B.   Essay
     I Heard the Owl Call My Name is a novel that deals with many themes, including the

     through shared experiences, and the idea of change as an inevitable, but sometimes
     unwelcome, part of life. In a well-developed, thoughtful essay, discuss one of these
     themes, being sure to cite specific examples from the novel to support your point of
     view. For a more well-rounded essay, look at your theme through the eyes of more
     than one character.
