My novel is Fahrenheit 451. This is the case. Guy Montag, the
main charachter in the story, was a fireman. Instead of putting out
fires he started them if he found a book in someones house. One
day on his was home from work, he met a 17 year old girl named
Clarisse. She didn’t go to school because she was afraid. She
told Montag about a past where noone was afraid. This made
Montag think about this whole ordeal.
One day they found a book in this old woman’s house and
they burnt it. They tried to get the woman out but she refused to
leave their stuff so they burnt her too. This made Montag sick so
he called Captian Beatty and told him that he could not come to
work. Beatty showed up at his house. They talked for a while and
Montags wife decided to adjust his pillow and found a book under
it. It came to find out that Montag had several books hid in the air
conditioner. If you want to know what happens next you will have

recieved 19 cable award nominations and won 7.
