8. Compare and Contrast
Last semester I read the book "The Glass Castle." This semester I chose the book "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." They were both good books with a purpose to inform the reader. They were both mainly focused on one major character and then on many minor characters. The books are both nonfiction so they both tell a story about a real event that occurs. They can both relate in the same way that each family had difficulties. They have many similarities along with differences. Some differences were the subject each book revolved around. "The Glass Castle" focused on the character's family constantly moving from place to place with little support from the parents. The book I just read is about science. It explains the use of cells that have helped future sciences. They had different events occur along with a different conclusion in each book.
