She shared her thoughts. "Yeah all the time! Leslie from “Manson’s Lost Girls” is probably the one that left the biggest impression. That was an interesting role because Leslie as a person, from my research, was a very loving hippie — she was a prom princess at her high school and was sweet and nice — she just happened to stumble upon a very charismatic monster. So getting to play that and knowing that that can happen — that people that are good can be influenced to do such evil things — it really stuck with me."
Anne says this because she believes that everyone is good at heart, but some people just decide to show a bad side. This is really a shame because this teenage girl is still happy and living happily while Hitler and the Nazi’s decide to put people that are not up to their expectations into a concentration camp. Anne was a very upspirted girl and was always positive. Anne always would try to spread positivity by being so nice and kindhearted. In the Anne Frank The Diary play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, Anne gives everyone gifts for Hanukkah when they are in hiding, she made the gifts by herself.
It states in the story Lupe, “never missed one day of elementary school. She had received a small trophy for this honor and had been congratulated by the mayor.” This shows me that school is very important for Lupe because she is smart, good at it, and she is dedicated. In addition Lupe got straight A’s and she said she had a razor sharp mind. Straight A’s are hard to get and this proves that she is smart. Another example is that Lupe wins lots of contests.
But, Lupe was a very smart character. She would win almost every school award and would get perfect attendance. One day as she sat on her bed stressing over not being good at sports she picked up some marbles and at the word marbles, she got an idea. “That’s it. Maybe I could be good at playing marbles.” said Lupe.
Waters illustrates the transition to becoming fake that Cady Heron goes through after befriending The Plastics. Her former best friend notices this transition and decides that Cady is “not pretending anymore. [She’s] plastic. Cold, shiny, hard plastic” (Mean Girls). Her craze to become popular eventually results in lost friendships.
The story is fairly objective; the narration is really where the audience gets to learn about the impact of slut shaming. The main character is a teenage girl named Olive Penderghast. She lies to her best friend about losing her virginity; the whole school gets word of this and she suddenly becomes very popular. She then lies about having sex with her friend Brandon so he will stop being bullied for being gay. Brandon’s friends then bribe Olive with gift cards so that she will say she has had sex with them too.
But Liliana Heker manages to effectively create pity for the young protagonist of “The Stolen Party” through the use of dramatic irony and symbolism, as well as a depiction of a sudden, devastating transition between childhood and maturity, The appearance of dramatic irony throughout the piece helps readers start pitying Rosaura. We watch Rosaura progress through the story, unaware of the many hints about her social status in regards to the other party guests, and especially the hosts. We start to feel bad for Rosaura as she goes through the story happily with the idea that everyone was equal in status, how she thought she was “invited because Luciana is [her] friend.” This illusion can be seen in real life, where children are often lied to so that they’re protected from volatile truths. War, terror, and the ugly sides of the world are often concealed until the children have gradually matured by
“I don’t, and he probably does, scum that he is - but I doubt that the other girls are deans” (150). I do like how Wade always has her back, “I could get on the phone and threaten to fly back there and kick his ass” (150) there is something beautiful about their dysfunctional relationship. I love how Wade gushes over her even though I feel like he is smarter than her but he leads not to be. I realized he was a hopeless romantic “Why don’t you write a love story instead” Angelia said. He looked up from his screen in surprise, “You mean like... Our

Esther feels that she must enjoy her time in New York, stay a virgin, and marry Buddy. All of these ideas are what women were supposed to do in the 1960’s; however, not everyone can follow these ideals. In fact, Esther breaks almost all of them: she dislikes her New York trip, has a one-night stand, and breaks up with Buddy. Girls today have to understand how different Esther’s challenges are from theirs, yet The Bell Jar remains a classic novel due to the relatability of Esther’s challenges with mental illness and youthful
What are the similarities and differences between this play and others we have read so far? Be sure to use specific examples and mention details from the other plays we have discussed. - The color wants an abortion but it is different from Maggie because she was fighting the whole play to get a baby. - It has similarities with Passion Play because Mary 1 was a playing a virgin but she was going out to get gays to sleep with her.
