It had to be you the gossip girl prequel pages 1-58 post A

Vocab Words

1. Jutted (page 6) - to extend beyond the main body or line

2.Bilious (page 11) - extremely unpleasant or distasteful

Figurative Language

1."Her entire body was as long and lean and taut as the strings on his Prince titanium tennis racket." (page 7) I new that this was a literary element because it was comparing the two objects using the word as so I new it was a simile.

2."Ew,ew,ew!" (page 53) I new this was a onomatopoeia because this refers to when she smelt something bad and a onomatopoeia is when imitation of sound is associated with the objects or actions they refer to.

3. " He rolled onto his back and wriggled like Serena's long-dead golden retriever,Guppy, when she used to let him loose on the green grass of the Great Lawn in Central Park." (page 3)- So I know this is a simile because it is comparing two things using the word like.
