Week 4-Post A

pg. 114- 155


pg 127-Panacea: a remedy for all disease or ills; cure-all

pg 126-Exorbitant: exceeding the bounds of custom, propriety, or reason, esp. in amount or extent; highly excessive

Figurative Language--

1) "I was frozen but couldn't shiver."--metaphor because she really isn't "frozen" so it os comparing her to something else without using like or as.

2) "It felt like I had been through a long, drawn-put battle or extremely sick."--Simile because "like" is being used to compare herself to a battle.

3)"Can't be alone when the darkness falls."--Personification is used because it is saying that darkness is falling but darkness can't fall so it is giving "darkness" a person's feelings.


"One thing about the SATs is that it sort of breaks down the barriers of those who take it. No matter how rich or poor your parents are, you still have to take them in the same testing centers, with the same fluorescent lights, same gray wall-to-wall, and same slightly off smell."--This is significant because it is saying that being rich/poor does not give you a disadvantage to the SATs.


One theme in this part of the book is that you should tell your true feelings to the one you like. The reason for this is that the one you like might like you back but thinks you don't like them back. "Uh, up until today, you've never really asked." pg 154 Is something that the guy Thyme likes said to her.
