My Sister's Keeper week 5 post A

Vocab
1.ad litem (128)- for the purposes of a lawsuit or legal action only, referring to a temporary guardian
2.derogatory (116)- to lessen the reputation of a person or thing

Figurative language

1." They'll watch the gibbons swinging around like Olympic gymnasts and just start talking about what happens at home, without even realizing what they are doing" (110) This is a example of a simile because it is comparing the gibbons to gymnasts while using the word like.
2." Her eyes go dull as old gold" (113) This is a example of a simile because it is comparing Anna's eyes to old gold while using the word as.
3. " He's asleep, curled like a braided rug to the left of my desk" (117) This is a example of a simile because it is comparing Campbells's dog, Judge, to a rug while using the word like.

Quote

" A photo says, You were happy, and I wanted to catch that. A photo says, You were so important to me that I put down everything else to come watch"(130) This quote was said by Anna and right before this she was talking about how her parents did not take very many photos of her and how she was sad about that. For some reason I just thought this was really cool because it reminds me that when my mom is being annoying and always trys to take pictures of me that its just because she cares about me and that I should be thankful that she does want pictures of me. This reminds me to just keep being thankful for all the great oppurtunties I have.

Theme

I think the theme for this part that I read is to work together and always be there for people who need help.
