Book Report #4 The book I read this quarter was Glory Be by Augusta Scattergood. Its Lexile level is 680. This book is about a 11-year old girl named Gloriana Hemphill, who now comprehends how much racism is a problem in her hometown in Mississippi in 1963.
In fact, Neil was born in Newark into a lower-middle-class family. Since his parents moved to Arizona to have their asthma treated, Neil has been living with his Aunt Gladys and Uncle Max who lead a modest lower-middle-class life. I thought of my Aunt Gladys and Uncle Max sharing a Mounds bar in the cindery darkness of their alley, on beach chairs, each cool breeze sweet to them as the promise of afterlife. . . . For a while I remained in the hall, bitten with the urge to slide quietly out of the house, into my car, and back to Newark, where I might even sit in the alley and break candy with my own. (Roth 15,
(Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society. Hester was allowed to assimilate back into the community. John proctor was only given one chance to save himself and his wife, and that chance forced him to fall out of God’s good graces by lying. John Proctor fancied death over the guilt of being a sinner, and was content with knowing that his refusal to confess to witchcraft would preserve the good that he believed was still in him.
This periscope shows the extreme passion these two TB infected teenagers had for each other, while also conveying his numbed sadness for the loss of this amazing person that had changed him forever. There is also a hidden tone in the work, though: pessimistic views and hopeful views. Of the two, Lane is the hopeful half who made remarks such as, “There’s a difference between missing someone and mourning them. And I hold out hope that one day I will no longer mourn Sadie, that I will simply remember her, and smile sadly, and then I’ll keep
Scout feels uncomfortable around the proper ladies because the ladies laugh at her answers to their questions. Although Scout prefers to socialize with men rather than women, she tries to make her aunt proud of her by acting properly. “After all, if Aunty could be a lady in a time like this, so could I,” Scout thinks proudly to herself. Perhaps the most significant example of Aunt Alexandra’s care for her children occurs after Tom Robinson’s trial. Aunt Alexandra shows care for her niece and nephew because she worries where the children have gone.
In the small town of Endora, Iowa, Gilbert Grape (Johnny Depp) is given the responsibility of caring for Arnie (Leonardo DiCaprio), his brother who is mentally challenged. The movie opens with the two waiting for the many tourists' trailers to pass through town during an annual Airstreamer's Club, that they watch every year. His mother, Bonnie (Darlene Cates), gained a massive amount of weight after her husband killed himself in the basement of the home they still live in. With nothing to do but eat and watch TV Bonnie went from the most beautiful woman in Endora to nearly five hundred pounds. Bonnie being unable to care for the household, Gilbert becomes plagued with the responsibilities of repairing the old house and looking after Arnie, while his sisters Amy (Laura Harrington) and Ellen (Mary Kate Schellhardt) finish what Gilbert can’t.
He worked at a cash register at a small suburban towns store about 5 minutes away from the beach, right in the middle of town. “ In walks these three girls in nothing but bathing suits ” ( Updike 1013 ). One is the obvious leader ( Sammy mentally nicknames her Queenie ) because she is the leader/queen of her two friends that just seem to follow her around and stand in her shadow. They came into the store, looked around, went and asked Mcmahon at the meat counter something, got the item they needed and then came up to purchase the one item. That one item her mom requested her to get was Kingfish Fancy Herring snacks in pure sour cream.
My mother resembled a Hollywood starlet whirling around the living room in her taffeta dress. This was the first time I had seen her smile since daddy left. He had been on a Navy ship for as long as I can remember, this time aboard the USS Princeton in Korea. In his absence, mommy had grown restless and happily accepted a job at the Rialto bar, conveniently situated below our upstairs apartment. “Rosie, this is perfect,” she said, “You can look after the little ones while I work.”
The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants, written and published by Ann Brashares in 2001, is a book about four friends, spending the summer apart sharing pants that magically fit them all. The cinematic version was released on May 31, 2005, with a similar yet very different storyline compared to the young adult novel. For the most part, the cinematic version did a mediocre job at recreating the basic foundation of the book. For instance, the book starts out with Carmen, a heavier half Puerto Rican girl, thrift shopping with one of her best friends Lena and Lena’s sister Effie. Carmen buys the pants, but throws them in the back of her closet only to be found again at the beginning of summer.

I would work at Little Lake and on the weekends the students would sit outside relaxing and listening to music from Lisa Magee portable 8-track player. The generosity of the staff and how they loved us was a big deal to me. Uncle Paul (The cook) had so much trust in my
Albo continues by recounting her satisfying car ride home while snacking on a bag of pistachios. Albo writes: “We drove home too busy to / talk, caught in the rhythm of crack shell nut...” While a significant amount of Albo’s poems narrate events from her childhood, she also writes about experiences with her daughters. In “Little Kids, Little Problems,” Albo shares a narrative of when her daughter was an infant: When she was an infant, her colicky wailing would cease once she was tucked under my arm in body-warmed sheets.
The lighting was soft and warm, making her seem motherly and kind. Another way the film differed from the movie and made Curley 's wife appear more compassionate was the cutting of the scene where she was so glaringly racist and rude to Crooks, Lennie and Candy. Although the director kept some of the content of this conversation, he cut out the lines that would give a bad impression of her to those watching. Overall, the director puts his own spin on the story, making Curley 's wife less vulgar and insensitive and adding romance and tenderness into the story. Though not dramatic or outrageous, the modifications made between the novel and the motion picture change the way
The killing of her father works, but they should exchange some witty banter. The flashback with Angelique regarding the women slaves is not needed, it hinders the pace, and her backstory is enough. Angelique can 't hurt Leigha and this shows her vulnerability and makes her complex.
In spring of 2013, I went to Hawaii on the band spring trip and I loved it! We spent a week there and I cried when we had to board the plane back home. People see pictures of how beautiful it is over there, but they just do not do the Aloha state any justice. Like Hawaii the Florida Keys has beautiful waters, and wildlife. I have always dreamt of living on an island and if I had to choose a place it would be one of these two.
