Sal wonders if Mr.Birkway will take Mr.Cadaver away then everything will go back to normal. However, the day that Mr.Cadaver told her how her and her father met, Sal figured that Mr.Cadaver wasn’t a bad person that she wanted to get rid of anymore. Sal didn’t want to believe Margaret Cadaver, until she saw the bus along side the overlook in Coeur d’Alene. She realized that the only reason why Margaret hung out with her father was because they were close friends that connected with her mother. Sal believes that Margaret is not the crazy person that she thought of as before because she now knows that she was a big help to her family.
It reminds me of dry leaves.”’. Phoebe is describing to Sal why she is scared of Margaret Cadaver. Each of her reasons are crazier than the last. Also, Sal says on page 20 “ This was Phoebe’s power. In her world no one was ordinary.
These three events change the way Phoebe looks at the world. When she found out that she has a half brother, Phoebe changed her perspective of her family, and was really angry at them. “Mrs. Winterbottom said, “You're mad at me, aren't you, Phoebe?” “Yes,” Phoebe said. “I most certainly am.” -pg.
As Maya Angelou once said,”We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” This is astonishingly true for the character Sal. Sal went through numerous traumatizing things that impact Sal’s life and emotions in some big ways. I the book, “Walk Two Moons,” by Sharon Creech, external forces greatly shift Sal’s life in different direction. One of the most significant external change that changed Sal’s life, was when Sal’s mother left and never came back, because when she left, Sal didn’t feel any emotion. At first Sal thought she couldn’t feel emotion without her mother because when Sal 's mother was there Sal would be like a mirror of her mother.
Both lost their friends in different ways but they both still had a strong friendship. Another example for the theme to be friendship is in the book, “ Raymond’s run” she got close to her brother kind of like in the book, “ Bridge to Terabithia”
Let us say someone encountered a bump in life or something bad happened people will always move past it eventually because people cannot let something weigh them down for the rest of their lives. The big message or idea of these two poems is to keep moving on because people will always have to deal with problems. In “Mother to Son” by Langston Hughes and Still I Rise by Maya Angelou they both convey the message that people should never give up and keep on rising no matter what happens or what people say. Throughout the poem “Mother to Son,” Langston Hughes coveys that people should always keep pushing towards their goals and not give up. To express this the author uses a metaphor which expresses this theme because the author keeps on referring to their life as not being a crystal stair.
The poem Beneath the Shadow of the Freeway written by Lorna Dee Cervantes, and the movie Hidden Figures originally a book written by Margot Lee Shetterly both convey the theme of empowerment to hard-working, strong women who can be just as smart and diligent as a man without the actual help of one. Both Dee Cervantes’ poem and Shetterly’s movie/book voice the importance of being strong willed as a women and making a life for yourself regardless your situation. Two concepts I found in these pieces of literature that I would like to obtain personally is the topic: focus on what you can control, not what you can’t, and cultivate a strong support group to achieve your success. Focus on what you can control, not what you can’t. In the movie Hidden
Her father built mini golf courses but when the stock market collapsed in 1929, he lost everything and they became destitute.

One of the sisters, Phoebe, is made out to be infatuated by sexual desires due to being linked with a man killing demon, known as a ‘Succubus’. The demon kills men for their testosterone, while trying to reveal the demon, Phoebe’s sister Prue gets transformed into a man. Also interesting in this particular episode is that the men who are disrespectful towards the women are the ones that are killed. While stereotypically women were displayed on television in a way that facilitated the “male gaze” in this episode both the male and female gaze are seen, giving a sense of gender equality. The sisters stare with desire at their neighbour Dan while at a dating event and likewise when Prue turns into a man she gazes at women, rather than men.
