Change by Taylor W Sometimes rules must be broken in order to be free, even if following the rules was all he has ever known. In the book The Giver by Lois Lowry, Jonas the main character changed through the novel.Jonas followed all the rules in the beginning but then in the book he changes and realizes he must break rules to be happy.Jonas knew the risk of breaking rules but would the cost be worth the punishment he will face of being released. In the beginning Jonas followed the rules and always did as he was told.For example,when an instruction was given to the Community to drop what they were doing”instantly , obediently, Jonas dropped his bike on its side on the path behind his family's dwelling”( Lowry 2). Jonas did as told without thinking because that's all he had ever known.Another example was, Jonas took a apple from the activities because he followed the rules”he had, of course, disposed of the apple and made his apology to the recreation director the next morning , before school”(Lowry 29). Once again because following the rules was all he had known he

Holden on Phonies Holden Caulfield constantly contradicts himself in the novel, The Catcher in the Rye, this is best seen on his views towards phonies and he himself unknowingly being a phony. Throughout the book Holden mentions the phrase phonies several times as a way to describe someone who is fake, hypocritical, or pretentious. For instance, Holden thinks that Mr. Haas, the headmaster at Pency, was the most “phoniest bastard” he has ever met; Mr. Haas always puts on a act when he’s meeting parents (21). When people are phony it “drives [him] crazy” because he just wants people to be real (21). Holden contradicts himself by telling Sally that he “loved her” even though “it was a lie” he told because they were kissing (189).
The two books I read was And Then There Were None (ATTWN) and Confessions: The Private School Murders. ATTWN, the first book, was about these 10 people who were invited to this island, some of them for a job and some were invited just to hangout and have fun. One by one they start being killed and they try to figure out who is the murderer. The second book I read, Confessions: The Private School Murders, was about this young girl, Tandy, and her two brothers. Their older brother is on trial for murdering his girlfriend and their unborn baby, the girl is figuring things out about her past and her long lost lover, and there are private school girls getting killed right where she lives and she is trying to figure out all of these answers.
Nevertheless, holden does not even truly care for his future and basically is throwing it all away. “Oh, I have a few qualms, all right. Sure. . .
His brother’s death however was not his only literal encounter with death. The second death was that of James Castle, Holden’s Classmate at Elkton Hills School. He jumped out of the window when he was mercilessly bullied by some classmates of his and ended up dying. “He was dead, and his teeth, and blood, were all over the place. He had on this turtleneck sweater I 'd lent him” (Salinger 2010 : 92), although Holden didn 't know James well enough his death still left a mark on him.
Catcher in the rye is a phrase that Holden misunderstands horribly. So another question that could be raised is his constant image issue. Also faced with his prostitute dilemma he refused to pay money to the Maurice, the pimp. Because he’s Holden he thinks he is invulnerable to everything. “Maurice said five, I told her… He said five.
Quote #5: In J.D Salinger's Catcher In The Rye, the speaker of this quotation is Old Spencer and he is speaking to Holden. This quotation suggests Holden's dislike about growing up into the adulthood and taking one step into maturity. During this conversation, Holden is receiving advice from his old teacher after explaining that he is getting kicked out from Pencey Prep. The word life is repeated twice to emphasize Old Spencer's wittiness and how he is experienced on what life really is about. It's significant to know that Holden deems Old Spencer's advice as phony because he doesn't agree with the rules of life.
Soon, Katelyn and Alyana moved in together, which made it easier for all of us to spend time together. At Bailey’s 12th birthday party, her best friends showed up. That night they all had the bright idea to go tee-pee Bailey’s father’s close friend, (Jeff Hughes), that was teasing the girls. Bailey’s mother drove them to the store, while the girls bought about 20 rolls of the cheapest toilet paper they could find. After they bought the toilet paper, the girls went to Jeff’s house.
I believe this had something to do with why Len became an active shooter at school. Len also had problems being made fun of at school, and was always being bullied by the people that he called jocks. When Len decided that he was going to go to school and shoot people and commit suicide, I believe he did this because he had a mental disorder, a bad homelife, and he wanted to make a point. The reason why I think that Len was trying to make a point is because he wrote "stop the violence" in his own blood on the
In this case, Ray Knight’s parents (plaintiffs) are seeking liability compensation against the School District (defendants) for the alleged negligence of their son’s middle school. School officials gave Ray Knight a three day suspension for unexcused absences. Although, the School District’s policy is to give parents phone notification and written notification through the mail for student suspension, Knight’s middle school officials sent the written notice home with Knight. In an attempt to hide the information from his parents, Knight crumpled the notification and disposed of it away. On the first day of his suspension, Ray Knight was killed while visiting a friends home.
This feeling is able to tie in with a similar feeling child soldiers also feel in the present real world. Joshua Berlinger, an associate producer, writer, and Newsdesk editor at CNN, shares Ishmael Beah’s experience and thoughts about returning home: “People stop trusting each other, and every stranger became an enemy. Even people who knew you became extremely careful about how they related to you or spoke to you,” (8). From the practice of training and fighting as a child soldier, it creates contention
While this novel does have profanity and sexual references, it still deserves to be taught in high school because Holden shows how having a negative attitude towards life does not get a person far. In the beginning of the novel Holden tells the reader that "[Pencey] kick[s] [him] out [of their school]" (6) because he "was [failing] four subjects and not applying [himself]" (6). However, he does not just notify the reader, he notifies them in a way of forgetting to mention that he is no longer going to be attending Pencey. Holden passes this off as some minor detail when in reality it is not just a minor detail. Later on, Holden reveals to the reader that this is not the first school where he has gotten expelled.
