Information on the author (background, intent); who it is often determines what is written and why.  What is the author’s purpose?f. Is the book political?  What makes it political?g. An alternative solution if you disagree with the arguments and conclusions of the author or reasons why you support the author’s position.The critique should be 5 typewritten, double-spaced pages.  Please put publication information (city, publisher, date of publication) along with the title of the book and author on the title page.  The title page is not included in the page number count.  If a direct quote is used, cite the page number in parentheses immediately following the quote.  This is not a book review, but a critique.  Thus, do not merely summarize the book’s content.  Offer an analysis of the author’s work.  Number pages in bottom right hand corner.  Use Times New Roman, 12 font. There must be a cover page (not included in the 5 pages).Selected Book: The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
