From a plot standpoint, this book was pretty good. It has its moments.
What i didn't really like though was the way it was written. The dialogue was kinda hard to follow at points.

We can learn that we don't always have to be what society wants us to be. We need to find who we are as an individual.

Essential Questions:

Society usually sets an example of who we should be. It makes us believe that we need to someone who is smart, caring, and to have various other qualities.

What does freedom mean to you?
For me, freedom mean to be seperate from all governing forces (society, parents, etc.)

How do you go about making important decisions?
I usually like to think them through carefully before i make a decision, to make sure I am making the right one.

What does Huck Finn teach us about what it means to be human?
It teaches us that to be human, we need to make our own decisions in life, and that we can't be influenced by outside forces.
