Esther’s PosterExit Through the Gift Shop Created by Mountain District Christian School
My name is Esther.
I am from Mountain District Christian School and I am in Year 7.
The book I have chosen to do my creative response on is Exit through the Gift Shop, by Maryam Master.
The author uses an interesting style which shows graphically what a twelve year old’s diary might look like.
This story is about a 12 and a half year old girl, named Anahita, who has recently been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, (a kind of cancer). And has basically been told that she is dying. Ana faces all sorts of challenges, such as a bullying situation, family trouble, and the realization that life is often absurd.
Anahita is on a wild roller-coaster of life and death, kindness and cruelty, ordinary and extraordinary.
But she has a few things to do before she exits through the gift shop……..
