Is Strong Heart deserving of her name?

Post by Amagine » 01 Oct 2017, 17:01

In Strong Heart's perspective, we are introduced to many people with names that embodies something about them. We see, "Cold Eyes" "Woman Too Soon," "Pretty Face," " Fat Hair, " and many more.

After reading the book do you think that Strong Heart deserves her name? Why do you think that?

I think Strong Heart is deserving of her name simply because of how brave she was to endure all that came at her.

Yes strong heart is a good name for this. Her strength, valour makes her entitled to this name. Apart from this "wanderlust in Olympic peninsula" can also be the name of this book.

I also think that she deserves her name as she overcame many challenges. Don't forget that she was only a kid.

I like the title you gave. :)

I believe the name is perfect. The characters, especially Sarah, showed so much strength and bravery and that's a plus.

She definitely deserves the name. She preserved through abuse, neglect, abandonment, as well as many physical difficulties.

I also think that she deserves her name because her heart is what helped her to endure all the challenges that were thrown her way.

I think she is. She showed strength in many ways, both physically and emotionally. She also displayed bravery, resilience and determination.

It is wonderfully unusual to see a teenage girl as a hero. Her heroism is catching and fascinating in the story of her experiences and life portrayed here.

Yes the mighty heart would have also suited just fine.
