Most of us tend to be attracted by stories that reach us on multiple levels, including sadness. There are plenty of books that make you cry (and sometimes laugh) and that you can really sink your teeth into. Here are four of them. 1. The Kite Runner This realistic and moving description of life in Afghanistan accounts for the people who were badly affected by the Taliban. You’ll cry as you get to know the familial relationships and cruelty involved, but you’ll also get a sense of hope as you quickly read through this appealing novel. 2. The Book Thief Let’s put it this way: Death itself is the narrator. The story is about a young girl named Liesel who has to live with foster parents during World War II. On the way to her new home, her brother dies, setting the gloomy tone for the story. There is hope, however, when Liesel discovers her love for reading and makes a relationship with a young Jewish man she helps hide from the Nazis. 3. The Fault in Our Stars This is probably the most likely book on the list to make you cry, as it records the experiences of teens who are dying from cancer and living their last days in love. Their lifestyle is tragic and disturbing at the same time, as we watch their health worsen. The real tragedy is the love story between the main characters, who know that their romance is fruitless. 4. A Child Called “It” Easily one of the saddest stories of abuse in recent decades, A Child Called It is based on the true story of Dave Pelzer, a boy from California who suffered at the hands of his cruel family. The tears will come from both sadness and the inspiration tied to Dave’s fight for survival in an environment where he is believed worthless. 21. What do the four books have in common? A.They are all about cruel wars.			B. They all probably make you cry. C. They are all about suffering children.	D. They are all adapted from true stories. 22. Which book is about a young victim whose family treated him cruelly ?  A.The Kite Runner					    B. A Child Called “It”	 C. The Fault in Our Stars				D. The Book Thief	 23. The passage is intended to __________. A.advise us to buy some books			B. inspire us to read more C. explain why we love reading			D. introduce some moving books	 B Still in shock, I stumbled(踉跄) about the house trying to decide what to put into the suitcases. Earlier that evening I received a call from Missouri telling me that my brother’s family had been killed in a car accident. “Come as soon as you can,” begged my mother.      My husband Larry phoned a few friends to tell them what had happened. Occasionally, someone asked to speak to me. "If there's anything I can do, please let me know," that person would offer kindly.      “Thank you. Thank you very much,” I’d reply. But I didn't know what to ask for. I was too confused to concentrate.  Then the doorbell rang, I opened the door to see Emerson King standing on the doorway. “I've come to clean your shoes,” he said, “I remember when my father died, it took me hours to get the children's shoes cleaned for the funeral. Give me all your shoes.”         While I cleared the supper dishes, Emerson continued to work, saying nothing. Later, when I started to pack, I saw all our shoes stood in a line, shining, spotless and that even the bottoms had been brushed. I could put the shoes directly into the suitcases, knowing they wouldn’t dirty the clothes.      We got to bed late and rose very early, but by the time we left for the airport, all the jobs were done.      Now, whenever I hear of an acquaintance who has lost a loved one, I no longer call with the blurred offer, “If there's anything I can do...” Now I try to think of one specific task that suits that person's need –– such as washing the family car, taking care of the dog, or house-sitting during the funeral.      And if the person says to me, “How did you know I needed that done?” I reply, “It’s because a man once cleaned my shoes.”  24. Why did Emerson King choose to clean the shoes for the author? A. He had long been skilled at doing so. B. There were many dirty shoes in her home.       	 C. It is common practice to do before a funeral. D. He knew what to do from his own experience.       		 25. Which of the following can best describe Emerson King? A. hard-working and determined       		B. neat and careful       C. honest and thoughtful       				D. helpful and considerate 26. What does the underlined word “blurred” in the last but one paragraph mean? A. positive       B. vague      C. clear       D. automatic 27. Which of the following proverbs can be used to best represent the story? A. Blood is thicker than water.     		 B. Action speaks louder than words.   C. A faithful friend is hard to find.   D. A good neighbor is better than a brother far away. C Twenty-five years ago, most young Britons wanted a career in law, to be a doctor, or to take up singing. But today, things stand differently. According to a survey by Tesco Mobile, the “dream job” of young people aged between 16 and 25 in the UK is a video blogger, or “vlogger”. The survey, carried out among 1,002 people, found that as much as 40 percent of them put vlogger as their number one choice on a list of ideal careers. The single factor contributing to this change is undoubtedly the internet and social media. They have made it so much easier to reach a global audience, without having to enter a career in show business the traditional way. “In years gone by, the biggest stars were groomed(打扮) and trained by the Hollywood studios; now, anyone with a computer camera can become an idol (偶像), ”a Tesco Mobile spokesperson said in a news release. “From fashion to comedy, these self-made stars document their hobbies to an adoring fan-base. Vloggers are the big stars of today because they are normal people interacting with their fans about everyday life.” However, what people see is only the bright side of being a vlogger and they ignore the fact that only those who are successful gain fame and fortune. For every success there are a hundred others who never get off the starting block. There are the dreams that come true and the dreams that are bound to remain dreams. This is why despite the popularity of vloggers, some young people chose to follow careers that don’t necessarily earn them fame, but allow them to make good use of the internet to share their hobbies. Young Israeli David Leshaw, for example, runs a business called the Finishers Club. It’s an online platform for runners to keep a record of their races. He states that his job allows him to express his passion, and is always a learning experience. And that’s enough for him. “Generations of today have so many more options and opportunities than older age groups and the internet and development of technology have aided that growth,” said Phil Samuels, spokesperson for UK tech retailer Currys. 28. The job that the British young people dream of is________. A. lawyer			B. singer			C. model			D. vlogger 29. The British young people prefer a different career from the traditional because_________. A.They can do nothing but make full use of the internet  B.the internet can help them become famous more easily C.They expect to be recognized by the Hollywood in the end D.they want more of fame and fortune than the past generation 30. The example of Israeli David Leshaw tells us that __________. A.young people are too dependent on the internet B.those who make good use of the internet gain fame C.young people can show their hobbies via the internet D.those who make good use of the internet are more creative 31. What is Phil Samuels’s attitude towards the internet? A. opposed		   B. supportive 		C. critical			  D. doubtful D The values of artistic works, according to cultural relativism (相对主义), are simply reflections of local social and economic conditions. Such a view, however, fails to explain the ability of some works of art to excite the human mind across cultures and through centuries. History has witnessed the endless productions of Shakespearean plays in every major language of the world. It is never rare to find that Mozart packs Japanese concert halls, as Japanese painter Hiroshige does Paris galleries. Unique works of this kind are different from today's popular art, even if they began as works of popular art. They have set themselves apart in their timeless appeal and will probably be enjoyed for centuries into the future. In a 1757 essay, the philosopher David Hume argued that because "the general principles of taste are uniform (不变的) in human nature," the value of some works of art might be essentially permanent. He observed that Homer was still admired after two thousand years. Works of this type, he believed, spoke to deep and unvarying features of human nature and could continue to exist over centuries. Now researchers are applying scientific methods to the study of the universality of art. For example, evolutionary psychology is being used by literary scholars to explain the long-lasting themes and plot devices in fiction. The structures of musical pieces are now open to experimental analysis as never before. Research findings seem to indicate that the creation by a great artist is as permanent an achievement as the discovery by a great scientist. 32. According to the passage, what do we know about cultural relativism? A. It introduces different cultural values. B. It explains the history of artistic works. C. It relates artistic values to local conditions. D. It excites the human mind throughout the world. 33. In Paragraph 2, the artists are mentioned in order to show that ____. A. great works of art can go beyond national boundaries B. history gives art works special appeal to set them apart C. popular arts are hardly distinguishable from great arts D. great artists are skilled at combining various cultures 34. According to Hume, some works of art can exist for centuries because ____. A. they are results of scientific study B. they establish some general principles of art  C. they are created by the world's greatest artists D. they appeal to unchanging features of human nature 35. Which of the following can best serve as the title of the passage? A. Are Artistic Values Universal?    B. Are Popular Arts Permanent? C. Is Human Nature Uniform?       D. Is Cultural Relativism Scientific?  第二节(共5小题;每小题2分,满分10分) 根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。 How does water shortage affect people?   36  . It is not that they will die of thirst; rather, the poor quality of the water available for cooking and drinking may make them ill. Just as our bodies require water to treat waste products, plentiful water is required for proper sanitation (卫生).  37  . The number of people without adequate sanitation rose from 2.6 billion in 1990 to 2.9 billion in 1999.   38  . In a statement, United Nations officials warned, “When children lack water that is fit for drinking and sanitation, actually every aspect of their health and development is at risk.”   39  . Many crops, of course, are watered by rain, but in recent times irrigation(灌溉) has become the key to feeding the world’s ever-increasing population. Today 36 percent of the world’s harvest depends on irrigation.  If plentiful water flows out of every tap in our home and if we have a clean toilet that conveniently washes out waste, it may be hard to believe that the world is running out of an adequate supply of water.  40 .The situation is even worse in Africa, where many women spend as much as six hours a day fetching water.  A. First of all, it harms their health B. Food production is dependent on water C. And sanitation is truly a matter of life and death D. Growing population is responsible for water shortage E. Unfortunately, only 20 percent of mankind enjoy such advantages F. Our body is 60% water and needs at least a few cups a day to survive G. However, water for sanitation is simply not available for much of mankind 第三部分英语知识运用 (共两节,满分45分) 第一节完形填空(共20小题;每小题1.5分,满分30分) 阅读下面短文,从短文后各题所给的四个选项(A、B、C和D)中,选出可以填入空白处的最佳选项,并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 “What you see as junk, I see as possible treasure.” Next week is clean-up week in my community, so we get to  41   all the things we no longer need to the dumpsters(垃圾运输车) outside the township building.

So, next time you pass by a lost  59 , beaten down and damaged, deserted and seen as   60  by others, remember, that is a vessel(器皿) filled by God, pouring out for His purpose.   41.

Altogether, The Art of War tailored to Chinese enthusiasts is well worth your attention. Hopefully it may cater to your taste.

W: Yes, that should do it. This is going to be the best fruit salad ever!  Text 2 W: And what would you like to drink with your meal, young man? M: I’d like a Coke, please.  W: All right. That’s one medium classic cheeseburger meal with a Coke. Your total is $8.50.  Text 3 M: What’s that book about, Sue? History? W: I’m not really sure. It’s a book of poems, but I have to admit that I have no idea what most of them mean!  Text 4 W: I give up! I’ll never work out this problem. I don’t know why I chose math as my major. M: Take it easy. I think we should take a short break. Your brain could use the rest… Text 5 W: I was going to make a cake for the party tonight. But I just realized we have run out of eggs. Could you go to the supermarket and get some? M: I don’t think we have enough time to make one. Let me just buy a cake from a shop. Text 6 W: Next? M: Can I have a pound of chicken and two pounds of pork, please? W: Do you want a whole chicken, chicken wings, or some pieces without any bones in them? M: The last one. W: OK. That’s $4 a pound, and the pork is going to be $6 in total. Anything else? M: No, that’s it. Can I give you a credit card? W: I’m sorry, but the credit card machine is down.

I tried to make my own colors based on what you taught us in class yesterday. It wasn’t easy, though.  W: Can you see it here? I wanted to make purple, but I didn’t use quite enough blue.

This is part of the fun of painting — discovering what you can do with a little imagination, taking some risks, and trying to do new things.  W: Thanks for the encouragement.

We made up a super fun game. It’s kind of like basketball, but you have to make jokes before you take a shot! W: Well, that sounds very creative! Where’s your sister? M: She’s still doing her homework. I think she’s almost done, though. Where is Uncle Buck? W: Oh, he went out to pick up some Chinese takeout for dinner. I hope that’s OK with you. M: OK with me?

M: Dr. Cardano, I woke up in the middle of the night with a terrible pain in my right foot. W: Did you cut yourself or knock it against something? M: No. It just started hurting all of a sudden. W: Can you describe the pain for me? Is it a sharp pain that comes and goes? Or is it a constant, dull pain that doesn’t really ever go away? M: I suppose it’s more like the first one. But it’s definitely difficult to walk, so it’s not really going away, either. W: Let me see those feet, Bobby.  M: Do you want me to take off both socks? W: Yes, I’d like to compare your right and left foot. Ah, the right foot is pretty red, and it looks bigger than the left one. It also feels warmer. M: What does it mean, doctor? W: Well, I don’t know for sure. It could be one of a couple of things. I’m going to send you up to the lab to get some blood tests. Check in to the lab on the third floor. I’m sending them some instructions. Come back down here as soon as it’s finished.  M: OK. I need to use the restroom first. Can you tell me where that is? W: Go downstairs to the first floor. It’s right next to the elevators. M: Thanks. Text 10 The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is an amusement park with rides and games located right on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. Santa Cruz has been known as a university town and a surfing community since at least 1960. Founded in 1907, it was the first theme park of its kind in California. The most famous ride is called the Giant Dipper, a fast ride made of wood that climbs to 70 feet in the air. Many newer rides have bright lights and modern sound effects, but ever since it was finished in 1924, the Giant Dipper has been the symbol of the park. Other popular attractions include a castle, water rides, and little cars that kids can drive on a special electric track.
