The argument must acknowledge opposing views and void the opposition’s claim.

He is able to reflect on the ideas and values that he had prior to the jumps, as well as establish a new sense of morality and justice. He becomes a wiser person by expanding his mind and ideas on these subjects. Zits seemed to have been struggling with ideas about revenge, violence, and forgiveness throughout the novel.

The journeys he had and the information he gained from these jumps have made it easy for Zits to transition into
In both stories, it is obvious that the authors try to display a specific point or time era as well as a meaning behind it. Their writing has a certain place in history, rather than not being associated to any time or era. We clearly know Sherman Alexie wrote his story during the 21st century, because it takes place after 9/11, the style gives it away and you can tell what types of readers he is appealing to. In “Flight Patterns” William wakes up to a radio song “I fall to pieces” by Patsy Cline, who is an American singer during the early 50’s. He started talking about all of the famous authors/ producers
“Class” by Sherman Alexie is a story about a man, Edgar Joseph, on a journey to self-identification. While on this journey he experiences many different tribulations and encounters a multitude of women. The encounters with these women will reveal to the reader his selfless, barbaric, and lost personality. However, the experiences he had with women of his own descent provided a transformative experience that shows what he is looking for and what he truly values.

The emotional struggles prove that he wants to believe Steve is not guilty, but struggles to do so. Moreover, his father finds it difficult to remain optimistic during the proceedings. As Steve and his father continue to talk, Steve searches for the look of “reassurance he has always seen” in his father 's face (Myers 112). His father lacks the look of reassurance because he cannot seem to understand how his son remains in jail for accused murder. Steve’s parents still feel apprehensive if their son is trustworthy.
The vulgar language within the novel isn’t only a means to an end that Zits wants, it’s also a message; a message that vividly depicts a struggling teen yearning for help/change in his life, but can’t seem to do it alone. Zits countlessly uses profanity because that is what will catch someone’s attention, which is precisely what he wants: someone to notice and save him from himself. These quandaries that Zits faces are the embodiment of what a vast majority of teens suffer and go through on an everyday basis. The novel Flight, could almost even be a novel which is a cry for help and attention itself; as the book is about a teen trying to find and save himself from himself, which is a problem everyone in life faces at one point whether we like to admit it or not. But, there’s no way to possibly run away from yourself, and Zits shows us that in the story; the only answer is to accept yourself for who you are, and then the problems will start to sort themselves and gradually get
In the novel Flight by Sherman Alexie, the character Justice is imaginary in the mind of the protagonist, Zits, to validate his subconscious acts. If justice was a real person in the story, he would have been there in each scene with Zits, and with that; he would have also experienced the same consequences for his actions that Zits endured. The fact that Justice was not with Zits for a vast amount of time throughout the novel, and he also did not live through the consequences for his actions proves that he was just an imaginary figure in the mind of Zits. Zits has a pretty hard life,since a young age, his parents were never around to support him, and he moves from foster home to foster home not really getting along with anyone he meets.
