Transcript of From Bad to Cursed- ISU

Independent Novel Study
Setting
Importance
The main setting is not the most important setting in the novel because not all of the important events that happen in the story take place in Silver Sage Acres. The most important thing that the main setting did for the story was help set the mood.
Mood
The main setting does help set a mood. The description given at the beginning of the book makes the main setting sound like a very melancholic place to live ,but at the same time it is mysterious because it makes you wonder why the author started the book that way. The book can be depressing sometimes, but at the same time it is full of mystery and suspense which is why the main setting does help set a mood.

Description
Silver Sage Acres is a very boring place to live. All the houses look the same. There are no decorative items in any of the windows, no mailboxes outside the houses and no cars in the driveways. It does not seem like many exciting events take place here.

*This book is a great page-turner! I really enjoyed this novel because the author made the perfect job of combining a thrilling plot with comical relief. I would recommend this novel to someone that doesn't mind scary stories, and enjoys reading mystery books.

*My favourite part of this novel was when Alexis finally realizes Aralt is evil and she does not let him control her anymore. This is my favourite part because most of the suspense in the novel is found during htis part. I also enjoyed it because this is the part where Alexis shows that she is capable of saving everyone she cares about.

Plot
Themes/
Issues
What the author of this book is trying show is that there are some people in the world that will go to extreme extents to make themselves "perfect" and in the process start to forget their morals and what is important to them. I think the author is trying to tell us that there is no sense in striving to be perfect if that is what is going to happen to you.
The theme in this novel was implicit. In the novel, it never talked about people loosing their morals when trying to make themselves perfect.
