Transcript of St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves

The story is about girls raised by wolves, learning to how to adapt to a new environment where they sometimes get into conflict and also worked hard in everything they did.
There was a lot of competition amongst the females whether it was trying to make themselves better than someone they could not stand.
It consisted of different stages the girls had to go through in order to graduate from St. Lucy’s Catholic School.
The conflict in the story is about the students learning how to get along with each other in a different environment. For instance, the narrator did not like Mirabella in the story because she would do things to agitate the other girls.
The flashback is when the narrator begins talking about each character for instance Jeanette. In the story she describes how the entire pack hated Jeanette because she was successful and was extremely rude and disrespectful to the other wolves.
The foreshadowing events that occurred in the story is when the narrator says that the packs parents were werewolves and lived in caves near the forest. When I read this part, I began to assume that the story was going to take place outdoors in the forest. Another foreshadowing event is when the characters are described such as Mirabella. For example, paragraph nineteen says, “The pack was worried about Mirabella.” This indicates that she was the main problem in every situation. For instance, in paragraph twenty six Mirabella would surprise the pack by laying underneath the bed or chewing on a scapula from the garden.
She was born on July 10, 1981.
St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves was published in 2006.
Karen Russell's first novel was called, Swamplandia! and was published in 2011. It has details for the lives of a family of alligator wrestlers.
Swamplandia! was one the finalist for 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
She was also the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation "Genius Grant" in 2013.
Her childhood home was South Florida and when she left Florida she attended Northwestern University where she almost decided on being a veterinarian.
Her work usually is a blend of realism with some magical realism.

Nuns are the antagonist and are the care givers,teachers,parents like figures to the wolves.
Analysis of the Characters
That the werewolves didn't seem to have just one name like Jacob for example from Twilight and at first one that wouldn't make sense to us.
In the story the werewolves also didn't know how to live like humans at first, so it seemed like they had only ever been kind of foreign.
One of the things I liked about the story for the unique features was that the author had separated it into Stages, which show their progress on how they are doing with adjusting to the new life.
Example:
Unique Features:
Theme
Nuns - society, obedience, loyalty.
Wolves - free spirit, obedience
St. Lucys church - church, sacrifice.
Black shoes - power, servitude.

St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves Rap
Now we are talking about the story of St. Lucy’s Home for girls Raised by Wolves,
There were five stages the females had to go through in order to create a bond in their hood

So this is where it begins
The girls went on an adventure to St. Lucy's
There was the narrator, Mirabella, Jeanette, Sister Maria and Josephine,
Separated by their other brothers
The girls had to learn how to deal with each other

At first it was easy as can be
when the girls were able to do whatever they pleased,
so the pack took an afternoon nap,
got to know one another,
until they met Mirabella and took a step back

Then Stage two,
the girls had rules,
from adapting to their culture,
to missing certain foods,
at first it wasn’t easy dealing with each other,
from conflicts to irritation, to thinking about their mothers,
All the girls worried about Mirabella,
because of how annoying she was to the other fellas
however the wolfpack could not stand Jeanette,
because she had too much success
the narrator was a good girl,
who did what she could to please the world

Stage three,
the girls want to go back to their culture,
they think their lifestyles are super extreme
they meet a new group of purebreds with some fancy names,
and were skilled at playing many games,
the pack got a along with the purebreds
because they were no trying to act like they were better than them

Then Stage four,
the pack felt more at home,
getting used to everyone’s personality
and still dealing with reality
to celebrate their accomplishments,
there was a school dance,
where it would be the ladies and gentlemen,
Shortly after the school graduation
it was great for the girls because they were no longer frustrated

So we say goodbye to stage 5,
where the girl got to visit her mom
and she told her first lie.
I hope the audience had a great time
Unity because in the story the characters learn to develop positive relationships with each other. For instance, towards the end of the story, the girls begin to know one another better.
