I believe that my book tears of a tiger should be produced into a movie because; it is a bestselling book, and sends a positive message to teens. The story line is based on the death of Andy’s friend Rob he had died in a tragic car accident while they were drinking, and driving. Why I believe it’s a positive message to teens it is because that helps them realize how sever drinking and driving really is and the consequences to it. I also feel that it shows that suicide is never the answer, since Andy had committed suicide, because of the guilt he felt towards the death of his friend. I believe that if the book is made into a movie the filming location should be a high school, for the reason that it mostly takes place there, and also on a high way where the accident can take place. I also feel that the actors to play these roles should be quality actors I don’t really mind which actors are used in the production but I want them to be able to really play the roles right. In conclusion, I strongly believe that my book will give a message to teens and young adults that they should be more cautious on the road and that everything will get better soon they shouldn’t commit suicide because of guilt. It is also because if they do then they will be dearly missed by friends and family. This is why I think my book will be good enough to be made into a movie. b aspects.

Dear Veronica Roth,
Your book Divergent was wonderful! I really loved it. It made me think about how much a person can actually change in a short time. For example: Tris was really nervous with what faction she was going to choose, and how she was nervous, worried, and a little scared during the dauntless initiation. Then she started to get stronger, braver, and careless about herself, this reminds me of how nobody ever really stays the same. That every single day someone overcomes a fear, or goes…

Discuss how important it is (or not) to have knowledge about an author in order to interpret their work.
While some argue that having knowledge about an author in order to completely and fully understand their work is unnecessary (such as the practice of "close reading" which is to read a literary text without any authorial knowledge, something that is used by New Critics), others vehemently believe that having a contextual background of a text is crucial. It is seen as vital to know the authorial…
Children across America often have their first exposure to literature through the form of
picture books. These books are often filled with images that will resonate in the child’s mind,
and contain a moral in which the child should learn from. Perhaps the most famous author of
children’s books is Theodor Geisel, who wrote under the pen name Dr. Seuss. His works are
celebrated in elementary schools nationwide on Dr. Seuss day, and four of his stories have been
adapted into movies. However, Geisel’s most distinct legacy can be found in his distinctive…
