Imagine a strong, fierce young girl like Squeaky, a dedicated runner & a fulltime sister to her “...not quite right” brother Raymond. Squeaky is the main character in the story of “Raymond’s Run” written by Toni Cade Bambara. Squeaky’s brother has a difficult life, always being made fun of but luckily he has Squeaky who always sticks up for Raymond whenever he needs it. Squeaky kind of reminds me of myself, I do not have a troubled brother but I can definitely feel for both Raymond and Squeaky with everything that they have to go through. In the story Squeaky is having to prepare for the May Day race.
Our protagonist improves her characteristics in every single chapter. Most importantly, she wins love from readers. According to the comment from Wendy (Dec.27th, 2007), a writer, Mary is “an unlikely character to evoke sympathy at first, but one who the reader grows to love.”(Wendy (Dec.27th, 2007), The Outlander – Book Review, paragraph 2). In other words, while other narrators are trying to let audience feel pity and sympathy to protagonists, Gil Adamson is trying to make Mary as strong as she can to earn popularity with her

Disney’s Cinderella is the quintessential princess fairytale. It has a beautiful girl in distress, an evil stepmother, talking animals, and an abundance of singing. Cinderella herself is a figure deeply embedded into popular culture, and most will cite Disney as the parent of the story’s popularity. The story centers around the timelessly beautiful Cinderella; a young woman who has lost her father, and thus is required to live with her evil stepmother and stepsisters who treat her as the help. Despite her step-relatives’ abuse, Cinderella remains kind and gentle, and befriends the estate’s many animals.
The strengths overcome these weaknesses as seen through the book’s success. Overall, I think this is a great story and I recommend this for a reader who wants a new story to indulge and lose oneself

Pearl’s relationship with her mother differs from a typical mother and daughter relationship. For example, as a young child, Pearl “amused herself with gathering handfuls of wild-flowers, and flinging them, one by one, at her mother’s bosom; dancing up and down like a little elf whenever she hit the scarlet letter” (55). Hawthorne describes Pearl throwing “handfuls of wild-flowers” to enhance the connection Pearl maintains with nature, and Pearl’s attempt to create a similar connection with her mother. In fact, Pearl identifies her mother by her scarlet letter unlike most children who identify with their mother’s face; therefore she throws the flowers at the scarlet letter instead of at her mother’s face. An additional linkage exists in that Pearl possesses similar artistic abilities to her mother, however Pearl’s artistry always involves nature.
Throughout the novel, there is a lot of evidence provided to support this theme. Towards the end of the end of the story, Holden’s sister, Phoebe, is riding a carousel while he waits in the rain. Phoebe is playing a game where she is trying to grab a gold ring, but Holden is worried that she will fall off. As he watches her ride, he thinks, “The thing with kids is, if you want to grab for the gold ring, you have to let them do it and not say anything.” (pg.211). This shows that Holden is finally realizing how life goes on, and if those kids have a dream (what the ring symbolizes), then you got to let them go on their own.
