I saw the square in the center of the village. And I saw several streets leading to the square. “See, my dear,” Father said gently. “There is more than one way to the square. Life is like that. If you can’t get to the place where you want to go by one road, try another.” Now I understood why I was there. Earlier that day I had begged my mother to do something about the awful lunches that were served at school. But she refused because she could not believe the lunches were as bad as I said.

When I turned to Father for help, he would not help. Instead, he brought me to this high tower to give me a lesson. By the time we reached home, I had a plan. At school the next day, I poured my lunch soup into a bottle and brought it home. Then I asked our cook to serve it to Mother at dinner. The plan worked perfectly.

In the years that followed I often remembered the lesson Father taught me. I began to work as a fashion designer two years ago. I wouldn’t stop working until I tried every possible way.

D. Answer the questions（根据短文内容回答下列问题): (12 分) August has always been difficult for me. It is the time when I realize that the books my English teacher assigned(布置) to me are not going to read themselves and that I have a difficult month in front of me. You might think that I don’t want to spend my summer reading, but that’s not the problem: I love reading. On the first day of my summer holiday this year, I borrowed A Gathering of Old Men by African-American writer Ernest Gaines. I enjoyed it very much. I read all the magazines that my parents subscribe to(订阅) and spend about 30 minutes every day with the morning newspaper. So why do I hate summer reading for school? Because the books on summer reading lists are often slow-going and just uninviting(不吸引人的). Teachers don’t understand that summer reading can be interesting as well as educational. They choose books called “spinach books”: good for you, but not much fun to take in. Every summer, I read them, hate them and get bitter about the experience. This bitterness started three years ago when I began high school. As preparation, my English teacher told me to read The Age of Innocence(? 纯真年代? ) . At 14, I couldn’t understand the love 100 years ago in the story. I only know my love for baseball. The Age of Innocence was completely different to my life. What is more, sometimes I guess teachers don’t think exciting plots make for “good literature”. To me, a good writer describes events and characters in a way that makes the reader want to know what happens next. If I were making up a summer reading list, it would include The Friends of Eddie Coyle by George V. Higgins, The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe, and Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer. These are all books that have literary value(文学价值) and can also entertain kids. If the teachers could add a little fun into the books they assign, my Augusts would be a lot more enjoyable. 88. Why does the writer think he will have a difficult August? _________________________________________________________. 89. How do we know that the writer likes reading?
