*Character Evidence*– Jonas has to deal with adversity and stress in his community.– The Giver hepled him deal with his adversity by giving him memories such as color and pain.
Victor’s adversity• Victor Is starting 7th grade and he want Teresa to be his girlfriend.• He follows her to be in the same classes as her.
Victor’s Perseverance• Victor pretend to know French to impress Teresa. He was embarrassed but Teresa believed he knew French.• Since Victor pretended he knew French Teresa wanted him to teach her.
Amigo Brother’s• The Amigo brothers were distracted because they were best friends and they had to fight each other.• They didn’t want their friend ship to come between the fight.
The AmigoBrothers•They trained separately to avoidattention.•During the fight they tried not to hurteach other.•When the fight was over they walked awaytogether without hearing the winner.
Reflection:• I think that the characters came over their adversity by standing up for there rights, doing what’s right, overcoming there fears and be a big and better person.• My favorite character is the old man in the Giver because he was a great and powerful person who helped people in the community.
