Phoebe’s mom leaves and Phoebe goes on a frenzy trying to cope with the loss of her mother in the family. Then when her mom was gone Sal wrote that Phoebe “... wore a fixed expression: a sealed, thin smile. It must have been difficult for her to maintain that smile, because by the time English class came around, her chin was quivering from the strain.” Phoebe tried to ignore the fact her mother left and isn’t really accepting change but she is learning to accept it but not in a healthy way. Phoebe is trying to find why her mother left.
It was on her 13th birthday that she got a diary. In her diary, she wrote about her friendships, crushes and her academic performance at school. Anne had an older sister named Margot, and they attended a Jewish school in Amsterdam. In this diary, the Franks moved to Netherlands from Germany because they feared prosecution. After the Germans invaded the Netherlands in 1940, the Franks, another family called the van Daans and Mr Russell hid in a small secret annex above Otto Frank’s, Anne’s father’s office.
Throughout the book, Annemarie tells fairytale stories to her younger sister, Kirsti. In my opinion, she does this so they both can escape from the harsh reality of the war. Storytelling has become somewhat of a coping mechanism to deal with what is currently going on in Denmark. She wants her sister to have a “normal” childhood but her sister is used to seeing Nazi control in their country. In the beginning of the story, Annemarie along with her sister Kirsti, and their friend Ellen were stopped by Nazi soldiers.
When she says this she is referring to her best friend, Bex and her boyfriend Zach and she is talking about how she doesn’t think that she can be friends with them any more because of how she ran away. When Cammie and Bex are alone in the woods, Bex counters Cammie’s comment about running away by saying, You didn’t have to go on your own” (89). Here Bex is letting Cammie know why she shouldn’t have run off on her own and how dangerous it is, once again showing the external conflict of the story. I think both types of conflict in this story were high quality because they were both deep and thought provoking. The internal conflict was creative, unique, and unusual because both people don’t deal with amnesia, that secretly isn’t amnesia, on a regular basis, so this was a cool way to mix things up.
Preventive diplomacy has been an effective tool used by both internal and external bodies in conflict resolution. It has registered many successes around the world because it is believed that it is cheaper to prevent any kind of conflict than to intervene. The 1990’s crisis in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf could have been prevented if effective measures were taken in time to prevent it. This brings us to the main focus of the paper: why preventive diplomacy failed to avoid Iraq invasion of Kuwait in 1990? And what could be done?
In the novel To the End of the Land (2007) by David Grossman, few questions of gender and its relation with peace and war, arise.

The entire book is seen trough Ora's lenses which is able to describe and transmit her despairs and anguish.

Sun Tzu’s, The Art of War is famously known as, “One of the most adaptable books of the past two millennia” (Gilsinan, Kathy. “The Art of War in 7 Charts.” The Atlantic, Atlantic Media Company, 10 Mar. 2015). Sun Tzu’s strategies can be utilized for many challenges, not just for fighting in a war. I think that is why so many people admire these writings, because they can apply them to actions completely opposite from war such as work, relationship issues, and communication dilemmas.
