They pursued their happiness though; they had a plan, a dream, and George and Lennie talked about it all the time, ‘“We gonna get a little place,” George began... “Go on,” said Lennie. “How’s it gonna be. We gonna get a little place”’ (146). In reality their dream of having their own little place was a little far-fetched, but they always had a small glimmer of hope and they continued to pursue their happiness. However, their happiness

The outlier, in the end, is not an outlier at all" (285) just normal human beings who are given extra tools to work with. These tools are the components to success. Three of these components are putting in ten thousand hours of practice, having negotiation and communication skills, and being in the right place at the right time.

Night John is a great story to hear. It shows you what slaves went through and how they were treated. Slaves were not treated kindly. They would have their limbs cut off or be whipped if they did something wrong. That isn’t fair for them at all. They went through a lot to please the whites that owned them. The whites were very greedy and cruel and did not care about the slaves.
Even when Joe is sick and dying, he still has power and control over Janie. He doesn’t want her to take care of him. Instead he consults with a doctor.

and Marcia. Ponyboy's parents were killed in an automobile accident, leaving him and his two brothers on their own. Learning about 1966 in Oklahoma and the plot of the story was very interesting. My overall favorite character was ponyboy. He is about my age and he is a kid almost everyone you can relate to. Although, my least favorite character was Dally, Dally is a kind guy but often thinks of himself and is very selfish. He eventually kills himself after Johnny passes away which makes the book kind of depressing.
