Journal 2 from Logan Sutton

           My name is Logan Sutton.  I am from Lewis Center, Ohio and I went to Olentangy High School.  This year I am living at home and commuting to Marion.  I am planning on transfering to main campus next year.  I am going to major in Data Analytics.  A fun fact about me is I play softball.  I am a pitcher and can throw eight different pitches.  I also do pitching lessons with younger girls for a job outside of school.

            The idea that stood out the most for me in A Long Way Gone was when Ishmael described what he had to go through at such a young age.  He was separated from his parents and was clueless on where they were.  Ishmael also saw many horrifying images that will scar him for life.  I feel like the writing was at its best when Ishmael describes his surroundings on page 18.  He puts a picture in your head by using imagery to describe the disturbing setting.  My main question that I would like to be answered is, will Ishmael find his parents later in the book?


  1. Its really cool that you teach younger girls about softball!!

  2. I also thought this was the best writing when Ishmael was describing his surroundings and what he was going through. I could not imagine going through what he did at such a young age.

  3. Do you love the experience of helping other girls out to get them to improve?
