Parvana’s mother is also going through hard times but is adjusting. Still, Parvana’s encounter with teacher Mrs Weera brought back her mother’s good friend into her life.
The two women created a secret group who published a magazine that was to be sent out to women of the world.
Parvana was so upset as they had to cut her hair as her hair defined her as a girl but this is the only option she had.
Parvana is now living her life as a lie and everything now depends on how well she can act as the boy.
For this essay, discuss the parallels between Will and Marcus’ coming of age.
Do you think that their coming of age was something that was spurred by their relationship, or would they have come of age on their own?Parvana would always assist her father at the market place because he is disabled and only has one leg.Girls are forbidden in the market place and forbidden to leave the house.The third person omniscient point of view is very common for modern novels yet this novel adds the twist of alternating narrators.Why do you think the author chose to have both Marcus and Will narrate the story?All four incorporate at least one of the themes found in “About a Boy” and are broad enough so that it will be easy to find textual support, yet narrow enough to provide a focused clear thesis statement.These thesis statements offer a short summary of “About a Boy” in terms of different elements that could be important in an essay.Thesis 2: is told in the third person omniscient point of view with alternating narrators.The story begins with Marcus and moves to Will, and the pair alternate chapters to tell the story.With her city having so many restrictions and her father being taken into prison, Parvana’s life has become full of heartache.The changes that have affected her and her family’s life have been extremely harsh and sad.
