SA #15: I Capture the Castle

1. "I am writing this journal partly to practise my newly acquired speed-writing and partly to teach myself how to write a novel," Cassandra explains (4). What kind of a writer is Cassandra? Describe her style, giving a few examples.

2. Cassandra writes that she "[is] seventeen, look[s] younger, feel[s] older." Later on, when she first meets Simon and Neil (50), Simon "take[s her] for a child" (52). How does Cassandra's age affect the way she understands the world around her? Choose one example to discuss briefly (just a few sentences).
