Due to the high content of adventure in these books, Harry Potter fans are mostly young teenagers and young adults. The words of magic and a pretend life where with the flick of a wand all the dishes could be done are appealing. With the Twilight series it is the tale of a handsome vampire and a fragile, clumsy human who fall in love and have to face the hardships of their relationship. The Twilight series offers a love story intertwined in all four books, as well as a love triangle and a strong connection with three of the main characters, as well as a step into a world of fantasy with vampires and werewolves. As a result of the romance aspect, fans of all different ages are drawn to the books, young or old, male or female.
Professor McGlynn described the first building block of a memoir by stating, “by looking inward, a memoir looks outward.” Much like in Fun Home, the closer you dive into specific details or tiles of the comic, the more clearly you see the deeper meaning of the memoir itself. We have discussed this numerous times in our class discussions from our panel assignments. An example of this is how Bechdel uses many different novel references in relation to her own life experiences. Perhaps the most frequent one is to Odysseus. On pages 214, 215 of Fun Home she compares the fear of her own sexuality to Odysseus being stuck on Cyclops Island.
The youth described above is six-year-old Jean Louise “Scout” Finch. In the powerful novel, To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, Scout is like most children: loud, playful, and energetic. She can be rude, demanding, and rowdy, which causes a problem for some around her. Scout is naïve at this stage in her life, and has much to learn about society, etiquette, and most of all, morals. In her small town full of gossip, lies, racism, and more, will Scout be able to blossom into a mature, wholesome, young woman?
It’s Me, Margaret because it’s one of those books that everybody except me had read – it’s a classic! But here’s my thoughts on reading it as a 14-year-old girl who got the opportunity to read it as an actual pre-teen.. Published in 1970, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret seems to be Judy Blume’s most famous novel Margaret Simon likes long hair, tuna fish, the smell of rain and things that are pink. At 11-years-old, she’s just moved from busy NYC to the quiet suburbs – Farbrook, New Jersey – where she’s faced with a whole bunch of weird new firsts.
Although I have probably been raised with more of a negative reinforcement, I tend to use positive reinforcement. Another example is, my sister doesn’t like to go to school so she skips a lot…well to get her to go and get excited about it, whenever she does go I fist pump her. She smiles really big and says thanks. This week she has not missed one day. I think the best example of positive reinforcement that I have used was when I was trying to get my little cousin to grow up and stop acting like a baby.
Throughout the story, they all perceive and use sex differently. When Beli was younger, her power came from her anger and her longing to understand her past and future. But once she hit puberty, things started to change. “A terrible beauty [was] born. Where before Beli had been a gangly ibis of a girl, pretty in a typical sort of way, by summer’s end she’d become un mujeron total, acquiring that body of hers, that body that made her famous.” And what was at first an embarrassing surprise soon became a way to feel loved and accepted, or so she thought.

This topic should be pretty interesting and fun to learn about I’m sure that everyone has had some horrible hair dyeing experience and it seems like shaving your hair would be the only solution so that’s why I chose this topic for the people who don’t like to waste money on expensive hair salons can do it now by themselves at home or at a friend’s house. But like I said before they got to make sure to know what they’re doing they can’t just say, “Oh, I’m going to die my hair and make it look like celebrity”. No! That won’t work in that case it’ll be better to go to a professional place. I’m going to do my sisters hair she has it light brown mixed with blonde bangs.
The mom says:” I don’t know how to read or write, and I’m askin you to help me.” The woman then begins to smile, she feels good about herself because she’s superior and the mom is inferior. It shows that the mom is a loving and caring mom whose only intention is a better education for her daughter. This also means less humiliation and a brighter and happier future for her daughter. The narrator is 1st person and it’s showed by this quote:” I am also wearing yellow socks…” Here we clearly see the using of 1st person with the”I”. It’s also a limited point of view because we have limited knowledge about what’s happening in
