Courage can help in many situations
Anna Lewis 6/7
Development of Theme Analysis
In Freak the Mighty the conflict and characterization in Freak the Mighty helps find my theme. In the story a lot of bad things happen to Freak and Max. To get through those things the have to have courage. If they don't have courage, they would not have gotten through anything. Max and Freak would have died in the book if they didn't have courage. I think Freak had the most courage. Freak was the mind of the machine. Except Freak was the driver. Mac was the machine. They had to be brave and do things they wouldn't normally do. They had to be courageous and go for it. They might have been afraid, but they were courageous. They had the courage to do anything. Freak gave Max courage. This shows the theme courage can help you in any situation, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Reflection and Application of Theme
I agree with this theme. The whole book is about courage. When Max and or Freak have something happen to them, they have to have a lot of courage to get through it. The author made sure everyone knew the theme. He really had a lot of situations where the characters in this story had to be courageous. In our generation. there is a lot of bullying. When you see someone getting bullied, you have to have a lot of courage to do that. You don't ever know what will happen, but at least you had the courage to do something big and help someone out. The person you helped out might have been getting bullied a lot. Courage can save someones life. It can also save your life. You may not know that you are helping someone that much, but you are. Every time you do something big and courageous, you are helping someone. No matter who it is. It might be you, it might be your friend, a stranger, or even a bully. Having courage, no matter how big or how small, is a big deal. Not everyone has the courage to help out a friend or help someone. This book has a lot of courageous people.

The Young Man and The Sea is one of my favorite books of his. The back round of this book is when he was a young man and he went sailing. He built boats and he loved the sea. So he decided why not make a book about this.
