Transcript of Does My Head Look Big In this?

Does My Head Look Big in This? By Randa Abdel-Fattah Resolution Amal Setting This takes place in 2006, all year long. I know this because in the book, the Bali Bombing occurs in present tense. It also takes place in Australia. Exact location wasn't specified. Conflicts Amal encounters many predicaments in this book, mainly because she feels like she doesn't fit in. Another is how she has a big crush on someone she can't have. Her situation is man vs. man. When her friend, Leila, runs away, Amal is heartbroken. She feels lonely and depressed, but when her debate match came, she felt permanent confidence inside her. Courage that her best friend gave her. She thought of all the courage Leila had to go through all of those family problems she went through daily. Courage was the resolution. Theme Witty, sarcastic, kind and sweet all packed in one. Calls her self a "true to death" Palestinian.

"That's right. I clean my feet five times a day. So technically,that means that at any given time of day, my feet are cleaner than your face.'' Adam Funny, athletic, lazy, and sensitive. He has a crush on Amal.

"Aye, I'm just getting in touch with my feminine side'' he said in a high pitched tone, batting his eyelashes flirtalitiously. Leila Patient, sweet, comedic, and dramatic. She's so depressed with her family that she soon ran away... "Let's not talk about it. There are plenty of things that Mom tries to make me feel guilty about." Perspective This story is told in first in first person perspective. Introduction Amal is power-walking on the treadmill and all of a sudden is encouraged by Rachel in Friends to wear the Hijab. Rising Action Amal's best friend, Leila, is being pressured by her mom to get married. Leila refuses because she wanted to finish her studies. Climax The climax occurs when Leila runs away from home. Falling Action When Leila is finally found, Amal decides that she will be who she wants to be. The courage Leila had astounds her. Falling Action In the end, Amal chooses to continue wearing the hijab and be whoever she is. The theme, I personally think, is to be who you want to be. Nobody is boss of what you should like or eat or wear. You should be yourself. Basically, long story short, be unique. I Loved The Novel I liked the novel because I can relate to her in about every way; from parents with Arab accents to personality, I feel her in every way . Prezi by Houda
