Sir Walter Scott wrote in his diary that the talent of Jane Austen as a realist was the most wonderful he had ever met with. That young lady had a talent for describing the involvements, feelings and characters of ordinary life .It is this quality of Realist that makes her appeal fresh forever .Literary enthusiast in all the ages and from everywhere in the world are able to associate themselves with her work The realism of Jane Austen is more truly psychological than that of Richardson, for it is free from the tragic obsessions of moral conscience. With its greater freedom, it acquires greater purity. [Legouis
But, in the end, it all worked out because both characters were happy with their own lives and grateful to get out of their original home country. I thought this book was intense and a suspicious read. I never knew really what was going to happen next with the “secret doors” and where they could take you. The dystopian refugee story was a hook and I thought it was political and fun story to read with some romance. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys an easy read with a big plot.
In addition, when she had to take her Abuela to church, she started to pray really loud and make a fool out of herself. At that moment, she just wanted for her grandmother to go away. In the end, Abuela is infuriated and enraged at Connie for treating her so incompetently. Because we both had similar experiences and thoughts, we both learned the same moral. Unlike the way we both acted, family should be valued because it is more important than pride.
During the school year, they lived together in Downtown Brooklyn, and travelled to. Once Jacqueline has tasted the sweet life of freedom and privilege in New York, she realizes how ignorant she was about Greenville. Her Grandmother had been protecting her from the racism and segregation that permeated the town like a disease. Through metaphor and character growth, it seems obvious that Woodson is trying to convey the theme that perceptions of home can grow and changes as one grows older. One inference to be made in the story is when Woodson’s Grandmother warns her to stay away from the poison ivy slowly choking the base of a tree in their backyard.
In the book To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper lee, Aunt Alexandria visits the finch’s house for a while. In her visit Aunt Alexandra feels like Atticus isn’t racing his children properly and because of this Aunt Alexandria pursues Scout to be more lady like since she’s a girl even though scout disagrees. “I could not possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches; when I said I could possibly do nothing in a dress, she said I shouldn’t be doing things that required pants. Aunt Alexandria’s vision of my deportment involved playing with small stoves, tea sets and wearing Add-A-Pearl necklace she gave me when I was born; furthermore I should be a ray of sunshine in my fathers lonely life.”pg,Lee This shows that Scout doesn’t want to be a stereotypical girl, but Aunt Alexandria is pursuing her to be more lady-like just because of her gender . To this day people still stereotype females.
Going to Grandma Dowdel’s house influences Joey and Mary Alice, although it is not in a good way usually. During their trips to her house, they learn things like how mean Grandma can act towards her people in her neighborhood. For example, starting on page 91, we are told that Miz Eubanks, someone from the neighborhood, comes to Grandma’s door to supposedly get her daughter, Vandalia, back. She says that they have Vandalia, which Grandma is unaware of. Since Grandma would not let Miz Eubanks enter her house,
She comes with a new attitude and news she has changed her name form Dee to Wangero. She changed her name because she thinks her family doesn’t value their heritage, so she changed it to keep it alive.

Dee thought Maggie can’t appreciate the heritage behind it, but their mother hopped that Maggie would use it for everyday use, exactly what Dee didn’t want. In the end of the story Maggie and her mother sits outside on the yard watching Dee drive away.
Lola enjoyed the “feeling in [her] blood, the rattle” that she got when she told Karen to “cut my hair” (418). She thought this was the feeling of freedom and finding out her new identity. To continue and amplify this feeling, the thought of nullifying her mother, who represents the hardship of keeping a distinct cultural background seemed like the way to go. This is when she travels to Wildwood to suppress the idea that she will remain a “slave” to a lifestyle that she does not belong
She was about five years old, and she was wearing a purple Rapunzel dress like Kaley’s. “It’s going to be ok.” Kaley’s mom reassured her trying not to panic. We stood there for about two mins thinking what we should do. It was really hard to do that when there is a little girl crying in you ear, a fireworks show going on, and trying not to panic. We finally decided to take her to the main gate.
Constancia is made known to the reader as a socially-caring teenager, arguing over taking her “embarrassing” grandmother to church, “[Her] father [decided] that he should stay home with my mother and that I should escort la abuela to church. He [told] me this on Saturday night as [I was] getting ready to go out to the mall with my friends.’No way,’ I [said].” (Ortiz Cofer 1). Constancia is reluctant to take her grandmother to church, since she believes that it is something that would ruin her social status among her friends. Though, even when Constancia takes her grandmother to church, she still feels to protect her social status than to help her poor grandmother, who is lost. Constancia ends up learning of her grandmother’s hardships, and drops the selfish character, saying, “That’s when I’m sent to my room to consider a number I hadn’t thought much about—until today.
In conclusion, Before You Go is a great book with a great storyline that will keep the reader reading for hours. The storyline isn 't the only factor that created such a great book. The theme and mood also played a big role in creating the book. Even though the book is great, there was one flaw that I believe should have been fixed. Despite the book being so small the author did an amazing job writing the story.
