Ray told Lily that she accidentally shot her mother one night when her parents were fighting. The only love in Lily's life is from Rosaleen, a black lady employed as Lily's nanny and housekeeper. At night, bees that live in Lily's bedroom walls, come out and buzz around her room. T. Ray doesn't believe Lily.

Joy Luck Club
24th October 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

A relatively modern book, Amy Tan's Joy Luck Club is an easy, albeit very interesting read and makes for a good book report topic. At the onset of the novel, the protagonist, Jing-mei Woo's (June), mother, Suyuan, dies. The Joy Luck Club is a club that Suyuan created during the war in China. Similar to another "gambling" club in America, Bunco, the purpose of the Joy Luck Club is to allow a group of women to spend time together, eat, and play mah jong, a gambling game. Suyuan had originally put the group together as a way to create camaraderie during a difficult time in China. During the war, Suyuan's husband died and she was forced to abandon her twin daughters because she could not take care of them. She eventually married a man named Canning Woo and moved to the United States. The Joy Luck Club was reformed in the U.S. with new members: Ying-ying St. Clair, Lindo Jong, and An-mei Hsu. Each of the women has daughters who are similar in age to June. Throughout the novel the relationships of these women, as well as their relationships with their daughters, are tracked. Each relationship carries elements of both sadness and joy. Although June feels like she barely knew her mother, having grown up more as an American versus a Chinese woman, she joins the Joy Luck Club upon her mother's death. She soon learns that her sisters have been found in China, and the other women in the Joy Luck Club pool together their money to send June to meet them. . . . .

Franklin was born in 1706 in the United States. Franklin was the fifteenth of seventeen children. Franklin's father, Josiah, wanted him to be a minister and follow in his footsteps. But after it became apparent that Franklin's strong suits were reading and writing, he moved to Philadelphia to work for a man named Samuel Keimer. In Philadelphia, Franklin made many prominent contacts, including several politicians. He eventually set out for England, where he worked for a printer for a year and a half, alongside his friend, James Ralph. By 1726, Franklin had returned to Philadelphia. He ended up taking over The Pennsylvania Gazette from Samuel Keimer. Franklin married Deborah Read in 1730. They have two children together. In fact, the first part of The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is written to his son, William. . . . .
