One reason I think this is because she is spending so much time with Ky. She is with him everyday at hiking class and he is teaching her to write in cursive so they are growing closer. I think that Cassia has feelings for Ky that are stronger than her feelings for Xander. Another reason I think this is because Cassia found out it wasn’t a mistake that she saw Ky’s face on her microcard. When she was talking with Ky he said that the officials accidently gave him a match even though he wasn’t supposed to have one. “Then they showed me a picture.
I am reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. This memoir gives the reader a peek into the major events encompassing in the unusual life of Jeanette Walls. The reason i decided to read this novel was merely because of the raving reviews of the people around me. They said it was a very quick read because i would have trouble setting the book down and they were very true. The main character is the author obviously and we follow her through her struggles growing up that even follow her to some of her adult life until she finally finds her happily ever after.
One way or another this story has something that will touch your heart. Reading Krista and Becca’s books once is simply not enough. You’ll go back to it every day and if not, every once in a while, just like home. After all of the heart-break I went through with Hothouse Flower, I couldn’t be anymore happy how it all turns out. This is easily one of the best and most heart wrenching book I’ve ever read to
Countless of people have been awestruck with her work to this day. She would also write letters to her loved ones or to people whom she was seeking advice from. Some of those letters are almost just as famous as her poems, because they gave us an insight on a woman who we knew nothing about. She dedicated her life to writing, however, her loved ones found out only after her death. Through her personal letters and poems, Emily’s legacy still lives to this
Lowe saw the improvement of her son. I almost cried because of her heart-melting reaction. She has been taking care of her son who had been in frozen state for 30 years continuously because of Mrs. Lowe’s unconditional love towards Leonard. She reads to him every day because he loves reading and she understands his need even though he is static. I felt the authenticity of the acting of Ruth Nelson as she played a heart-wrenching role.
Initial rebellion were tantrums; fake tears spilt in hopes of avoiding practice sessions. As time slowly passed, I fell in love with the big, wooden instrument. Daily practices quickly flew by as I buried my daily stress under a large pile of old, wrinkled sheet music. That view quickly changed my freshman year of high school. My good meaning mother,
The style of writing I found was very old-fashioned as I mentioned before but I found it interesting how the author started and ended the book she started the book exactly where it ends. I also enjoyed how there were many things that carried on throughout the book such as the Lady of the Lea song, Abbie sings it throughout most of her life and remembers it when she thinks about her past dreams of memories and how it would always bring joy to
Contrary to what some may think, love can be found in one hundred and seventy five words. I hold such a love deep in my heart for Elizabeth Bishop’s poem “Filling Station”, because it assisted me in discovering the writer within me and encouraged me to expand my academic skills, even outside of school. It takes me back to the second week of senior year. I recall the smile on my overly-fervent AP Literature teacher’s face as she played a recording of Bishop reading her poem. She said the poet read her piece aloud at a university somewhere, and the second after she had finished reading, she dropped the poem and ran out the door without a final word to be had.

The Story of My Life by Helen Keller is an autobiographical narration of the first twenty-two years of Helen’s life. Since she was a young girl, she was always interested in everything she touched, so she was eager to learn about it.
My success is mostly based from my family. They are the ones that make me strive to be better every single day, and that is probably why I like to talk and write about them a lot. The Writing Collection we did was a bunch of flash draft essays we wrote about events that have changed us or our view on life. Out of all of my flash drafts, the one that was by far the best and most meaningful was the essay I wrote about my family, called “Is Family Really Forever?”. It always amazed me how I could write so much about my family, and that’s when my realization of success with my family hit me.
