This book is so simple, yet so intricate at the same time. If you are looking for a book to lift your spirits, this is the book for you. Rosemary Goode is a character that I think anyone can relate to, no matter how they look. Artichoke’s Heart is incredible, and I would like to acknowledge the hard work and dedication that Suzanne Supplee put into the
The writer and teacher, Lindsay Rosasco, creates strong diction through the use of informal word choice. Her diction style relates to her audience, who are teenagers in high school. She is trying to convince them that she is not out to get them, she just wants the best for all of them. Rosasco doesn’t use a higher level of vocabulary or more grandiose style because if she did, then teenagers could turn away from the text and she is writing like how the students talk. By doing this, she lets the readers know that she understands how they live.

Tanner’s house trying to help Mr. Tanner find the Ivory-billed woodpecker and this creates the mood of hopeful.On page 27, it said”When she got home that night,covered in mud,exhausted,her neck sore from looking up all day,she told her family she was giving up.Gills ever give up Hannah’s father said...we will help you Hannahs mother said”(smith). This confirms that hannah won’t stop looking for the ivory-billed woodpecker because Gills never give up.Then Hannah’s family will help hannah to look for the woodpecker to so that Mr.Tanner can have his property protected. In contrast,In “Following Boo”,Nathan goes inside the woods tripping and and getting cut by the things around him but then the cut on his foot disappears when he puts his foot in a stream,this creates a mood of interested.An example is “Let’s go, I finally told Boo.And that’s when I noticed it:The skin on my feet was completely healed-new as baby’s skin.How could that be possible?I shivered”(pyron).Based on this evidence the setting creates the mood interested because from that detail Nathens foot got healed as new as baby’s skin. That would interest someone because skin does not heal out of nowhere. In conclusion, these two stories have setting that creates two different moods.

He called his sister Iza over to look at Ayla’s eyes, because Ayla is crying.

For example in “How helicopter parents are ruining college students” Academic Advisor and associate professor at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Dr. Marla Vannucci stated that “I had a college-aged client whose parents did her homework for her. The mother didn’t want her daughter to struggle the same way she had.” The daughter, however, “has grown up to be an adult who has anxiety attacks anytime someone asks her to do something challenging” because she never learned how to handle anything on her own. “It really breeds helplessness” (Joyce p.1). Parents not letting their children make mistakes and figure things out on their own, cause’s long-term problems to occur in how the child reacts to the challenges within adulthood. In “No, helicopter parents aren’t ruining kids after all” the author inserted information that stated “The NSSE survey didn’t find a lot of HP going on, but students who did have such parents reported “higher levels of [academic] engagement and more frequent use of deep learning activities.” In fact, children of helicopter parents were more satisfied with every aspect of their college experience” (Kohn

Failure to Express From as far back as I can remember, shyness made me scared to speak up for myself. In fifth grade, I distinctly remember being unable or unwilling to speak with my teacher. I had had a skiing accident where I had broken my jaw in the mishap. The accident caused me to have to stay home from school for about six weeks. My teacher sent home work for me, so I diligently finished everything, in hopes of making my teacher proud.

Carol says she needed to go to the store to get diapers or something, so she took her sister 's car without her permission. Carol says her sister left the back door open, so she went into her house, grabbed the keys nd went to the store. Carol and Ever were neighbors at the time. Well, oh her way to the store a deer jumped out in front of her, and she didn 't have enough time to apply the breaks, so she had hit it, and damaged the car.
I just finished the novel “ The Northern Light” by Jennifer Donnelly. The sad story of 16 years old Mattie Gokey working very hard with her father on a farm moved my heart badly. Her mother died because of poverty and cancer, her brother left home afterwards and she had to take care of her three younger sisters while also struggling with money just to make her mom’s wish. She cleaned the house of her Aunt and worked as a waitress too in Glenmore Hotel to save money. It reminded me of my past when I came to U.S in 2011.
