Their mother considered them to be one person because they were so much alike and called them “HannahAnna.” Hannah and Anna start to realize they are not one person, but two separate people. With all the noises and strange occurrences you start to try and figure out is someone or something trying to separate them and why. While reading The Girl Behind the Glass by Jane Kelley, readers get involved with trying to figure out who is this ghost and why is this happening. Readers also are trying to gain an understanding about what families experience when life doesn't go the way they have planned. I would suggest this book to read as it is a book that always keeps readers wondering and interested because there are surprises in every chapter.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak The Book Thief is a story narrated by Death and is about a young girl by the name of Liesel Meminger in Nazi Germany whose mother planned to drop her and her brother off with foster parents in the fictional town of Molching, Germany.

The Book Thief: Character Analysis I chose the main character Leisel Meminger in "The Book Thief" because she made so many changes throughout the story and I found her very interesting. This story was a biography that she wrote about herself. Her biography was picked up by Death who had it published after her death. In the story, Leisel is the main character who we hear about from the time she rode on the train with her mom and brother to adulthood. Leisel had many wonderful traits but also some bad traits too.
Cleveland, Ohio police officers went to her house a second time within three hours, after she originally denied consent to search, and forced themselves inside. During this illegal search, the Cleveland police officers found a chest that contained some of the obscene materials they were supposedly looking for. Yet, during this search Ms. Mapp had asked to see the search warrant and as the officer held it too her face she grabbed it and placed it down her blouse. She was then handcuffed as being belligerent and not allowing the officers to conduct the search. There was a little scuffle between Ms. Mapp and the officers, and Ms. Mapp proclaimed that they had injured her during this time of rough handling.
As a direct result of his generosity, he obtained a wife, one of the village girls.

To begin with, in any literary work, the title helps in reinforcing the work's theme and understanding the text better. In Trifles, the title suggests that the play talks about insignificant and superficial theme or action. However, the truth is far from that. As once the reader begins reading the play, he/she is impressed with the turn of the events. In the play, the two women – Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale- who are only brought along with the sheriff and attorney to retrieve some items for a wife – Mrs. Wright/ Minnie foster- accused for killing her husband –Mr.

In the last stanza of the first section Myra goes on to briefly talk about their sex life ‘I won’t repeat what we did.’ In my opinion the way she says this makes her almost come across as she is boasting; which is definitely not victim like behaviour. She also mentions that he also made her bury a ‘doll’ and goes on to list some odd places for a young couple to hang out, for example; ‘playgrounds’ & ‘Fairgrounds’. I believe that the doll represents the first child that Myra Hindley & Ian Brady murdered + buried. The looking at playgrounds and fairgrounds represents the couple scouting for new young victims. So she is willing to help Ian thus not presented as a victim.
I needed a hobby other than sitting around crying about everything, so my mom made the suggestion I shut up and read a book.
