Why do we read sad story’s? well we read them so we can feel a connection with them we always think they will walk away happy. But we are taught that from a young age with with all the fairy tales that end i and they all lived happily ever after. When they don’t it takes are understanding to a whole new level and introduces us to a whole new world. Of course we get shocked when they don’t end that way but after a while you start to expect it. I think the point of sad story’s is well to make you feel real and to show that hey these things happen in real life.
I think that the Parson did give up his beliefs to easily for his daughters because if you believe something you will never stop believing it for one bad thing that happens then you just would throw it away that’s not right. Because bad things are always bound to happen to people weather they deserve it or not they do. To believe in something it means that you will do anything to stay with that thing you believe thru better or worse times and if you just give it up it shows you don’t believe in it to well. This has to do with Connor because he needs to stay true to his beliefs to get thru this.

Quote: “They were lucky to find each other. Nobody could take that away.”
Context: In this part of the book Lyla is in the hospital in a coma and her dad is talking to Tripps mom on the phone and they are talking about how they think their kids shouldn’t hang out anymore because they infulence bad behavior and at the end of the conversation Tripps mom says the quote i chose.
This Makes me think: Of my best friend who was going to kill herself and me and her other friends couldn’t stop here from talking about it. Then her now boyfriend but friend at the time. He came to her after he started getting envolved with the wrong people he stopped hanging out with them and started hanging out with her more and she was a whole lot better and she is now alive and happy.

Quote:“hi my name is luke, it rhymes with puke!”
Context: In this part of the book they are trying to write a song and make it work with school guitar which they stole from the school and they are in an abandon tree house when they can’t seem to find words that will make the song sound good and they are having a hard time coming up with a song so Tripp jokingly says that.
This makes me think: Of the time when i wrote my first song it was about my french bulldog Bruno and he was only a few months old and when i finished the song i was so proud of myself that i sang it to everyone i knew and it got really annoying and now when i look back on it. It was terrible and it want to stab it and kill it with fire then laugh at it.

Quote“Their voices fit together so perfectly, it makes him, for the first time, actually like the concept of perfection.”
Context: Tripp and Lyra are at their first gig and on their way their they are remembering the first time they ever sang together and how their voices locked together on the first note it made an amazing sound and how that started them making songs together and how they are now making money off of them and people love them.
This Makes me think: Of when i started singing about a year ago when i was in 7th grade i was at home messing around on my guitar and i started figuring out the rift to the song perfect and my sister walked in my room and we started singing together mind you i sounded horrible but it was really fun and this also reminds me of when i was little me and my grandma would sing together for me tho more like mumbling songs and that i would sing on Guitar hero and i loved it.

Quote: “I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.”
Context: Jacob is getting to know the life of his grandfather’s child hood and is meeting the children he grew up with and finding out what makes him peculiar like his grandfather. The head of the place is telling Jacob about his grandfather and he and Emma Bloom sneak off in the night and Emma tells Jacob his power or ability that makes him special even tho she is not supposed to tell him.
This makes me think of when i didn’t know that i could read and understand music and i thought well that i couldn’t do anything that made me special and i didn’t find out that i could play guitar until i started teaching myself basic chords and i have been playing guitar now for 6 months and i love it.
I think dad’s are Pretty portrayed ya they are guys reckless behavior annoying but if you look hard enough you can see it in everyone. Dads do a lot for the family in most family’s the dad is the one with job and teaches their kids sports and is fun and let you get away with a lot more then they probably should. I think they are portrayed the way they are is because you can see the stupidness in guys easier than girls so we a lot of the time view them as not responsible.I think Connors dad is an okay guy he always is spending time with his new family and doesn’t have time to spend with Connor.

Quote:”So it’s not a decision,really. You stay. It’s only later-years-later that you begin to wonder what might of happened to you if you hadn’t.
Context: In this part of the book Jacob has fallen in love with Emma and her loop, Miss Peregrine is telling Jacob not to be telling the children about his world because well they can’t go to his world and he is wondering if after you lived here long enough if you would think where would i be out their. While he is looking for Emma he gets this weird feeling in his gut.
This makes me think: I chose this passage well cause it got me thinking what would i do if i lived the same 3 days over and over again and how i would think if that happened to me. I think i would loose my mind if I had to do it i couldn’t do it. I feel like it means a lot to me cause i wouldn’t be able to cope mentally of physically.
Stories don’t always need to have a moral or a lesson or all good guys and all bad guys and i guess the reason is that it is for enjoyment to challenge are brain to create a picture of what’s happening to have a stronger brain. Mostly i think that it is for enjoyment to have the thrill of a story. To be honest mostly the little fairy tales we hear as a young kid is well supposed to have lessons to teach the kids not to talk to strangers( Little Red) and not to run into a house without someone there and then go and use all there personal belongings( Goldy Locks).

Context:”A full moon hovered low in the sky, breaking thru reefs of bomb smoke now an then to shine like the lighthouse’s ghostly double.”
In the story Emma ,Jacob, Millard, Olive, Enoch, Bronwyn,and Hugh are trying to get Miss Peregrine back for the second time. Emma, Jacob, Millard, and Bronwyn have to swim to an abandon ship wreck in the middle of the night to look for the people who took her.
This makes me think: It reminds me of war, because my cousin was a Marine Officer and when he would do bomb tests to see if their nuclear bombs and weapons would work and how much damage they did. He would tell me stories of him setting them off and when the smoke was more clear the moon would shine thru then go into hiding again and he said it was like it was saying it may be all good and happy now but it was a reminder that the war would never be over.
