Firstly in both of the novels, a teenager stands out from a society and rebels. I think, authors wanted to point the awareness, power and importance of youth in political/social events and for the future; tried to encourage and promote the youth to be aware and leading community. Also it can be concluded from, even though they include lots of political and social messages which target communities and governments, they are written as novels which can be understood by teenagers and young people. Secondly, in both of these novels some symbols are used. In Hunger Games, Mockingjay symbolise the rebellion and the resistance.
“The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142). In the end, the government couldn’t find Montag, but because everyone was watching the search for him on their TV’s, the government killed an innocent man pretending it was Montag. The society was glad Montag was dead, even though it wasn 't really him. In the book death happens frequently, and it 's enjoyable to them. Violence in the book is a warning because in the future, violence could have a huge impact on our life.
· My biggest goal for this movie is that people who watch it have real serious discussions about it afterward, and obviously that would apply to people who have someone in their family in an abusive relationship, but it would also apply to families where there are sons, talking about what is and isn’t an abusive relationship; and families where there are daughters, talking about warning signs and “How would you handle it if you were with a boy who started to seem controlling?” The best thing about this film is it raises a lot of really important questions, and one of them is “How can such a great girl find herself in this kind of a mess, and how can the boy find himself in it?” When you think about it, they are both understandable. Men learn that to be really manly means to be in control and you certainly don’t apologize to women and you certainly don’t let women control the situation. All you have to do is watch a few hours of television or go to the movies every now and then to realize we are a culture that constantly teaches violence as an acceptable form of behavior, so men learn that. They almost learn that they are wimpy if they are not aggressive, if not pushy. Where they draw the line is tough, because they are also struggling with
It starts on March 4, 1865 and goes day by day until July 7, 1865. It details the events of every day as they go by. The authors also put it in chronological order by counting down the days until Lincoln’s death. The prologue begins with Lincoln having 6weeks to live and each chapter about President Lincoln continues to count down Lincoln’s days until April 14. Once the reader begins the book, they follow the life of President Lincoln, the final days of the war, and the life of John Wilkes Booth’s as they unfold just weeks before the assassination takes place.
She even quotes in the film that Constantine was more of a mother figure to her than her actual mom. Throughout the film we see how bold and courageous Skeeter is. Despite the strict rules the town of Jackson has with coloreds and whites, this doesn’t stop Skeeter from doing what she believes in. Skeeter’s determination and bravery is what stood out the most. Skeeter has a passion for creating a book that will represent the struggles and the everyday lives that maids deal with.
Then chapter twenty-five, “There was a doctor in the town of Green Lake, one hundred and ten years ago,” this kept the story in the in the past. At the end of chapter twenty-six, the author used the sentence that said, “For the next twenty years Kissin Kate Barlow would be one of the most feared outlaws in all the west” (115). The story then in chapter twenty- seven the story went back to Stanly and the other boys in Camp Green Lake. Betsy Hearne wrote that “Hole is a smart jigsaw puzzle that young adults will want to read and solve n their own,” that shows how the book goes through different stories that are meant to be told in one
For example in the Movie Katniss is terrified of the first games. Once when she was hunting for turkeys in district 12 she let her arrow loose and hit the fowl. Although that is not what she saw, she had a horrible recollection of memories of when she shot the boy from district one in the first games. President Snow recognizes Katniss’s fear and soon takes advantage of the situation by saying, “Would you like to be in a real war?”. While he is at Katniss’s house he tells her what he wants her to do and then threaten her.

“The emerging woman… will be strong-minded, strong-hearted, strong-souled, and strong-bodied… strength and beauty must go together.” Introduced to the novel of Little Women at the age of 11, I quickly fell under the trance of Louisa May Alcott’s astounding writing. Louisa May Alcott… Teacher, domestic servant, feminist, army nurse, and most famously, a novelist. Her self-reliance openly resisted the cultural worldview of women’s equality. Her personal literary legacy made a great impact on her society. Alcott wrote Little Women, her most acclaimed novel at the age of 35.
Atticus and Mr. Tate knew that Boo would be killed if the town found out that he had killed Bob Ewell, and so they agreed that Mr. Ewell fell on his knife. When Atticus asked Scout if she understood the situation, she said “...Mr. Tate was right... it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?” (Lee, p. 276). Scout plainly said that Boo Radley is a mockingbird and the events in the story prove it to be true. To kill a mockingbird is to kill one’s innocence and although there were other “mockingbirds” in the book, Jem Finch and Boo Radley were definitely important ones. Their innocence was killed by the evil in the world around them and that’s what makes them mockingbirds.
Her friends eventually came to the conclusion that she is obsessed and they fight over it.

A battle begins and Katniss kills Cato at the threat of him killing Peeta. They thought they won but a gamemaker reverses the rule change previously announced.
Cuts by Patricia McCormick really could have been a powerful book that pushed teens to seek help. Instead it became a shallow mockery of the real struggles and burdens that many teens face. Anyone who has not faced these struggle would have a warped perspective of them after reading this book. I would consider it an almost dangerous book due to the almost constant message that self-harm isn’t bad, that it actually feels great and is good stress relief. The only positive take away from this book is how it consistently states that help is out there if you look for
Katniss is the girl who gets sent in from her district. And Peeta Mellark, a boy who has always had a crush on Katniss, is sent in as well. they are sent in to fight each other, but they don’t, they stick together, and they both win because they threaten the capitol by saying they will eat poisonous berries so they can’t have a winner. The fight the other districts and the capitol for their life and they get what they want. In the end we now know that “Divergent” and “The Hunger Games” are very similar.
