Also, Voldemort literally took his childhood away from him and his parents. That is a reason why Harry Potter 's life is hard. My other piece of evidence of how August 's life is hard is when he goes to his first day of school everyone stares at him because of his deformity on his face. And you can tell that people are whispering and saying that he is a freak.

She is terrified of telling anyone and whishes it never happened, as seen in the book "Anything to get rid of this, these thoughts, whispers in my mind. Did he rape my head too?" (Anderson, 165). In The Odyssey Odysseus had been trapped on Calypso's island for years, and was forced to lay with Calypso, as seen in the reading, "Though he fought shy of her and her desire, he lay with her each night, for she compelled him."

“Samantha...why?” “I had to, Mom” (Fittzpatrick 293). This particular conversation happens in the falling action of the story. Although it is very short, it tells the reader that Sam’s mom was not too happy she told Jase and was very shocked. As said before, dialogue helps the reader stay interested and give a bit more information about the character. Not only were detail and voice key factors of this great piece of writing, but how Fitzpatrick is able to change her reader’s views on topics is just as important.
Prior to AP Language I really enjoyed writing, but during that class my love and ease of writing went away and I often found it to be dull and like a chore. However, after being in VU Composition I feel that my ease of writing has returned and I am able to focus more on improving the details and content of my essays. Even though meeting word requirements can often be tedious, be my last essay, I found it to be an easier task to

Esperanza gets to read poems about how Minerva feels, living in a situation that cannot be fixed due to her position in the household. On the other hand, she knows that Minerva
“Twice or thrice before she had suddenly packed Ethan’s valise and started off to Bettsbridge, or even Springfield, to seek the advice of some new doctor, and her husband had grown to dread these expeditions because of their cost” (pg. 33). The quote shows that Zeena needs impacts Ethan in a costly way. Ethan and Zeena are poor and Zeena 's trip to Bettsbridge only is drowning him in debt
On top of that he had to kill to survive. Many American teenagers complain that they hate their life because their parents took their phones away for the weekend and/or their closet does not have enough clothing in it. Beah’s childhood makes our childhoods seem like paradise. It is important for American teens to read this novel because then they can understand how grateful they should be for the things they have. Beah had to undergo war, and that had many negative effects which some privileged teens would say only happens in books.
This reading went well for me because when I began to read more of the novel, I was actually able to answer my previous question before, making me better understand what I’ve read. However, the most challenging thing was the jealously that the mother had experienced towards Dana because I can actually relate to her and her obsession of their loved one to notice them. The strategies that I used to figure some things out would include me reading at a slower pace to better understand what I was reading, as well as analyzing on how the title can relate to the pages I was reading. Finally, when I read, I remembered tha teariler in the book that Dana concluded that Dana would teleport back to her time whenever her life is in-danger during her time
Her inspiration came from the feelings of writing to an actual experience and thinking of names that are memorable to her. While she told us that reading is a pleasure activity and not for a younger audience to learn from a lesson, she immediately got my attention. The reason was because in most children 's books I have read are all based on lessons, in which it made me stay away from reading because it was so boring.

Through the birth of his daughter, the failure of his marriage, and all other personal relationships after that, she is always there. “Because in all [his] confused half-waking thoughts that swirled in tormenting circles of memories and dreams around [his] marriage and [his] daughter and [his] life, it was always Hanna who predominated” (Schlink 183) So, he decided to “read to Hanna. [He] read to Hanna on tape” (Schlink 183). Perhaps it was guilt for not having sought her out and spoken to her during the trial. Perhaps it was the loneliness that followed Michael around after she left when he was fifteen.
When I think of myself as a writer, I think of a writing struggle. I struggle with getting things done by the deadline, there are times when I feel “on top of the world” this is when I write my best, and there are times when I can’t write at all, I just feel like dying. I went through a lot during Junior year, and it resulted in me being very depressed; which really affected my ability to write. I hate writing when my heart isn’t in it when this happens it leads me to procrastinate, waiting for a spark of motivation but, during Junior year I realized you just have to fake it occasionally and write with only your intelligent mind. My Junior year I decided to take Mr.Davies Dual Enrollment English class, a college level class.
