    • Hi Annie,
      You did a good job of explaining the book and how the definition of the American Dream is incredibly idealistic or popular during the time I assume your book took place. I like how you examined each character’s arc because it helps me understand differing points of view along with how family is a harder thing to keep steady than one may expect. I also like the socioeconomic criticism you tied into this by talking about the money involved in the story.

    • Hello, Annie. I thought your post was persuasive and I agreed with many of your points and pieces of evidence. The portion where you talked about how peoples view change throughout the years, made me think about the Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education court cases. Because in Plessy v. Ferguson the court concluded that segregation was fine as long as the people were equal, but in Brown v. Board of Education segregation was viewed as unfair and unequal. Overall, this post helped me gain another perspective on the values of freedom and equality. What do you think the government should do to increase the amount of equality between people?
