The Client


1) The main character of my book was Mark Sway.

2) Mark Sway is a bad little eleven year old boy with a huge burden on his hands. Mark
smokes ciggaretes, uses foul language, and picks on his little brother, Ricky. Mark grew
up in a trailer, with an abusive father, a mother who is hardly around, and his little
brother Ricky who annoys him plenty. Mark was a very strong character who did not take
anything from anyone! The trouble Mark ran into with Jerome Clifford only made him
stronger. All he cared about was protecting his little brother, and his mother. Jerome
Clifford was a heavy set man, who was trying to commit suicide, because of a dangerous
secret he knew. Mark and his younger brother Ricky, stumbled upon Jerome one day, as he
was trying to commit suicide. Jerome revealed the dangerous secret to Mark, which made
Mark a major target of the mafia. Mark was pushed around and overlooked, but as soon as
people found out Mark knew this dangerous secret, they all wanted a piece of him. Mark
knew he was in trouble so he did t! he only thing he knew possible, which was get a
lawyer. The lawyers' name was Reggie Love, a woman. Mark despised Reggie at first, knowing
that a woman was not capable of fullfilling his needs, like a man could. Then something
happened where Reggie grew on him, he got more used too her, and he found himself telling
her personal things, spending tons of time with her, and starting to care for her. She was
like the mother figure he never had. Mark and Reggie were in the tangle of mess together.
Mark realized through the whole ordeal he could not do everything by himself, he also
realized how vulnerable he was by being independent. Mark and Reggie became bestest
friends, right up to the point where he would have to leave into the witness protection
program.


3) I liked the way Mark was so rowdy, and uncontrollable. He was so young, yet so smart
and mature. He knew how to protect himself, and he knew the importance of his family
members and friends, and how important it was too protect them. No matter what the mafia
did to Mark, he made sure his family was safe first, than he took care of himself.


4) I could not really find anything I did not like about Mark, I did not like at the end
how he had to relocate into the witness protection program. Which meant he would no longer
be allowed to see or communicate with his new found friend, Reggie. It really hurt me when
they had to seperate, because even though they were not related, it was like she was
losing her son, and he was losing his mother. It was a difficult moment for both of them,
I am sure.


5) I would compare myself to Reggie Love. She is a very intelligent lawyer, who uses her
smarts too outwit even the brainiest. She cares very much for her clients, especially
Mark. She was very willing to give up her own life to help Mark out, because he meant so
