He uses all five senses as well as thought and his actions to express his personality as well as how he reacts and interacts with his surroundings. Max’s id, ego and super-ego are greatly shown in this book through the way that the author has portrayed him. Not only is this book a children’s story, but it can also be perceived as a life lesson. Many people go through times in their lives when they make drastic decisions right away, such as leaving home. One may enjoy it for the rest of their lives or only for a little while, just like Max who felt lonely after having fun with the monsters. In this case, people end up going home to be with their family where they are not lonely, and can have more time before making a final decision of what should happen next in their life.

Have you ever just been so fed up with life and just wanted to give up so that you won't have to deal with your problems anymore? Life just seems to be overwhelming. In the book Lessons Learned, I can connect and relate to the main character. I see similar hardships that the character and I have been through. In the novel, Keyshia goes through several problems such as not seeing eye to eye with her mother, being abandoned by her mom throughout her whole 15 years and not knowing her dad until the age 16, and her younger brother Mike being with a dangerous girl.

We both share the same views of the world, are viewed by the world in similar ways and I would respond in a comparable way to the central conflict of the novel. Therefore, I believe given the chance, we could be friends.
