I Am Princess X
The literary term I thought fit the most was symbols because they used a lot of little symbols in the story that made a huge impact in the story. While one of the main characters, May was reading a comic book that her and her best friend that passed away, Libby, made but never really published she noticed that in the story it showed how Libby and her mom passed away but she was never really told the real story. In the comic book (pg 39-40 & 46-48) it shows a women getting shot by a man, the women and her daughter get in the car, the car falls off the bridge and the mother dies but the daughter survives but was never found. So later that night she asks her dad "She drove off the bridge and drowned. But not before someone shot her." ....Where did you hear that? On the internet?" (pg 43). The next morning Libby was reading the comic again and realized that the girl in the comic, Princess X, said something that Libby said before she passed away. " "Gray Girl" could mean only one thing, one person. It could only mean Libby." (pg 36), " One of the questions asked for the students race , and Libby wrote in gray next to the line that came after other." (pg 9).

Middle School: Escape to Australia-
My main character in this book is named Rafe Khatchadorian, his role in this book is well he's the one who tells the story and the story is about his adventures. Rafe's is one of the bad kids at his school, he's a troublemaker. As he stated "That's right, you heard me. Since the last time we spoke, I have NOT been expelled."(page 8) He's also a really good artist because in the book there was an art competition to go to Australia, as he said "But maybe there was an alignment of the planets or something, because.... I won. That's right. A trip to Australia...".(page 34) By the end of the book I believe that he's going to change because of all the new experiences he's going to have. I also believe that he's going to be grateful for being able to have to go on that trip to Australia.
