________________ (is, is not) like me because __________________________
The character of Rachel in the story “Eleven”, is like me because we both at times feel and act like we are three when we cry. We are also alike in that we both had been called on by our classmates for having done something we didn’t do. For example, Rachel was accused of having been seen wearing an ugly red sweater, and I was accused of having taken a classmate’s pencil case. We do differ in that Rachel kept quiet when she was blamed, while I spoke up to try and prove that I was innocent. Lastly, Rachel and I are both alike in that our teachers put us on the spot in front of the class. Rachel’s teacher, Mrs. Price made her put on the red sweater without asking her if it belonged to her, and my teacher accused me of making noises in class. My fourth grade teacher apologized to me for falsely accusing me, unlike Mrs. Price, who did not make any attempt to apologize to Rachel.
