1. This image relates to a section of my book about bullying. In this image, you see that 5 white eggs are bullying and laughing at the brown egg, because of its differences.

There are multiple times throughout the novel in which characters go out of their way to assist people they do not know. These character’s are showing compassion towards others during a time of misfortune and despair. When a man and his two sons enter the diner, they are clearly financially strained.

Mae, a woman working at the diner, was initially reluctant to give the man the discount, but her co-worker coaxed her into compliancy.
Prompt 1: Bubbles Holden hasn't had such a great experience when it came to school, he got kicked out multiple times and it seemed to never work out for him. “They gave guys the axe quite frequently at Pencey.” Which was stated in the CATCHER in the RYE on page six, paragraph three.

I think that one of the most important ideas of this chapter is how Jack was wearing the mask when he was hunting the pig. I think that this is important because I think that it symbolizes that Jack was not himself when he was hunting the pigs. This can be shown by this quote: “He [Jack] capered toward Bill, and the mask was a thing on its own, behind which Jack hid, liberated from shame and self-consciousness.” Another important idea of this chapter is the fire going out again.
Theme: Individuality 1. “... I’m standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff—I mean if they’re running and they don’t look where they’re going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That’s all I’d do all day. I’d just be the catcher in the rye and all.”

"Homicide. That's a big word means I killed a guy. " Words from a composite man named Tom Joad. It isn't likely that a man who'd utter these words could ever be thought of as a religious, loyal, or even a family type of guy.

Chapter 1: Ralph-has leadership and is smart, since he came up with blowing the conch when there is a meeting and went exploring on the island. In the future I think Ralph will continue to show his intelligence and be a great leader. Piggy-Piggy seems very nice and is eager to become friends with Ralph and is very trusting. I think Piggy will be made fun of since they found out from Ralph that his name is Piggy. Piggy seems to be an outsider since he wears glasses, has asthma, and is overweight.
“Life is a game, boy. Life is a game that one plays according to the rules.” Game, my ass. Some game. If you get on the side where all the hot-shots are, then it’s a game, all right—I’ll admit that.
I understand that Jason did care about what Percy was saying but it's still kind of stupid of him to not realize how bad the situation is??? Like, here is one of his closest friends, who is just saying that he deserves to die a painful death and who's been feeling depressed and really angry lately— starts talking to him about it and Jason is just like “No. I think I get it.” He really should have let Percy vent to him about how he feels (and Percy really needs someone to vent to, at this point).
Examine the dangerous jokes that that form the bassis of the book. How does the author use satire to critique the idiocies and short comings of his contemporary world? The real purpose behind Vonnegut’s writings is “to poison minds with humanity … to encourage them to make a better world”.

“...you have 3 days…”. Rainsford plus the General where at this weird island also, they were stranded there. While writing a thesis statement I have my own opinion. A thesis statement should be debatable. So not everyone is going to agree with it.
