In reading Avil Beckford’s review she was on point with everything about the book.

Not all choices are easy and there are many that can affect your whole life. When looking at her review I did see some grammar and even some mistakes in names. I saw that she misnamed someone while summarizing, “Gabby Holland moves next door to Matt, and she moved to the small town to be closer to her boyfriend, Kevin,” where the name Matt is, that is supposed to be Travis (Beckford, Avil).

When looking at The Author to Her Book we can appreciate Anne Bradstreet on a personal level. This understanding happens by the way she views her own work, which was presumably published without her consent. Bradstreet refers to the book as her “child” that was snatched. Therefore, was not fully grown when it was sent off into the world, and even calls it “ill-form’d” and “irksome” to her sight.

I wrote this essay because I wanted to know how my grandma's life influences mine, and I wanted my readers to know that even the differences could become one's inspiration and supports.

However, after reading Raymond Carver, Mentor, I thought I could write about people who are close to me. For this reason, I chose my grandma. While I was writing this essay, what’s interesting was I realized that my grandma's life is completely different from mine.

Generally, the strongest sense of belonging for an individual is through relationships, and through the vast concept of nature is what fulfils an individuals needs of social interaction and enhance others involved.
