The only way the teacher could do so is by being determined. Members of the Keller family have doubted her; her memories have come back to haunt her, but her soul was pulled through to prove that she is a sound teacher that can teach the six-year-old. In that case, determination deters one from failure. Primarily, determination can take people in different directions.
That takes courage and bravery to know she would willingly suffer just to be addiction free. All the time Jem was reading to her, she probably never heard a single word because she was focused on the clock and craving for morphine. So this is why I think her courageous and brave because she did not take the easy way out, she took the hard way and suffered, but she died a happy person because she achieved her goal to get rid of her addiction before she died. Jem and Scout did not know anything that she was going through they just thought she was some foul and mean person that disrespected their dad. But only understood when Atticus explained what she went through and the pain and
The book Burned by Ellen Hopkins should not be banned and should be kept on shelves. This book had a very unique but very real character who went through a lot of real life experiences. On by the relationships she found to stay in or keep away from and even be cautious of. Another by growing up, thanks to the only person who actually cared for her and was a parent figure (her aunt). Last by how she went through tough situations but how she coped with them.
She perfectly depicts the struggles, sufferings, and salvation that William Faulkner wanted writers to compel the readers with. Walls quoted Dylan Thomas, "Dark is a way and light is a place, Heaven that never; Nor will be ever is always true." She includes this quote because it represents the nature of her past, present, and future. The past that Walls went through with her dysfunctional family, that was like a gem in a pile of rocks. Although her past might be hard, she struggled and achieved the satisfying victory she accomplished in the present and future.
An effective argument is nothing if it’s not convincing to the audience; regardless of how much groundbreaking evidence an author has, they won’t sell a single book if it isn’t persuasive enough for people to pay attention. Marilyn Wedge is no stranger to these devices, as she uses numerous appeals throughout her book A Disease Called Childhood. Written in the height of what Wedge refers to as “an ADHD epidemic,” this book attempts to detail various causes and solutions to ADHD.

Wedge appeals to

The ^ symbol appears in Fun Home as a manifestation of Alison’s obsessive compulsive disorder, representing the phrase “I think.” Alison’s diary appears at numerous points in the novel, acting as a source and showing Bechdel’s thoughts at times in her life. After describing her OCD symptoms and use of ^, Bechdel notes, “my feeble language skills could not bear the weight of such a laden experience” (143). This line can be seen as reasoning for the author to create a graphic novel rather than a work solely with text. The ^ symbol represents Bechdel’s realization that words could not convey the entire meaning of her experiences.
This is the case with Susanna, who is the autobiographical main character of the book. She provides a perfect reason as to why it is important that mental illness must be talked about more.

Sharon M. Draper has used character and an engaging plot to create a novel of contemporary realistic fiction about an eleven-year-old girl living with cerebral palsy. Even though every reader cannot relate to having a disability, almost every reader can relate to Melody’s desire to fit in and be accepted by her peers. Draper uses Melody’s internal dialogue (she is unable to speak) to reveal her personal journey and perspective. The plot further reveals Melody’s internal and external struggles as she tries to merge her world with that of her peers. While the plot flows logically, Draper adds a twist when our protagonist is left behind and misses the competition.
"You can never really get used to the lack of feeling and the change of sensation, no matter how long you go through it.
