  • Writings In Kid's Stuff, By Michael Chabon

    In “Kid’s Stuff” by Michael Chabon, the author is trying to explain to the audience how the writing of comics must be changed in order to appeal to modern day children. Originally, the goal of a comic book writer was to appeal to adults and to get readers to think of comics as a legitimate source of literature instead of something that kids read to pass the time. In the process of doing so, kids stopped reading comics as much. While some adults picked comics up, the sales numbers went down over…

  • Personal Narrative: My Passion For Books

    For a long time I had absolutely no interest in books and even less interest in writing. No one encouraged me to read or write, no one cared. My passion for books was purely accidental and effortless. It sparked and bursted to life, burning like a forest fire over night. Learning how to read wasn’t difficult for me, I just didn’t care. While I went through first grade I never picked up a book and tried to read, I would just stare at the pictures; they were more interesting. I was in Germany at…

  • Freaks Like Us By Susan Vaught: Personal Analysis

    why I adore words so much. My favorite example of communicating that “complex emotion” part is a book called Freaks Like Us, by Susan Vaught. The Public Library Teen Summer Reading Challenge decreed I read it the summer going into eighth grade, and earned the title of “first book to make me sob uncontrollably”. It’s about a schizophrenic boy everyone calls Freak. He’s suicidal. Readers feel the book, a decisive lack of adjectives form intense backgrounds and long sections omitting punctuation…

  • Rodot Lizad: A Short Story

    got up, she wrote down what she remembered of the dream, and titled the printer-paper booklet 'Rodot Lizard '. This would be her first of many small, sloppy stories. If you look back at that story, it seems a little far-fetched. A child writing a book?....for her own amusement?.....it can 't be real, right? Well, let me be the first to tell you, it is very much real. I am that little girl, thirteen years in the future, and I still have a copy of that booklet I wrote. Given, it 's not exactly…

  • Suicide In J. K. Rowling's Thirteen Reasons Why

    long ago, but the first books I read were books with pictures and very little words.

Stine’s Goosebumps series, which lasted throughout the sixth grade. In middle school, I started to read J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series. My favorite types of books are book series. I do enjoy books that don’t have…

  • Assisted Suicide Thesis

    some articles online and went to two local libraries. I used the search engine Google and at the libraries I used Destiny Library Book Search, which is the system both libraries use to catalog their books.

"We Don 't Let Our…
