Strange mum

Short Plot:

The concept of a terminal illness always brings a lot of pain, especially when the sick children who have not managed to see anything in this life. It gives a lot of pain to their relatives, who feel powerless, helpless. In books:”My sister´s keeper”, Kate’s mother did everything that she could to save his sick daughter. She gave birth to another child in order to reduce the suffering of Kate and save her, using her younger daughter as a donor. Later, a younger girl to grow and refuses to sacrifice himself for his sister. Subject to the right of the minor daughter against their own parents.

Character analysis (Ms Fitzegerald):

From all character, I didn´t understood Anna´s and Kate´s mum ms Fitzgerald. Of course I can understand mother loves but I can´t understand how she can kill her own child in favor of another own child.?! I think if you have for example two child you must love them both equally.
All of ms Fitzgerald action, I has shock when she in tribunal spoke only about what is better for Kate, and she doesn´t think that Anna is too her daughter.

I think that she is perfect mum for Kate. He was ready to do anything that Kate would be happy. Once, when Kate didn´t want to go out on the ground because she was bald, and all staring at her, and she thought that she isn´t pretty. Her mother went to the bathroom and cut herself bald to be the same as Kate. She left her job in order to be more with Kate.

But unfortunately, with Anna, she was different. Of course she is not bothered her, bought her a variety of goods and in no way devalued her and I am sure that he loved her own way, but  Katie was clearly more important to her. And she was willing to give up in order to cover Anna was alive.

    I’ve seen parts of the movie version of this book and I must admit that the subject is rather interesting. The title is true, she is strange in her own way. The analysis was pretty good but it could’ve been more profound.

    The structure is very good. You had a consistent line throughout the text and you obviously had thought of the structure before starting to write. You described the charatcter nicely. You raised the fact that she is favoring more Katie than Anna. There’s a couple spelling mistakes but they don’t damage the text.

    There is a picture and a video included in the analysis. That is a big plus! The mind map was very good and well thought. And the analysis is based on the map, which is a good thing. It clearly helped you to write your analysis.

    I like how you have used many paragraphs to make the reading more easy. And the 10 challenging words were translated correctly.

    I liked it!
