Moral Dilemma Literature Circles


A moral dilemma is where a character is trying to decide to do the right or wrong thing. Sometimes it's hard to know witch one is the right thing to do.

I think the moral dilemma in Wish Me Luck by James Heneghan is that Jamie has to go to Canada and he doesn't know if he should try to be friends with Bleeker because he is the only one on the boat he really knows or just continue fighting with him and letting him beat him up. Or another dilemma could be that his parents are making him go to Canada to get away from war but he doesn't know if he should obey his parents and do what they think is good for him or try to sneak off the boat. The dilemma was solved by Jamie doing what his parents thought was good for him and he became friends with Bleeker.

The moral dilemma for The False Prince was that Sage was Prince Jaron and he had been hiding his identity going by the name of Sage but he had to decide to tell people that he was Prince Jaron or he had to keep his cover by letting everybody think that Prince Jaron was dead so that His father, King Eckberg didn't have to call war on Avenia.

If i was in Jamie's shoes i would go on the boat because i would not want to be close to war at all and i would become friends with Bleeker so i would have someone that i know to talk to that lived the same place as me. If i was in Sage's shoes i would probably not stay as Sage i would want to live with my family but i would just stay in our house and not let anyone see me except for all of the servants and other people that lived in the house.

  1. I really like that you listed multiple moral dilemmas for Wish Me Luck. I also like all of the detail that you put into what you would do if you were in the character's shoes.
