soccer coach at and all girls’ prep school, was loved by his students and player.Most kids though he was the best teacher and coach they’ve ever had.He was very handsome which cause many of the girls to have crushes on him.Catherine Marsh was one of the best soccer players on St. Bride’s team.Her enthusiasm for soccer made Jack very proud of her.This caused her to think he had feelings for her.She was ok with it though because she found him attractive and she thought she loved him.
    Catherine’s feeling for Jack started to turn into and obsession of him.She would write
    in her journal about the contenttwo of your page here.them and make things up in her head.One day Catherine’s dad found her diary and read it.He thought the things it said were true and told the police.Catherine was so scared that she told them it really happened.Jack had to got to court and he ended up entering a plea for being guilty even thought he didn’t do it cause his case wasn’t looking good and entering the plea would mean he’d spend a lot less time in jail.
    While Jack was in jail he was physically abused by a man named Mountain.Mountain teased Jack constantly so Jack decided to find a way to get him to stop.They made a deal that everyday they would watch Jeopardy and if Jack got all the answers right then Mountain couldn’t touch him.The deal went on for a very long time until one day Jack messed up and answered wrong but Jack out smarted Mountain and talked him out of hurting him.Jack was released soon after this.
    When Jack gets out of jail he has no where to live and only one set of clothes which were the ones he was wearing.He decides to walk to the nearest town when a man driving stops and gives him a ride to Salem Falls because it was pouring rain.When arriving in town Jack goes to the do or diner restaurant to become employed as a dishwasher. The next day he must go and tell the Salem Falls police that he is a registered sex offender; this was part of his court plea, however this angers the police. Officer Wes gets angry and worried his crush Addie.
    Wes soon tells people from around town about Jack being a sex offender.After hearing this from Wes, important men in the town such as Charlie, Tom, Amos and Ed start harassing Jack.First they throw a brick with a burn paper attached through the window of his apartment. Addie lets Jack move into her house to keep him safe however it doesn’t work.Late one night while Jack and Addie were spending time together they heard a noise outside so Jack went to investigate.As soon as he stepped out the door a group of men dressed in all black start to hit and kick him till Addie comes to the doorway with a gun.
    Jack leaves to protect Addie however while walking he is chased by a car and has to go through the woods to get away from it.When in the woods he sees a fire and people dancing around it.He reaches the group of people and realizes its Amos’s daughter and her friends, Gillian grabs his arm but he gets away. A few moments later all of the fathers and Wes show up to see what’s happening which is when Gillian accuses Jack of rape.
    It’s not hard for them to believe her because of his past.They end up going to trial where a series of events happen.Catherine Marsh, the girl that first accused Jack, gave a testimony says Jack was innocent and she lied before.In the end Jack wins but instead of staying in Salem Falls Jack takes Addie to New York.

    Why didn’t Addie question Jack more about his past?
    Addie just hired Jack with out asking him questions about who he was or anything.It was kind of surprising because most people have to fill out an application and have an interview before they are hired somewhere. Addie just must of needed a lot of help at the dinner not to ask him things about his past.

    Did Catherine's dad know she went to testify and Jack's court case?
    Catherine decided to testify that Jack was innocent at the court case against Gillian. She did this because she felt so bad for lying about it before and causing him to go through so much. It never says if Catherine's dad knows that she went but i feel that he didn't because if she would have told him then he wouldn't let her go.

    I can connect Salem Falls to other Jodi Picoult books I’ve read.Every book I have read by Jodi Picoult has some type of court case in it.In Salem Falls there is also a reoccurring character from another book I read called 19 Minutes.
    I can connect the book Salem Falls to an episode of CSI. In the episode of CSI a teenage girl frames a man. She accuses him of raping her just because when she told him she loved him her told her not to say that. When he did this she felt she had to get back at him. This is much like what Catherine and Gillian did to Jack.
    I can connect Salem Falls to a Saw movie.In the saw movie one mans daughter was ran over when she was very young.This broke his heart and he took out some of his anger on his son.The father left his daughters room just as she had it before he died and when he found his son in there playing with the toys he yelled at him.This is like how Addie reacted when she found Jack cleaning Chloe’s room.It made Addie made because her daughter died too and she felt that if she changed anything she would start to forget Chloe.

    I can connect the book Salem Falls to a play we have read this year.It connects to The Crucible.The play The Crucible was mentioned many times throughout Salem Falls.The young girls of Salem Falls felt they were similar to the girls in The Crucible because they thought they were witches and they tried to do a spell in the woods.When they are caught in the woods, in both the play and book, the girls tired to cover it up by lying and getting an innocent person in trouble.

    A visual of a soccer ball fits well with the book.In the book Jack St. Bride is a history teacher and soccer coach for Catherine.Jack is one of those coaches that gets very close with his players and is proud of them. Catherine takes Jack’s personality and kindness in the wrong way.She feels he acts that way towards her because he has feelings for her.This misjudgment gets Jack into a lot of trouble.

    The picture of a spell book goes with the book because of Gillian and her friends.Gillian and her friends think they are witches just like the girls in the book The Crucible.The group of friends went to a store in town that sold spell books and potions often.They bought a book there and decided to meet in the woods one night and do one of the spells.They were spotted while they were dancing in the woods and to keep them from getting into trouble Gillian accused Jack of raping her.

    I decided to use a picture of Jeopardy for a visual. The television show Jeopardy plays big role in the book. Jack watches it everydayday and sometimes he watches the reruns. He can answer mostly all of the questions they ask.

    I feel a picture of a burger and fries fits in with the book well because of Addie's daughter. Addie had a young daughter named Chloe who was her world. Chloe ended up dying when she was ten because she had bacterial meningitis. Even though Chloe passed away Addie still set a plate of fries and a burger for her because that's what she ate everyday down at the diner.
