It was controversial because most of the black writers have gained an immense amount popularity due to their exquisite and unique writing styles that were being accepted by the literary world. Hurston’s writing was bold due to her ability to take the way southern black folk spoke and actually incorporate it into the dialogue of the main characters or well throughout the entire short story. For example, in the beginning of the story she writes a line for Missie May, “Who at chuckin’ money in mah do’way?” we pick up on all the grammatical errors but that is what makes the story brilliant, she doesn’t care about writing properly, she wants to write they way she wants to. In my opinion, the only way to fully understand, capture, and be a part of the story is by reading and adopting the text as if one was in the south during the 1930’s and spoke in that southern dialect and accent. It is very difficult to be able to write a piece so beautifully by giving it life using the dialect so preciously giving the reader the sense of living in that time period.
Eudora is a phenomenal writer. She is the first living author to have her works published by the Library of America and has won numerous awards, including the Pulitzer Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In her interview with Jo Brans in 1980, Eudora Welty revealed she wrote because she loved language and loved using language. She used this love to create memorable characters that connect with the reader’s heart and mind (Welty and Barns). One of her most memorable character is Phoenix Jackson from “A Worn Path.” Phoenix is a brave elderly black woman who is on a risky journey where she encounters numerous obstacles but continues on fuelled by a love for her ailing grandson.

Wicked Lovely is a well written novel that is for readers 13 and up and the age range reflects readability and not necessarily content appropriateness. Melissa Marr did a phenomenal job writing this book.
In my view, Anne Hathaway was a marvelous actress and a successful actress. First, Hathaway performed her film debut The Princess Diaries in 2001. This film was very successful by US$165 million worldwide. Her performance was well known and so many reviewers admired her act. Second, her next successful film, Rachel Getting Married, was released in 2008.
Again the work of Kaye Gibbons was widely praised and honoured with awards. One award was a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. This shows she is a great writer because she has the awards to show for almost all of her books. Although her books have sold millions of copies, have been placed on numerous best-of lists, and have been honoured greatly, she still has not received the recognition she deserves. She deserves many more resignations than she has got, because she is a great
Flipped Should Be On The Top Of Your Reading List! Flipped got 4 out of 5 stars from three critics and Publishers Weekly claimed Flipped was “A compelling dynamic between the two narrators and a resonant ending, this novel is a great deal larger than its parts.” Although people may argue Flipped is an ooey-gooey girly book, but Flipped can appeal to guys and girls. Readers would be interested to know, Flipped has very valuable life lessons for guys and girls, it is very descriptive, and also it shows how much a person 's viewpoint can affect a story when the two narrators talk about the same thing but from their point of view. I guarantee Flipped will be a book worth your while if you read it. Wendelin Van Draanen is very good at showing how much a person’s viewpoint affects an event that both experienced.
Artichoke’s Heart by Suzanne Supplee is an amazing book that anyone would be lucky to read. Rosemary Goode is an overweight teen in high school that has personal struggles like everyone else.

Many people including me care about her and her books. She is significant because she is brave enough to write about her rape and brutal events that she has experienced. She also is the best selling author of the book “The Lovely Bones.” Alice found inspiration in her brutal rape and in a disappearance of teenage girls that were never found. Her mother was also a great inspiration to her.

Beloved and The Color Purple are two powerful books that were written in the 1980s by two very intelligent African American women. Both the books and the authors have gone on to win multiple accolades and each book has had a movie based off its story. However, what makes both of these books special is that it was written on the rare subject of the African American woman. The books cover the real hardships that African American women faced in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Every day in class Kiyomi always has a huge smile on her face and is always so positive. She is always so nice and a great friend to have. She is very fun and creative and loves hanging out with her friends during recess.
The women find that though they may be separated by many years in age their stories are similar. The main themes in this book are trust and perseverance. Response: This is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. The writer Christina Kline does a wonderful job of shifting the narrative back and forth between the two main characters, Molly and Vivian. In many books where the narrative shifts it is jarring and often hard to follow, not with this novel.
