In the historical fiction novel Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, the central character Billie Jo faces many adversities that could have crushed her hopes, dreams and spirit. The author Karen Hesse, states, “the way I see it, hard times aren’t only about money, or drought, or dust. .Hard times are about losing spirit, and hope, and what happens when dreams dry up.” This quote means that the way the author sees it, the hard times in Billie Jo’s life aren’t always on the surface, as she faced losing her sense of self, her optimism, and her goals she wished to achieve. Billie Jo is confronted with the challenges of her strained relationship with her father, as well as guilt over her mother’s death, yet she is able to hold onto her spirit, hopes,

ile planting my flowers, yesterday, Doodles, the cat, meowed to go outside. I let him out on the deck, thinking I could keep an eye on him while working. Afterall, I know all the areas he visits. Imagine my fear when I didn't see him! My husband and I called, walked the neighborhood, drove around, searched everywhere. But no Doodles. In the photo is a picture of our neighbor's extra 6 car garage where Doodles once visited. I thought he may be behind it. So off I went into the woods.

On the otherhand, after two hours of being gone, Doodles returned home through the woods. I saw him coming. I

My favorite character in the story “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi”, is Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. The author of this story is Rudyard Kipling. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is the hero in the story, or the protagonist. He is a brave and kind mongoose who is afraid of nothing. Everyone looks for him to beat the bad guy in the story. Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is heroic, kind-hearted, and brave.
The author describes Nag in a very detailed way with words that make a character seem powerful. In the text it says,”Then inch by inch out of the grass rose up the head and spread hood of Nag, the big black cobra...” This evidence illustrates a very power-craving, evil, venomous cobra. When a reader is reading the word “cobra” they instantly think evil or vicious because of the poisonous venom that a cobra uses to kill its prey. So when the author puts the word “cobra” into the text the readers imagine a huge wicked snake. In conclusion, the author effectively describes Nag.
