Beginning-Middle-End? Key Facts "Once upon a time there was a little girl," she told herself silently,"who had a beautiful red cloak. Her mother made it for her."
"She wore it so often that everyone called her Little Red Riding Hood." It was all imaginary anyway - not real. It was only in the fairy tales that people were called upon to be so brave, to die for one another. Not in real-life Denmark. "I'll race you to the corner, Ellen!" Annemarie adjusted the thick leather pack on her back so that her schoolbooks balanced evenly. Beginning Quote Ending Quote Number the Stars
By Lois Lowry Presentation by: Rosemary Hilton She opened her hand and showed him the necklace. "Can you fix this? I have kept it all this long time. It was Ellen's"
Her Father took it from her and examined the broken clasp. "Yes," he said. "I can fix it. When the Rosens come home, you can give it back to Ellen."
"Until then," Annemarie told him, "I will wear it myself." Annemarie Johansen Outer Desire:
Safety for her best friend Ellen and her family and for the war to be over.
Annemarie wants normalcy.
She wants the Nazis soldier to leave her country and the war to be over.
She wishes that her little sister could have cupcakes and shoes again.
She wishes that she does not have to be brave.
She wishes for a time when it is safe for Ellen to come home. "How brave are you , you little Annemarie?" he asked suddenly.
"Not very" she confessed, looking at the floor of the barn.
"I think that is not true," Uncle Henrik said. "I think you are like your mama, and like your papa, and like me. Frightened, but determined, and if the time came to be brave. I am quite sure you would be very, very brave."
"But," he added, "it is much easier to brave if you do not know everything. Neither do I. We know only what we need to know." "That's all that brave means - not thinking about the dangers. Just thinking about what you must do." Quotes
