Teens nowadays feel many emotions and think many thoughts. Some feel trapped and they like to get out by reading books. Young adults can relate to dystopian books a lot more than many other books because the characters in the novels feel the same way as the readers do. Anthem can especially relate to teens because i is about a man who feels trapped in his world and just wants knowledge and to find his own love. He wants what he wants for him not for the good of the society in the book.
J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter is just the same fantasy journey for many readers. With its outgoing wizard magic, parents believe that this is only a fake story that is based on real life. Because parents believe that this story is artificial, the good parts of the story can be used as a beneficial lesson for children.

Harry Potter can also be a person to sympathize with as he lost his parents to Voldemort at such a young age.
In my own ways, I’ve experienced this kind of discrimination or avoidance because of my blindness. Admittedly, I’ve never been mistreated in the same way that Art had to endure from antagonists, but I can certainly relate to Art’s difficulty in making friends.

The characters that S.E Hilton writes about are very well devolved for a short novel like this one, they are also memorable to the readers.

He has a friendly but paranoid demeanor to his personality, and he is loved by his second 'family ', which is just Greasers.

I most aspects of the literature circle from the reading of Enrique’s Journey to the unique ideas and views each of us shared. I have nearly nothing negative to say about the literature circles, except that the “connector” appears to it a bit harder than the other members of the group considering they write more, from what I have seen. Although, you could say that it is fair considering that each member will be the connector once. Although, I enjoyed reading the nonfiction book Enrique’s Journey. With this in mind, I would say that The literature circles are doing fine other than a few minor issues.
I was very skeptical of John Green’s other books because of his acclaimed fame from The Fault in our Stars. Reading the cover of the book you can gain a small connection wit the main character Miles, because as teenagers we need to find ourselves through every flaw. From the very first chapter it captures you, because at one point in our lives we have all searched for ourselves and a not-so-minor-life. This book is 100 percent real life, written out in this book is the actual difficulties of growing into a better you, facing your fears, and the fears of all the people around you. John Green shows the ugly truth of life and growing up, it was hard not to feel connected.

This shows that they fear what is going to happen so they have all these rules that the people don 't want to follow but because it is punishable by death they do, but there is always the ones who don 't.

It’s perfect for the average teenager. In actuality, I find it perfect for every age group. It gives to the reader a dose of reality; for the younger reader who hasn’t yet faced it, and the older reader who has lost touch with it. It is sad though, when someone with such innocence realizes that life isn’t glorious for everybody and more importantly, life is never fair. I supposed that is how Scout felt, along with her brother Jem, and friend Dill, as they sat through the trial of a black man accused of raping a white woman.

Hatchet, although not being my favorite book, did these things
