A good example for doing the right thing is in line 75 -79 when a woman explains her husband made her daughter write an essay, it shows the parents let her choose the result and treated her as a child or young adult. Spying on your child is bad, but only if you do it right and correct kids cant complain. Like in line 66 a women says her husband made her daughter write a essay or other in line 77-78 Jennifer Alsip says she didn’t spy on her daughters but told them she would if they give her a reason to, that’s pretty fair as
Suman Modha Professor Deanna Larsen American Literature 01 December 17, 2015 The Book Thief: Compare and Contrast Riveting, intriguing, and full of emotion, The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak, is a very powerful and dark book. The story takes place during World War II which was a difficult time for the Jews.

In the books Ellen Foster and A Separate Peace the protagonists both go through turmoil and develop who they are as individuals. The narrator, Ellen, from Ellen Foster shows herself as a strong individual that has some baggage that she doesn't let stop her from achieving her ultimate goal, happiness. In A Separate Peace, the protagonist, Gene, was jealous of his friend and did something regrettable that changes Gene’s life and his friend’s forever. How these characters interact with others in the books shows the readers a lot about the identity of the protagonists. Ellen Foster is a book that paints a picture of a damaged girl in a damaged home and her journey to find the perfect family.
He saw a thief and gave her a job never thinking that she would end up becoming his sister- in law. Cal has had to become the strong man that the future king has to me. Only he is haunted by his step mother. In the entirety of the book I can saw that I enjoyed the character Mare by far seeing her grow and change as her entire world was turned upside-down. I may not agree with some of her actions, I still found her character the most relatable.
I enjoyed reading this novel because it’s about a woman, Frances Ann Benedetto, who was abused, physically, emotionally and sexually, by her husband, Bobby Benedetto. This book is about her struggle of fleeing with her 10-year-old son, Robert Anthony Benedetto, who knows nothing of this abuse because his parents always tell him that her injuries are accidents. It also gives you a fitting example of how domestic abuse impacts you and the people around you. I chose this book because when I read the back I was intrigued as to what would happen to Fran and Robert. At the start of the book Fran has already fled with her son from her husband who is a police officer.
One of the values given to Patria is family values. She truly would give herself up to Trujillo for her family in exchange. The only reason the sacrifice did not come through was because Patria was praying to the portrait of Trujillo in the quote provided above. Anyone, and I mean anyone, that would throw the future of their life away for their family to live, definitely loves them with all their
As Pearl faces the same shame as her parents, such as being called “an imp of evil, emblem and product of sin" (Hawthorne, 129), her need for care and attention grows larger. The final aspect of love in the novel is one of the importance and connection to family.

After he died, Mary constantly read books about grief from authors like C.S Lewis, Joan Didion, and H. Norman Wright. Reading those books finally made her realize she wasn’t alone. According to the Heroic Imagination Project, one of the main characteristics of a hero is wanting to help people in need (Cherry, “The Psychology of Heroism”). That’s exactly why Mary wrote the book; she wanted to show broken people they weren’t alone.

If I had to explain James’ mother I would use this quote to do so. His mother was abused, tormented, and wounded by her past life, but her marriage uplifted her. The loss of her husband added to Ruth’s timeline but her timeline ends with her children’s success. This success was due to Ruth’s strong character and her non trivial life. Not only is this quote beautiful and produces a strong emotional connection with James’ mother, it reveals a theme in the book.
As the reader you can really see the strength she gained as a child and it inspires. The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
Such as, you don’t have to face things alone, which is shown in the book when Valerie gets support from friends and Dr. Heiler. Also, that bullying can really affect someone, which is also shown in the book because bullying lead to the hate list. Lastly, forgiveness is key when living your life, which is shown throughout the whole book by Valerie because she must overcome the guilt she has. I would rate this book a for sure 10/10. This book is definitely on the list of the top books I have ever read, but my all time favorite book is “The Fault In Our Stars”, and “Hate List” comes very close to it.
