Trusting Skeeter was especially difficult since she was telling Skeeter stories she had never told anyone before, such as why she writes every day.

There are many reasons to support the question on why students should read the book “The Ninth Ward” written by Jewell Parker Rhodes before leaving middle school.

When people think of Alice Dong, they think about her success in chess as one of the top players in New Jersey as Tammy La Gorce writes in “A Chess Prodigy, a Mentor, and Still a Teenage Girl.” However, Alice did not have an easy journey to the top. Few times in her life (especially as a youngster), she thought about quitting because she “struggled with people thinking it was a nerd game, or too Asian” or when she lost to a four year old boy, Jeffery Xiong, now the second youngest chess grandmaster of all time (Gorce). Whatever the case, Alice has persevered and continued to play the game she loves. Reading this, I was able to connect with her in a sport different from chess but with similar stereotypes.
