“Jean Louise “Scout” Finch, her older brother, Jem, and their friend, Dill- spend most of their summer holidays trying to learn more about their reclusive neighbor Arthur “Boo” Radley…” (Flynt). At the end of the novel Boo reveals himself by saving Scout and Jem from Bob Ewell, who was going after them in the middle of the night. Scout then realizes that he was a nice man and all the things said about him were not true. Scout’s friendliness helped her to see people for who they really are.
He never had many experiences outside of the house, so he acts as if he was still the child he was before he stayed in that house for so long. Boo Radley is also considered a Mockingbird, the symbol of innocence in the book. Jem conveys the theme of love for his sister Scout when he takes his birthday money to buy her a twirling baton (even though his caring gift didn’t last long). “Jem thought he had enough to buy a miniature steam engine for himself and a twirling baton for me” (Lee 116). While he does end up snapping it in half during his rage towards Mrs. Dubose, it is clear that Jem had loving intentions towards Scout.

Sherman Alexie uses indirect characterization and antihero literary devices in order to portray the differences between a father and a dad, and what a true dad should be, in the book “Flight”. This book is about a teenager named Zits who lost his parents at a young age and started traveling down a violent path. Then when he was about to commit a serious crime he started to time travel through different people’s bodies teaching him how to be more compassionate towards others. Alexie encourages the readers to be caring towards others and know that all life is sacred no matter who they are or what they’ve done. This is shown towards the end of the book when Zits thinks about what he has learned after his journey.
I wanted to be social, but sometimes felt intimidated by older kids. In the spring, I joined the lacrosse team, a sport I had never played, and soon made many friends from all grades. One senior, named Ben, was someone I looked up to and admired. I still remember how intimidated I was of him and yet by the end of the season we were good friends. Just like in Vietnam, I started to realize that being shy around new people could keep you from becoming friends with them and there was nothing to fear.
There was not quite enough descriptive adjectives used to describe the characters in the novel and often left the reader feeling left out or confused. In this quote “Before they got into their parents’ cars, Sam and Coop asked ben if he wanted them to come over once they got out of their gear. ”(p 103) there is little to no emotion given from the characters Sam and Coop even though they just lost their important football game it leaves the reader feeling like they didn’t care instead of being disappointed which they were a few paragraphs before. The main protagonist Ben is described as being 11 years old short and respectful but the cognitive process of the child is matched to one of an adult. In the Main conflict Ben helps Shawn become a better quarterback despite wanting to be the starting quarterback and this is often quite unrealistic because at that age most kids are more worried and focused on themselves and would rarely go the extra mile for others while at the same time giving himself a disadvantage.
Elementary school is a big step, especially getting ready for middle school. For example if one is bitter towards someone, meaning jealous or angry, then their middle school years won’t go very well. They will go through being angry and it will make them focus on less important stuff rather than their studies or sports. Similar to the boy in “The Jacket” by “Gary Soto,”he goes through his life being jealous of kids that are happy or have good relationships and new clothes. The boy does not like the jacket his mother got him and does not appreciate it enough, even though it gets the job done.
Another example the movie talked about was the fact of leadership. For instance, Dr. Judy Chu quotes, “In good times guys are like really close to each other. But when things get all a bit worse you’re on your own.”. Boys make sides or teams as kids, singling out the ones that are not as fast or as fun as the others. When this happens, they make believe that the other kid is somehow different.
Elwin Leper Lepellier started off as a quiet and reserved introvert, but what he went through during his teenage years left an everlasting scar he will have to live with for the rest of his days. Leper was not a main character in the novel A Separate Peace by John Knowles. None the less his influence on other characters and the storyline itself was immense. Leper’s impact on the story A Separate Peace was not given the attention it deserved. Furthermore, an analysis of Leper as a person and as a student is needed.

Especially when Ender starts off and goes to the school he is 12. I know it is hard to find a 6 year old actor, but they could’ve tried to make it so that he looked younger than he was so that it wasn’t obvious. They also could’ve made it so that when Ender thinks that he is playing a strategy game he is actually conducting an army without him knowing. They could’ve made it so that when he figures that out that this wasn’t a game the leaders of the school tranquilized him and I didn’t think it was relevant at all that they did that. It also didn’t happen in the book so I don’t see a reason for it.
