    “Birthday Party” by Katherine Brush uses literary devices such as tone, point of view, diction, and sensory details to achieve her purpose. The title of this short story is very deceiving the tone is different from the tone of the story. The tone changes from happy to sad as soon as the cake is brought out. The women tried to show affection and love towards her husband by the cake but it was basically turned down. The point of view is through a random person who doesn’t know the couple at all.

    It was hot, sticky, and humid as I walked towards the park where Carly was having her birthday party. I had no desire to go there in the first place, for it was not only the hottest day of summer, but my mother had made me walk there since she had to take the car. Carly wasn’t even my friend, my best friend Emma and I are just nice to her because she doesn't really have friends.

    memories that I can think of that I want to write about, but I'm going to pick my 13th birthday party. The reason I am picking this is because I really enjoyed myself during this time.
