Please Stop Laughing At Me
Conflict and Resolution
One moment that really stuck out to me were when Jodee was at the party at her friend callie’s house and jodee was so uncomfortable with the actions around her she called her mom to come pick her up. That is when all of her friend turned their backs on her. And the cycle of bullying begins to repeat itself at Morgan Hills her new school. Another part in the book that was very memorable was when Jodee was held down against her will by football players and they started to stuff snow down her throat, so much so that she begins to gag and can’t breath. The next part that really popped off the page to me is when godee came home from her public speaking competition Where she had old memorise brought up by a former classmate, she wanted the pain to stop so badly that when she got home she took a large kitchen knife and began to cut her face with it.My personal favorite Quote from the book is on the last page when Jodee says, “ I take a long, deep breathand do somethin I neverthought I’d had the courage to do--but know I must inoder to be free. I let go. I let go of all the hurt and anger that has held me secretly hostage all these years---the rage over tears shed and words never spoken. I let go of the bitterness and sadness, the loneliness that has haunted me, and the stale, unfulfilled daydreams of my youth. This is a meaningful quote tward the book because it shows that Jodde has “ let go” and does not have to carry around the burden of what happened to her all those years ago. She can move on with her life.
