Reflection Essay On Me Relating To Tom Sawyer
Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
- Dr. Seuss
Adventure and rebellion is in every twelve year old boy. In the book The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Tom the main character is very adventurous and rebellious. This book was really fun because it was hard to read but once you got the hang of it it was a great read. I think that the author was trying to tell the story of a twelve year old boy in the eighteen twenties who caused trouble and loved adventure and mischief. Every chapter had some theme that showed mischief, adventure and/or trouble. One night Tom and Huck were in the graveyard. They heard some voices and they hid behind a tree. Then they recognized a voice, it was Injun Joe. The next thing they heard was a gun shot and then there was one man lying on the ground and two had run away. They didn’t tell anybody what had happened because they didn't want anyone to know that they had been out in the dark. When the trial came around for Injun Joe, there were many witness that day. They had only seen the men before they went out but they hadn’t seen what happened. Then the lawyer called Tom Sawyer to the podium. Nobody knew why. He denied that he had been there to keep himself safe and Huck. This was an act of rebellion and lying.
