“Superstar Secrets” a Hannah Montana novel adapted by M. C. King - Part 2 Chapter 7
1)Plot Synopsis: On the limo ride home, Jake accused Miley of acting out because she was jealous of him. But he says they can work through her jealousy just as he was working on being normal for her. She says that they have to break up. Jake can tell she is afraid he will tell her Hannah Montana secret and he says he may do just that.
2)Character Development: Jake had not been aware that stealing water from a little girl is a bad thing until Hannah pointed it out. Jake uses a line from one of his movies to express what he is feeling. Miley says normal people don’t quote movie lines in real life. If so, I know many people who aren’t normal.
3)Relevant Cultural Issues: Child water theft. Using movie lines in ‘normal’ life.
4)Hip Slang: “Dang!” and “Sweet niblets!” both used by Miley to express exasperation.
5)Contemporary Cultural References: (Got to remember to delete this heading because I can’t find anything.)
6)Favorite Sentence: “The only reason I did they stupid ‘normal’ thing was for you!”
