Taylor care about herself about she also cares about Lou Ann just as much. Lou Ann is always putting herself down and is very insecure about her image.

David yes! (Line 57-59) David may not have been at a high academic standing but through the criticism at the end of the day he knew he tried his best and that is all that mattered to him. Unlike in “Barbie Doll” the reader is introduced to a young girl who is trying to meet the expectations of the society around her but is continuously criticized ultimately leading to her untimely death at such a young age. She seems to be a girl who grew up like anyone else (Line 1-3). Everything for her started to change once puberty hit, and she became self aware of what others thought of her and it demolished her self-esteem, shown for example in these lines; “Then in the magic of puberty, a classmate
Her search allures the reader, but it distracts from her true characteristics. Beneatha expresses childlike behaviors that her entire family, even her 10-year-old nephew Travis, can not help but notice and react to. Her approach to self-discovery is not only selfish, but reveals excessive juvenility through her choices. Beneatha Younger may not be done on her journey to self-discovery, she nevertheless needs to mature and grow as a person before she can truly find

“As if!” there are still stereotypes of women. Society has getting better with trying not to stereotype women, but after studying the movie Clueless, the stereotypes that were shown in the movie still exist today. For many years women have been told that they have to fit a certain image for our society’s needs. From a woman’s perspective, there are many expectations that are held and are impossible to be met. From a young age, girls everywhere are being told that what they’re doing is never good enough.
She grows into this girl who is rotten. She does not obey Islam, she begins to not obey her parents, and she causes trouble in her school. Marjane can be compared to spoiled milk. She starts off her life being good, but then over time becomes sinful and rotten. Satrapi demonstrates this idea of loss of innocence a lot throughout the book.
Stereotyping is something everyone does even if they do not want to, people just have to learn to get past it. People learn from a young age to stereotype, such as people who wear glasses are nerds and jocks and cheerleaders are dumb. This is not true at all, it is just what people immediately think. In the book stereotypes are objected. Such as a teenage girl being able to make enough for a family to survive (Maas).

Although she had struggles and hesitations, she still follows her lusts so that loses in the lies of
When I was younger and read Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the eponymous heroine’s fluctuation in size was something that I interpreted literally; the completion of tasks that moved her from one part of her journey to the next was, after all, only possible if she changed in size. As a young reader I did not assign symbolic meaning to Alice’s size, but clues to its symbolic meaning still stood out to me. Alice makes more discoveries while she is small and vulnerable. Growth, on the other hand, makes her more awkward, but also leads her to take more incisive action. It was one of her final moments of action that alerted me to the symbolism during my second reading of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland; in chapter twelve, her growth is so sudden
In school she was taught that they were just trouble, but fell for him anyway and realized everyone was wrong. Continuing, another theme that led us through Lily’s adventure of growing up was her discovering how important storytelling was. She was going through gruesome horrid things, and when she read things like Shakespeare she realized how important it was because it helped her escape to a fantasy world for a little bit of time. Lastly, Lily learns the power of the female community. Lily grew up without a mother, so for a large chunk of her life she didn’t know the real power the female community held.
The children in these stories did not take the adults authority seriously and even seemed to strong arm their way to get what they wanted. In the case of Peter and Wendy, they got whatever they sought after because their parents did not have to play an active role in their caretaking, the HappyLife Home performed the task for them. George and Lydia confronted the children about spending so much time in the veldt, but they denied it. Peter told Wendy to go see, and while she was away she changed it to a forest with a singing Rema. She bluntly lied to her parents which shows she knew it was wrong to spend so much time watching animals kill.
She falls into the junkie lifestyle in the hopes that she can escape her painful family dynamic that includes an absent, drug addicted father, and a mother who barely pays any attention to her and denies her obvious drug addiction. The behavior of each set of parents deeply influences the development of each girl as a person, but also proves that despite the type of parent featured within YA literature, these characters are always designed to give the protagonist increased independence throughout the novel, and embark on their own journeys without parental interference. Since young adult literature is specifically geared toward adolescents, the less than perfect parents depicted in novels like The Hunger Games and Crank provide readers with
Theme for “Lusus Naturae” Rejection can make one feel alone, helpless, and out of place, and it’s a feeling that can make someone feel like they are no good, or that they aren’t worthy of a good life. All throughout the story, we are given examples of how the young girl is shamed and rejected. She was never accepted for who she was and this made her do things, sometimes extreme to help out her family. She knew she would never fit in, and her actions proved just that. While reading the story, you can tell in the narrators’ tone that she feels rejected and excluded.
