This shows courage because he made her life horrible and was very mean to her by trying to make her cry, but she still very nicely stood up to him. That is why this book shows courage. Although both stories have many things in common, they both also have many of things that they have that are differences between them. For instance In Making Sarah Cry she did nothing about getting bullied and she just kept (stupidly) coming outside.

Especially her main characters who are very close in personality and they both develop the same. Wolf uses the main characters in both books to move the plot both girls experience the same setbacks and turning points.

From the very beginning Byron always had a bad attitude and behavior. Byron was continuously stirring up trouble from the very beginning.

Viktor Frankl once said “When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.” this quote demonstrates the theme of character changing in extreme situations and it is one that continually comes up in The Luck of Roaring Camp and The Outcasts of Poker Flat. In both of these stories characters develop from criminals and dirty people to heroes and respectable men and women. When Mother Shipton is faced with death she sacrifices herself to save Piney, and when faced with the tremendous task of raising a baby the men of Roaring Camp start to act better.
Like in the quote, the child died because the woman’s illness got worse, people can lie about themselves anytime, so a background check would be very useful. Also, other foster parents may have anger issues, have a past of domestic abuse or other problematic issues. Stories are told about the horrors of living with abusive people in the article “The Horror Stories These,” this article has the different perspectives of how the children have suffered, the article states, “staying with a racist foster father who saw him hanging out with a black friend, he beat James, drug him outside, clasped a dog collar around my neck, and cuffed his hand to a Confederate flag rail in front of the doghouse.

Everyday people find the courage to do things they never thought they could do. Some people think courage comes from how strong and brave you are, but I disagree. In To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the main character, Scout, and several other characters, go through events and challenges that change their lives, especially the Tom Robinson trial, which exposed Scout to the evils of racism and stereotyping. Although courage is represented in many ways in the book, I believe courage is the byproduct of overcoming challenges. Miss Maudie had a different view on things like racism and people in Maycomb, which shows how courage is the byproduct of overcoming challenges.
