The Stranger In the beginning of “Where Are You Going Where Have You Been” Joyce Carol Oates reminds the reader of how carefree it is to be a teenager without any responsibility.

Although Rose was always pushing her daughters to get better and strive to be the best they surprisingly could still relate very well to each other. It was presented that Rose had developed this goal to make her daughter a star because of how her life had gone when she was the same age. She was trying to make sure her daughter would get a better opportunity then her as a performer and as a result live a better life. I think that the play was directed very well it never really dragged on and was able to keep me interested to know what was going to happen in the end. I really liked the part where the kids were performing and they time lapsed it and switched in the adults showing the years passing.

As a ninth grade ESL student, I worried that Perla’s introverted personality would hinder her academic and social growth but she soon proved me wrong. I quickly learned that she is very self-reflective and analytical. She may not be the first to raise her hand, but she was the first one to identify accurately the
She does not have a ton of anger built up anymore because she has found a way to release it. Esther says, "I 'm not angry anymore. Before I was angry all the time.". This releasing of anger is helping her develop into a mentally healthy young woman. Although it is helping now, I do not believe it should continue for very long.

Goldilocks and the Four Luthers It would be most odd for there to be a comparison between a professionally written book and a fictional fairytale. Incidentally, that is exactly what occurs between the stories of “Where The Lilies Bloom”, by Vera and Bill Cleaver, and “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”.

However, the comparisons to be noted between these two articles do not include death, but speak on manners such as intrusion of space, the unpermitted taking of goods, and the ridding of unwanted visitors. Their may happen to be more similarities than is first realized.

We the Animals tells the story of a young boy's journey into finding himself through the use of short anecdotes from his childhood.
