    I hate An Unknown Girl - find it far too boring, and the points are just the same thing being rehashed. Hard to be original etc if 300 other students in that hall are writing the same think.

    I hope Veronica comes up! Or, better yet, Out Out.
    The did out out in June 2012 idk if they'd put it in again since they put in a repeat one... Toching the void in paper one. However I like an unknown girl personally so I kinda hope that comes up 😂 hate Veronica 😫

    I am yes! However, i dont have the time at this moment as i need to revise for maths! Here are some brief things:

    Just talk about how she hides her emotions etc (Perhaps the reason for this is pride - wants to be seen in the same position as Okeke in hierarchy etc. Pride is of course one of the seven deadly sins etc)

    Perhaps she puts on a facade, evident by "turning to wall" etc - hiding her raw emotions. It's a really good text for juxtaposition and also lays of emotions which Veronica seems to have.

    The stream is significant etc. "Twig" is significant as it represents Veronica "bobbing" away - twig is insignificant like veronica etc. Twig is part of a tree - Tree represents their society (V being part of it); V is a mere microcosm etc. Or tree represents Okeke (showing their bond) etc etc.

    Thanx but my book looks quite different from yours, not sure whether the content inside is the same. But have you answered all the questions for Veronica. We haven't done them in class ..
    Maybe if you could take a couple of pics of them, that would be great!
