Unwind, a very well written science fiction book by Neal Shusterman. There are a few arguments arguing whether Connor, a male character in Unwind, is a hero or not. According to my opinion on this argument, I would say that Connor is a hero and is not a hero, but goes more towards being a hero. Connor Lassiter is a 16-year-old male in Unwind. He was very aghast when he saw a letter signed by his parents as to Unwinding him. Unwinding is the transplanting of a teen’s body parts to another person who is in need of those parts. In the following three paragraphs, I will tell you what specifically is a hero, why Connor is a hero, and why Connor isn’t a hero.

“I want to be Batman.” That is a typical response from a preschooler if they are asked what they want to be when they grow up. However, heroes are not always wearing capes. They can simply be an Indian man that changed his mindset into something more inspirational. There is one thing that Superman and a policeman have in common. They are both heroes.

They must have a good heart because they are putting themselves at risk for others. The people need to have trust in him because he is putting their life on the line, so they cannot be evil. A true hero isn’t perfect. They have disagreements and bad days, but the motivation to get back up and help day after day is definitely a true hero. Being a hero is tiring, because being a hero is not a one-time thing, so one cannot just do something good for a day and call themself heroes. Being a hero means loving what you do. It means getting up in the morning, ready to help people in any way possible, everyday. Mohandas Gandhi is a hero because he was helpful, had leadership and

Every year as a tradition my family gets together to go on a vacation to Orlando, Florida during the summer. Though it may be the same location every year, we create new experiences with each visit. As a tradition we go on a ten hour road trip to city of Disney World. During the ride we listen to the playlist my dad made for the car ride.Rick Astley plays in the background as we sing along to the classic road trip tunes. Til this day whenever “Never Gonna Give You Up” comes on I immediately reminisce the car rides to Orlando. Upon arriving we explore the amusement parks Orlando has to offer. Every heart jittering ride, particularly ‘The Hulk’ at Universal Studios, is worth the wait just to complete an experience of a lifetime. Each summer I
Growing up with money Amber Pollock had an ordinary childhood and was able to have everything that she wanted and make people follow her, since she was the most popular girl in school.

Stereotypical parents are known to be overprotective towards their younglings. All parents are concerned about their teens, yet some parents tend to go overboard. Parents need to learn when to monitor and when it is too much. In the article “The Undercover Parent” (2008), Harlan Coben proposes that parents should use spyware to supervise their teens. Coben argues that parents should supervise their teens because adolescents are secretive when it comes to having their own privacy, which makes parents oblivious toward their actions. However, at the same time parents should consider to keep their teens aware of their surveilling. Ellen Goodman’s article “Big Brother Meets Big Mother” (2007) on the other hand, criticizes that parents who monitor

“Coben the author of the Undercover parent found out that his friends are using spyware on their 15 year olds computer so they can monitor what he does online.( Coben 1).” I believe that they should monitor their kids not spy.Coben was shocked that his friends did this, but then he soon realized why it was a good idea.

My dear child, I have a very important mission for you. You are going to be super hero who will save the world. Our planet is on the edge right now, soon we will be faced with very serious crisis. Energy crisis. We use energy every day and it’s very hard to imagine our world with out of electricity. Can you imagine, that one-day electricity may become as expensive as gold and we won’t be able to use it on regular basis, like we do now. And this day might be coming soon. So let’s imagine that we are on a freeway. Just a few miles over the horizon lies the ultimate exhaustion of our planet’s fossil fuel supply. However, before we reach that otherwise inevitable destination, there are several exits at which we can turn off to evade the unquestionably chaotic and potentially economically ruinous position of losing the energy source upon which we primarily rely. According to the Institute of Mechanical Engineers of MIT, there are 1.3 trillion barrels of proven oil reserve left in the world 's major fields, which at present rates of consumption should last 40 years. Same time the organization also emphasizes that by 2040, production levels may be down to 15 million barrels per day – just 20% of what we currently consume. By that time, it is probable that the world 's population will be double what it is today and much more industrialized, and therefore oil dependent (3).Do you understand how scary it is?!
