Victoria Rivera | 3 comments The Trouble in Me
The theme of acceptance is developed in this book by viewing the mind of a young boy named Jack and his struggles with fitting in with his family as well as his peers. Jack is desperate to fit in anywhere he can, even if that means becoming friends with the juvenile delinquent next door. How far Jack goes to confirm his loyalty to the new found friendship is dangerous to both his life, and his future.

Nadia  Maji (kawaiineko) Calamity- This book shows the theme of love and acceptance because the main character David has to accept that he is the very thing he hates (mostly) and is out to kill. It shows love because he falls in love with an epic and his love overcomes his hate for epics.

Charlie is now a freshman in high school and is not accepted by most people in his school, so he just stays to himself. Charlie met a girl named Sam and her brother, Patrick. Patrick and Sam are very accepting of Charlie even though he is four years younger and socially awkward. Because of Sam and Patrick befriending Charlie, his confidence is much higher and he has started to open up more and do more things out of his comfort zone.
