The development of young characters can be seen throughout the novel with the shift in responsibility to be a parent from Ma and Da to Audrey and Devon. “Sometimes, as Da had done, Devon took a thing to town to pawn. He pawned the box that Grandda’s money had come in and brought home second-hand shoes for me.” (135) Further, this can also be seen with Izzy’s adjustment to the rural farming conditions from a previous rich city life and Audrey’s brave decision to work for the selfish pig farmer; even little Harper realises that the world is not just fun and games. Despite the Flute family despising Vandery Cable, Audrey, transitioning into the role of a mature and dedicated second mother, takes this burden upon herself as she values her family’s welfare over her own. The courage and bravery needed to fill the shoes of the previous dependent characters shows how the next generation is helping to ease to hardships faced by the community. Being brave and facing ones fears is the only way to achieve anything in these merciless times and by Audrey facing her fears for the benefit of her family, we can see her develop from a young and naive teenager into a mature and independent adult. The bravery and sacrifices made by the young generation to support

It all started when Ella’s father died. Though we were all disheartened by this, Ella took it one step too far. She would cry herself to sleep for weeks, and weeks turned into months, and months turned into annoyance. I realized I had to do something about this, so I assigned Ella chores to do to keep her from grieving. But, I didn’t give her a thousand chores like she says I did; I only gave her a couple. All was going well with Ella-well, at least I think. She never

What do you think it would be like to have a curse? Probably it would be challenging. My favorite part of the movie is when Lucinda shows up in her room in the begging of the movie to give Ella the curse because it is where the story begins. When I first saw that part I think what is going to happen with her curse? I recommend the movie than the novel because the movie brings everything to life so you can see what will happen.

When the four children, Chris, Cathy, Cory and Carrie, arrive at Foxworth Hall, their grandmother, Olivia hides them in the attic.

There are two variables and one constant in Amelia’s world. The first variable, is Amelia herself; a dynamic, restless mind, spontaneous and absolutely insane. The second variable, is the intricate patterns tattered along olive skin, course lines messily adorning her face, fading in and out of light, changing regularly. The constant is art; art will never betray her.
Ella was a too young of a child to understand what adoption meant. She was not able to understand that here adoptive parents were going to stay with her and not abandon her like her birth parents. Her analysis said, “it became apparent that her parents’ inability to understand the emotional needs of a young child led to psychological abandonment and severe breaches in their role…” (Kaufman, 2013) Ella’s parents told her when she was too young to understand that they were going to be with her forever and that her birth parents were temporary. The child did not understand the difference between permanent and temporary and that made her feel like she would be abandoned again. Being told to young confused the child because she was not capable of understanding everything she was being told. The confusion from her early age made her emotional development troubled and she thought she was

They continued to shift items back and forth between them, and then put their things into separate canoes and carried them down to the opposite shore of the island. Decisions must have been made between them, and Shomachsom, the smaller Indian that Ina hated, came over and took Amelia, and put her into a canoe with him. Ina and Christopher were led to the other canoe with Conesteago. The water was murky, deeper and swifter on this other side of the island, and their Indian captors had to paddle hard against the current to go upstream. She could tell by the moss on the trees and the stars she had seen last night, that they had been pushing towards the north. Traveling by canoe was a mixed blessing for Ina. She was so exhausted from all the walking and carrying her baby it was good to be able to sit. She had the chance now to put Christopher down by seating him at her feet in the bottom of the canoe. Christopher seemed content with the new experience of riding in the canoe and the movement of it. She was sure Amelia needed to get off her feet too; her little legs must be even more tired. But, she was with Shomachsom, that evil acting savage. Ina was grateful Conesteago had power over him and felt Amelia was safer because of
