He was often tortured by his parents, the Socials, and was to be left alone day by day. However, he has shown himself to the world that he will never be a pushover by people like the Socials and his parents, instead to shine as dazzling as a shooting star in the sky in the book Outsiders by S.E.

Another trip that I am very grateful to have gone on is our trip to Alabama, even though the hotel we stayed at was one of the strangest places I have ever slept in. Also, while we were in Alabama we stayed in a beautiful area, but they had large Palmetto bugs that weaseled their way into the condo.

She also believes most people probably can experience sleepwalking. Similar to my opinion, she claims that sleepwalking can be a bad thing because it causes confusion and harm for the sleepwalkers. When the brain is unable to inhibit action, there might be other problems, and those might lead to more other problems. During sleepwalking, Katlynn’s mother could knock on others’ door room, or hitting her father when he was sleeping next to her, or she would just simply stare blankly at the ceiling. It might sound creepy; however, she concerned more about her
