If I was Your Girl covers many sensitive issues, such as transgenderism (previously known as gender dysphoria) and suicide. However, the way these topics are dealt with makes it easy for readers to understand, and accompanied with a conversation with an adult afterwards, this book would help teenage readers understand these topics clearly. However, the author’s note is a must read, as she deals with the fact that not all transgender women pass (as female) as easily as Amanda. The fact that Russo included a second version for anyone who suspects they are/is transgender is a simple, yet important

With its greater freedom, it acquires greater purity. [Legouis
You will very easily into the story, especially if you have read the first bok. I can understand just how they are thinking and feeling and I could not put the book away from me. I like girls that the book is about, they do as they like and do not let anything stop them, but I think it is a pity that Lena hides her beauty instead of highlighting it. I also think it is good that Bridget starts to play football again, because she is so good and you’ll notice in the book that she really loves it. In my opinion it was very strongly made by Tibby to say to Alex and Maura that she did not want to be friends with them anymore and instead be with those who were counted as losers, because they really were much better friends.

That is what readers most admire her for, her honest yet well written works is where her work was acknowledged. Her way of writing did not seem to have any wrong or right way. Angelou looked up to past literature writers which helped her write down her
Now that I’m a bit older, I can still very much appreciate her pretty words, but I can also better understand her situation and maybe even why the words seemed to flow so freely for her. As a bit of an introvert myself, inner worlds are especially important and can be retreated back to wether surrounded by numerous people or in candid seclusion. For this reason, just as losing my beloved book taught me, I believe Emily Dickinson’s relationship with nature epitomizes the cliche that absence makes the heart grow fonder. In addition of course, to nature itself being her closest
Plus, Keller thoughts are purely based on her imagination of things and on what the people around her tell her, so some situations might have not played out the way she states it. Another point is that her story is an autobiography; everything she shares is just her view on things. Keller does not include other view points in her stories, meaning that she only shared the experiences she wanted to share, not the full story. She may have just included the details that she wanted to incorporate; the ones that make her look good, and excluded the ones that make her seem like a bad individual. When reading the novel, it is acknowledged that there are not many negative issues that Helen shares concerning herself, yet there are numerous positive characteristics that she states, like the fact that she sensed bad for the children at the Perkins Institute for the Blind, making her seem like a kind affectionate individual, which she may be, except there is no confirmation from additional sources.
if this were a novel the sequence of events would change completely but since this is an autobiography the order of events do not need to be followed 100% all the way through. Lois Simmie job is also to entertain the reader which she does by getting actual real information from letters and true statements from real time and events. Part of Lois Simmie’s purpose is to keep the book one hundred percent spot on and she does a very good job by giving dates every time she could. Sometimes there was not a date given this
The ideas presented in Anabelle 's paper reflected on her understanding of Zinn 's history and brought ideas that I, personally, never thought of, which showed her critical thinking skills. She grasped the core of Zinn 's writing thoughts and contributed her own ideas, which I agreed with, and the level of vocabulary and language Anabelle used also allowed for her essay to be easily read and persuasive. I really admired her interpretations because they were accurate and I was able to tell she spent time interpretating Zinn 's words and ideas. Her use of language and certain vocabulary emphasized the points she was getting across, also her quotes. The quotes helped Anabelle 's thoughts, but she didn 't source them, which would had made her essay

I am reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. This memoir gives the reader a peek into the major events encompassing in the unusual life of Jeanette Walls. The reason i decided to read this novel was merely because of the raving reviews of the people around me. They said it was a very quick read because i would have trouble setting the book down and they were very true. The main character is the author obviously and we follow her through her struggles growing up that even follow her to some of her adult life until she finally finds her happily ever after.
