Narratively this piece does an incredible job of making the reader feel personally invested in the story. The way Audrey Petty does this is through a multitude of techniques. The point of view is a first person omnipotent, allowing for a closer read to the narrator themselves; the narrative flow is akin to being told the story verbally instead of the traditional 3rd person omnipotence. The narrative is told through indirect narration as well, preventing the style from being to direct. This allows the reader to go at their own pace with a more passive mood. Lastly, the speech.
Like most famous authors that we look at, they have all passed on, but Margaret Atwood not only has set herself up a legacy, but also continues to do so.

She started her studies at the age of sixteen and finished some seven years later. Margaret Atwood is a very well known Canadian author that has won numerous awards for her works.

In the story Dead man’s Pocket It shows details and imagery and how they work through the whole story. Details give life to the story and to the characters. While imagery Helps the reader to relate to the character or to the story. When these two literary elements are put together they make the story realistic.
My opinion on the book is that it could’ve been better. I think it would be improved if it
A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer is a story about a child named David, who is a victim of abuse from his mother and tells his story of how he struggles to stay alive, search for food and the problems he has in school. David lives with his mother, father and brothers, but at the end of the book, he feels a strong hatred for his family and a strong hate for the people who knew about the abuse, David also regrets being born and questions if God exists. There are many health issues that happen when abuse happens to a child specifically and these include, “suicidal thoughts, eating disorder, PTSD can develop from a childhood of abuse.” (Rehman, Kazmi, Perveen, 2016). David towards the end of his story began to think that death was the only way he could escape the abuse.

How does a third person omniscient narrator affect a story? The Lovely Bones, a novel by Alice Sebold, is about a girl named Susie who is raped and killed. After being killed, Susie goes off to Heaven and we are shown how she adapts to living in heaven. We see her killer continue to live among her family and friends, and we see her family fall apart. Susie knows what everyone does and thinks, and she shares this with the reader. Knowing all the character's thoughts allows for a finetune analyzation of the book. In addition, it serves as a way for us to understand certain characters better. Furthermore, we can piece together the bigger picture. By narrating in this unique way, we are able to explore the story deeper than if otherwise, and as a result we are able to have a better analyzation of a meaningful book.
In my honest opinion, I did not like the book; not because of the content, but because very much of the content was repeated. I also did not like how the author inserted an entire chapter about the background of the United States in the middle of the book. It threw my train or thought off and I was not sure about what I was reading. Instead of putting it in the middle, it could have been in the beginning and reworded. The beginning chapter could have been split and added into other chapters because when it talked about the lawyer Jameson, which was not needed until the trial

Unwind by Neal Shusterman -a New York Times Bestselling Author of The Schwa Was Here- is an interesting read. It’s about a boy, Connor, whose parents want to have him unwound. Unwinding is when a person between the age thirteen and eighteen is cut apart, but is still alive; these parts are given to people in need of a new body part. The novel covers Connor’s journey as he runs from the police to avoid being cut apart by the government. This book has many things to like, things to dislike, and connections to discover, although in my opinion few would enjoy it.

If there is anything that stands out in The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, it is the setting. From strange dormitories to dark tunnels to scorched deserts, the reader is in for a crazy ride in which the descriptions of compelling locations are described in much depth. A kind of dystopian book about a group of boys fighting to get through insane physical obstacles would need this type of impressive setting description, and this novel does not disappoint.
The purpose of my paper is to scrutinize closely the concept of social satire, revealing and thereby amending the society’s blight in relation to the novel, The Edible Woman by the Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
In her novel, E. Lockhart uses the abundance of indirect characterization to reveal the theme of power. Throughout the book, Grandpa rules over his daughters to see which one will make an effort to show just how much they want to inherit his island. In chapter 63, you see the children helping their parents win over granddad by flattering him about how great the island is. "When I told granddad how much I adored the house, he smiled and said he knew someday I'd have beautiful children. Then he said Bess was a grasping wench and he had no intentions of giving her my house. But later, Mirren told me he'd promised Windemere to Bess.
The quote I love was “Powerlessness and silence go together” by Margaret Atwood I’d have to agree with her quote because it’s true, when your powerlessness you’re not going to speak you’re going to be silent, I have had this experience when I went to foster care because when I was in it I felt like I had no power like everything just shut down on me and I didn’t speak to anyone for about one week I’m no longer powerlessness now I talk to anybody and, I’m not silent I’m really loud. Today our society is cruel, especially in schools because you got bullies and people who threaten to blow the school up those people think they have the have the power over anybody, but really their powerlessness but some kids might think they have no power because
