My favorite literary character is Janie Johnson, the protagonist of The Face on The Milk Carton. Janie has gone through a lot knowing that her “parents” aren’t her actual parents. If I had a chance of meeting Janie Johnson I would love to expand my knowledge about her life and how she felt going through her whole life without knowing her biological parents. One question I would personally ask Janie is, How did you feel when you found out your whole life was a lie? I would ask Janie this because in this story she lived 15 years without knowing her real parents.

Although Benjamin Franklin was well known as an inventor, a Post Master General, and “One of the Founding Fathers of the United States”, he was also known for being a leading author of his time.

Even though the exact date it was written is unknown (but most likely in 1746), it was first published in The General Advertiser, on April 15, 1747, pseudonymously. It tells of a woman being on trial for having her fifth child out of wedlock, even though she has been punished for it previously. Throughout the speech she justifies her actions by telling the court that she alone could not make a baby, but yet she is the

Avid readers their selves, they recognized the impact literature can have on one’s life. It wasn’t until 2013, the summer before I started high school, that I truly discovered how much literature can impact your life, views, and feelings. The novel the Glass castle by Jeannette Walls taught me about empathy, hard work, and family. The day my grandmother presented me with a little white book, titled the glass castle I had no interest in reading it. It was different than the books I usually read, it wasn’t a fiction book it was a memoir.

March (2005), was inspired by her fondness for Louisa May Alcott 's Little Women, which her mother had given her. To connect that memorable reading experience to her new status in 2002 as an American citizen, she researched the Civil War historical setting of Little Women and decided to create a chronicle of wartime service for the "absent father" of the March girls. Some aspects of this chronicle were informed by the life and philosophical writings of the Alcott family patriarch, Amos Bronson Alcott, whom she profiled under the title "Orpheus at the Plow", in the 10 January 2005 issue of The New Yorker, a month before March was published. The parallel novel was generally well received by the critics. It was selected in December 2005 selection by the Washington Post as one of the five best fiction works published that year.
My mother would read to us every night, at first just some simple children’s books and then, as we got older, we would read novels together. I loved those memories and even though I had a very caring mother with my very best intentions in mind I never really picked up on reading. That was until I fell in love with my first book.
