"her hands were knotted together between them like a heart that had broken it's bounds."(55)This is a simile. I know this because it is comparing two things by using like.
"She was an old pair of shoes, tossed to the side forever."(22)This is a metaphor because it is comparing her to an old pair of shoes, with out using like or as.
"The hardwood floor was cold as ice."(54) This is an example of a simile because the author uses as to compare the floor and ice.
