Well, come on now! Let's start with a little more than that. Are you having trouble getting yourself to read the book? (that happened to me a lot in high school) Or are you unsure of what a thesis statement is.

Your thesis statement is the message you are sending with the essay. In school, essays are chores, but as art and essay is intended to really connect with the audience about a topic. You should pretend that you are writing this because you are actually interested in it and you have a unique insight from the story. Every person who reads it has a unique perspective, so make a thesis statement about the profound truth you learned from the book.

And if that doesn't work, look at sparknotes.com to help you appreciate the themes o the book.

How to write an essay in APA format on the book The Pearl?

I am currently writing a essay on John Steinbeck's, The Pearl.
It has to be in APA format, and I have 5 topics I need to cover. For each topic I need to have at least 2 quotes from the book to add as well.

The 5 topics are:
-Materialism corrupts and destroys
-Love can give someone great courage and strength
-Creatures naturally prey on those who are weaker then themselves
-Knowledge is power, but a power that can be abused
-A dream is good until it begins destroying other things of value in a person's life
I've never written in APA format before so i'm a tad confused. Also I'm stuck on how to start.
If anyone can give me some advice, tips or help it would be greatly appreciated!
