Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt is a great book. It is filled with everything you love about a book such as drama, comedy, romance, action, mystery, sorrow and after your done reading the book your left with a lot of questions some I’m going to answer today. The Ending of the Book I didn’t like the ending of the book because I thought that Winnie should have drank from the spring when she was seventeen and married Jesse. I also thought the book should have been longer because I wanted to know what happened to the Tucks after they helped Mae escape jail and what happened to Winnie after she chose not drink the water from the bottle Jesse gave her. The ending of the book was sad when Winnie died and Tuck went to her grave and saw her. The Tucks’ Differences …show more content…
They never were and never will be welcomed just because of their immortality and if you say your immortal people will laugh at you, be scared of you, or even try to kill you. I also thought the Tucks didn’t like their differences because nobody ever visits them, not even Mr. Foster who knew everybody didn’t know the Tucks. Did Winnie Spill the Secret? I know that Winnie promised the Tucks that she would never tell anybody about the secret but I think she did. She probably told her husband and children the secret because maybe she trusted them enough to tell them. I think that Winnie couldn’t keep the secret in any longer because just like the Tucks were relieved to tell somebody the secret she probably felt the same way. I have had a really fun time reading the book and answering all the questions. I hope that more books like this will come out so I can read them and have the same fun I had reading Tuck

She might have changed the ending herself because she felt like her book didn't send the right message or she didn't like the way she ended it.

The book that I chose to read for the first quarter is called “The Princess of Iowa”. This book was written by M. Molly Backes.

She is very popular and her life seems to be perfect.
Based on a true event mixed with some fiction "Who Killed Christopher Goodman" written by Allan Wolf is based on a murder.

For that reason, the relationships individuals maintain with his or her confidante powerfully reveal who they truly are.

Although Thomas Jefferson argues that Aaron Burr is a horrible villain, Theodosia, Burr’s confidante, disagrees.
The author ended with a cliffhanger but it doesn’t really make me want to read the next one. If he had made the book longer and finished talking about how Sarney and Nightjohn taught in the pit school it would’ve been better. I wouldn’t recommend this book to someone unless they really liked books about history. My opinion on the movie is worse than the book. The only thing I liked about the movie is that Pawley got married and the slaves seem happier than described in the book.
In the novel Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger readers are introduced to a young man named Holden Caulfield who introduces himself and begins to tell his story of how and why he left his school; Pencey Prep. In the story, Holden explains how he is being kicked out of school and doesn't want his parents to know and so leaves school early. throughout the story, Holden explains what happens to him before he must go home and act like he is home from school for a break instead of being kicked out. When it comes to the topic of Author's purpose of The will of individual vs the will of the majority some will think the purpose is to show that Holden going against the will of society to rebel, however, I think the author’s purpose of The Catcher in the Rye was to show that the individual will manifest in his desire for isolation comes from his is fear and damage done by fear of pain, failure, rejection, and is unwilling or unable to go along with the majority. This all shown through Imagery, symbolism, and diction.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
The only thing I didn 't like about the book was how it was written. I think it would be way better if it was written as a story in 1st person about there life and not how it was written. The book didn 't really make me think differently about things because I know what I think about slavery and no one can change my mind
