In J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, Holden is suspended in Limbo between being a child and being an adult. Holden realizes that he is no longer a child, which is why he would like to preserve the innocence of children, but he believes all adults are phony, and refuses to be like them. Growing up is something that everybody has to do. As children get older, innocence is lost, and phoniness is obtained, and this is what Holden fears the
The innocent actions some take later in life will reward some, and deteriorate others. Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye, by J.D Salinger delays his evitable process of growing up partly because of the tragic events that transpired earlier in his life and his ignorance to reality. However , Chris Mccandless differs from Holden in the fact that he fully understands reality but protests to greed of humans and the material possessions of man and still facing the gruesome consequence of his immaturity. Seymour Glass does not relate to the accepted adult community and further isolates himself from his peers. Although he appears immature, he actually is struggling from PTSD from the war and the picture his has for the violent adult man.

There are two sides to every story. In the novel, Flipped, by Wendelin Van Draanen, smart and determined Juli Baker wanted the love and attention of her neighbor Bryce Loski. But Bryce didn’t feel the same way about Juli, and he avoided her at all costs. Eventually Juli stopped following her heart and decided to forget about Bryce for good. As Bryce matured, he realized that Julie was a person of substance and made it his mission to win her back.
No doubt he deplores the actions of Alex as much as we do. What he is doing is creating a hopeless version of society taken over by youth. The youth do not share the values of their elders, nor do they admit any sort of normal associations with them. Parents are not obeyed, nor do they set examples. The best that can be hopes for in the world of Burgess is that the young will eventually grow up into copies of their parents.” (Evans, 409) This statement provides support that not only does the counterculture not conform to society, they operate independent from it, and a normal attribute of a society independent of another is another language.
Something important and grandma is coming with me so I need you to take care of your brother and sister, I believe you, any trouble, call me,got it.“ My lips turn into a curl, with all the enthusiasm I have I said ”Sure.“ Yes, whatever I desired it came to me, I did not need to go in search for it. For a sad girl this is life’s the best moment in her life. As, soon as they fell, some energy passed through my spine the energy to throw him away. I made sure everything is going well, made sure my sister is reading or busy and made sure her window is closed as she can see the
The climate of any story or book is the interesting or exciting part. Tell what you think the climax is of the book and why. - In the book The lost boy I believe the climax is when David decided to go live with foster parents. I believe it was that part because his mom thought that David wouldn’t tell anybody about what she did to him. David told Ms. Gold that he didn’t want to tell on his mom, so basically two different things could have happened during this moment and I was so proud of David when he decided to leave his mother’s house.
My maturity level from now to when I first started high school has changed because I have grown from my experiences, bettered myself, and become more a sociable and open person. This has also affected me because I have improved academically as well. I have become more of an independent and responsible person, which I know can be seen through my work ethic because I put my time and effort in to making sure I know the material that I am learning and my work ethic also reflects that. I, also, began to challenge myself academically through taking AP and honors
Reflection: Tell what makes a particular character/setting appeal to you. In the story Kate appeals to me. She is a very warm hearted teen that would do anything to help her friends. When Shep was getting blamed for Grant 's death even though it wasn 't him she was there to come up with information to prove that it wasn 't Shep and that the boys were lying to get the blame away from them. She even risked and lost her job just so he wouldn 't go to prison with Grant 's murder on his record.
Her brother died in front of her, her mother sent her away, and she witnessed almost everyone she loved depart from the world. She had more than enough reasons to quit, but she decided to stay strong through it all. She is brave enough to live with the memories, and rather than thinking of them as a burden, she wears them as a badge of honour. b. "You give me this Saumensch of a book and think it 'll make everything good when I go tell my mama that we 've just lost our last one?"(262).
This book will make kids feel sad, happy, and excited for the main character Paco. The things Paco goes through in this book are things similar to the things kids that get adopted or put into foster care goes through. The lesson in this book is that no matter how happy you think you are, having a group of people who support you will always make you happier. This is important because some second graders who were adopted go through some tough times and think that they only need themselves. This book is for second graders, these students appreciate having a family who loves them.
