I want to be like Gideon Lee. My lips move as I read the title of the essay. They twitch as I stifle a snicker. Looking around the room, I make sure no one has seen my facial tic. My eyes light upon the Presidents' pictures lined up on the wall.They face me, each with a unique expression, and I wonder what they were thinking while they posed. They are above the clock so my gaze naturally falls on it. It's almost time for lunch.

  1. Sounds like the narrator is in high school. I'm curious about why the essay, why did she laugh?

  2. The cover of your book confuses me. The lettering makes it seem like it will be a fluffy romance, but the quote shows me there is more depth to the book.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
