“We read it for months, so many times that the book became tattered and sweat stained, it lost its spine, came unearthed, sections fell apart […] but we loved it dearly” (68). Reading created joy between the girls, strengthening their friendship and their will to escape the encompassing darkness of the neighbourhood. Each moment spent reading in the courtyard was one where they could be children, creating an inseparable bond. There was no worry of the past becoming present, in fact, the book drove them to desire a better future. Little Women provided a luminosity from the injustices they suffered, like Lila’s inability to continue her education.
Thus, the second novel was born entitled “The Evolution of Mara Dyer”. The part that I loved in this novel is when she is started to hallucinate about her friends and how the building collapsed. I loved the idea of that because people are sometimes finding a hard time whether the good or bad things that are happening to you right now are real or true and I can relate to that, but I don’t hallucinate like Mara Dyer. I tend to make question myself if everything around me is actually happening or if I’m just in a dream where I got into college and living in a place so far away from my family. I highly recommend this book to young adults and persons who love supernatural or paranormal stories.
The first thing Morrie tells us about his new mother shows that he is very fond of her. She is called his “saving embrace”, and that shows that he likes her. We know that she is a very energetic person and she brings positive atmosphere into the rather dim areas that his father creates. In quite a few aspects, she is the opposite of Morrie’s father and brings a very positive atmosphere into Morrie’s life. I believe that Eva is a big reason that Morrie is as loving and caring as he is.
After reading I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai, I have learned that Malala is a dynamic character. At the beginning of the book, the character is (A normal girl) eventually, the character becomes (unstoppable), and (brave). These character traits were observed through Malala’s actions, dialogue, relationships, choices, and problems. So this is like me because when I am scared I will think about how Malala faced her fears and how simple my fear is.So Malala really helped me know that there is more than candy in the world that makes me happy like my friends and my sisters kinda. But at least I have my parents I would be as worried as Malala when she didn't know where her father was and if he was killed!So there is much more than candy, my friends family Mrs.Gasser and more.
This is a lovely and magnificent story that teenagers readers relate very much. In this novel six teenagers put aside their political associations and enjoy each other by sharing their passions, opinions, and cultures. Moreover, readers will walk away with an important lesson about people and that no matter who we are, where we come from, or what/who we believe in, we all outbuilding the same blood and want to live freely and in peace. Cecil Castellucci uses analogy and symbolism in a wonderfully subtle way, emphasizing emotional truths without misleading her readers. The novel is refreshing and encouraging.
In the novel, Arnold falls in love with Penelope and readers could feel about the pure love. Arnold is accepted by his new friend Roger. Arnold and his old best friend Rowdy get back together. “Now that might just sound like a series of homophobic insults, but I think it was also a little bit friendly, and it was the first time that Rowdy had talked to me since I left the rez.”( Alexie S.J., Jr, 2007) People think that it is easy to obtain all of the beautiful times while they are reading an satisfactory result. Comedy reveals something difficult but people could defeat.

The joy of learning is what unified the Walls family and is the source of the children’s most endearing memories. They would read together and bond over learning. Jeannette recounts her happier moments “after dinner, the whole family was stretched out on the benches and the floor of the depot and read with the dictionary in the middle of the room so we could look up words we didn’t know. (Walls 56-57) The Walls not only believed in a growth mindset; sharing knowledge was in fact how Rex and Rose Mary best expressed their genuine love and affection towards their children. Rex when sober taught his children geometry, physics, astronomy and how to convert their math homework into binary numbers.
She talks about how self pity is a natural part of the human experience of grieving, and she convinces the reader of this too. She shows the reader that this is how she copes. As a reader, or at least for me, I understand and appreciate this. This book is kind of a downer, and it can be rather technical at times, but it remains a page turner because of the great flow and smooth stories. Also, the technicality of this piece rings true to the person that you learn Didion is.

My mom looked me in the eyes and told me that she was very proud of me and gave me a big hug. Not only was my mom proud, but so was I. I am aware that grades are not the only criterion, but also character, leadership, and service to Waterford Mott High School NHS. I am a very shy person at first.
