    “Fullmetal Alchemist” by Hiromu Arakawa is a book that perfectly reflects on human behaviour, and though does contain fictional content, makes many references to real world struggles and issues. It deals with small, more intimate issues like doubt of your loved ones, but also reflects on international issues like racism. It is a story that teaches us to not be too quick to react. It teaches us that we should not yearn for the past, and aim for a future where we will not have anything to yearn for

Her argument that Female Gothic

    #3 I think Jan Brett’s website is very beneficial for students and even teachers. She gives a lot of free, creative activities to do.

The site teaches many skills through coloring to reading, games and videos. While watching her video, Jan seems very inspirational and wants children to follow their dreams. #4 a) I didn’t recognize

    Phil’s POV Dan and I were sitting on our sofa watching Fullmetal Alchemist. I wasn’t really paying attention, as Dan’s wrist was facing upward and uncovered by the bracelet he usually wears. The name on it was so boring sounding, “Brad Smith.” He’s probably an office worker, with a boring life. Probably lives in an apartment building like ours, but his flat is twice the size of ours.
