For my orbiting Jupiter letter I decided to write to Jack as Joseph to say thank you for everything he has done for him.
Hey Jackie I'm writing you this letter in Mister Canton’s office instead of going to gym because I was supposedly disrupting the class in math but you know Mister Canton so I probably did nothing, I have to do some stupid project in english were I write some letter to someone to open in 10 years and guess what I picked you Jackie.
So I guess in 10 years I hope me and you are still working on the farm and I'm still milking Rosie with the sound of Quintus Sertorius in the background screaming for food and us completely ignoring him. I guess since I'm writing you this letter I should say thank you for everything you've done for me Jack but I don't say thank you very much so don't get used to it.
I guess I’m thankful for all the times you walked to school with me in the freezing cold just because I hated riding the bus and the people on it especially Mister Haskell. Thanks for always having my back even when I didn't need you or when you got yourself into trouble just to try and come to my rescue, but what I'm most thankful for is that you helped me find Jupiter when everyone else thought I could never find her. Most importantly in 10 years I hope I'm still trying my best to find Jupiter and raise her and I know you will help me, won’t you Jackie?
Trust me Jack the next 10 years are going to be great as long as you learn to throw better at the old first congregational and I'll even teach you how to skate like me because I have your back and you have mine.
Sincerely: The one that has your back, Joseph
Hello Amilia i wrote you this question because i really would like to know what you think and i cant wait to answer yours.
Why do you think Joseph ran away to find Jupiter all on his own even though Jack's parents agreed to help Joseph find her. Use your own personal experience and the book to answer this question.
If I were to create a soundtrack for Orbiting Jupiter I would chose the songs Lost Boy , All I Want For Christmas Is You and A Thousand Years.
My first song is Lost Boy the reason I would chose Lost Boy as one of the songs in my soundtrack is because I think it relates to Joseph's life and the struggles he has had to go through to get where he is now. “There was a time when I was alone nowhere to go and no place to call home my only friend was the man in the moon and even sometimes he would go away, too,” That is one of the lyrics in the song Lost Boy and it's just like in the book Orbiting Jupiter, Joseph was alone getting put into different homes than juvie and his only friend was Maddie and he could never see her on the weekends but then one day she just went away. This song is all about a boy who is lost with no family and no friends and nowhere to go but with the help of peter pan and some magic he finds his way to never land where he is save and found a new family. Joseph is that lost boy with nowhere to go but with the help of a few people he found his way to his new safe home with a great new family. “Then one night, as I closed my eyes I saw a shadow flying high He came to me with the sweetest smile Told me he wanted to talk for awhile He said, Peter Pan, that's what they call me I promise that you'll never be lonely, and ever since that day,” That is another lyrics from the song that makes me think about the book Orbiting Jupiter because one night or day a very nice lady came and told Joseph he was going to a new home and he should never be lonely again because his new family will love him and care for him and ever since he got to his new family his life is getting better day by day. “ Together we will fly away in a cloud of green To your beautiful destiny As we soared above the town that never loved me I realized I finally had a family”. This lyric is just like in the book because Joseph left the house with his dad that never really loved him and juvie and finally found a great home with a family that really does love him. Those are the main reasons I would chose the song Lost Boy for my soundtrack.
The next song I would pick for my soundtrack is All I Want For Christmas Is You. I would pick this song because it's a great representation of the part of the book where it's Christmas and Joseph's wants nothing more than to just find Jupiter. “I don't want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need I don't care about the presents Underneath the Christmas tree I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true oh All I want for Christmas is you” That is one of the lyrics in the song All I Want For Christmas Is You, those lyrics remind me of Joseph because Joseph does not want anything but to find Jupiter for Christmas, he doesn't care about the presents he just cares about Jupiter. “I just want you for my own More than you could ever know” is another lyric in the song that reminds me of Joseph because Joseph wants to find Jupiter very bad and wants her for his own not some other people who have adopted her. Those are the reasons why I think that song is a great choice for my soundtrack.
The final song I would chose for my soundtrack is A Thousand Years, This song is a song about love and how sometimes love is hard just like it is in Orbiting Jupiter. “ I have died everyday waiting for you darling, don't be afraid. I have loved you for a thousand years I'll love you for a thousand more”, This lyric is just like when Maddie dies Joseph died everyday waiting for her but she will never come back, he loved her always and will till the end of time. “ Heart beats fast” is what I think is what always happened when he saw Maddie or what could happen when he sees Jupiter. “ And all along I believed I would find you” is what I think the best lyric is because Joseph knows he will find Jupiter he has known it all along. Therefore I think this song would be a great choice for my soundtrack.
