A thesis statement is the main point or focus of an essay. The thesis appears as the last line of your introduction paragraph. You will spend the rest of your essay trying to prove your thesis with evidence/support. The thesis is a statement, not a question or a fact. Someone may disagree with you and your thesis, and that is why it is critical to provide support for what you believe. 

For example: In Louise Erdrich's "Red Convertible," the car symbolizes Lyman and Henry's unique relationship.
