As I was growing up reading did not run through my family and we did not just have books laying around at the house. Also, while I was in school I never enjoyed reading and I would hate going to the carpet for class reading. My family and I were more involved in being active in sports or some type of physical activity. My mom had always said that I was never a kid that could sit still.

To conclude, Mirror Mirror is a good adaptation for several reasons, namely its well-rounded characters and its radically-improved take on the relationship between the prince and Snow White and on Snow White’s character. Through these contextual readjustments, Mirror Mirror creates interesting, three-dimensional characters and a believable love story, and defies gender roles and deep-seated stereotypes, thus promising to be a satisfying experience for the
Women did anything and everything in their power to contribute to their causes. During the time of the civil war women were banned from fighting. Being a soldier was seen as a man’s job and not a role for a lady to do. In general women’s role at this time was to take care of the children, clean the house and cook for the family.

Rather than writing her books with the meticulously developed English that she once used, Amy settles on the broken English that certain groups could potentially connect to. Influenced by her mother, Amy begins to “opt out for all the Englishes” she grew up with (3). Despite her original preference of long, complicated sentences, Amy quickly adapts to a more intimate style of writing because she realizes that her audience will only truly benefit from her ‘untraditional’ writing style. Amy even says that “[she]knew that [she] succeeded where it counted when [her] mother finished reading [her] book and gave [Amy] her verdict: So easy to read’” (4). This goes to show that Amy is willing to change her identity as a writer because of her mother along with her other readers.
