They fall in love with the idea of royalty. The first thing the Disney Fairytale culture teaches young girls is not that they have to be strong, talented, creative, or smart, but that they must be the fairest of them all (Orenstein). The Disney princess culture teaches girls that their worth is more about beauty and appearance rather than intelligence (Sternberg). Young girls also get it engrained in their head that they should meet their one true love, marry them, and live happily ever after forever. The first released animated Disney princess film was Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

In both novels the protagonists are teenage boys who do not conform to society's standards and expectations. The theme of accepting one for as they are is prominent in both works and is one of the main reasons I enjoy both novels so much. Both of these books have arguments on how one perceives himself. In The Catcher in the Rye, Holden believe he is invincible, like when he attacks Straightlayer on page 50 because of a girl he had feelings for. Another good argument that makes the plot convincing is the discussion back and forth between Holden and Mr. Spencer, where the teacher tells him, “do you blame me for flunking you, boy?”

As a genius, Charlie realized the experiment’s folly. Despite Charlie’s strife with society, he was wrongly used for the experiment. Charlie had faced many conflicts with society, as did most mentally impaired men and women. A testament to this was Frank and Joe; people like them took advantage of people similar to Charlie for something as petty as their own amusement.
When we were slowly approaching our destination, I told them that last year was going to be last time doing something like that because things could’ve been worse. All in all, things that could happen then without nothing happening, wouldn’t be able to be the same exact way now.

The short story “Ransom of the red chief” is a low level comedy that uses hyperboles and comic situations to convey the idea that without full preparation the outcome of the situation can be unpleasant and unpredictable. The ransom red chief is a low level comedy because of the crude humor. The boy being mischievous and zany caused a lot of low comedy with the easy to follow storyline. “Red was sitting on bill’s chest with one hand holding his hair and the other a knife, a shriek came from old bill.”

The concept of this fantasy, fish out of water, coming of age story is excellent. It’s so much fun to see a troubled teen from 2015 transported back in time to 1935. The story is driven by strong themes about finding one’s voice and believing in one’s self. It’s also about connecting and family values.

Both Cristina Nehring and Sherman Alexie recognize that reading can be lucrative activity. However, Nehring and Alexie differ on why, and in what circumstances, reading is a beneficial investment of time. Nehring’s article faults society for exaggerating the intellectual advantage of casual reading. She writes that there are “two very different ways to use books”, with one-way superior to the other.
Writer Sherman Alexie has a knack of intertwining his own problematic biographical experience with his unique stories and no more than “The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven” demonstrates that. Alexie laced a story about an Indian man living in Spokane who reflects back on his struggles in life from a previous relationship, alcoholism, racism and even the isolation he’s dealt with by living off the reservation. Alexie has the ability to use symbolism throughout his tale by associating the title’s infamy of two different ethnic characters and interlinking it with the narrator experience between trying to fit into a more society apart from his own cultural background. However, within the words themselves, Alexie has created themes that surround despair around his character however he illuminates on resilience and alcoholism throughout this tale.
