There are a lot of similarities with the book and the short stories that we read together in class like Initiation. The theme for the short stories is Identity, Love, and Truth.

Lets start of by talking about Identity. In the book Initiation by Sylvia Plath there is a lot of accepting and not accepting certain people for their looks and where they come from.

They both had to do with Identity Love and Truth, and that there’s so much more people don’t see or get. I believe that I deserve a 10 on this journal because I fixed the mistakes you told me to.
