Hi, I have to write a 2 page paper about the book No-No Boy, rather than give a plot summary the teacher wants us to discuss important themes. What are some possible topics I could write about and how do I not make the paper turn into a plot summary? Thanks.

  • English -

    Here are a couple of themes you could focus on -- one or both:

    ~ Conflict between generations
    ~ Assimilation into new culture

    The way you avoid simply writing a plot summary is to write an outline or plan very carefully first -- and making sure the events from the story that support your thesis statement are NOT IN ORDER.
