When we were trying to cross the river the current picked up and I fell a couple of times because it started raining, and I could feel the rocks when I hit the ground and I could taste the fishy water. But there was no lightening so we kept swimming in the river for a long time. While we swimming down stream Will saw a bridge and he wanted to go there. Right when we saw the bridge it thundered it was so loud that I could hear it like it was right in my ear. Then I yelled “Let’s just go up to where we started out at.” Will screamed “Let’s go up to the bridge and see what it’s like.” So I went back up to camp where we started out at and Will went to check out the bridge to see what it was like.

Miss Strangeworth, a kind old lady in a small town where everybody knows each other.Living all by herself, known for her attracting roses in front of her house.Turns out she isn’t the lady everybody had in their mind, she was more than just an old lady.She is a bully, hurting other people by sending letters anonymously.

Throughout this novel it is because of the ring Bilbo is able to rise to the occasion and become the hero he was meant to be, but the power of the ring can corrupt even the purest of hearts.

Which is perhaps the novel's deepest appeal, since all of us secretly hope we, too, could be heroes” (Donahue). At the beginning of the story Bilbo is no hero, nor does he want to be, but when needed he does what he must to help those he cares about.
Sometimes, the hero is the underdog, but in other cases the hero is someone who's already known by all for being incredibly strong or brave. Not to mention, most people root for the good guy, but every great story has an even greater villain. In reality, a lot of times in these types of stories, the hero's endeavors are hardly ever impetuous.
