The Tenth Circle: 4 post A

> *Siege:the act or process of surrounding and attacking a fortified place in such a way as to isolate it from help and supplies, for the purpose of lessening the resistance of the defenders and thereby making capture possible.(176)
* Quarantined: a strict isolation imposed to prevent the spread of disease. (188)

>*"'What?' He could hear the bright blue edge of panic in Laura's voice." (213) I knew this was personification because the author gave the character, Laura's, eyes, which are inanimate objects an action.
*"She'd held the word adolescent on her tongue, enjoying the way it fizzed like a bath bomb." (217) This is a metaphor because it says that a word fizzed on her tongue like a bath bomb. This is giving a something a literal stance.
*"Seeing Trixie, her eyes wide, her face as white as chalk." (218) I chose this quote to represent a simile. It compares Trixie's face to chalk using the word "like".
