Seconds Away Project Essay

1340 words - 6 pages

The main Character in the book that I read is Mickey Bolitar. He has blue eyes,short brown hair, is six feet four inches and weighs just over two hundred pounds. He acts like a normal highschool kid and he can be very curious sometimes. When he got curious about things in the book he usually got in trouble with the police or with his uncle. Like when he was at the “Bat Lady’s” house he went inside without even knocking on the door and when he was inside, somehow the house caught on fire and burned down. The police came and had arrested him for breaking and entering. That time when he was curious he got in trouble with the police not his uncle. His personality is curious,protective,willing,friendly and nice. He was once very protective of his friend Ema when some of the mean guys of the school said “Hey ema mooo!” When he heard that he was about to explode but Ema gave him a look that said don’t. He interacts nicely with the other characters except with the people he doesn’t like and the people that are mean. Mickey was my favorite character in the book.

The main idea of this book is that we are all stronger than we realize. It was developed through the book by all of the times that Mickey and his friends were in trouble with really bad people but pulled through it and kept going. Like when they were inside their school on a friday night after everyone had left. It was about 9:00 p.m. and they were looking in a suspicious locker. They had found drugs and a lot of money in the locker,when they all looked at each other and said “What should we do?” Then two really big guys with guns showed up behind them and said “Give it to us”. So right away Ema rolled into a classroom and called the police and Mickey used his training from karate and took down both guys. When the police got there they were arrested. That showed that Mickey was stronger than he thought by taking down both of the bad guys.

The authors point of view in this book is first person. It reflects in the text by making it so Mickey is telling the story. It also helps Mickey get across the main idea of the story and the things he goes through in the book. Like when he was at basketball tryouts and he got kicked off because of how many times he got in trouble with the police and there’s a policy that if you are on the team or if you are gonna make the team that you are not allowed to get in trouble with the police. So the point of view shows how it all went down when he got in trouble and not just it being told and described. The story came from Mickey. It explains how he acts around other people and what his personality is like. That’s why the first person point of view is so important for this book.

My first word that is very important is murder,the connotative meaning is when someone is killed and the denotative definition is the killing of another human being under conditions specifically covered in law. It’s important to the book because they are solving...
