Hey Maddie haven’t really seen you for a while.
I know I won't be able to see you ever again and it just breaks my heart every time I go to write these to you. But don’t worry about me, how is it up there? You're getting everything you want and need right? Look I'm just going to get right to the point of this letter Maddie I miss you. Don't worry Jupiter's doing amazing, I haven’t seen her yet but her foster parents are writing to me and sending me pictures every week. Usually on Monday but sometimes she sends them to me on Tuesdays. Anyways love you and I miss you. Maddie Joyce <3 Joseph Brook
Just to state before I get into the second letter it says on the envelope that if Joseph is not there for Jupiter's 16th birthday to give this to her.

Dear Jupiter Brook,
Hello Jupiter, how are you. How are your parents treating you? I know I'm not there for your 16th birthday and I'm sorry for that, but I want you to know I love you so much, me and your mom love you so much. She even died giving birth to you, and I ran away from home too many times to find you, and know both me and your mother will always love you.
Enclosed in this letter is 20$ and a picture spend it on whatever you want I know it's not much but it's all I can spare for right now. The pictures of your mom and me, they’re poorly taken but I want you to remember us always.
There are so many things I want to share with you but since I can't, here are two things I would appreciate it if you did 1. During the winter pour maple syrup onto the snow put a popsicle stick in it it tastes so good 2. I want you to meet my best friend Jackie and his family they will help you if you need it. They live at (address).
I love you as always
Hello Ty, our teacher is making us ask you a question (boring right). So I was wondering What is the most impact scene in the book, why, And what type of scene is it?
If you were to compose/associate a soundtrack for your Orbiting Jupiter movie, which songs (3-4) would you chose and why did you chose them?
One of the big problem with books is there is no audio, and since my teacher had us make a cast and a movie poster I thought I would need to make a soundtrack. (Now all I need is a camera and the actors).
The first song will come during the opening credits before the movie to try to create an overall feel for the movie, this was a very hard task because the book has many aspects. I decided to go with Under the Bridge by The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The first reason I chose this song is the sad feeling. Its sad feeling is undeniable its lyrics are “I don't ever want to feel Like I did that day Take me to the place I love Take me all the way I don't ever want to feel Like I did that day Take me to the place I love Take me all the way (yeah yeah)” but it has a few high moments to touch on the few happy feeling moments. The second reason I chose this song is it a very popular song that anyone born between 1990-2000 should know. Click here for the song. For reasons from the lyrics click here.
The next song will quietly start when Jack leaves the bus stop with Joseph and will get louder all the way till the part when Mr. Canton opens up Jack's locker. The song I chose for this was Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO because it's very applicable to this part because in this part they're having fun and becoming friends. It's also very upbeat and we need something upbeat in this movie or everyone will be depressed by the end. Click here for the song.
My third song is for the part where Joseph is skating and Jack is yelling at him but this song mutes out Jack until Jack yells out Madie, and the song is Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty. The reason is it hints at joseph being in love with someone and the fact that it's covered up by it looking like it's just about him skating and feeling like he's flying is just a bonus. Another reason is that it talks about feeeling bad for letting go of the one you love. Click here for the song.
My next song is during his memories of Maddie and when Joseph tells the family about Maddie. The song is very touchy and emotional but it fits the mood, the song I chose was I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith. The first reason is it's a love song. A love song fits this scene perfectly as it's about him loving Maddie and not wanting to forget about Maddie. Click here for the song.
My final song will be All I Want for Christmas is You in the style of Michael Buble. The first reason is song is christmas themed and fits perfectly fits with the christmas theme of the book. The last reason is it talks about all Joseph wanting to be with Jupiter right then. Click here for the song.
Overall these are the songs I would choose thank you for reading and have an awesome day.
