Self Destructive Behavior

Introductory Paragraph
Attention Getter! Take your stand. Address the topics of each paragraph.
Restates your introduction in different words. Restates your stand.
Cutting yourself is just plain stupid! Why should an insurance company pay for something a person is obviously doing to themselves? By defining self-destructive behavior, explaining why teens do such a thing today, and what can be done to help them, I will prove that insurance companies should not pay for such behavior.

Nicholas Sparks reeled me in and tore me apart with Choice. Listening to the audio every morning and afternoon driving to and from school, I fell in love with Travis and Gabby as they fell in love with one another. Gabby’s antics as she struggled with the magnetism drawing her to Travis and her conscience reminding her she truly loved Brian, her long time boyfriend, left me laughing and hanging on the edge. Then heart gripping horror strikes. I actually found myself NOT wanting to finish for fear of the ending. A must read for anyone who enjoys laughing and crying with a great book.

The Laughing Man

The book I read was a classic by most standards. The story is called The Laughing Man by JD Salinger . It is about a boy who looks up to his coach of his baseball team and every day the coach stops the bus right before they go to a game and he tells them a story about “The Laughing Man”. The laughing man by my guess is his alter ego or something like that and by the mood of the coach the life of the laughing man, either gets harder or more fantastic. Warning, some words in the book are difficult to read. The author also cleverly put a hole in the story where the reader must infer about the coach’s problem. By Chris
