Each family member had their ups and downs, notwithstanding, overall they were merry and perky. Anne was born in Frankfurt, Germany; however five years after her birth, the Franks fled to Amsterdam,
In the story he says “I’ve got something to tell you,” and also says “Go on, sit down” this to me sounds a bit harsh considering he didn’t say “please” or “may”. All of these variables : her shock at the news, the pregnancy she is going through and rough news, made her think of a life in ruin, which consequently lead her to a sudden frenzy.

During Tom’s trial, Tom said, “...scared I’d hafta face up to what I didn’t do.” (page 265), and that’s because Mayella indirectly took an innocent man’s life, which makes her personality even more unattractive.
Reflection In my observations and thoughts of reading the “The Joy of Reading and Writing: Superman and Me” by Sherman Alexie, I found the passage to be quite interesting but informative.

O’Keeffe’s parents saw an artist in her early on and made sure she received the best schooling to pursue her dream. Her parents’ positivity stayed with her as she prospered as a self-supporting artist. Most of her paintings are vivid and bright because of the positivity shared with her throughout her childhood. O’Keeffe’s artwork was more feminine than most artwork in the 1920’s because there were not a lot of female artist in the beginning, but O’Keeffe helped to change that. Lastly, O’Keeffe always tried to see nature and other commonly painted objects differently, and using the Dow Method she was able to do this.
