Слайд 8: My Predictions
I consider, there will be many new characters, especially men. I believe Bridget will find her love, a real man. Probably Daniel will understand his mistakes and also will fall in love with Bridget. I hope that Bridget’s parents will make up. I am really interesting in Bridget’s mother’s career. Can she do it or not ? No, the characters are almost the same. Mark Darcy plays more prominent role in the second part of the book. He falls in love with Bridget first, but then decides to marry another girl. Bridget’s mother has a successful career, as well as great problems with her new friend Julio.

Слайд 10: T he message of the book
Women should have dignity. Until you start respecting yourself, no one will respect you. Women are stronger than they are. A woman is a full-fledged person, not an attachment to a man.
Слайд 11: W hat this book made me think about ?
The book made me think about the self-esteem. Your choice should only be yours, not your parents or friends. If you really want to change something, you will find a way to do it. Crying and complaining is not the best way to implement your plan. Any person should have a goal in life. Otherwise, you give in to your weaknesses and have not got any progress. Friends are an important part of our lives, where we draw support. You do not need to have a lot of friends, as long as they are real.
