Lucky Blog #3 Reflection I can’t begin to imagine how Alice feels. But I’ve learned so much from her through her rape. She’s grown so much throughout the whole process. I believe as I’m still growing up, developing, and learning that I’m to like her and how she’s grew. The lesson I derived from the book though that was no matter what you go through you can still push yourself, and go through. Which she did, and everybody makes mistakes but also a lot of people learn from their mistakes and that’s the good thing about it. That’s the main point that I got out of the whole book. I enjoyed reading the whole book. It really pulled me and had my attention the whole the book. My favorite part though was when she got home, and she saw the teddy bear, that’s when she actually began to grow. She really opened up so much when she didn’t have to and I enjoyed that.

Lucky Blog #2 Characters Point of View Alice Sebold is the main character of the book. She was a college in freshmen who’s been raped. Alice feels like she can’t be herself anymore, since the rape has happened. Alice was a virgin and her virginity was token by a stranger so within herself she has to build herself back up. She doesn’t see herself as valuable anymore, and that’s the sad thing. She’s been ruined on the inside by physically and mentally.

Alice didn’t want her mother to be disappointed, it was kind of weird though. Alice explained on her ride back home about an abandoned house now that had a doll sitting in the middle of the sidewalk that meant something too her. If you read the book it’s very significant.  Everyone was looking at her differently when she walked back from the sight where she was r…
Lucky Blog#1 Non-fiction Lucky is a very interesting book, but you have to be very mature to read it. This is a book mature because it deals with rape and depression. Alice Sebold is the main character and she is a freshman in college who has been raped. She’s taught me a lot through telling her story. We always have to watch our surroundings because when she was walking it was midnight and she was all alone. That incident tells us a lot about how we have to watch our surroundings, what we do, and even who we hang around. We have to pay attention to this because it’s for our benefit.
Not too long ago a video went viral on Facebook about a girl named Kaneeka Jenkins who was with friends and she was raped. The only difference between her and Alice is that Kaneeka died. This story and Alice’s teach me, personally, a lot. Specifically, her experience has taught me that I need to be more careful, and more lenient, and that I should not go anywhere by myself unless I know that I’m for sure …
