Something Wicked This Way Comes
1. In my opinion, one of the best moments in Something Wicked This Way Comes was when Will and Charles were trapped in the mirror maze. The reason I like this scene is because I believe it shows how Charles changes as a person. In the beginning of the book, Charles wasn’t very ‘brave’ and didn’t accept himself. However, when Will told him that he loved him and accepted his dad the way he was, Charles began to believe in his self. Because of this, Charles was able to laugh at the carnival, specifically at the mirror maze, and was able to destroy it. I can very much relate to this event.

I, like Jim, actually like fictional books more than other genres, but both are still fun to read. Also, I think that the library showed part of Charles’ character. Libraries are usually quiet, so maybe that’s why Charles is quiet and lonely. However, even though Charles wasn’t exactly the risk-taker,...
