    • Dallana,

      I really enjoyed your post. Your quick summary and background on the book was beautifully written and allowed me to really understand your argument. My favorite line was “But what is that ideal type, what is pretty? ” This rhetorical question, really made me as the reader think how hard the adjective “pretty” is because of how subjective it is and how much weight it carries anyways in our world. When I read the book, I visualized the characters in my head and now I am thinking more and more about that visualization in terms of what I believed “pretty” and “ugly” meant which is unfair and a product of what society and the media has made me believe.

      I look forward to reading your future posts!

    • Hi Dallana,
      Very nice article. I believe that drug use is a very important topic to be discussed, especially today since drugs are so much more common among the youth. I agree with you that two main reasons people use them are towards depression and because of peer pressure. Drugs can be very harmful to one’s life and people need to find other ways to help them instead of depending on drugs for that help.

    • Hi Gabby,
