A Song Below Water: A Novel | Bethany C. Morrow

In this book, there is a paragraph that says, “The inside of her throat must be burning. It must feel tight and tense, like a rubber band stretched too far. She told me once that it‘s like choking on a rock of fire that refuses to melt down, and that must be why she‘s teary-eyed.” This creates a mood of sadness for the reader and the tone the author was going for is a sense of dread.

Girl Mans Up | M-E Girard

An example of an allusion in this book is when Pen says Blake looks like a typical rock band singer.

TheMrsShaw If he or she referenced a specific rock band, then yes, this would be an allusion. If it's just generic, then that really isn't an allusion, unfortunately. 5mo

Girl Mans Up | M-E Girard

The denotative (literal) meaning of “girl mans up” would be a girl turning into a man but when you add connotation (figurative) to the phrase, it could mean a girl being tough or a girl being brave.
